Bocada vpConnect: For mixed physical and virtual environments where data protection applications are integrated with VMware APIs (this is the most common implementation).
Bocada vpConnect: The Essential Management Solution for Enterprise Data Protection
Bocada vpConnect is a fully integrated data protection service management solution for managing physical and virtual environments. Bocada has combined its award winning solutions, Bocada Prism and Bocada Vision, to provide in-depth backup health and capacity reporting, policy analysis and SLA management for physical and virtual environments.
Consolidates virtual and physical reporting in single console
Correlates vCenter activity with backup activity to enable:
Quick and easy determination if VMs are adequately protected
In-depth VM backup and snapshot capacity use analysis
Performance impact analysis of backup activity on VMs and hosts
Bocada vpConnect combines physical and virtual data protection management under a single seamless interface allowing users to find possible trouble spots in their current data protection approach by utilizing historical trending and analysis. Those customers deploying virtual machines will have a solution in place to track the usage of snapshots, the amount of space they consume, and where space can be reclaimed. To achieve the same level of snapshot reporting and analysis without vpConnect a user would have to log into multiple vCenter servers and examine each VMs to get a list of available snapshots. This is just one way that Bocada vpConnect can lower cost through centralized management.
Virtualization has become a technology that can be found in any size organization. Bocada vpConnect can monitor any organizations backup activities wherever they occur and spot orphaned clients. So if you are virtualizing all of your physical servers all at once or converting them in phases, vpConnet can make sure no asset goes unprotected. If you are not responsible for the virtual environment, no problem, vpConnect checks for the presence of new VMs and can report if any newly created VMs are properly protected. If VMs are being protected but not using the intended application, vpConnect will help you spot the oversight so that you can quickly protect that asset.
Bocada vpConnect provides in-depth analysis regarding capacity use, showing how much capacity is being used by snaps in each datastore, down to the file level. In addition, users can also track the capacity used by media volume for backups and will show if datastores or media volumes are reaching their full capacity.
When working with other organizations or even management teams, presenting information in a concise easy to ready manner is important. With Bocada vpConnect users can utilize new Executive Summary reporting to communicate key metrics of the backup environment. Providing such detail as the number of servers and clients being protected with total data backed up can provide the detailed justification needed to secure additional budget to handle data growth.

NetApp delivers a storage platform which has the ability to provide flexible data storage at scale for physical and virtual environments. With NetApp add-on licenses for SnapVault and SnapMirror, you have the ability to safeguard your data, applications and NetApp devices themselves.
The vRanger plugin allows Vision to monitor all backup, restore, and replication activity across all vRanger servers. In addition to backup information, the vRanger plugin can also report on all backup destinations used and how much space each backup job occupies.
The Veeam plugin allows Vision to monitor all backup, restore, and replication activity across all Veeam servers. In addition to backup information, the Veeam plugin can also report on all backup destinations used and how much space each backup job occupies.
The VMware Data Recovery plugin allows Vision to monitor all backup and restore activity across all Data Recovery appliances. In addition to backup information, the VMware Data Recovery plugin can also monitor and report on all backup destinations used and how much space each backup job occupies.
Vision provides agentless integration with vCenter by capturing the infrastructure configuration and automatically creating the VM membership. The vCenter plugin allows vision to see all the virtual machines located on each host as well as which datastore they belong to. The plugin can also recognize snapshots issued by vCenter as job tasks as well as how much space those snapshots occupy.
Bocada legacy solutions do not support all applications, please contact Bocada support for more information. Bocada generally supports the current and past three version/releases of backup software. To find out if we support your backup software,please contact email@example.com.
