Reduce risk through data visualization

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 cheaper storage opportunities. Veritas Information Map helps address these challenges by providing an immersive visual experience that lets you gain insight into your unstructured data.

  • Aggregate a comprehensive view of your global information environment
  • Identify areas of risk, areas of value, areas of waste, and areas of further interest
  • Reduce the unnecessary costs of useless-data storage
  • Prioritize heightened risk areas for further investigation

  • Find file type, ownership, age, and location in as little as 24 hours
  • Get 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 remote 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

In the face of boundless infrastructure growth and expense, organizations that don’t understand what data they own or what data is an asset and a liability may be paralyzed. Veritas illuminates a path forward by helping you make 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

Leverage 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
  • Gain immediate insight without scanning source data
  • Efficiently  collect the latest of 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. That’s why 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

See why not all data is created equal

We’ve optimized 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 things like 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 their frequency based on data change rates
  • Reduce data retention and backup storage requirements to lower costs and risk
  • Ensure headquarters and remote 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 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
