For data centers looking to transition to a new backup software provider or retire legacy backup software, Index Engines can ingest the legacy catalog and manage it more cost effectively going forward. This eliminates the lock that backup software vendors have on clients due to the legacy data that is hidden away in their proprietary format.
Index Engines unlocks this data and makes access and migration easy and cost effective. Index Engines currently supports ingestion and management of catalogs from CommVault, NetWorker, IBM’s Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) and Veritas' NetBackup, with additional formats coming soon. For additional formats including HP DP, Backup Exec and others, Index Engines can rebuild the catalog from a header scan.
