Executive Summary

Symantec conducted a survey on IT disaster recovery and high availability and customer responses revealed the following key aspects:

   - Business Continuity market opportunity exists for a distinct product that focuses on Disaster Recovery (DR) across multiple data center sites

   - Many customers have multivendor environments and there is a market need for standardized virtualization agnostic solutions (20% of respondents)

   - Per Virtual Machine and Per CPU licensing models constitute 90% of current DR product licensing schemes

 

Introduction

When a disaster, natural or otherwise impacts normal operations of a business, Disaster Recovery (DR) processes kick in to ensure that services remain available. The effectiveness of a plan is measured by how long it takes the business to recover the critical services (Recovery Time Objective or RTO) and how much data is lost in the...

The changing attitude toward virtualization in the data center from a recent Symantec sponsored survey, made one thing clear - data center professionals need to be able to do more with fewer resources.  This includes ensuring that applications are available and running smoothly, and keeping data protected – without cutting corners. 

To help customers accomplish their goals to do more with less, Symantec and Red Hat have worked closely over the past few years to give customers the confidence to achieve both the economics and flexibility of a Linux environment, while maintaining high service levels inside the data center.

More and more information is becoming readily available to companies and they are leveraging it to advance business and give consumers what they want. This practice known as “big data” has the potential to yield big opportunities, as well as its share of management headaches if not approached strategically. In the latest CIO Digest article “Big Data Without Big Headaches,” Symantec lays out three basic strategies that IT leaders should consider when leveraging big data. Getting the strategies right will enable companies to make effective decisions and realize the business value of big data. But get them wrong, you can end up with incomplete information and introduce a New Coke. With these data-driven strategies in place, companies like Asia Pacific Telecom, Telefonica de Espana, and Teradata have seen results in both financial and operational performance. Indeed, embracing big data doesn’t have to come with big headaches. To get more in-depth...

Having worked with Clustering for nearly fifteen years I believe this still qualifies me as  a total novice. It’s a bit like saying I work with cars, if I drive formula one car I won’t have much knowledge about stock car racing.  When we talk about cluster computing it normally refers to a number of computers working in some coordinated fashion. These will typically fall into two types,  shared disk and shared nothing.

Shared disk is the most recognized architecture and as the name would suggest simply means that all storage is available to all nodes in the cluster. Examples of this could be Oracle RAC or Storage Foundation Cluster Filesystem.  In both these instances a lock manager is required to manage to the coordinated access to the data. Shared disk architecture offers the highest levels of availability. Depending on the application it can often scale very badly in true parallel shared clusters. I often see this in Oracle RAC environments...
