Symantec announced version 6.0 of the company’s storage management and high availability products. With this release, Symantec enables IT organizations 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. This release spans multiple products in Symantec’s portfolio including its flagship Veritas Storage Foundation 6.0, Veritas Cluster Server 6.0, and Veritas Operations Manager 4.1, all tightly integrated to help IT organizations move confidently to a private cloud architecture.

  • 11. Resilient, Elastic Storage • Delivers elastic resilient storage by enabling storage growth or contraction without disruption to the application • Reduces the storage footprint with built-in deduplication and compression • Automates administrator tasks and reduces impact to end-users with priority-based scheduling of storage operations • Builds accountability with storage chargebacks for business services across multi-vendor storage 11
  • 12. Reducing Storage Footprint with Compression Without Compression Feature Overview • Choose what to compress: files, directories, or the whole file system • Transparent to applications • Reduces replication and snapshot times Use Case With File Compression • Archival storage, File Server - ideal for long term storage and read-mostly workloads Example • 80,000 files, a mix of text and pictures from • Compression reduced storage needs by 70% 12
  • 13. Reducing Storage Footprint with Deduplication Without Deduplication Feature Overview • Enable deduplication per file system • Transparent to applications • Variable deduplication block size • No performance impact on writes Use Case With Deduplication • Virtual Machines storage Example • ~100 virtual server images, a mix between Windows and Linux • Deduplication reduced the storage footprint between 50-80% per VM 13
  • 14. Information to Action • Improve operations with a single pane of glass for reporting and remediation – Run a storage utilization report and reclaim storage with 1-click – Receive a thin pool shortage alert and automatically provision new storage without disruption – Meet SLAs with business service dependency mapping, incident alerts, and automatic recovery • Deploys services faster with automated provisioning of storage by tier of business service 14

  • 16. Virtualized and Cloud IT Models Require a New Cloud-Driven Pricing Model• With 6.0, we are introducing a new pricing model based on actual core usage: – Pay for the software you are using – Utilize a flexible model that meets your changing needs - growth or contraction – Simpler transfer process when virtualizing workloads on newer, faster, multi-core processors – Easier license management and inventory tracking 16
