Data Protection: Connect. Collaborate. Share. Get Predictive Insights with HP Backup Navigator

In my previous blog post, I shared an exciting announcement made by HP Autonomy last week in our data protection offering. We launched Adaptive Backup and Recovery Phase II by introducing three complimentary products: 

  • HP Backup Navigator for HP Data Protector
  • Data Protection Management Pack
  • HP Data Protector 9.0

Today, I want to focus on HP Backup Navigator, a revolutionary product that is built to enhance your backup and recovery experience by providing an interactive and intuitive dashboard, real-time predictive analytics, drill-down reporting for rapid root cause analysis, flexible personalized reporting, report subscription, and automated report sharing.

Make smarter decisions

HP Backup Navigator eliminates the need for IT staff to have to isolate data protection problems at a point when business needs are centered on the need to recover vital information. Instead, having end-to-end insight into the physical and logical data protection infrastructure, you can make smarter decisions concerning how the backup and recovery process is implemented and uncover the root causes of issues before the business has to rely on that process. 


Strong visualization + real-time operational analytics

HP Backup Navigator combines strong visualization and real-time operational analytics to simplify and optimize your overall backup and recovery experience with a wide range of advantages:


  • Stay adaptive and proactive. Use the dashboard to immediately identify inefficiencies within the backup operations and utilization of backup resources, and uncover failures before they are exposed in the recovery process. 
  • Bring it all together. Correlate related, but often disparate, pools of information using the interactive, web-based reporting tool.
  • Chart performance and utilization. View content graphically in the form of dashboards, graphs, charts, with detailed information around the backup performance and capacity utilization.
  • Gain insight. Navigator offers an intuitive and interactive dashboard with analytical reports based on 80+ key performance indicators related to backup and recovery operations.

Create a fact-based data protection strategy

With HP Backup Navigator, you can base your data protection strategy on an assessment, supported by real-time analytics and trending to ensure that maximum infrastructure utilization can be achieved without sacrificing the success of the operation. With so much information to be analyzed, HP Backup Navigator enables you to create flexible, customized visualizations that can be scheduled and shared with key stakeholders or for collaboration with members of the IT staff.  In addition, these valuable reports can be exported into a variety of forms and formats for ingestion into other systems such as broader business analytics, billing systems, regulatory reporting, datacenter health, etc.
