Storage developers and professionals around the globe gather at the SNIA (Storage Networking Industry Association) Storage Developer Conference, Santa Clara annually to discuss on latest technologies, tools and tactics that is needed in Data Storage and Management. Also, we all know staying current with the latest technology can amount to good use of our dollars and time. It is the 11th iteration of the conference and was a 4 day event this September which was attended by 480+ professionals from our industry.

In the article Commoditizing High Availability and Storage using Flexible Storage Sharing I described my first attempt to create a two node cluster based on Flexible Storage Sharing within Symantec Cluster File System and the nice results that I got. My next step was to increase the node count as I wanted to move to an architecture where a database will be running in each of the nodes. The first step here was to add a new node to the cluster.

Many times I get the question about how easy or difficult is to add a node to the cluster. This was a good opportunity to document what I did here. Our engineers at the Common Product Installer (CPI) group have done a great job over the years and now adding a node to the cluster can be done with a few easy steps.

The first thing to do is deploy the packages on the new server. There are several ways to do...

With the release of Symantec Storage Foundation 6.1, Symantec Cluster File System HA enables customers to take internal storage and "share" that storage across any node in the cluster with the Flexible Storage Sharing (FSS) feature. FSS drastically reduces the OPEX associated with setting up a multi-node environment while providing the same storage management and high availability functionality assocated with SFCFS, but across all-DAS infrastructures.

The advanced FSS technology when coupled with high peformance Solid-State Drives from Intel® combine to provide:

• 4X performance @ ~80% reduction in the cost of SAN

• 90%+ Oracle® Log Writer transactions at under 1 ms

• Full availability and redundancy of internal solid-state drives

See the attached whitepaper for more details on how Symantec and Intel can bring high performance and high availibility to an all-DAS environment through...

The pace of technological change and its complexity is challenging traditional business continuity paradigms.  What was once considered a ‘Best Practice’ in Business Continuity (BC) no longer serves the new digital-world and organizations can’t rely on these outdated processes to reach their future objectives.    These ‘best practices’, and the standards/guidelines which are based on these best practices are unsuitable for the modern technologically-dependent organization because they were intended to serve a different purpose within a vastly different business environment. Some might question or be puzzled by the notion that long-standing and widely-accepted best-practices could be unreliable, however, that really shouldn’t be so disturbing. After all, ‘Blood-Letting” was once a medical ‘best practice’; one that no so long ago lead to the death of our first US President.  It is time to modernize Business Continuity and align to the genuine...
