Catalogic Software Wins 2015 Tech Trailblazer Award, Underscoring Record Year for the In-Place Copy Data Management Leader

Catalogic Software, the leading provider of in-place copy data management, today announced that it has won the 2015 Tech Trailblazer award for Data Storage.  This award is the latest in a wide range of industry awards that Catalogic has received in only 10 months of shipping product, underscoring the huge demand for in-place copy data management and establishing Catalogic’s market leadership position.

Catalogic was selected for the top honor by a panel of well-known industry experts from around the globe, and joins an elite group of companies with the win.  The Tech Trailblazer awards are widely recognized for selecting highly innovative companies, and are often seen as a leading indicator for the most successful early stage companies. 2013 winner, PernixData, has been experiencing rapid worldwide growth putting it on track for a 2016 IPO, and 2014 winner Solidfire was recently acquired by NetApp for $870 Million. 

For the 2015 award, Catalogic won based on the significant degree of innovation that the company delivers with its flagship product, ECX, the market’s only software-based copy data management platform designed to leverage a customer’s existing storage environment.  Catalogic ECX delivers essential functionality that allows the IT team to modernize its infrastructure, including automation of storage and data management, self-service capabilities, and complete RESTful API management—all without disruption.  With these capabilities, IT teams can transform their existing infrastructure without disruption, achieving significant improvements to core operations—like data protection and disaster recovery—while enabling new use cases like DevOps and Hybrid cloud.  The Tech Trailblazer judges were impressed that ECX installs in 15 minutes, requires no new hardware, and enables such significant improvements to enterprise IT operations. 

Rose Ross, Founder and Chief Trailblazer commented, “On behalf of the team and esteemed international judging panel, I congratulate Catalogic for winning the Storage Tech Trailblazers Award. We were greatly impressed by the ingenuity and innovation shown in their entry.  Winners of this year’s Tech Trailblazers Awards are some of the most exciting enterprise tech startups making an impact in the business world today. I’m sure we will be hearing more about the successes from these inspiring startups in the future. We wish them the very best of tech trailblazing luck in 2016.”

The award caps off a year in which Catalogic received many industry awards in recognition for the company’s innovation and growth, including CRN’s Tech Innovator Award, Network Products Guide Most Innovative Software product, Best in Biz Most Innovative Company, and NJBiz Business of the Year.  The award also comes just two weeks after Catalogic’s major announcement of new solutions for DevOps and Hybrid Cloud. 

“It’s a great honor to win the Storage Tech Trailblazer award, given the experience of the judges and the strengths of other vendors in our market,” said Ed Walsh, CEO, Catalogic Software. “Today’s award is another indication of the appeal of our differentiated approach to copy data management.  There is strong demand for a non-disruptive data management platform that leverages a customer’s existing infrastructure to enable significant improvements to operations, and allows them to deliver new services for their customers.”

The Tech Trailblazer award arrives just a few days before Catalogic participates in a major industry conference dedicated to innovation. Catalogic will be showcasing ECX at the InterConnect 2016 Conference, next week, February 21-25 in Las Vegas in Booth #162.  On Thursday, February 25th in the Expo Theater, Catalogic CEO Ed Walsh will outline how ECX can transform IBM storage to rapidly enable hybrid cloud and self-service DevOps. This session will detail how to modernize IBM enterprise storage environments without additional hardware.
