Product Description:

Symantec ApplicationHA provides monitoring capabilities for applications running

inside virtual machines hosted on ESX or ESXi hosts managed by aVMwarevCenter


Symantec ApplicationHA adds a layer of application awareness to the core

High Availability functionality offered by VMware virtualization technology.

Symantec ApplicationHA is based on Veritas™Cluster Server (VCS) and internally

uses similar concepts such as agents, resources, and service groups. However, it

does not include the high availability cluster components such as the Global

Atomic Broadcast (GAB) and Low Latency Transport (LLT).

Symantec ApplicationHA has a lightweight server footprint that allows faster installation

and configuration.

New Features, Functionality, & Highlights:

Enhances the availability of Tier 1 virtualized applications by providing a mechanism to detect and recover from application failures
Improves the manageability of virtualized applications by providing visibility of the application’s status and application control (that is, starting or stopping the application) through a single pane of glass — VMware vSphere Client, the user interface for vCenter Server
Reduces operational complexity and TCO by eliminating the need for different operating system–based clustering products
Allows customers to enhance the availability of their applications without sacrificing the use of advanced VMware features such as vMotion and DRS
