Kirkland, Wash. – December 20, 2011 –/– 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 is offering a hands-on test drive of its new Bocada Vision software to allow potential customers the opportunity to experience for themselves how they can better manage the data protection operations of virtual environments from a single pane of glass.

The demonstration in a live environment allows customers the opportunity to use and interact with the groundbreaking Bocada Vision software technology to get a deeper understanding of the benefits of monitoring backup and recovery operations within virtualized environments. Test users will be able to monitor backup methods, performance, success and failures, problem and resource management, virtual environment recovery, configurations and storage utilization reports and errors to see how Vision helps minimize the complexity that virtualization adds to backup and recovery operations.

“Our customers have previously enjoyed the opportunity to test drive our Bocada Prism to fully understand all of its features and benefits without the need to first establish their own test environments, so it was natural to extend the same opportunity to those looking to gain insight into the data protection operations of virtual environments,” said Ralph Wynn, Product Marketing Manager of Bocada. “This hands on demonstration allows customers to personally experience Bocada Vision to see how they can quickly and easily assess the recoverability of VMs, gain immediate visibility into VM data protection results, track VM backup and snapshot capacity analysis and view the performance impact of backups.”

When customers typically do evaluations, they only have a small test environment or a few test servers available to them, so they may not be able to test all features of the products they are evaluating. In addition, small test environments may shield the customer from potential scale or administrative issues that may become evident in a production environment. The Bocada Vision Test Drive is run on a full-scale database with input from a wide array of backup applications, which will give the customer a true taste of functionality in a production environment.

Bocada Vision is available as a standalone module within Bocada Prism, a service management application that was purpose built to help organizations move through the DPSM model, a multi-phase set of best practices to ensure cost-effective delivery of data protection services to customers. Bocada leveraged years of customer experiences to create a workflow-driven, intelligent analysis solution with built in SLA impact analysis, change tracking, trend analysis and a searchable knowledge base to ensure organizations can meet business goals and improve operational efficiencies. When used over an extended period of time, Prism provides a historical overview of the backup environment to see if it is operating the way it should be. This information is vital in addressing whether changes need to be made, the architecture needs updating, and what data is readily available, as well as to forecast future growth.

Bocada Vision Test Drive users are asked to register online and be approved for access to the demonstration environment.
