Robust Backup and Recovery
GuardMode Ransomware Protection
But backup can also be more than an insurance policy. With instantly accessible backup images, you can leverage backup data sets for many other tasks, such as dev-test, DevOps, reporting and compliance, and analytics.
DPX delivers across a range of enterprise backup and recovery use cases, including all your old favorites!
Secure Data Protection
Getting backups done on time and reliably are leading data protection challenges. With Catalogic’s patented block-level backup technology, you’ll reduce backup times by 90% and almost never have to troubleshoot a backup failure. Finally, you can have peace of mind that your data is reliably protected and will be there when you need it. And the vStor backup repository allows you to build backup targets to your own specifications, to meet your performance and capacity requirements.
Rapid Granular Restore and Disaster Recovery
Rapid Recovery and DR
Nobody likes waiting for a recovery when business operations are down. With DPX, you can restore systems in the time it takes to boot them using our patented Instant Virtualization technology. Snapshots can be mapped to stand in for lost volumes with only two mouse clicks. For targeted recoveries, you can rapidly recover files, Exchange and SharePoint items, SQL database tables and more, without needing to restore an entire database or volume. Catalogic recovery works locally or remotely to support Disaster Recovery scenarios. Data replication allows you to efficiently move data off-site.
Proactive Ransomware Protection
Ransomware infestations are growing at a record pace and unfortunately, many of these viruses slip past anti-virus systems. What if your backup software could also monitor your data and detect suspicious behavior and alert you to it? That is what DPX GuardMode does – an an additional layer of ransomware detection for backup teams that proactively monitoring for suspicious activity and encrypted files.
Then when ransomware strikes, DPX provides a list of affected files to restore and multiple recovery points so you can spin the clock back to just before the infection happened. Backups are immutable snapshots that can be stored as offline, air-gapped copies on tape and cloud object storage. Archived data cannot be modified or deleted, protecting backups against early deletion and providing an extra layer of off-line protection.
Speed of recovery is crucial for getting your organization back to operational status. And DPX can help with the ultimate form of protection from electronic attack: having air-gap security in the form of cloud object storage or backup tapes. DPX block-level backups are also stored as immutable snapshots. That means that unlike backups stored as files, block backups cannot be manipulated by ransomware. With DPX, your backup data is secure.
Organizations are increasingly moving to the Cloud for long term backup storage. Catalogic DPX makes it easy for you to send backup images into the Cloud and to find them easily when you need them. Backups can be sent directly into the Amazon Cloud or Microsoft Azure. Or, by using a NetApp® AltaVault® cloud-integrated storage appliance, numerous public and private clouds are accessible.
Tape or Tape Replacement
Tape is the IT technology that is always going but never gone. Many organizations still rely heavily on tape, which is why DPX includes full-fledged support for multiple tape drives and formats. This isn’t bolted-on bare-bones tape: it’s true, enterprise-class tape management. But if you’re ready to leave tape behind, DPX also offers true disk-to-disk and disk-to-cloud protection that can have you saying goodbye to tape for good.
Remote Office Backup
Remote Office Backup
Protecting remote offices has always been a challenge. Legacy backup tools are often too complex. Simplicity matters when on location IT staff may be limited. Bandwidth concerns are also significant. Catalogic DPX shines in both regards. The vStor data repository can be as simple as a single virtual machine, making it the perfect solution for smaller offices. The local vStor provides rapid on-site recovery, while data replication sends copies back to the data center for true DR and data centralization.
Microsoft 365 Backup
SaaS platforms like Microsoft 365 do not have built in data protection. Your data is always your responsibility, and that’s where the big disconnect arises. DPX vPlus for Microsoft 365 is a powerful data protection solution for Microsoft 365 and its components – Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, and Microsoft Teams.
NDMP and OSSV
NDMP Backup and OSSV Replacement
Catalogic helped pioneer NDMP backups and remains a leader in supporting NDMP for multiple vendor NAS systems, including NetApp NDMP and Isilon NDMP backups. Catalogic supports NDMP backups to disk, tape and cloud. You can deploy DPX as an extremely cost-effective standalone NDMP backup or NetApp OSSV replacement solution that can save you as much as 80% on your legacy backup software costs.
Customers have relied on NetApp OSSV backup agents for their data protection needs for years. But OSSV agents don’t support Clustered Data ONTAP targets, and they don’t work on the current versions of Windows or Linux. For NetApp OSSV users, DPX offers a seamless, low-risk replacement for OSSV when moving to Clustered Data ONTAP.
Micro Focus OES Backup
Micro Focus Data Protection
Catalogic has provided industry leading protection and recovery for Novell products since 1997, pioneering many protection features such as Open Enterprise Server (OES) cluster support and deep GroupWise integration. Unlike many other vendors, we’ve never backed off on our commitment to the Novell family of products, even as they have shifted to Micro Focus.
The vStor Software-Defined Backup Repository
The vStor backup repository is a flexible and scalable software-defined backup target that frees you from expensive backup appliances and vendor lock-in. Built on open source components, vStor can use any block storage without restrictions. It supports both deduplication and compression for efficiency and provides point-to-point replication for DR or remote office support. With vStor, you can build different backup targets to meet your performance needs. For example, a single VM to support a small office, or a high-performance vStor built on all-flash storage for your most critical workloads. There are no additional licensing costs for vStor repositories. vStor can be deployed quickly as a virtual appliance or installed on a physical server to meet performance needs. For more details on vStor, contact us.
Multi-purpose Backup Images
Catalogic DPX stores backups as usable snapshots. Data can be accessed for recovery purposes, but it can also serve to provide needed data for other use cases, such as reporting, dev-test, analytics and so on. Snapshot backup images can be mapped to compute nodes with only a few mouse clicks, giving you fast and easy data delivery.
Simple Object Recovery
DPX provides rapid, easy recovery of application data objects. This includes Microsoft Exchange (emails, contacts, tasks, etc.), Microsoft SharePoint (documents, lists, sites, etc.) and Microsoft SQL (individual table items). Easy drag-and-drop recovery uses mapped backup images that take only moments to access, dramatically reducing recovery time.
Unique NetApp Integration
For NetApp users, DPX offers unique integration with NetApp ONTAP. DPX sends data blocks directly to NetApp storage, eliminating the need for media or device servers. This increases efficiency and reduces network complexity.
The DPX reporting tool, powered by Microsoft BI, provides a variety of reports for the DPX enterprise, including important information about backup types, DPX nodes, storage, status, job details, backup data growth and much more. Reporting is included at no additional cost. For more information on reporting,see our Power BI data sheet

Since backup and restore performance is greatly dependent on disk and network I/O, choice of storage subsystems, network infrastructure components, as well as applicable configuration parameters for each will determine actual performance within specific IT environments.
