Resolution

This presentation was given at Collaborate2009 and covers how to create virtualized Oracle servers utilizing Solaris Zones and make them completely portable, even to another data center.

The solution is accomplished with the Solaris OS, Oracle RDBMS, and Symantec (Veritas) Storage Foundation HA/DR. The portable “Oracle zones” are storage and replication-method agnostic, and the database files are “wrapped” so they can even be transported to other *nix platforms for backup or migration purposes.

Symantec Super Session at VMworld 2009: Wednesday, September 2 at 10:00 AM

Of course I may be a little biased because I will be presenting, but there are a lot of reasons why you should make Symantec’s Super Session a priority during your VMworld 2009 experience

Steve Morton, Vice President of Product Marketing, and myself will present on strategies and best practice around pain points customers have faced during virtualization deployments

Steve has threatened to change the format on me, live on stage, and I am hoping this isn’t true. However, he is known to be a joker so I guess I will just have to wait and see what happens

Our goal is to share examples of how others have solved complex virtualization problems. You will see how a municipality in Florida was able to reduce a half-day virtual machine recovery to 15 minutes. This cut their backup time by 96% using Symantec solutions. Data protection and storage management...

Storage capacity management obviously drives CapEx expenditures. However, capacity management also ripples through the rest of storage infrastructure cost profile. Capacity impacts software license costs, maintenance costs as well as power/cooling and floor space costs. Thus, capacity management is the #1 thing that any IT organization can do for cost containment. Here is a related post with four steps that you can take to control capacity: storagenerve.com/2009/08/24/taming-the-storage-budget-beast/ .
