KIRKLAND, Wash., Sept. 4, 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 has teamed with Quest Software, Inc. to support Quest NetVault Backup, the cross platform backup and recovery solution for physical and virtual environments, in order to provide customers in-depth visibility, troubleshooting, capacity planning and SLA management to improve data protection operations.

Quest's NetVault Backup helps simplify data recovery across physical and virtual environments, with a focus on ensuring availability of critical applications and databases such as Oracle, SQL Server, Exchange, SharePoint and Domino. Quest and Bocada share the philosophy that today's IT organizations must shift from an infrastructure-centric view of backup and recovery to a services-centric view, focusing on protecting mission-critical applications and databases, regardless of whether they reside in physical, virtual or cloud environments.  Bocada created the Data Protection Service Management model and their award winning DPSM solutions based on this model, which focuses on managing to SLAs, making the Bocada vpConnect Service Management solution an ideal complement to NetVault.

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 the recently released Bocada Vision solution for virtual environments.

Vision helps ensure VM recoverability by providing in-depth visibility and analysis into VM snapshot and backup activity. Vision shows users what resources are being used to protect VMs and whether they are optimized while detailing the performance impact of protecting VMs. 

In conjunction with the latest 7.10 platform release, Bocada vpConnect now provides in-depth analysis, troubleshooting and SLA management for NetVault Backup, providing a centralized view of all data protection activities across virtual and physical environments. Customers using NetVault for physical backup only can implement Bocada Prism; when they move to protecting virtual servers with their NetVault solution a simple license key change turns on the virtual reporting functionality of vpConnect without any additional changes to the environment.

"We are happy to work with Bocada to leverage their knowledge and experience in data protection service management to provide comprehensive analysis for our NetVault Backup solution that will greatly benefit our customers," said John Maxwell, VP Data Protection Product Management at Quest.  "Quest recognizes that Bocada provides a leading management application with a strong focus on DPSM for virtual and physical environments. After teaming up with Bocada with their Vision solution for vRanger, we are confident our NetVault customers will greatly benefit from the enhanced reporting and analysis that vpConnect provides."
