Integrated data protection and analysis

NetBackup and Information Map

Illuminate your environment

Turn backup data into actionable intelligence

Today’s enterprise environment is fast-growing, often fragmented, and overwhelmingly complex. Organizations face daily questions about whether information is protected appropriately, whether data can or should be deleted, and whether they’re missing opportunities to move less-valuable data to cheaper options and active data to highly available locations. To address these challenges, Veritas delivers global data visibility through direct integration of NetBackup and Information Map.

  • Reduce the unnecessary costs of useless-data storage
  • Optimize backup policies based on real-time data use intelligence
  • Predict storage demands
  • Prioritize heightened risk areas for further investigation

Gain immediate visibility

Get a complete perspective faster than any scan or index

  • Find file type, ownership, age, and location in as little as 24 hours
  • See a real-time picture of your environment with continuous monitoring
  • Mine a centralized, granular view of your data inventory regardless of platform or infrastructure, including files stored within VM images and snapshots

Match policies to data

Architect accurate backup policies

  • Eliminate unnecessary backups or increase their frequency based on data change rates
  • Reduce data retention and backup storage requirements to lower costs and risk
  • Ensure headquarters and ROBO site backup policies are aligned by juxtaposing locations

Predict capacity demands

Forecast future protection and storage needs

  • React immediately to accurately expand or reduce capacity by area
  • Confidently plan cloud migration projects
  • Accommodate special users or locales with heavy demand

Get global data visibility

Find opportunity amidst the chaos

Organizations that don’t understand what data they own or what data is an asset and what is a liability may be paralyzed in the face of boundless infrastructure growth and expense. Veritas illuminates a path forward to making sense of your data.

  • See your global data environment in a few hours
  • Dynamically identify areas of waste and value
  • Fight back against the exponential data growth curve
  • Predict your storage needs into the future

Access a complete data inventory fast

Use rich insights in a cloud metadata repository

One of the toughest challenges to getting consistent access to unstructured data is an organization’s need to scan or index petabytes of data. Veritas takes a fundamentally different approach using the Veritas products already touching, managing, and storing that unstructured data. The resulting Information Map is delivered as a cloud service, built in the Veritas cloud environment and architected on the Veritas information fabric technology.

  • Manage a single platform layer applications can contribute intelligence to and consume from
  • Get immediate insight without scanning source data
  • Efficiently collect the latest metadata via Veritas NetBackup

Dynamically navigate through your data

Make better-informed decisions via visual justification

In a recent survey, Veritas customers said gaining visibility and better insight into their data is of great value. We designed and optimized the interface of the Information Map for easy visibility. You can narrow, explode, or adjust views and information as needed to understand the nature of the data you’re viewing.

  • Experience a geographic orientation of your data
  • View data by file server, by share, by user, or any combination
  • Orient the dashboard to match your preferences through malleable tiles


Save the data that actually needs saving

Not all data is equal

We’ve designed all filtering activities in the Information Map for real-time interaction, so you can quickly identify areas of risk, areas of value, and areas of waste across your entire storage environment. By using these interactive and visual insights, you can pursue new business cases with better intelligence about what exactly you own.

  • Make intelligent storage decisions about decommissioning servers and shares with little activity
  • Address stale data by identifying information that’s old or no longer in use
  • Handle retention management efforts like identifying PSTs for migration
  • Meet legal and compliance requirements like focusing eDiscovery collections on custodian data sets


Apply backup policies intelligently

Protect your data according to its value

Organizations must associate appropriate protection policies with the data that truly needs protection. Information Map offers quick filters for identifying orphaned, stale, or non-business data plus granular filters for age, size, and item type. We’ve optimized all filtering activities for real-time interaction, so you can quickly assess the nature of the data you’re protecting in NetBackup.

  • Eliminate unnecessary backups or increase the frequency based on data change rates
  • Reduce data retention and backup storage requirements to lower costs and risk
  • Ensure headquarters and ROBO site backup policies are aligned by juxtaposing locations


Anticipate resource and risk prevention needs

Be better prepared with data trend, ownership, and location information

With insight into the timing of data creation, organizations can view real-time global capacity status and quickly adjust to changing resource or activity demands. Using ownership information, you can also proactively ensure adherence to privacy regulations when deciding to move to the cloud.

  • Associate potential custodians with their data to help legal teams focus collection efforts
  • Increase protection of priority and high-activity shares
  • Investigate and shut down rogue applications working within the server or share
