Backup Central Live events are free end-user seminars that feature 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 on the markets only reporting and analysis solution that bridges the gap between virtual and physical backup and replication management, helping users address the complexities of managing backup and recovery in virtual and physical environments.

Bocada vpConnect provides the visibility to ensure every VM in your environment is protected, and effectively manage capacity and meet SLAs across virtual and physical environments. Attendees will learn how they can gain insight into their virtual environments to ensure VM recoverability with in-depth visibility and analysis of VM snapshot and backup activity with Bocada Vision, and how upgrading to Bocada vpConnect can provide in-depth analysis, troubleshooting and reporting for the entire data protection infrastructure.

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. Bocada vpConnect adds the capabilities of the award winning Bocada Prism solution to create the markets only physical and virtual data protection service management solution.
