Today, Symantec released Veritas Operations Manager (VOM) 6.0, which brings the organization a step closer in delivering on the vision of providing complete end-to-end business continuity across the data center.

Overview

Veritas Operations Manager is a centralized operationally focused tool that enhances the management of Storage Foundation, Dynamic Multi-Pathing, Cluster Server, and ApplicationHA across different application, server, virtualization, and storage platforms. In addition to providing a complete centralized management interface for those environments, VOM discovers a wealth of detail about the adjacent configuration, including visibility into storage array configuration, the SAN connectivity and fabrics, multi-vendor virtualization and server platforms, and applications, such as MS SQL Server and Oracle Databases.

By having a wide perspective on the configuration, VOM enables customers to:

  • Minimize risk by allowing them to better understand the dependencies in their configurations from various perspectives.
  • Accelerate operations by standardizing on the proven Storage and Availability solutions from Symantec.
  • Optimize storage and server assets through better reporting and simplified remediation.
