Bocada on Tuesday announced Prism Lite, a less expensive version of its Bocada Prism data protection reporting and troubleshooting tool that lets companies determine the overall health of their data protection environments.

According to Bocada, the Prism tool can help improve a company's backup "health" by pinpointing and diagnosing trouble spots, evaluate current policies to see if they support business goals such as being able to meet Recovery Point Objectives and Recovery Time Objectives and deliver on SLAs.

Additionally, according to the company, using DPSM can reduce capital costs for backup, and reduce the risk or cost of backup-related downtime. Bocada provides data protection management software, based on its Data Protection Service Management (DPSM) process, a workflow analysis that the company developed.

"Data protection activities can include everything from traditional backups to replication, backup deduplication in-application backup 'dumps' and storage system snapshots, all data backups intended for the purpose of recovery," according to Nancy Hurley, CEO of Bocada. "These days, companies have to not only do backups, but be able to confirm and prove they were done, including for compliance."

George Crump, analyst at Storage Switzerland, has stated, "...data protection for many organizations is a patchwork of unrelated tasks all trying to protect different parts of the data center with little communication between each other, and little relationship to the service level commitments of the organization... This multitude of overlapping data protection efforts often leads to redundant purchases of data protection hardware and software and additional processes for the administrators to monitor."
