Operational resilience is the economical balance between an organization’s requirements for service availability and the consequence of an interruption to that service.  The likelihood that your organization will experience a catastrophic loss from a material service interruption caused by an IT operational-problem is far greater than any service interruption being caused by some disaster or ‘black swan’ event.  So if the overarching objective is to protect our organizations from bad events that generate losses then it is time to focus our attention to creating resilient IT operations.   

We live in a technology driven world.  Every possible business processes has been automated; automated to the point where Information Technology is deeply embedded in the operating fabric of our business and the organization is now highly dependent on information technology.  IT has become a microcosm of the organization and it is used to...

Recently some have said that the ultimate goal for Business Continuity Management (BCM) practitioners is to get “business continuity management activities out from the computer room and into the business and boardroom”.  Most likely this is the remnant from bygone era in business continuity; the notion that the computer room, or more appropriately the modern data center, should be relegated to disaster recovery (DR) activities, undeserving of serious attention for the business-oriented BCM practitioner.    Nothing could be further from the truth in today’s business-world and if our ‘best practice’ provides this type of misdirected guidance then we have completely lost touch with reality.  

Technology has transformed the way we do business and that transformation puts the data center directly into the domain of business-oriented practitioner because the data center is the largest source of operational risk in any...

It's clear from both talking to our customers and reading the analysts reports that cloud is here to stay. Most customers I speak with are looking at some form of cloud services in their organizations. This tends to vary from something as simple as an application being delivered through the cloud, a good example of this was recently at Symantec our HR system is now a cloud SAS service. More cutting edge applications are looking at full service provisioning from the point of IT request to the delivery of a fully functioning application/service all run through a self service engine.

This is the vision of many organizations to make the delivery of new systems seamless and self service. Cloud comes with many challenges from the Security aspects to the radical shift of IT organization needed to enable cloud services. At Symantec we have many solutions to ease this pain and make the consumption of Cloud services a safe affordable reality. Something that separates Symantec from...

During the recent VMworld conference in San Francisco, Lorenzo Galelli's (Symantec Senior Technical Product Manager) presentation on application availability in virtual environments was a huge success, and not only because he gave away some pretty cool prizes. Lorenzo covered several topics including VMware native tool compatibility and multi-tiered application support and gave a demo of the latest release of VCS with VMware functionality.

I had the pleasure of attending VMworld 2012 this week and had every intention of blogging daily from the venue. Suffice it to say that between working in the booth a few hours each day and meetings on the side with Symantec customers and partners, that just didn't happen. On the other hand, I did manage to spot Brent Spiner (Data from the Star Trek: The Next Generation series) at the event.
 
As I said, I spent several hours each day in the Symantec booth talking with customers (current and future!) about our new release of Veritas Cluster Server due out this Fall. This release is pretty exciting in that it has enhancements allowing users to install VCS on Windows and Linux VMware guests, providing application failover between virtual machines. This gives customers another level of protection beyond what our ApplicationHA product delivers so our customers can now select the appropriate level of availability based on service...

You've Already Virtualized, Now What?

Virtualization is everywhere, but IT organizations are still looking for ways to cut costs.  One way to do that, is to…  virtualize even more applications!  However, the easy stuff has been done.  File and print servers, cafeteria menus and the company picnic blog have been virtualized.  The next step is to move up the chain and virtualize business and mission critical applications.  But the risks of virtualization are still there.  How do I monitor and protect my application and business services in the event of a failure, or even a site wide disaster?  What happens to the performance or availability of my data when a path connecting a virtual machine to the storage fails?  These are the roadblocks that are preventing IT organizations from virtualizing more of their business critical services and applications.  The good news is Symantec can help...
