HPL Backup Navigator ist ein Zusatzprodukt für Data Protector, das die Herausforderungen der Optimierung der Sicherungs- und Wiederherstellungsumgebungen angeht. Backup Navigator nutzt Analysen, um Sicherheitslücken zu identifizieren, Probleme beim Backup und potenzielle Ressourcenkonflikte zu finden und zu lösen. Er bietet eine rasche Analyse des Ursachen der Probleme und führt eine datenorientierte Planung für künftige Kapazitätsanforderungen durch. Dies führt zu einer zuverlässigeren Backup- und Wiederherstellungsumgebung, die flexibler und effizienter ist und eine bessere Unterstützung der Geschäftsstrategie eines Unternehmens bietet.


Intelligent Dashboards

Customizable and interactive dashboard and reports provide insights into 75+ key performance indicators related to backup and recovery operations. Immediately identify inefficiencies within the backup operations and the unbalanced use of backup resources, and uncover failures before they are exposed in the recovery process. Customize and tailor reports to match the specific needs of the operator, organization, team or administrator to enable decision making and trigger appropriate actions.

Real-time Predictive Analytics

Visual insight into the backup and recovery process based on daily use, along with trending and forecasting algorithms reveal future performance and capacity gaps and requirements specific to your data set characteristics, infrastructure capabilities, and organizational requirements.

Rapid Root-cause Analysis and Problem Solving

Potential resource conflicts and systematic/systemic issues can be proactively detected and addressed before they cascade into outages and data loss that negatively impact business operations.

Collaboration and Cross-system Support

Report creation can be automated, scheduled, and shared with stakeholders within the organization, or securely isolated and made available to external customers who rely on the backup and recovery service. The same information can be exported in a variety of formats for inclusion into other organizational systems.

"What-if" Scenario Evaluation

Intelligent insights into current backup and recovery operations before new datasets are included in the process can identify whether or not service-level agreements would remain achievable, identify impacts to the backup infrastructure (physical capacity, network load, device loads, etc.), and reveal the best ways to balance the demands of new datasets within the existing infrastructure.

Multi-cell and Multi-tenant Environments

In environments that require more than one Data Protector Cell Manager, Backup Navigator can generate reports that present data across cells, with each report scoped and ran across multiple cells. For service providers or large, geographically dispersed organizations that require multi-tenant support, Backup Navigator can generate specific reports per tenant and provide a separate auditing report that includes charge-back information.
