The Catalogic solution will now compete with other solutions in the UK from the likes of EMC
US-based Catalogic Software says Tectrade has joined the Catalogic partner programme to bring its ECX copy data management (CDM) platform to customers in the UK.
Tectrade is an MSP providing data protection, storage solutions, big data and cloud managed services. Copy data management is a technology that helps reduce storage consumption through eliminating the unnecessary duplication of production data.
Catalogic’s ECX platform delivers “in-place” copy data management, allowing the IT team to make optimal use of its existing infrastructure and data in a manner that is “efficient, automated, scalable and easy to use”, said the supplier.
Catalogic enables IT to deliver the data access required for its internal and external customers to meet mission critical operations including data protection, disaster recovery, test and development and other areas. With automation, orchestration and self-service functionality, ECX allows the IT team to modernise their operations using existing storage and virtualisation infrastructure without disruption.
The Catalogic solution is said to be a natural fit for Tectrade. With over 25 years of experience in data management, Tectrade delivers enterprise-class solutions and is an IBM Premier Business Partner.
“As we speak with clients, we see the increased importance in the role of data management in support of their most important IT functions,” said Alex Fagioli, CEO of Tectrade.
“As we analysed solutions, we recognized that Catalogic is the ideal platform to augment how we assist existing and prospective clients who are looking to improve operations without significant disruption or taking on extensive new capital costs.”
Ed Walsh, CEO of Catalogic Software, said: “They are an ideal business partner to bring our copy data management to the UK market, as their deep experience in storage and data management gives them a solid understanding of both the client challenges, and the requirements for a comprehensive solution.”
