Virtualization is everywhere, but IT organizations are still looking for ways to cut costs.  One way to do that, is to…  virtualize even more applications!  However, the easy stuff has been done.  File and print servers, cafeteria menus and the company picnic blog have been virtualized.  The next step is to move up the chain and virtualize business and mission critical applications.  But the risks of virtualization are still there.  How do I monitor and protect my application and business services in the event of a failure, or even a site wide disaster?  What happens to the performance or availability of my data when a path connecting a virtual machine to the storage fails?  These are the roadblocks that are preventing IT organizations from virtualizing more of their business critical services and applications.  The good news is Symantec can help!

Overview

A majority of an organization’s information is unstructured, and data growth is exploding. Despite best efforts and significant investments, IT lacks critical insights, such as who owns the data and how it’s being used. This leads to significant challenges in managing an organization’s data governance objectives – protecting important business data, achieving regulatory compliance and driving down costs and improving efficiency to manage this rapid data growth.

What is Data Insight?

Symantec Data Insight helps organizations improve data governance through data owner identification and visibility into data usage and access permissions. With these insights into the data, organizations are able to manage data growth in order to reduce costs, protect the data from security risks and manage compliance.

Data Management and Storage Optimization:
