Bocada Presents 'Ensuring Recovery of Virtual Machines' at Backup Central Live Seminar

Jan 18, 2012, 08:30 ET from Bocada Inc.

KIRKLAND, Wash., Jan. 18, 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, will address the specific needs of data protection management in virtual environments at the Truth in IT seminar, Backup Central Live, at the DoubleTree by Hilton in San Jose, Calif. on January 24th.

Backup Central Live is a free end-user seminar that features independent content from W. Curtis Preston and leading technology vendors addressing the issues of backing up and recovering in today's most challenging data protection environments.  Bocada will present to attendees how they can gain insight into their virtual environments to ensure VM recoverability through in-depth visibility and analysis of VM snapshot and backup activity with the company's groundbreaking Bocada Vision solution.

Leveraging years of customer experiences with their Prism DPSM software, Bocada developed Vision to address the specific needs of data protection management in virtual environments. Vision provides in-depth analysis of the snapshot, replication and backup activity of virtual instances. Unlike other management applications for virtual environments on the market today, Vision is the only solution that puts a lens on the backup activity, providing visibility into data protection results and enables troubleshooting when issues occur. Vision is tightly integrated with vCenter, and therefore provides configuration information on each VM, showing how it is protected and pinpointing the best recovery points for each VM. Vision also provides information on the amount of capacity taken by snapshots on each datastore, and provides capacity reports for each media volume, aiding in capacity planning and potential reclamation. In order to address the key performance issues introduced when backing up VMs, Vision shows the actual performance impact on CPUs and I/O during backup windows.

"Too many enterprises are still suffering through the problems and challenges of backups by not having a clear view and understanding of how their backup infrastructure is working or how it should be working, especially in virtualized environments," said Ralph Wynn, Bocada's Product Marketing Manager.  "We are pleased to have the opportunity to address these issues at Backup Central Live and hopefully shed some light onto the importance of data protection management, as well as helping organizations understand how a solution like Bocada Vision can address the complexities of backup and recovery in virtual environments."

Backup Central Live is one of more than 40 Truth in IT seminars taking place across North America and abroad in 2012.  In addition to its participation in the San Jose event, Bocada will also be presenting at Backup Central Live in San Diego on January 26th and Backup Central Live in Tampa, Florida on February 23rd.  For more information about the events or to register to attend, visit
