Symantec unveils Veritas 6.0 and Vault 7.0

Symantec announced Veritas Backup Reporter 6.0, an enterprise backup reporting tool that provides IT administrators with a single corporate view of backup and recovery operations.

The California-based software company also released Symantec Enterprise Vault 7.0, an e-mail, instant message and content archiving application.

Symantec's Backup Reporter allows IT administrators to verify backup service-level compliance, and run backups as a shared IT service for chargeback purposes.

According to Erica Antony, senior product manager for Symantec's Veritas NetBackup, Backup Reporter helps IT managers proactively meet services levels by providing tools such as library capacity reporting.

Steve Frewin, a storage administrator at TD Banknorth in Portland, Maine, says he currently uses Command Central Service, the previous version of Backup Reporter, across the corporation.

"I can do monitoring today and it will tell me what tape drives are in use, but ... it can only look back two or three days, but a library reporting tool would allow you to do trending of our library a lot easier," he says. "I would be very interested in looking at that."

Backup Reporter offers a single view of a backup environment across both NetBackup and Backup Exec products, in addition to the software reporting across IBM's Tivoli Storage Manager, EMC's Legato NetWorker and CommVault's Galaxy backup software.

Backup Reporter also has several preconfigured reporting spreadsheets, and the reports can be scheduled and distributed via e-mail, Antony said. Reports can be filtered by custom parameters that can be designated to meet a company's needs. For example, backup utilization can be presented in a variety of parameters, such as geography, application, business unit, platform, location and service tier. The software also tracks backup times at the host server level.

"That's one of the features I asked for with Command Central," Frewin says. "I'll be able to see the amount of time it took for the backup rather than just the scheduled time. Then I can compare when the backup actually started and get insight into how busy my backup environments are."

Pricing ranges from US$135 to $600 per backup device.

Symantec's announcement of Enterprise Vault 7.0 enables IT managers to archive and classify e-mail, instant messaging and other content

The software supports Apple's Mac Entourage e-mail and Safari Web browser, as well as Microsoft Outlook and all major iterations of instant messaging software, both public and corporate.
