This week Symantec is announcing Veritas Operations Manager 4.0 and Veritas Operations Manager Advanced. We’re really excited on the Storage and Availability Management team to deliver these new solutions that we believe address some of the key painpoints our customers are facing as they implement virtualization and cloud computing. In reality, these are the same challenges data center managers have been facing for years. What we want to do is help them deliver high service level times, prevent downtime so their businesses can be up and running and then ensure they’re operating with the highest levels of efficiency.

When you introduce new technology like virtualization or thin provisioning there’s always risk; and we want to help you get visibility and minimize that risk so these critical applications can remain online and perform their required functions. As you move to the private cloud there’s also the need to automate. IT has to deliver services...

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...

Veritas Dynamic Multi-Pathing for Windows (DMPW) adds additional fault tolerance to disk storage by making use of multiple paths between a server/host computer and a disk in a storage array. A path is a connection between the server/host computer and the storage array’s disks and consists of a host adapter and a SCSI bus connection to one or more SCSI disks or a fiber optic channel connected to a hub, switch, or array. Thus, multiple paths are made possible by connecting two or more host bus adapters with either SCSI or fiber optic cabling to the storage array. DMPW manages the multiple paths so that the data on each of the array’s disks is accessible to the host computer. If a path to a disk fails, Dynamic Multi-Pathing automatically transmits data to and from the disk over an alternate path.

The paths on an array are set up to work in two ways—either in Active/Active mode, which provides load balancing of the data between multiple paths, or in Active/...

What’s New in CommandCentral Storage 5.2?

  • Agentless discovery of hosts by running discovery scripts
    CommandCentral can now discover a remote host by running scripts that collect data from the host. This discovery feature does not require you to install any software on the host. The discovery provides end-to-end visibility from the file system to the spindle. Because an agent is not required, agent-less discovery eliminates agent deployment and maintenance and minimizes CPU and memory consumption.
  • Discovery of Storage Foundation hosts through the Unified Agent
    The Unified Agent is a part of Veritas Storage Foundation. It consists of the VRTSsfmh package, which collects information about a host that includes a Storage Foundation product. Wherever Storage Foundation is installed, CommandCentral can use the agent to discover information about the host. This feature lets you leverage the existing agents that you...
