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.

Finding ways to substantially cut costs and complexity in an active, vibrant Data Centre is not easy. CIO’s have spent years trimming here and there and, to many, further demand from the business to reduce CAPEX/OPEX can seem like asking the impossible.

Nonetheless, significant additional reductions and effeciencies can be made possible where companies take a broader look at the way IT serves the business in a broad context. Key to this approach is the bringing together of “IT” and “Business” people in a combined effort to rationalise applications, processes, core infrastructure and operations. I have recently facilitated “IT/Business Alignment” workshops, forced both sides of the house to work together productively and have been amazed as to the opportunities that drop out of this exercise.  Well managed and facilitated workshops are a great way from stakeholders to express ideas, test theory and find “1+1=3...

Good morning all,

     Finally was able to get away and login and start a blog.

     Our meeting to this point have been very informative and we get a lot of feed back from the group. But now going forward that we have the blog up and running maybe we can keep in touch better and be able to bounce questions off of each other for best practices and also just let others know what we are doing in our own Data Centers. 

     Merry Christmas to all have a safe holiday season and look forward to seeing you in 2010.

God Bless,
Ed
