"Right now, most organizations need to have the visibility to know that backups have been completed and that data is recoverable, but also see how you're using resources," said Hurley. "If you're over-protecting, you're spending too much, for example, and to make sure that your policies align with your priorities, like making sure that critical data is backed up frequently, and that you are using your storage capacity effectively. Solutions like this also help reduce the administrative tasks, by automating tasks otherwise done manually or requiring admins to write scripts. For SMBs, where a single person may be managing all the backup, the more you can automate in data capture and reporting, the more time they can save."

According to Bocada, "Prism Lite provides the ability to determine the health of the overall data protection environment, troubleshoot problem areas and trend use over time for auditing, capacity planning and policy management purposes."

Prism Lite is intended for companies, or departments within companies, whose data protection environments consist of 500 or fewer managed clients -- server applications that require being backed up, like instances of Microsoft Exchange or SQL.

Bocada claims that "Prism Lite is functionally equivalent to traditional heterogeneous backup reporting solutions like ApTare or Symantec Operation Center (formerly known as Veritas Backup Reporter, VBR), but those cost about what our full enterprise service management version of Prism costs."

The full version of Prism, intended for enterprises looking for service management for data protection, also includes advanced problem management, SLA Compliance Management and Analysis, impact analysis, built-in workflow, and Policy Management and Change Analysis.

Bocada sells Prism via channels; MSRP for Prism Lite is roughly $10,000 for Tier 1 (up to 100 managed clients), $20,000 for Tier 2 (up to 250 clients), $30,000 for Tier 3 (up to 500 managed clients). The full enterprise version of Bocada Prism is sold on a per unit basis at a list price of $150 a unit.
