Providing Proactive Backup & Data Protection Monitoring

Kirkland, WA – Bocada LLC, an award-winning backup monitoring and reporting solution, now includes automated storage usage alerting. Organizations porting storage capacity data into Bocada will now have an automated way to stay ahead of storage usage issues that lead to large-scale backup failure events or unanticipated investments in incremental storage devices.

Through Bocada’s native storage application integration or backup server data collection, automated, details on total storage capacity and real-time storage usage are automatically collected. When user-defined storage usage percentage thresholds are met, users will receive an automated alert. Additionally, users can trigger automated ticket creation with alert details to hasten the speed with which capacity issues get addressed. This streamlined, automated flow affords users the opportunity to review storage usage and develop revised backup policies or storage retention protocols to mitigate hitting storage limits.

Matt Hall, Bocada’s Global Head of Sales, notes that this latest capability reflects Bocada’s goal to provide comprehensive coverage of all activities within the backup operations ecosystem. “Monitoring backup storage usage to avoid hitting capacity limits should be part of everyday backup operations workflows. However, it often gets forgotten in the midst of other day-to-day tasks. With automated storage usage alerting, administrators can proactively get ahead of usage issues before they cause major disruptions.”

Automated backup usage alerting will be available to customers using Bocada 22.2.05. To learn more about Bocada’s newest capabilities, email us at or call +1-425-898-2400.
