How it works
Catalogic DPX is a comprehensive and efficient data protection solution that supports disk, tape, and cloud. With our patented block-level protection technology, backup time and impact are significantly reduced by 90% for both physical and virtual servers.
  • Our intelligent data protection feature for Micro Focus Open Enterprise Server (OES) is designed to be cluster aware, ensuring seamless operation. DPX utilizes a virtual node concept that treats each individual server node within the cluster as a unified entity, simplifying management tasks. 
  • The simplicity of OES backups and restores is a hallmark of Catalogic DPX. By selecting the virtual node object, users can effortlessly restore data to the correct volume without requiring knowledge of the data source or the specific node responsible for the backup. This streamlined approach eliminates confusion and ensures a quicker and trouble-free recovery process. 
  • When it comes to OES backup and restores, Catalogic DPX provides granular file-level backup and recovery support for Micro Focus OES 2018 SP3, OES 2023, and GroupWise mailboxes. Leveraging the power of Microfocus GroupWise APIs on OES Linux, DPX enables efficient backup and recovery processes. Additionally, DPX extends its support to include backup and recovery of eDirectory and Groupwise applications, catering to the needs of devoted Novell aficionados. 
Choose Catalogic DPX as your go-to solution for efficient OES backup, GroupWise backup, and comprehensive data protection for Novell applications. Experience the flexibility, simplicity, and reliability that Catalogic DPX brings to your data protection strategy.

Five Key Recovery Scenarios in a GroupWise Environment
Recovery Scenario 1: Disaster Recovery This is the most severe scenario, when all GroupWise Domain information is lost, possibly due to a massive hardware failure or environmental issue. DPX can restore the complete system
Recovery Scenario 2: Single Server Lost In a multi-server GroupWise Domain, a single server may fail and need to be rebuilt. DPX can quickly recover the lost server and return it to the Domain.
Recovery Scenario 3: Post Office Lost y When database maintenance tools are not sufficient to overcome Post Office corruption, it becomes necessary to restore the data. DPX provides targeted Post Office recovery that gets users back online quickly.
Recovery Scenario 4: Individual Messages Lost It seems that no matter what tools are available, users still find a way to permanently delete emails! When that happens, DPX can recover messages to a Restore Area, returning lost items to the end user.
Recovery Scenario 5: User Account Lost Just as emails get deleted, sometimes user accounts get lost. DPX will allow you to recover both the user account and the associated GroupWise items.
In addition to these scenarios, DPX also supports backup of Binary Large Objects (blobs) and recovery to the original location or an alternate location.
No matter what kind of disaster happens, Catalogic DPX is your go-to solution for restoring GroupWise services.
