Virtualization is the current buzz word, and IT organizations are adopting virtualization technologies and platforms at an ever-increasing rate. But virtualization has many risks that need to be addressed. These include how organizations monitor and protect applications, data and business services in the event of a failure.

To address this, Symantec today is announcing the latest version of Veritas Cluster Server. This new version of Veritas Cluster Server introduces capabilities for high availability and disaster recovery that IT organizations require for their virtual environment. The new solution will provide automatic application failover between virtual machines ensuring fast recovery in response to a wide range of failures including logical failures (for example operating system corruption) that render a virtual machine unusable.

Not only do we monitor applications running...

Before virtualizing mission-critical applications, enterprises must be confident their virtualization solution provides visibility, availability, failover and load balancing. In VMware environments, these advanced features haven't been available with VMware native multi-pathing tool. The new Dynamic Multi-Pathing for VMware offers the flexibility of multi-pathing to any VMware guest VM, and supports nearly 70% of storage arrays.

We're pleased to announce the general availability of Veritas Dynamic Multi-Pathing for VMware.

Veritas™ Dynamic Multi-Pathing for VMware from Symantec helps you manage virtualized I/O paths through multiple algorithms and intelligent load balancing from inside the VMware environment. This deep visibility and advanced multi-pathing provides the availability and resiliency needed to confidently virtualize mission-critical applications Storage I/O performance and availability for VMware ESX attached storage improves through intelligent algorithms and load balancing for faster throughput. It increases virtual machine and application availability by rerouting I/Os to other available data paths in the event of a storage path failure and automatically restores failed paths that become healthy.

Additionally, Dynamic Multi-Pathing for VMware integrates into VMware vCenter to provide administrative and monitoring capability within the VMware environment, as well as...

As IT organizations continue to rapidly deploy virtualization, ensuring availability of applications in their virtual environments is critical. Since its initial launch last year, Symantec ApplicationHA helped numerous customers quickly and automatically recover from a wide range of application and infrastructure failures inside virtual machines.   

Symantec recently announced the latest release of Symantec ApplicationHA 6.0 for Windows. This release includes integration of Symantec ApplicationHA with Symantec Backup Exec which takes application availability to a new  level by providing another level of remediation to recover from failures in VMware virtual environments. This new feature provides virtual machine image restoration as a possible remediation mechanism if application restart and virtual machine restart both fail in recovering an application. In the event of a corrupt virtual machine or OS image, Symantec ApplicationHA coordinates with...
