Catalogic Announces Support for IBM Flash Storage

Catalogic Software, a provider of software-defined copy data management, announced support for IBM FlashSystem A9000 and FlashSystem A9000R.

“Data is the new currency.  Not only accessing and analyzing that data in real time with systems like IBM FlashSystem, but also managing all of the copies of your data across your datacenter,” said Kevin Powell, director and business line executive, flash and cloud storage at IBM. “By adding FlashSystem A9000 and FlashSystem A9000R to the existing support for the all-flash IBM FlashSystem V9000, Catalogic is driving the efficiency of our users' systems by enabling the use of Tier 1 AFAs as a complete data center environment, uniformly supporting production, development and test.”

The storage efficiency gains that customers enjoy through better copy management with ECX complement the native storage efficiencies of FlashSystem A9000. The innovative inline deduplication software of FlashSystem A9000 combined with compression software extend the usable capacity of the storage, the vendor said. Because it uses the native snapshot and replication engines of FlashSystem A9000, Catalogic takes advantage of built-in data reduction techniques to optimize storage economics.
