BakBone Software, a leading provider of heterogeneous integrated data protection solutions, now offers NetVault: Report Manager Pro, an update to BakBone's NetVault: Report Manager solution.
The new version provides detailed backup log reports and advanced search capabilities, along with extensive monitoring and reporting for backup, disk space and Exchange. These capabilities are easy to use and can help keep storage costs to a minimum by providing immediate access to any level of detail required to manage data protection environments. NetVault: Report Manager Pro is tightly integrated with BakBone's flagship data protection solution NetVault Backup, offering a single view into storage operations, which can significantly reduce backup administration time.
"The new file data management options in NetVault: Report Manager Pro are more robust and allow us to do a higher-level analysis of data redundancy," said Martin Frankhouse, network manager, University of Detroit Mercy. "The ability to monitor bandwidth and I/O usage will help us modify our IT structure internally. I am also looking forward to the improved log reporting in NetVault: Report Manager Pro for faster access to data and more granular search capabilities."
