KIRKLAND, Wash., Sept. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on popular demand, Bocada Inc., the world's leading provider of data protection management software and the creator of the Data Protection Service Management (DPSM) model, will repeat a free and informative webinar that will benefit any Symantec NetBackup user that implements policies of any type including Vaulting or Storage Life Cycle Policies and has had difficulty tracking and understanding data growth.


NetBackup has multiple options to create duplicate copies to different storage and media targets including Vault Option, Multiple Copies in the schedule, Staging Area in the storage unit, and more recently Storage Lifecycle Policies. In this webinar Bocada will demonstrate how Bocada Prism SLP reports provide a centralized view of all of these policies, including the ability to identify storage lifecycle initiated backup jobs and their destination media to quickly verify that backup copies were successfully made whether it went to tape or to disk. Webinar attendees will learn how the ability to connect duplication and backup jobs, whose relationship to each other was previously invisible and unknown, can significantly improve operations and help improve resource use.  


A one-hour webcast reviewing the details of how NetBackup users can gain never-before insight and detail into the interworking of their environment. Attendees will learn how to :

  • View how much data is actually being protected globally or by specified sites
  • Expose details of where in the policies lifecycle there may be failures
  • Understand how current retention levels are consuming available storage
  • Easily see server to policy views and a rollup of the success and failures of all lifecycle policies
  • Isolate policies that misconfigured as well as those backing up duplicate data.
