Universal Data Management (UDM)
Managing corporate data is a complex task. Talk to any IT administrator and they will no doubt tell you that some of their most daunting and critical challenges on a daily basis circle around applying data protection to highly disparate environments, managing application-centric policies and managing messaging applications for various purposes, including retention of data and ensuring compliance.
BakBoneâ€™s Universal Data Management strategy revolves around a three-pronged approach for managing data within a corporate environment: Integrated Data Protection, Message Management, and Centralized Policy Management.
Benefits of UDM:
BakBone's UDM framework is made up of a comprehensive set of data protection technologies, including:
Including availability, retention, and security of data is the foundation of BakBoneâ€™s UDM strategy. A combined suite of data protection solutions allows you to centrally protect and ensure availability of your most critical server and application data, whether it resides in physical, virtual or cloud environments.
BakBoneâ€™s data protection framework embraces a new model of availability and data retention that is flexible, cost-effective, and easy to integrate and manage using an integrated â€œbuilding blockâ€ approach to help you achieve your data protection objectives, increase business value and reduce risk. This comprehensive suite of heterogeneous technologies is seamlessly managed from a centralized console.
Most of todayâ€™s enterprise email systems and applications are based on 25-year old technology for processing and delivering. This limits performance, security, stability â€“ which creates the potential for serious issues with companyâ€™s most important communication channel. BakBone is replacing this legacy technology with a new generation of optimized solutions for email and messaging based on ColdSparkâ€™s SparkEngine platform, a powerful new type of enterprise email platform. This new patent-pending technology re-engineers the SMTP email routing and delivery process.
We intend to provide a "data-centric" approach to creating, applying and maintaining policies across the enterprise. Our centralized policy management solutions are being designed to allow enterprises to apply and manage their policies on data, rather than on multiple disparate applications. This technology will allow applications to inherit and implement these global data-centric policies for services like: data deduplication, encryption, data protection and message archiving. We believe the approach of applying policies to data that is both in motion across the network and at rest in structured repositories, such as file systems, databases and messaging systems, makes our approach to policy management powerful.
