EMC sets new standard for data protection
Dubai, December 19, 2009
EMC Corporation, a leader in information infrastructure solutions, has set new standards for data protection management analysis and reporting with the launch of a new version of EMC Data Protection Advisor.
Announcing a new replication support in its EMC Data Protection Advisor software, the company said the users can now centrally monitor all major backup applications along with industry-leading replication technologies in both physical and virtual environments.
With this new expansion, customers have a single, unified solution that monitors, analyzes, and reports across backup, replication, and NAS infrastructure, leading to improved compliance and reduced risk for data exposure while increasing operational efficiency and lowering costs, EMC said in a statement.
The EMC Data Protection Advisor automates the collection of data from applications, hosts and arrays and constantly monitors for exposures and alerts on gaps that could lead to missed service level agreements (SLAs) and data protection objectives, the statement said.
Rich Napolitano, senior vice president and general manager of the EMC Unified Storage Division, said, 'EMC’s advancement in unifying backup and replication analysis in its EMC Data Protection Advisor solution continues to demonstrate our leadership position in data protection management.'
'Unlike other solutions and approaches that only provide a glimpse of ensuring disaster recovery processes work as designed, Data Protection Advisor provides customers with the most complete data protection management solution available in the market today,' he observed.
Originally focused on backup environments, the latest version of EMC’s data protection management solution expands its monitoring, analysis and reporting capabilities to include replication software, providing a single pane for unified data protection management across backup and replication.
Mark Butts, Storage and Data Protection Tower lead for Nielsen Company, said, 'As a current user of EMC Data Protection Advisor, the solution has allowed our IT department to gain the visibility of our backup infrastructure and fix issues before they become large problems or failures.'
'With Data Protection Advisor, we now have a 97 per cent success rate of our backups, which was considerably lower prior to us deploying the solution,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
