Woodcliff Lake, NJ — Jan 27, 2016 —

IBM® and Catalogic Software today announced that they will hold a live online event next week to introduce a new series of tested and validated joint solutions for both Hybrid Cloud operations and for DevOps, in addition to other important IT use cases.  The event will be carried via live online stream on Tuesday, February 2nd at 11 AM Eastern.

The event will be co-hosted by IBM VP of Storage, Bina Hallman, and Catalogic Software CEO, Ed Walsh. The session will demonstrate how Catalogic’s data management software platform leverages IBM storage to deliver key functionality like self-service provisioning and automation–fundamental attributes of a modern, dynamic infrastructure. This powerful combination allows IT to easily deploy resources and move data in support of operations in the Cloud or in support of DevOps processes.

The companies are not releasing significant details ahead of the formal announcement, but have revealed that each of the solutions being introduced combines Catalogic’s ECX software based copy data management platform with one of IBM’s primary storage offerings including the Storwize® family of storage arrays, SAN Volume Controller with IBM Spectrum Virtualize™ software, the IBM FlashSystem™ V9000 storage array, and storage software offering IBM Spectrum Protect™.

Next week’s event will include live demonstrations that showcase how IBM storage can be leveraged as the infrastructure in key use cases.  To exemplify the Hybrid Cloud capabilities, one demonstration will show how IBM storage clients can easily extend operations to the public cloud, using ECX’s automation and data management capabilities to orchestrate the process of creating live application environments in IBM’s Public Cloud division, SoftLayer, as well as in Amazon Web Services.  A second live demonstration will show how leveraging ECX’s data management allows the IT organization to use IBM storage as the primary infrastructure in a DevOps environment.

“Together with IBM, we are bringing powerful solutions to market that directly address some of the most pressing challenges that enterprise IT teams have today,” said Walsh.  “We knew that a live presentation with detailed demonstrations was the best way to convey the value that these solutions can bring to our clients, and we are thrilled to be joined by Bina Hallman in our live broadcast next week.”
