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...

Introducing Veritas Operations Manager 5.0 and Veritas Operations Manager Advanced 5.0

Over the past year, many technology conferences discussed about explosive data growth. If you attended some, you’ve probably seen the quote that “the growth of data is 40% to 60% over the next two years1” multiple times up on the big screen. True enough, this problem warrants a storage solution that can keep up with data growth while minimizing the risk of unexpected errors or downtime and managing diversity in the data center.

Every IT vendor is trying to tackle this problem and the other challenges that come into play in storage and availability management:

  • Increased expectations to be up and running 24x7
  • Complexity and diversity with array vendors, applications and platforms
  • Low storage utilization rate
  • Introduction of new technologies

Let’s take the example of new technologies, such as...

Storage Tiering is a fairly well known concept in IT. Like many of these technologies It can often take many years before these cool concepts make it into the mainstream. Thin provisioning is a good example of this. I remember meeting 3PAR and them going over the technology with me. Here we are 5 years later and whilst thin provisioning is now very mainstream, customers implementations vary massively from Netapps check box implementation to many customers not wanting to over provision for fear of running out of storage at all. Storage Tiering is very simply the ability to move data about between different tiers of storage presented to the same host. Hardware vendors provide this in some high end arrays where it does of course come at a high cost and you can only tier within an enclosure. Over time these technologies have improved, for a long time arrays could only tier at a lun level, meaning you had to move everything on a given lun to another higher/lower tiered lun. Technologies...

A funny thing happened the other day when I went to one of my favorite sites to look up a word...I saw the above message, but looking at the redirect URL, it says "failover-namechangedtoprotecttheinnocent.com". Now, far be it from me to be correcting the vocabulary of a site whose stock in trade is word definitions, but in the high availability biz, that is NOT what we mean by "failover". A failover is when you have a service under HA cluster control, and in the event of a failure, that service is relocated to another server in the cluster. In its entirety.

Clearly there was some attempt made at protecting the service, otherwise my browser would have just thrown an error saying the site wasn't available. But it's just as clear that protection wasn't extended to the entire business service. We introduced Virtual Business Services to Veritas Cluster...
