Bocada Vision addresses issues of VM recoverability by providing insight into whether backups are successful and where recovery points are, among other data points.
maker Bocada on Nov.2 added a new product for those struggling in the virtual
IT world with the introduction of a VM monitoring software package.
Bocada Vision provides
insight into the data-protection operations of virtual environments. Users can
monitor backup methods, performance, success and failures, problem and resource
management, virtual environment recovery, configuration and storage utilization
reports and errors to help minimize the complexity that virtualization brings to
backup and recovery operations.
Complexity in management and
deployment is the No. 1 problem that slows the installation of new virtualized
systems, analytics firms that include Enterprise Strategy Group, Forrester Research,
and IDC have reported.
Bocada Vision addresses
issues of VM recoverability by providing insight into whether backups are
successful and where recovery points are, the company said. It tells users
what resources are being used to protect VMs and whether they are optimized
while detailing the performance impact of protecting VMs.
Bocada, which created the Data Protection Service Management (DPSM) model, is
known for its Prism
product, a storage software package aimed to help users get through the
complicated, multiphase DPSM process.
Prism is designed expressly
for backup service providers, MSPs and software-as-a-service (SaaS) vendors, as
well as user organizations focused on delivering reliable data-protection
services to internal or external customers.
Can Be Integrated with Prism
Even though it is designed
as a standalone product, Bocada Vision can also be fully integrated with Bocada
Prism to provide total physical and virtual protection of a user's entire
backup infrastructure, the company said.
will be generally available in
the next few weeks with pricing established by VM instance. Go here to register for a webinar
