Company divests its copy data management business to IBM in order to increase its focus on cloud data protection and management.


Woodcliff Lake, NJ – May 24, 2021Catalogic Software, a leading provider of smart data protection solutions, today announced that it has sold its Catalogic ECX™ copy data management business to IBM. Details of the transaction were not disclosed.  Divesting this business enables Catalogic to focus on its enterprise and cloud data protection and data security solutions, including its recently launched Kubernetes and cloud native data protection service, CloudCasa.

Catalogic pioneered an in-place copy data management solution leveraging storage array snapshot and replication capabilities to modernize IT process such as automated DevTest, data protection with instant recovery, disaster recovery and offload to cloud storage. The “in-place” snapshot based approach made ECX an ideal solution for partnering with enterprise storage vendors such as IBM. Catalogic will continue to partner with IBM to support its existing ECX customer base.

“IBM Storage has been an important business partner for Catalogic,” said Ken Barth, chief executive officer for Catalogic Software. “We built a great team with a strong focus on supporting IBM Storage and we wish that team continued success. I am excited about the future of Catalogic with a stronger focus on building our SaaS platform for protecting hybrid and cloud native environments.”

Last November, Catalogic launched CloudCasa, a simple, scalable, cloud-native data protection and disaster recovery service for cloud native applications. CloudCasa supports all leading Kubernetes distributions and managed services and cloud database services, and it is available in leading cloud marketplaces including SUSE Rancher and DigitalOcean. With CloudCasa, your IT department doesn’t need to be Kubernetes experts and your DevOps team doesn’t need to be storage or data protection experts in order to protect your Kubernetes clusters and cloud applications.
