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.

Building great products is never an accident. Often the difference between good and great products is not the coolest technology or the meanest performing gadget. It is its laser focus on addressing a pressing customer challenge as quickly as possible with the best of breed technologies.

VMware and Symantec have been working feverishly as one team in doing just that over the past few months in addressing a significant customer challenge around application-aware high availability.

Both companies had individually heard from their respective (and often overlapping) customers about the need for application level visibility, control, and high availability in VMware ecosystem. Lack of a good solution that addresses this need had been preventing customers from bringing virtualization benefits to business critical tier1 application – a significant challenge impacting customers’ virtualization initiatives.

It just took one 30 minute conference call between...

We're counting down to VMworld 2010! This is an exciting conference for Symantec to be part of this year, as we'll be unveiling some exciting new technology that extends VWare vCenter to provide application-level awareness and control for a wide range of mission-critical applications.

We've got lots of technical sessions to share information with our community, as well as a booth where you can drop by and see our products live in action and talk with product experts about the challenges of availability, storage, data protection, and security that virtualization addresses. We want to hear your stories as well, and find out what you're doing. Of course, a technology conference doesn't have to be all about technology, so we're throwing a party for our customers, have a game show planned, and of course will be giving away lots of cool prizes.

Here are just a few of the sessions, events and activities where you'll be sure to find us....
