What is JobR?

JobR mines all your backup processes looking for potential data loss events, i.e. backup job failures, and empowers you to remediate these immediately. JobR highlights failed backup jobs from multiple domains and vendor technologies, so you can quickly get back to business as usual.
 
Unlike the vendor-provided management consoles or monitoring tools, JobR proactively seeks out failure events through Process Mining and highlights these for your urgent action. Rules and automated remediations can be rapidly applied to immediate failed events and all future ones (should you wish to).

With JobR in play, Backup Admins are freed from repetitive, low-value tasks to focus on more strategic, high-value activities that contribute to the overall business objectives.

Key Features
  • Define the Backup Servers that you want to be monitored
  • Use out-of-the-box remediations and define your own
  • A single view of all your backup jobs, supporting multiple vendor technologies
  • Create rules to automate actions when job failures occur, e.g. restart job, without logging into the vendor's backup console.

JobR isn't just another monitoring tool; it's proactive Process Mining designed specifically for Backup and Recovery processes. Proactively managing your backup job failures means that business users can rest assured that their data will always be backed up and available, and Backup Admins;

  • Can mitigate data loss situations and rectify the situation immediately
  • Can create rules so JobR can automate repetitive tasks, thus freeing up time to do higher-value activities
  • Federate all your Backup technologies into a single view and management layer.
