Symantec Corp., announced version 6.0 of the company’s storage management and high availability products.
With this release, Symantec enables IT organisations to build resilient private clouds by transforming their existing infrastructure. Organizations can manage entire business services end-to-end with built in resiliency, even if the business service is run across multiple virtualization technologies, operating systems, and storage platforms.

“IT architects appreciate the promise of the private cloud, but beneath the hype they are grappling with very real questions,” said Anthony Harrison, Solution Architect for Symantec MENA. “How do I transform my infrastructure to make it more agile? How do I give it the characteristics of a public cloud without compromising on availability and security?”
With Symantec, IT organisations can build their own resilient private clouds by tapping into the investments they have already made in their data center. With this release, organisations can:
Manage business services end-to-end across heterogeneous platforms
Deploy resilient, elastic storage for cloud workloads
Reduce the storage footprint through deduplication, compression and thin reclamation
Use a single pane of glass for intelligent reporting and non-disruptive remediation
“Much has changed in the industry in the five years since Symantec’s industry-leading storage management and high availability software Storage Foundation HA 5.0 was first released,” said Anthony Harrison, Solution Architect for Symantec MENA.
“We have retooled Storage Foundation and incorporated new innovations from across our product portfolio to help our customers build highly available, resilient private cloud environments out of the infrastructure they’ve already got. These innovations provide complete end-to-end visibility and complete control of their heterogeneous infrastructure.”
Manage availability of business services end-to-end across heterogeneous platforms with Veritas Cluster Server 6.0 and Symantec Application HA 6.0
Most business critical applications today are multi-tiered with web, application, middleware, and database layers sitting across multiple servers, across platforms, across physical and virtual environments and using different types of storage. Ensuring end-to-end availability of the business service is a challenge today. IT organisations have to deal with multiple tools, manual intervention, and coordination between different teams in the event of a downtime, whether planned or unplanned.
Deploy resilient, elastic storage for cloud workloads with Veritas Storage Foundation 6.0
With storage needs growing exponentially, IT organisations need a new approach to manage their environments in a cost-effect and flexible manner, while maintaining high levels of availability for their critical applications. This approach means having the ability to grow and shrink storage dynamically, keeping storage optimized in real time, and having the flexibility to choose the right type of storage from the right vendors. Additionally, storage administrators and managers need tools that help automate storage provisioning, usage-based charge backs, and reporting across data centers with heterogeneous storage environments.
Use a single pane of glass for intelligent reporting, remediation and management with Veritas Operations Manager 4.1
Veritas Operations Manager (VOM) provides a single management console across physical and virtual servers that helps customers visualize, analyze, and control business service availability and heterogeneous storage environments across data centers. IT organisations can provision storage using policy-based templates and implement chargeback based on real application storage utilization with Veritas Operations Manager Advanced. Not only can Veritas Operations Manager provide a true application to disk view of the entire storage infrastructure, it allows administrators to take immediate remedial action to optimize and scale storage utilisation with Veritas Storage Foundation.
Get the private cloud you want from the infrastructure you’ve got
With the introduction of these solutions, organisations can tie together existing assets—whether on physical or virtual systems, across OS and virtualisation platforms and with all major storage arrays—to build resiliency, scalability, and flexibility into their infrastructures. Symantec enables IT organisations to transform their existing infrastructure to get the benefits of a resilient private cloud.
