KIRKLAND, Wash., Dec. 7, 2010 /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 Prism Lite, a data protection reporting and troubleshooting solution that provides the ability to determine the overall health of data protection environments at organizations with less than 500 data protection clients in house.
Targeted at smaller organizations (SMBs) or individual departments in large enterprise organizations that need to better manage their data protection environment, Prism Lite provides the ability to determine the health of the overall data protection environment, troubleshoot 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.
"While organizations of any size need to be sure that their backup environment is operating at 100 percent and is able to fully protect their business-critical information, smaller organizations often do not have access to the equivalent resources that larger organizations do and often find themselves operating without a safety net," said Nancy Hurley, CEO of Bocada. "For organizations that may feel they don't presently need the advanced features of Bocada Prism to navigate through the full DPSM process but are concerned with maintaining the overall health of their data protection environments, we have designed Prism Lite as an opportune way to bring sophisticated reporting in house for a very affordable price."
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 who are 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.
Prism Lite is currently available through Bocada's channel of Value Added Resellers and Managed Service Provider partners or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
