Symantec Storage Foundation

Symantec Storage Foundation powered by Veritas delivers storage Quality of Service (QoS) at the application level and maximizes your storage efficiency, availability and performance across operating systems, virtualization technologies, and storage hardware. Storage Foundation enables a flexible and agile infrastructure with features such as SmartIO and Flexible Storage Sharing while reducing storage costs with features such as deduplication, compression, thin provisioning, and storage tiering. Storage Foundation also provides a standard set of integrated tools from Veritas Operations Manager, a comprehensive management platform. With Storage Foundation, you can adopt Solid State Drive (SSD) technology and implement any changes to your storage infrastructure, including operating system or array migrations, without impacting application availability.

Data Sheets

IDC Executive Brief: Thin Provisioning Using Intelligent Storage Virtualization Technology for More Efficient Use of Storage Assets

IDC believes that thin provisioning will continue to be a valuable technology with significant benefits for enterprises. Learn what IDC recommends organizations look for when selecting a thin provisioning solution.

Maximize Storage Efficiency with NetApp Thin Provisioning and Symantec Thin Reclamation

Thin-provisioning technology provides the storage administrator a way to substantially reduce overallocating storage to users and manage the capacity based on usage instead of allocated size. But even with thin provisioning, there can be wasted storage if space from deleted blocks is not reclaimed. Combining thin-reclamation capabilities offered in Veritas Storage Foundation with NetApp FlexVol thin provisioning allows storage administrators to compound the efficiencies of thin provisioning and truly maximize storage utilization.

Optimize Thin Storage Utilization with Hitachi Dynamic Provisioning and Veritas Storage Foundation

As more and more people take advantage of Hitachi storage system-based thin storage, it is becoming clear that to get a fully optimized thin storage environment that delivers on the promise of waste elimination, there is a need for complementary functionality with a thin-aware host storage management stack, such as Veritas Storage Foundation. Hitachi and Symantec collaborated to ensure that the joint thin storage solution integrating Hitachi Dynamic Provisioning and Veritas Storage Foundation is stable, jointly tested and supported. This white paper outlines the joint solution now available to customers.

Enterprise Strategy Group - Symantec's Broad Approach to Thin Provisioning

Smaller amounts of well managed capacity can deliver the same value — and at a significantly lower cost — as larger amounts of poorly managed storage. In this white paper, Enterprise Strategy Group outlines the recommended approach to put your organization's wasted capacity back to work while reducing total capex and opex spend on storage.
