Consider the following situations:

  • Ever had the problem where you are running blind on your storage utilization? The application owner asks for more storage every month and you wonder how he is utilizing the  storage you allocated last month.
  • Ever had your CIO ask you tough questions, “What is our global storage capacity and utilization?” And you wish you had the latest consolidated report emailed to you the previous night. Or even better a live dashboard.
  • Ever wished you knew how well aligned are the strategic applications to the underlying storage? You have no idea if your mission critical application is using tier-3 or tier-1 storage without several disparate checkpoints.
  • It’s about time somebody stopped telling you how bad your storage utilization is and actually gave you an easy way to remediate this problem without any application downtime.

Enter Veritas Operation Manager Advanced 4.0!...

"The future of the datacenter has gotten really cloudy lately..."

It’s the season of IT vendor user conferences.  Wonder what the focus of the conferences is this year?  I’m sure it won’t come as a surprise that every conference has a theme around “The Cloud”.  The most interesting thing to me is that each conference has “The Solution” as well.  If you sit in these conferences for very long, you immediately figure out that you can have your cloud just by using the vendor’s products.  This “cloud in a box” solution sounds really good until you start looking inside their cloud and understand what’s really happening.  By choosing their solution, you just locked into this chosen vendor’s solutions for the cloud.  It’s the same old story: vendor lock-in with just a different name or technology.

When we think about the cloud, the whole...

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 ...

A lot of us are bombarded with messages about the cloud and differening views and opinions on what is a cloud. I guess the National Institute of Standards and Technology  has weighed in on the topic to settle it once and for all.

The explosive growth of data is one of the top challenges of every data center faces today. Keeping this in mind,  it becomes very important to understand the 'cloud' storage models which can help alleviate some of these problems while delivering storage with pre-defined SLAs.

This article does  a great job explaining Storage-as-a-Service,  what it is and what its not. Storage-as-a-Service gives you the benefits of having an internal service with automated, pooled storage within a private data center.

To understand Storage-as-a-Service read the blog:
