A global provider of smart data protection solutions, Catalogic Software announced a collaboration with BackBlaze which is a prominent storage cloud platform. DPX, Catalogic’s enterprise data protection software, offers robust backup and recovery capabilities and syncs with Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage to provide a stable and efficient backup target. Backblaze B2 is now supported as a minimal and protected backup storage destination by CloudCasa’s Catalogic which is a Kubernetes monitoring service, cloud database, and cloud-based applications.

Sathya Sankaran, COO, Catalogic Software said, “Our new partnership with Backblaze ensures the most common backup and restore challenges such as ransomware protection, exceeding backup windows and expensive tape maintenance costs are a thing of the past. The Backblaze B2 Cloud platform provides a cost-effective, long-term storage solution allowing data to remain under an organization’s control for compliance or data governance reasons while also considering the ubiquity of ransomware and the importance of protecting against an attack.”

This new collaboration will enable organizations managing backups of their enterprise environments and cloud-native applications to use the Backblaze B2 platform for the following tasks:

  • Air-gapped backups provide ransomware protection.
  • Backups that are immutable thanks to S3 Object Lock
  • For the 3-2-1 backup copy rule, use hybrid backup and cloud archiving.
  • A single cloud storage platform provides protection for both physical and virtual environments.
  • Backup storage that is low-cost, secure, and scalable in comparison to tape and other storage options

Nilay Patel, VP of Sales and Partnerships at Backblaze said, “Backblaze and Catalogic together offer a powerful solution to provide cost-effective protection against ransomware and data loss. Instead of having to wait days to recover data from the cloud, Backblaze guarantees speed premiums with a 99.9% uptime SLA and no cold delays. We deliver high performance, S3 compatible, and plug-n-play cloud object storage at a 75% lower cost than our competitors.”
