Bocada Inc., a firm specializing in data protection management software and the creator of the Data Protection Service Management (DPSM) model, has released Prism Lite, a data protection reporting and troubleshooting solution that determines the overall health of data protection environments at organizations with fewer than 500 data protection clients in-house.

Targeted at smaller organizations (small and midsize businesses -- SMBs) or individual departments in large enterprise organizations that need to better manage their data protection environment, Prism Lite troubleshoots problem areas and trend use over time for auditing, capacity planning, and policy management purposes. Prism Lite is functionally equivalent to traditional heterogeneous backup reporting solutions at a fraction of the cost.

The full version of Bocada Prism is sold on a per unit basis at a list price of $150 a unit while Prism Lite is sold by license tier: Tier 1 is up to 100 clients under management; Tier 2 is for up to 250 managed clients; and Tier 3 is for up to 500 clients managed. The resulting price points are significantly lower than equivalent unit counts for the full Prism product – a savings of as much as 60 percent.

Customers interested in additional DPSM functionality, including advanced problem management, SLA Compliance Management and Analysis, Policy Management and Change Analysis, and a built-in workflow at a later date can upgrade from Prism Lite to the full version of Bocada Prism. The database from Prism Lite is fully transferable to Bocada Prism making the upgrade path painless and helping ensure organizations can continue to meet business goals and improve operational efficiencies without delay.
