Operations Manager

Simplified Storage Management and Application Availability

Veritas Operations Manager from Symantec is a centralized operationally focused tool that enhances the management of Storage Foundation, Cluster Server, Dynamic Multi-Pathing, and ApplicationHA across different application, server, virtualization, and storage platforms.

New Features of Version 6.0

New role based UI

  • Faster operations with customization of information presented based on logged in user’s role.
  • Quicker problem identification with actionable overview dashboards.
  • Reduced learning curve with a tree based hierarchical representation of assets and an intuitive navigation model.

SAN Fabric visibility for Cisco and Brocade

  • Minimize risk using the visibility into the path of a server to switch to storage array.
  • Improve port utilization by easily identifying switches with most unconfigured ports.

APIs for CMDB and Reporting

  • Easy integration with CMDB allows for seamless asset reporting.

Simplified Campus Cluster

  • Super simple and quick configuration reduces OPEX spend.
  • Eliminates the risks of misconfiguration, which potentially can lead to downtime.
  • No customization required, further reducing OPEX spend.

Improved Patch/Hotfix Reporting and Management

  • Reduce risk and potential downtime through more visible alerting to critical patches.
  • Simplify the patching expedience by coordinated install through VOM.

Key Features

  • Start/stop and configure fault propagation for multi-tier business applications as well as visualize and control applications running on heterogeneous OS platforms and multi-vendor virtualization technologies.
  • Record run book steps in an automated workflow plan. Plan steps allow for start/stop of Symantec Cluster Server and Symantec ApplicationHA managed applications and virtual business services and even provide hooks to tie execution of custom scripts.
  • Application to spindle visibility on physical and virtual environments with application dashboards and detailed array information.
  • Risk dashboard with real time monitoring and alerting, notifications, SNMP traps and tools to analyze issues and remediate.
  • Single pane of glass to monitor, manage and automate Symantec Storage Foundation and Cluster Server operations including compression, dynamic multi-pathing management, host storage provisioning, volume migration and file system auto-grow.
  • Reports and views on storage utilization, cluster activity, availability trends, host and array side I/O performance, thin reclamation recommendations, licensing, and patching.

Key Benefits

  • Mitigate risk and troubleshoot physical and virtual environments by analyzing risk conditions inside the virtual machine or server and indentifying all applications running on a virtualized server.
  • Run book automation for disaster recovery and server repurposing.
  • Centralize control and visibility at every level of the data center infrastructure from application to physical storage.
  • Ensure business service level availability of IT systems through proactive notification of risks and reduced frequency and duration of service disruptions for multi-tier business applications running on heterogeneous OS platforms and multi-vendor virtualization and storage technologies.
  • Optimize storage usage by analyzing storage allocation, subscriptions, and utilization.
  • Scale operations using consistent, error free workflows to administer file systems, volumes, multipathing and HA/DR setups and using one central console to manage multi-tier business applications.
  • Maintain compliance with standard configurations using templates and policy checks.
