Think about all the things you need to do in your data center to keep the business happy. Manage multi-vendor storage arrays in your SAN, introduce and manage new SSD/Flash arrays whether in server/ in SAN/ or as DAS, support increasing storage requests from multiple cost centers without approvals to buy new storage.. and that’s only on the storage side. What about having visibility across your physical and virtual environments, managing high availability and disaster recovery scenarios including failover and testing, and finally having the ability to create reports that you can feed back to business based on their needs?

Veritas Operations Manager provides a single standard interface for solutions under the Symantec Storage Foundation High Availability suite of products. With the latest 6.1 release, Veritas Operations Manager now includes the following for your ease of use:

Today, Symantec released Veritas Operations Manager (VOM) 6.0, which brings the organization a step closer in delivering on the vision of providing complete end-to-end business continuity across the data center.

Overview

Veritas Operations Manager is a centralized operationally focused tool that enhances the management of Storage Foundation, Dynamic Multi-Pathing, Cluster Server, and ApplicationHA across different application, server, virtualization, and storage platforms. In addition to providing a complete centralized management interface for those environments, VOM discovers a wealth of detail about the adjacent configuration, including visibility into storage array configuration, the SAN connectivity and fabrics, multi-vendor virtualization and server platforms, and applications, such as MS SQL Server and Oracle Databases.

By having a wide perspective on the configuration, VOM enables customers to:

  • Minimize risk by allowing...

A colleague tipped me to this blog post at the Netflix Tech Blog that I found both amusing and interesting. Some months back, I was talking about disaster recovery testing with a customer, and he used the phrase "chaos monkey" to describe all the things that can go wrong in the data center in the course of testing a DR plan. Little did I know that there was actually a chunk of code named Chaos Monkey written to make things go wrong on purpose.
 
The folks at Netflix developed Chaos Monkey to randomly disable instances of their production (yikes!) application to test the service's resilience against such failures. The engineers at Netflix will occasionally turn Chaos Monkey loose in their environment to make its mischief while the engineers monitor service availability.
 
Since the development of...

I speak with a lot of our customers, and a frequent topic of conversation is around virtualization. Just a few years ago, most I spoke with didn't have more than 20 to 30% of their applications virtualized. Now that figure is typically around 70% or higher, and most customers say their goal is to hit as close to 100% as they can. The common blocker to virtualizing, though, is concern over application availability.

It's for this reason that we developed our ApplicationHA solution a few years back to manage in-guest monitoring of applications and restart of the application in the event of a failure. More recently, we announced a new release of Veritas Cluster Server which allows users to create clusters of virtual machines, and failover an application to an already-running standby virtual machine.

Taneja Group has been watching the disaster recovery/business continuity space in the industry, and just recently...
