KIRKLAND, Wash., Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Bocada Inc., the world's leading provider of data protection management software and the creator of the Data Protection Service Management (DPSM) model, today announced that it is the only vendor supporting both virtual and physical data protection analysis and reporting for Symantec Backup Exec 2012 in order to provide customers in-depth visibility, troubleshooting, capacity planning and SLA management to improve data protection operations.


Symantec Backup Exec 2012 is an integrated product that protects virtual and physical environments, simplifying both backup and disaster recovery. Powered by Symantec V-Ray technology, Backup Exec 2012 restores entire servers, critical Microsoft applications, and VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V virtual environments to dramatically minimize business downtime. Bocada's vpConnect Data Protection Service Management solution is an ideal complement, providing users the visibility into all backup activity across virtual and physical servers, automating administrative tasks and helping users better manage resources in the data protection environment.

Bocada vpConnect is the industry's first fully integrated data protection service management solution for managing physical and virtual environments, bridging the gap between physical and virtual data protection operations.  Bocada has integrated its agentless, award winning Bocada Prism solution, which provides in-depth backup and recovery health and capacity reporting, policy analysis and SLA management for physical environments, with its Bocada Vision solution for virtual environments.

Bocada Vision is a ground breaking solution focused on managing the complexities of backup and recovery in Virtual Environments. Bocada Vision correlates backup and snapshot activity with VMware vCenter configuration data to help ensure VMs are protected and recoverable, ensure effective capacity use and lower administrative costs.

"Symantec Backup Exec customers have utilized Bocada solutions for managing their data protection environments for quite some time. Over one third of our installed base are Backup Exec customers, so we are pleased to offer this new functionality to the market," said Mike Ascher, Director of Global Sales for Bocada. "As customers adopt the features in Backup Exec 2012 for protecting virtual servers, Bocada vpConnect will help them more effectively manage their environments and lower costs."

Bocada vpConnect now provides in-depth analysis, troubleshooting and SLA management for Backup Exec 2012, providing a centralized view of all data protection activities across virtual and physical environments. Customers using Backup Exec 2012 for physical backup only can implement Bocada Prism; when they move to protecting virtual servers with their Backup Exec 2012 solution a simple license key change turns on the virtual reporting functionality of vpConnect without any additional changes to the environment.
