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 partnership and how...

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.

Would you like to simplify management and high availability of LPARs (AIX logical partitions) and application running inside it? Are you moving to the private cloud?

Try our ApplicationHA for LPARs and make your application in the LPAR and the LPAR itself highly available. You can achieve this with Veritas Cluster Server in just one LPAR per physical server and light weight ApplicationHA in rest of the LPARs.

The ApplicationHA LPARs will auto-register, auto-restart and auto-failover! And that‘s not all. We support across platforms - VMWare, Solaris LDOMs and Linux KVM. More information can be found at https://www.symantec.com/application-ha.

Configuration wizard for creating a cluster provides option to setup LLT with Ethernet or UDP/IP protocol. This post provides some details on which option to choose. 

Cluster configuration wizard (VCW) detects NIC cards available for configuring LLT network links on each windows server.  Selecting NIC(s) for each server configures LLT to use Ethernet protocol.  If is important to make sure that each NIC is connected (either directly OR via a layer 2 switch) via separate network hardware for increased fault tolerance.  This is relatively easy to ascertain for Ethernet, since connection traverses a few network components. All windows servers connected to same Ethernet  are able to discover each other (ARP) dynamically.  This makes changing network configuration for cluster relatively simple. LLT traffic network overhead is low.  For large number of virtual machines hosted on a hypervisor in a datacenter, this type of...

This week Telefonica the owner of O2 have controversially announced they will start selling their O2 mobile customer data to third parties. Through Telefonica's Dynamic Insights business unit they are looking to drive revenue out of mining data to sell to third parties. They will take their phone network data and anonymise  and aggregate it. The product will be called Smart Steps and will be sold to public sector companies to enable them to measure compare and understand what factors influence the number of people visiting a location. The aim is so that retailers can then make informed decisions on things like locations and opening times for shops. The big question is around privacy in the use of their customer data. People reacted very strongly when Google started using customer data for their targeted advertising and this seems to be in the same vein. As a mobile phone user I am not sure how happy I am effectively having my movements traced even though I understand this...
