Bocada has updated its flagship product, Bocada Enterprise 5.4 with features that provide greater visibility into backup policy configuration, enabling customers to more effectively deliver data protection services.

Customers can lower administrative costs and drive backup success with the new advanced Policy and Client Configuration reporting in Bocada Enterprise 5.4. Automated, in-depth policy reporting for multiple backup applications has never been available, requiring users to manually gather policy information required to streamline operations and guarantee compliance. This Bocada release now eliminates that requirement, and when used in conjunction with other key Bocada Enterprise reports such as Occupancy Trending, the ability to easily review and subsequently modify policies can result in reduced total cost of ownership.

Regular policy review is one of the key best practice processes recommended in the Bocada Data Protection Service Management model. With Bocada Enterprise 5.4, users can quickly view the various policies that have been created on all of their servers and review client policy configurations. Consistent policy review helps improve data protection results with the following benefits:

  • Improved recoverability
  • Successful delivery of SLAs
  • Reduction of excess capacity use
  • Improved customer communication
  • Effectively meet compliance requirements

“Policy mining is a critical piece of the data protection service management process,” said Ryan Finnamore, product manager at Bocada. “Customers need to ensure that their policies are effectively supporting the business goals of the company as it relates to recoverability, compliance, SLA adherence, and capacity management. Bocada Enterprise 5.4 provides the visibility required for customers to quickly and easily review policies and determine if changes need to be made to meet those goals.”

Bocada Enterprise 5.4 provides policy and configuration support for both IBM TSM and Symantec NetBackup and is available for download. More information is available at www.bocada.com.
