Veritas Storage Foundation and High Availability (SFHA) Solutions 6.0.1 supports multiple virtualization technologies for Linux environments.

Virtualization technologies enable the creation of isolated virtual machine environments on the same physical system. The virtualized computing environment is abstracted from all physical devices, enabling you to consolidate and centrally manage your workloads on a system.

For information on which Symantec products are supported on which virtualization technologies, see:
