As we've mentioned many times on these blog pages, organizations are virtualizing more of their applications for good reason.  Virtualization means lower costs for power and cooling, with greater agility.  However, there are risks in terms of virtualizing business critical applications as it relates to high availability and disaster recovery.  While the VMware tools protect the VM and the physical infrastructure from failures, they are not aware of the applications running in the virtual environment.  This is the "application blind spot" that IT organizations need to consider as they move business critical applications to virtual environments.  The Symantec high availability and disaster recovery solution, aka Veritas Cluster Server, monitors and recovers applications removing this blind spot.  To learn more about these capabilities, please visit our "Application Blind Spot" website and download analyst reports from IDC and Taneja Group.
