From application recovery to data protection, Symantec provides solutions to help customers keep their business on-line.  One recent event that has everyone thinking and talking about disaster recovery planning is Hurricane Sandy.  We asked a panel of disaster recovery experts from Symantec to discuss best practices and real life examples of disaster recovery strategies that they have seen first hand.  The recording of that webcast entitled "Surviving the Wrath of Sandy: Is your IT organization really ready in the event of a disaster?" is now available on Virtualization Review.  Please register and learn how your peers are approaching disaster recovery planning.

Operational risk is everywhere in the business environment, every decision has its share of uncertainty.  Nothing is a sure thing, yet we when we make important decision we certainly want to “keep the odds in our favor”.  I have often heard the terms like ‘risk appetite’, ‘risk tolerance’, or ‘risk aversion’ used in reference to making forward-looking choices about operational risk as if we can rationally and effectively manage risk based on our subjective feelings.  These terms, however, provide little guidance and position risk-management in the domain of oracles and soothsayers.  Business is not a game of chance based on our subjective ‘feelings’ regarding operational risk. 

The stakes are too high relative to operational risk to leave it to subjective guesses or ‘gut’...

Over the past six months I have seen a resurgence in interest in the Veritas Cluster Server brand, this is due to a number of factors. Firstly I strongly believe that Data Centre's are finally beginning to virtualise their critical applications. Secondly the latest version fo Veritas Cluster Server now includes Vmware support for seamless failover using VMDK disks. I have recently been involved in three projects where customers have been testing Veritas Cluster Server against Oracle and Websphere to make sure it can actually do what it says on the tin. I am pleased to announce that yes it actually works and all have been successful. As anticipated the ability to use the native VMDK as a unit of failover is making customers considerably less nervous about virtualising their applications. This is great news for both Symantec and our loyal customers.

I was also delighted to see that Symantec have also released a support statement for our Cluster Filesystem in Vmware...

The benefits of data center consolidation are apparent; they save millions of dollars and improve the overall quality of service.  It is easy to see that too many data centers adds unnecessary costs, it chips away at manageability, increases complexity and contributes to a number of operating inefficiencies.  Realizing the economic benefits of data center consolidation can be elusive, the challenge is to circumvent the potential pitfalls that complicated the transformation process.

Data center consolidations involve much more than just moving servers or data from one location into another.  Data centers have become a conglomeration of disparate technologies running on combination of virtual platforms, physical platforms, and clustered platforms that operate an assortment of systems and access a range of data-tiers that are stored on multiple arrays from a whole host of hardware vendors.  

In addition to the...

Red Hat & Symantec Join Forces to Accelerate Next Generation Clouds

Commercially supported enterprise Linux platforms have an incredibly bright future as core building blocks for next-generation, highly resilient data centers and agile private and hybrid clouds. Yet to fully optimize Linux to support the demands of increasingly business-critical workloads, organizations need to heed enterprise requirements around disaster recovery, high availability, and storage management. To facilitate such a demand, Symantec and Red Hat have partnered together. As a partnership “built on strengths,” Red Hat and Symantec provide the following solutions: Automated off-premise disaster recovery, cost-effective failover for Oracle databases, and improved storage performance for heterogeneous data centers. Further, customers achieve low-cost, flexibility and more robust performance. To learn more about this unique...

We are seeing great adoption rate for our newest SFHA releases (6.0 & 6.0.1) and customer escalation data shows a marked improvement in quality over previous release (5.1SP1). In the last year (Nov 2011-Oct 2012), deployments of 5.1SP1 and 6.0/6.0.1 releases were equal in number whereas the customer escalations received on 6.0/6.0.1 stream were just 40% as compared to those received on 5.1SP1. And the good news doesn’t stop there! It is common that an escalation does not actually end up in product code changes and the trend continues, significantly smaller number of customer escalations on 6.0/6.0.1 stream resulted in product changes as compared to previous release.
