Next Generation Storage Management: Enabling End-to-End Transparency and Operational Control

Enterprise storage infrastructures are undergoing major transformations. The adoption of disk-based data protection architectures and online archives has shifted the focus of IT administrators towards the management of secondary or replicated data. These changes bring about a whole new set of operational challenges, thereby significantly redefining traditional notions and requirements for storage management.

EMC ControlCenter 6.0 Pumps Up the Volume - Product Profile

Enterprise data center management is far from simple. A dizzying array of interdependencies and relationships among applications, servers, storage, and networks and among virtualized, physical, and mixed resources conspire to make tracking, troubleshooting, and optimizing the overall infrastructure very difficult. Further exacerbating this tangled web of dependencies is the fact that the data center is organized by different functional specialties (server administration, storage administration, network management, etc) that must work together in order to optimize the overall performance and operations of crucial mission critical applications. Cross domain collaboration becomes critical in operating a data center at peak efficiency.

Jeff Boles from Taneja Validates Symantec Business Continuity for VMware Environments

Bookmark and Share

Speakers:

Jeff Boles, Sr. Analyst
Mike Reynolds, Sr. Product Marketing Manager

Summary:

Symantec is the only vendor that can solve the application awareness problem for high availability and disaster recovery in virtual environments without compromising native VMware tools such as vMotion, Site Recovery Manager (SRM) and Dynamic Resource Scheduler (DRS). This webcast featuring Jeff Boles from the Taneja Group, will discuss the hidden availability challenges for virtualized data centers, and discuss the best-in-class approach to building a high availability virtual infrastructure for today's business critical applications.

Symantec's unique business continuity solution for VMware environments will help you virtualize business critical applications by:

Recovering applications without a virtual machine reboot
Integrating with native VMware tools including vMotion, DRS, SRM and vCenter
Failing over from physical to virtual machines or vice versa
Reducing downtime for planned maintenance
Learn how Symantec will keep your applications protected and highly available.

In the Cloud Era, The Era of Convergence Is Upon Us

The era of IT infrastructure convergence is upon us. Every major vendor has some type of offering under this category. Startups and smaller players are also "talking" convergence. But what exactly is convergence and why are all the vendors so interested in getting included in this category? We will explain below the history of convergence, what it is, what it is not, what benefits accrue from such systems, who the players are, and who is leading the pack in true convergence.

Making your Virtual Infrastructure Non-Stop: Making availability efficient with Symantec products

All businesses have a core set of applications and services that are critical to their ongoing operation and growth. They are the lifeblood of a business. Many of these applications and services are run in virtual machines (VM), as over the last decade virtualization has become the de facto standard in the datacenter for the deployment of applications and services. Some applications and services are classified as business critical. These business critical applications require a higher level of resilience and protection to minimize the impact on a business’s operation if they become inoperable.

The ability to quickly recover from an application outage has become imperative in today’s datacenter. There are various methods that offer different levels of protection to maintain application uptime. These methods range from minimizing the downtime at the application level to virtual machine (VM) recovery to physical system recovery. Prior to virtualization, mechanisms were in place to protect physical systems and were based on having secondary hardware and redundant storage systems. However, as noted above, today most systems have been virtualized. The market leader in virtualization, VMware, recognized the importance of availability early on and created business continuity features in vSphere such as vMotion, Storage vMotion, vSphere Replication, vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM), vSphere High Availability (HA) and vSphere Fault Tolerance (FT). These features have indeed increased the uptime of applications in the enterprise, yet they are oriented toward protecting the VM. The challenge, as many enterprises have discovered, is that protecting the VM alone does not guarantee uptime for applications and services. Detecting and remediating VM failure falls short of what is truly vital, detecting and remediating application and service failures.

With application and service availability in mind, companies such as Symantec have come in to provide availability and resiliency for them. Focusing on improving how VMware can deliver application availability, Symantec has developed a set of solutions to meet the high availability and disaster recovery requirements of business critical applications. These solutions include Symantec ApplicationHA (developed in partnership with VMware) and Symantec Cluster Server powered by Veritas (VCS). Both of these products have been enhanced to work in a VMware-based virtual infrastructure environment.
