We've completed the work to merge the existing Storage Management and Clustering & Replication communities into a single community area. Since Connect launched last March, a good number of the storage posts and content have spanned the two communities. We realize that this means that many of you have been tracking content from both areas, and hope that this improvement will make it easier and faster for you to find and share information about Storage and High Availability products.

So what's new?  A Storage & Clustering community that includes Storage Foundation, Storage Foundation for Windows, Cluster Server, Cluster Server One, CommandCentral, FileStore, Volume Replicator, and SFHA Management Tool product information, all in one community. How will this help you? You won't see duplicated content between the two communities. You won't have to go to two communities to view product forums. We will have technical expertise regarding Storage and High...

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.

Check out Going from ‘Fat’ to ‘Thin’ Isn’t an Automatic in the Virtual World Either, the latest blog on thin provisioning by DCIG lead analyst Jerome Wendt. He breaks down the various scenarios for when the benefits of thin provisioning are easily realized and when it is not so readily recognized, as there can be issues with deployment and utilization in certain circumstances. He discusses how Veritas Storage Foundation’s SmartMove feature can help larger enterprises maximize their thin provisioning investment.

Jerome Wendt is the President and Lead Analyst of DCIG Inc., an independent storage analyst and consulting firm. Since founding the company in 2006, Mr. Wendt has published extensively in data storage publications and journals covering all facets of storage.
