Reviewer Logan Harbaugh put Bocada Vision through its paces to test VM backup and restore success, performance, capacity use, reporting, and other functions.

"With broad backup application support and excellent integration with vCenter and leading virtual backup solutions, Vision provides as much information on backups, restores, replication and snapshots as any administrator might want," said Harbaugh. "Vision gives administrators the tools to effectively analyze all VM data protection activity in their environment, which will significantly reduce administrative efforts and improve operations." The review praised the product's advanced management tools including health checks, policy management, SLA management, problem management, auditing, change management and capacity planning.

"We thank Mr. Harbaugh and Virtualization Review magazine for their help in demonstrating how Bocada Vision can help overcome the challenges of backup in VMware environments and reduce costs, improve satisfaction and achieve operational excellence," said Nancy Hurley Bocada CEO. "This thorough review provides administrators with much food for thought in how to manage their VM backups, assure  recoverability and reduce costs."
