Symantec ApplicationHA

Symantec ApplicationHA is an easy-to-use solution that provides high availability for business-critical applications through application visibility and control in VMware, Hyper-V, Solaris LDOM, IBM LPAR, and KVM environments. ApplicationHA is based on Symantec Cluster Server powered by industry-leading Veritas technology to provide a layer of unprecedented application protection in various virtual platforms.

Key Features

  • Fast recovery from application failures
  • Support for a wide range of hypervisors including VMware ESX, Microsoft Hyper-V, Solaris LDOM, IBM LPAR and KVM
  • Management and high availability of Virtual Business Services (VBS) for applications composed of multiple components running on different physical and virtual tiers
  • Integrated with Symantec Backup Exec providing recovery if a virtual machine becomes corrupt by restoring the last known good copy of the virtual machine image (Unlimited guest machine protection from a single Backup Exec license)
  • Fully compatible with key VMware features including VMwareHA, vMotion, DRS, Site Recovery Manager (SRM), VMware Fault Tolerance (FT) and key virtualization features such as Live Migration and Warm Migration on UNIX platforms
  • Fully compatible with key Hyper-V features like Live Migration and Hyper-V Replica
  • Simplified, centralized administration and management through integration with vSphere Client, vCenter and Veritas Operations Manager (VOM)
  • Simple setup through push-install from vSphere client, auto-discovery, and auto-configuration, and role based access control through vSphere client for VMware environments

Key Benefits

  • Take advantage of cost savings from virtualization by virtualizing business critical applications
  • Minimize downtime for applications in virtual machines without compromising on advanced virtualization features
  • Reduce downtime for business services that have components running across physical and virtual, multiple operating systems as well as Microsoft Failover Cluster
  • Recover critical application and the data through integration with Symantec Backup Exec
  • Choice of management console for ongoing management (vCenter for VMware or Veritas Operations Manager for other virtual platforms)
  • Easy to install and configure
