Mark Doncov, senior manager of product marketing for EMC Corporation (, says:

Today, many organizations through a variety of reasons deploy multiple solutions that help backup, replicate and ultimately protect information. Customers can now look to data protection management solutions that help encapsulate all of these technologies, reducing the number of management interfaces needed for backup, simplifying operations. Customers can also consolidate the monitoring, reporting and analysis of their entire data protection environment into a single solution, collecting data from across the infrastructure – software, hardware, networks, domains and locations. Doing this will drive down cost through increased automation, faster troubleshooting, fewer failures, while reducing risk through enhanced service level agreement management and visibility into the protection levels of business critical data.
