Data Insight Technology Overview

The management of unstructured data is a very large problem. We’ve learned through customer conversations and surveys that in many organizations, unstructured data – files like documents, email, reports, letters, research notes, IP, presentations – represents up to 80% of an organization’s data.  This file data can spread among many systems and departments and migrate among systems as the storage infrastructure has grown. As a result of the data migrations or data center consolidation projects, many of the files are labeled as being owned by “Administrators” which makes it difficult for IT to centrally establish who in the enterprise actually owns the data.

Identifying data owners is critical for a number of IT initiatives and lack of data owner identification is a barrier to large-scale remediation and business process. Symantec Data Insight monitors file usage and derives...

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...

The sixth annual Symantec Disaster Recovery Study demonstrates the challenges that data center managers have in managing disparate virtual, physical and cloud resources. These ever-changing resources add complexity for organizations protecting and recovering mission-critical applications and data. In fact, the data found virtual machines are not properly protected due to resource and other storage constraints that hamper backups.

Check out the 2010 Symantec Disaster Recovery Study.

PC-Ware Information Technologies AG

As PC-Ware Information Technologies AG works to fill the security, data protection, and storage and endpoint management needs of tens of thousands of global customers, it relies on a partnership with Symantec. The scope of the Symantec product line is a value-add when PC-WARE is selling its services. In addition, the Symantec strategy of moving toward suites of products improves efficiency for both customers and consultants. PC-WARE finds Symantec products so valuable that it’s currently deploying Altiris Client Management Suite, Altiris Server Management Suite, and Altiris Asset Management Solution across all 26 countries it operates in, and it’s waiting to deploy Windows 7 in some locations until it can do so through Altiris Client Management Suite.
