What’s New in Information Map

Extensive connector footprint ensures multi-cloud data visibility

Veritas now delivers expansive visibility across different cloud and legacy on-premises data stores. The new Connection Center simplifies connector management and delivers a framework for future connector additions and enhancements.

  • IaaS Storage: Microsoft Azure File and Blob Storage, Google Cloud Platform Cloud Storage, AWS S3
  • SaaS Storage: Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, Box
  • Cloud Email and Productivity: Office 365 Exchange and SharePoint, G Suite

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 data store, 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 value, areas of risk, 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.

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