EMC announced their new Data Protection Advisor management software that automatically monitors, analyzes, provides alerts and reports on all aspects of the protection status of an IT infrastructure and is ideal for a private cloud where IT is delivered as a service.
Version 5.7 provides deeper visibility into EMC and third party deduplication software, backup applications, virtual tape libraries and applications, including Microsoft Exchange 2010.
Data Protection Advisor simplifies and automates time-consuming, manual tasks. It collects and analyzes information from various heterogeneous backup, replication, file server, database and virtualization technologies into a single customizable interface for faster problem resolution and more efficient audit, compliance, reporting and planning.
New capabilities enable scanning and reporting without the need for agents to be installed on production hosts.
A key feature of Data Protection Advisor is automated replication monitoring, which can quickly spot issues and trigger alerts.
