For some organizations, the idea of virtualizing their mission critical applications is perceived to be more riskier and its advantages are not yet compelling to make the switch.  In fact, according to Symantec's latest Virtualization and Evolution to the Cloud Survey, 40% of CEOs and 42% of CFOs are reluctant to make the leap to virtualization.  Some of the cited reservations are around downtime and the lack of visibility into virtualized environments.  However, IT users can get around these challenges by making sure that they deploy virtualization tools that are suited for their particular needs. A foolproof virtualization plan can deliver cost savings, efficiency, increased productivity, high availability, disaster recovery, etc.  Recently, Dan Lamorena, Product Marketing Director within Symantec's Storage and Availability Management Group authored an article in the ...

Late last year, we changed the name of Veritas Operations Services (VOS) to Symantec Operations Readiness Tools (SORT) [http://sort.symantec.com]  and we enhanced the site to help new users understand more about the available features. 

As you’ve likely seen, the main SORT webpage is geared toward educating new users about SORT features and functions. 

For previous VOS users, we suggest going directly to the MySORT page (http://mysort.symantec.com).  MySORT is the old VOS home page with a few minor changes.  You’ll see a color template difference but the old VOS functionality is still there including enhancements based on previously received feedback.

If you just want to use the tools and services, go to the MySORT page and get started (http://mysort.symantec.com).  You can generate reports for...

Veritas Dynamic Multi-Pathing for Windows (DMPW) adds additional fault tolerance to disk storage by making use of multiple paths between a server/host computer and a disk in a storage array. A path is a connection between the server/host computer and the storage array’s disks and consists of a host adapter and a SCSI bus connection to one or more SCSI disks or a fiber optic channel connected to a hub, switch, or array. Thus, multiple paths are made possible by connecting two or more host bus adapters with either SCSI or fiber optic cabling to the storage array. DMPW manages the multiple paths so that the data on each of the array’s disks is accessible to the host computer. If a path to a disk fails, Dynamic Multi-Pathing automatically transmits data to and from the disk over an alternate path.

The paths on an array are set up to work in two ways—either in Active/Active mode, which provides load balancing of the data between multiple paths, or in Active/...

Blogger Jerome Wendt recently posted an entry about Veritas Dynamic Multi-Pathing (DMP) on his site.  You can read what he has to say about DMP and the fact that it is now available as a standalone product.  Check out his entry at:

http://symantec.dciginc.com/2010/08/symantecs-dmp-no-strings-attached.html

Now DMP is available as a standalone product to support file systems other than VxFS.  It is available now on Solaris, AIX, and Linux.  Coming in November, DMP as a standalone product will be available on HP-UX and Windows.  DMP is still included with Storage Foundation and will be in the future.  The advantage with DMP as a separate product is that now DMP can be added to an existing server without having to convert any file systems to VxFS.
