Here are some photos from my favorite moments at Vision. As a Connect community manager, Vision conference was a great chance for me to meet community members, put profile names to faces, and have the opportunity to meet Marianne, our Trusted Advisor, in person. Thanks to all of you who stopped by the Internet lounge and Connect booth to introduce yourselves. What a great week!

Anyone else have any stories or photos to share from the conference? If you missed the conference, check out the Vision community on Connect, as well.

I’ve never worked on an assembly line, but every time I picture it, I remember the hiliarious ILove Lucy episode where she’s eating chocolates off of a fast-moving conveyor belt. I’m always amazed that in the real world, a row of people (or machines), each doing some isolated job, can pop out a complex product at the end of the line, without creating chaos.

LG Display used to experience assembly-line glitches that were extremely expensive and caused significant downtime—a far cry from the I Love Lucy episode. The company manufactures display panels for electronics in a fully automated process, and glitches in its MES software would completely stop assembly, at a cost of up to US$24 million per incident. But since rolling out Symantec storage, clustering, and backup solutions, LG Display has kept its MES up 24x7.

Symantec Helping Customers "Get Thin" and "Stay Thin"
Enterprise customers continue to share the intense pressure they are under to better manage their existing resources and thereby cut down on storage spend. In an effort to empower these customers, Symantec recently announced enhancements to Veritas Storage Foundation that will help to alleviate some of the pain. Enterprises can now automate their storage optimization in thin environments with Symantec’s unique approach to leveraging thin provisioning technology.
Even more exciting are all the array vendors who support Symantec's approach to thin provisioning. Symantec partners 3PAR, Compellent, EMC, Fujitsu, Hitachi Data Systems, HP, IBM and NetApp are all on board and have recently added support for Symantec's industry standard Thin Reclamation API that...

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...

A friend of mine was lucky enough to backpack through Europe after college, and she wound up on the Italian island of Sardinia. Sardinia has some of Europe’s rockiest and most beautiful coastline, and also some of its oldest ruins, which go back at least 7,000 years.

Like all island dwellers, Sardinians know they must make the most of the resources they have, and that goes for Tiscali S.p.A., a telephone operator, ISP, and B2B services provider headquartered there. So when rapid growth started straining resources, Tiscali implemented Veritas Storage Foundation—and upped storage utilization to 80 percent.

Click here to read more about how Tiscali uses Symantec solutions to manage storage, provide high availability, and keep spam out of its network.
