Taneja says "Symantec Veritas Cluster Server Takes Vrtual Server HA to the Next Level"

This is an awesome testimonial from Jeff Byrnes, an analyst from Taneja Group, who provides expert analysis and consulting services for the computer storage and server industries.

“All in all, we think the latest Veritas Cluster Server for VMware release adds significant value to customers running business-critical applications in virtualized environments.”

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...

Last year when Symantec Solutions Architect that we work with asked us to try VOM, I shrugged off the idea thinking it might be just another product. It was not until two months ago when we needed to have a web based VCS Client (SAs were doing remote desktop sessions to various terminal servers some of those did not have VCS Java Clients that was quite frustrating when responding to an urgent call) so we thought of installing VOM. The moment I installed this product, with little effort it was ready to go. What we originally adopted as a web based client proved much more than that, it is in fact our official monitoring dashboard. Great thing about VOM is you can add Solaris Cluste Nodes and that will provide visibility to all the Solaris Virtual Zones running on the hosts and even Oracle databases running inside the zones. Then you can add VCenter Server and that will provide visibility to all the virtual machines running on ESXi hosts connected to the VCenter...
