Syncsort Backup Express also known as BEX at that time is now DPX at Catalogic. In addition to DPX, the company started an effort to promote and boost its ECX solution, a product dedicated to manage and orchestrate Copy Data and solve associated nightmare. To immediately get the issue, IDC mentions that 60% of the storage space is covered by data copies so it becomes obvious that this ratio must be improved but maintains at least the same level of protection. ECX is a product to manage and catalog data protection services and images. It provides a service for physical and virtual environment, it has to be considered as a Data Management Platform able to leverage various data copy services from storage devices or backup software to reduce significantly CapEx and OpEx.
