OpsCenter Analytics, formerly Backup Reporter, helps enhance backup and archive operations, verify service level compliance with more in depth policy and schedule information, and align backup and archiving with the business. OpsCenter Analytics provides multi product and platform support, business reporting, and complete customization, providing enhanced visibility and control into backup environment and operations.
Symantec OpsCenter Analytics 7.5 allows you to perform advanced NetBackup search and hold operations based on indexing the file system metadata that is associated with the backup images.
Effective business and IT planning
With data volumes growing exponentially year over year, IT staff require ample insight into their information management infrastructures for effective business planning of their backup and archive operations. It is imperative to be able to quickly identify growth trends and resource needs in order to ensure backups occur within established backup windows. OpsCenter Analytics provides reports that aggregate historical data to help support accurate forecasting of critical resources such as tape media. For further flexibility, OpsCenter Analytics allows you to analyze costs and charges by application, department, geography, or whichever business-level views you have created.
Verify backup service-level compliance
External demands from regulatory agencies, bodies, shareholders, and other key stakeholders have changed the paradigm, requiring IT staff to rethink how their data protection operations are run. It is critical for organizations to be able to prove the recoverability of key information assets, to document compliance with recovery-time and recovery-point objective requirements, to analyze risk and quantify exposure, and to assess the recoverability of clients and applications. The customizable, sophisticated, and flexible reporting capabilities of OpsCenter Analytics can help identify and monitor such risk. These reports could be automatically emailed to designated key stakeholders such as the CIO, legal team leads, and financial business leaders.
Align backup and archive with the business
Because of budget constraints, cost allocation has become essential. IT managers need the flexibility to relate backup and archive infrastructure costs to business owners for chargeback and to do sophisticated cost analysis. OpsCenter Analytics makes this process easy by consolidating and allocating costs across backup and archive services using pricing models that are defined to meet the business need. Invoices can be presented to business customers and export chargeback tables sent to third-party billing systems; or simply use the data to analyze and justify expenditures.
Customized hierarchical views and reportsProduct Highlights
OpsCenter Analytics' hierarchical, business-level views allow organizations to track and analyze backup and archive operations by whatever view best aligns with their business needs. Some common business-level views include geography, service level, or application. These views can be created quickly through the interactive GUI or by importing information from your asset or configuration management databases. There are facilities to automate the import of these business views. OpsCenter Analytics maintains hierarchies that identify and eliminate the overlaps and gaps that create report discrepancies. View top-level summaries of your areas of responsibility or drill down to the layer or asset of immediate interest. The process is easy to set up and navigate, so it takes the burden off skilled data center staff - even non-specialist and help-desk staff can see how the backups are working. Since OpsCenter Analytics supports information tailored to the requirements of the recipient, business users and IT managers have the information they need to do their jobs without wading through the technical details.
