Catalyst from Index Engines unlocks content in IBM and Symantec backup formats (with Commvault support coming in 1H2015) allowing access and management of the data without the need for the original software.
Clients that currently use IBM’s TSM or Symantec’s NBU now have a cost effective and intelligent migration strategy to best of breed backup platforms. If a non-production TSM/NBU instance, resulting from a merger or acquisition is maintained in order to provide access to legacy tape data, these environments can be retired and replaced with a single solution that provides simplified access to the data going forward.
Additionally, clients who have large volumes of legacy backup tapes in offsite storage vaults (Iron Mountain, Recall, etc.), containing data required to support legal and compliance, can now intelligently restore this data and extract the records that are relevant to disk for simplified access and management. This is typically a small portion of what is contained on tape, which differentiates Catalyst from a migration tool where all data is moved from tape.
