Simple, yet powerful metrics to determine the health and protection status of your Spectrum Protect environment in a single pane of glass.
Malvern, Pa. (August 1, 2020) – Galileo is pleased to announce the release of its monitoring agent for IBM Spectrum Protect™. IBM Spectrum Protect is a popular choice for scalable data protection among many organizations. It allows them to manage billions of objects per backup server, migrate data to diverse locations, and reduce backup infrastructure costs.
Today, Galileo is expanding the capabilities of its comprehensive infrastructure performance monitoring solution, Galileo Performance Explorer, by adding the IBM Spectrum Protect agent. Users can now monitor their data protection application in collaboration with cloud, storage, database, server, and SAN environment metrics.
Backups Are Tough
Currently, IT administrators use a mix of tools to perform the tedious process of reporting and trending their backup infrastructure. This often causes inaccuracies in reporting and delays in troubleshooting. As a result, it also adds unnecessary risk to an organization’s most critical infrastructure assets. Moreover, monitoring tools available today fail to add value beyond visual presentation.
Galileo solves this challenge by providing instant visibility into the condition of Spectrum Protect environments, as well as detailed analytics to easily and quickly pinpoint where any issues may lie. Backed by decades of experience with Spectrum Protect, Galileo provides insight beyond what is readily available in Operations Center (OC) or command-line queries.
Rich Davis, a Senior Developer at Galileo, understands the challenges that IT teams face. He used that knowledge as the driver in developing Galileo’s unrivaled monitoring agent. “Backups are tough, and they always have been,” says Davis. “When you have a large amount of backups processing, say 1,500, how do you know for sure that you’re protected? Our goal was to answer that question, and I think we nailed it.” He goes on to say, “In a single view you can instantly see every major Spectrum Protect process and be confident you’re protected, or you can zero in on what needs to be fixed if you’re not.”
A longtime Galileo customer, who is responsible for a large Spectrum Protect infrastructure at a government agency agrees. “This is a one-stop-shop. It keeps me from logging into multiple tools and places to troubleshoot backup failures. I can click into the detail for the timeframe selected and quickly gather the information I need to solve my problems. That’s a real time saver.”
