As Symantec parther I had the opportunity to examine in depth the beneficts of adopting Veritas Cached ODM.

I tested it on differents landscapes with differents OS, DB sizes and workloads.

With an important support of DBAs in the analysis phase we enabled and configured it on a VLDB part of the billing process of a <55 "Fortune Global 500 2013" Company.

The archivments obtained were great, check the attached doc if you are interested in.

I hear it more and more from IT professionals, "our key 'X' application just can not go down."  As you can image, the "X" variable in the prior sentence usually stands for a key business service or application running in the data center.  It might be cusotmer or partner facing website such as an ordering or reservation system, or it might be a service that internal employees use on a regular basis to do their job and keep operations going.  Regardless, if the "X" is down, heavy costs are incurred and someone may be in trouble.  

If you are thinking about how to keep your business up and running, check out Symantec's new Business Continuity homepage called "Run Business Run."  If you have a business continuity or disaster recovery project on the table, you can use the information on this page to give you the key concepts to consider...

'Shared Nothing' architecture is not a new concept that is going to phase out the SAN based architecture. It’s just a precursor to the latter.

Here is a brief look at the evolution of the two architectures that would make this point obvious…

Storage Area Network

'Storage Area Network' is a dedicated network for providing access of block storage devices to a set of servers or hosts. Let’s see how this has evolved over the years...

Initially storage devices came bundled with the hosts and this posed challenges when the host had to undergo a hardware maintenance shutdown in order to add more storage. Also the number of storage devices that can be connected to the internal SCSI bus was limited. This brought in the concept of direct attached storage where the host and the storage were separate physical boxes connected by a cable (initially parallel SCSI and then Fibre Channel). The storage box was...

More and more information is becoming readily available to companies and they are leveraging it to advance business and give consumers what they want. This practice known as “big data” has the potential to yield big opportunities, as well as its share of management headaches if not approached strategically. In the latest CIO Digest article “Big Data Without Big Headaches,” Symantec lays out three basic strategies that IT leaders should consider when leveraging big data. Getting the strategies right will enable companies to make effective decisions and realize the business value of big data. But get them wrong, you can end up with incomplete information and introduce a New Coke. With these data-driven strategies in place, companies like Asia Pacific Telecom, Telefonica de Espana, and Teradata have seen results in both financial and operational performance. Indeed, embracing big data doesn’t have to come with big headaches. To get more in-depth...

SUNY’s Upstate Medical University is both a medical center and education institution. With a goal to improve its community through education, patient care, and research, the medical center’s 8,900 employees rely on an electronic medical record (EMR) system that helps manage and streamline patient records. With an EMR system in place, a solution that helps maintain an extremely high level of availability is imperative. To facilitate this, SUNY Upstate Medical University turned to Symantec. In the 16 months since deploying the high availability solution from Symantec, SUNY reports 99.9994% availability. Additional results include performing automated failover in less than one minute, reducing time to detect failure of a host system by up to 95 percent, and reducing time to apply operating system patches by up to 92 percent.

Windows 8 has been released... OK, so I'm not actually that excited about Windows 8 (I'm a Mac user and I like my screen sharp and finger print free).  But as usual it was accompanied by a new version of Microsoft's server OS - 2012 and that does excite me.
 
Yes 2012 has got a load of new functionality, but these 'cool new features' aren't the interesting bits, it's what's been in there for a while that's really exciting.  There are a few components in Windows 2012 that have hit version 3.0 and that's a big deal, one of those is Hyper-V.  What this really means is Microsoft's hypervisor platform has passed a milestone in maturity.  Typically when Microsoft brings a new technology to market it takes a few versions of fine tuning to really hit the mark.  During this time, some early adopters will use it for production workloads, but the majority of large enterprises will...
