DPX is Catalogic’s backup and recovery software platform for enterprise physical and virtual workloads. It is complemented by CloudCasa, Catalogic’s “as-a-service” offering for protecting Kubernetes and cloud-native workloads that is covered separately in Evaluator Group’s Backup-as-a-Service Evaluator Series Research segment.

DPX creates block-level, incremental, snapshot-based, read-only backups. Catalogic’s Instant Virtualization technology allows these snapshots to be directly mounted to compute nodes, making the backup data quickly accessible for recoveries and for adjacent use cases including analytics, dev/test and reporting.

DPX can recover bare metal as well as virtualized systems. It supports granular recovery, for example, of individual files, Exchange and SharePoint items, and SQL database tables. Additionally, it supports replication – including of encrypted volumes – to a secondary system. Replication bandwidth is throttled to optimize performance, and specific volumes can be prioritized for replication.

DPX vPlus (formerly branded as vProtect) is Catalogic’s backup software for open VM environments (e.g., Nutanix AHV, Citrix Xen, Red Hat OpenStack, KVM), Microsoft 365, Amazon EC2, Google Compute Engine, and Microsoft Azure VMs. DPX vPlus uses a node that serves as a data mover to transport agentless snapshots in their required format to any DPX-supportrf repository. vPlus also allows clones in the form of writeable snapshots to be created and accessed through DPX Instant Access.
