"Symantec Operations Readiness Tools (SORT) is a set of Web-based tools that supports Storage Foundation and NetBackup products.

SORT automates and simplifies some of the most time-consuming administrator tasks. It is designed to help you, the system administrator, identify risks in your data centers and improve operational efficiency, enabling you to manage the complexity associated with data center architectures and scale." - [Courtesy : SORT Website]

When you saw Data Center Down! did you have questions? Wonder why the failover took 4 minutes? What it was like to set up a DR scenario on a roof? How San Jose City Hall let us do this?

In this LIVE show, the production and engineering crews of the Data Center Down! answered these questions and more. They explored what it’s really like to throw a 500lb server rack loaded with enterprise software from the roof and have it all failover to a secondary site - without any visual effects or camera tricks.

The engineers went through the technology that made it happen. The video crew talked about the high stakes production.

Professor John Graham of Indiana University points out that “large amounts of resources are devoted to slight or speculative dangers while substantial and well-documented dangers remain unaddressed”.  It has been well established that people often too much weight is placed on risks of low probability.  Such is the dilemma of complexity within IT infrastructure.  We often talk about hackers, malware, floods, fires, earthquakes, and tornados; while the real crisis is happening right under our nose and it has well over 5,000 risk signatures.  This crisis is the complexity in the IT infrastructure and it is causing considerable losses for companies.

The likelihood that an organization will experience a catastrophic loss from an IT failure is far greater than any catastrophic disaster or "black swan" event.   IT failures are costing companies trillions of dollars every year; worldwide downtime is estimated at over $35 Billion...

"Is Oracle putting Oracle Solaris Cluster on an EOL trajectory?"

What a question to begin a blog! So what’s happening? What has Oracle done? Oracle has made significant changes to the purchase and support of Oracle Solaris Cluster:

First, Oracle is now charging for Sun Cluster (with no maintenance discounting) at $3,000 per CPU core! (Source: For example, the perpetual licence cost for Oracle Solaris Cluster on a two-CPU Solaris T-4 system with 32 cores, (that’s 2*32*$3,000) is $192,000 at list price! A very significant cost, even after discount, for a product that used to be free!

Second, Oracle has dropped support for Symantec's Storage Foundation with Oracle Solaris...

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to visit one of the Symantec customers I work with. They have been using VOM for a while and I wanted to hear from them how they are using our products. It was very nice to see how much value it is providing to them. Big topics where VOM is helping are around Compliance, Performance Statistics and Manageability.

When having an environment with hundreds of servers, having a way to determine the patch levels, versions, packages, etch is very important. Even more important to understand that all the configuration is running in compliance. This customer is using signatures from VOM and have even developed his own ones to verify every day that all the configuration is as it should be.

Another topic very appreciated is how VOM is helping them with performance statistics. It is very easy now to detect I/O peaks in advance that could lead to greater problems. Once they get the alert, they go to the...
