  • 2. What we’re announcing… • New release and upgrade for Veritas Operations Manager and Storage Foundation HA – Help customers work smarter, not harder – Simplified day-to-day management of storage and server operations – Managed through Storage Foundation HA management console, Veritas Operations Manager • This helps customers – Eliminate manual processes – Improve storage utilization – Reduce risk Work Smarter Not Harder 2 2
  • 3. Data Center Complexity Leads to Wasted Resources and Reduced Availability ERP Transactions Web Email Inefficient resource silos Inability to track utilization  Manual processes to “keep things going” Ever more stringent SLAs Out of control storage costs  Storage used as a “buffer” to reduce application risk Limited visibility Limited skilled staff  Increased risk of downtime Costly human errors Burdensome change management Work Smarter Not Harder 3
  • 4. Work Smarter, Not Harder with Symantec I consider this ‘actionable This makes failover operations intelligence’ to prevent problems much simpler and reliable, before they occur. something that doesn’t take a Ph.D. to execute. Streamline Operations Optimize Storage Storage Foundation High Availability Veritas Operations Manager Prevent Downtime Work Smarter Not Harder 4
  • 5. Streamline Operations by reducing Storage Complexity • Multi-tier Server environment • Multiple tiers of storage – Replicated or not – Thin or not – Various RAID level – Diverse media types RAID 10 RAID 5 RAID 6 • Multiple storage vendors SSD FC SATA Work Smarter Not Harder 5
  • 6. Focus on the Service Level Matter, Not RAID Levels • You define the set of Storage Services available to your applications – Gold: EMC VMAX, Replicated, Thick RAID 10 on SSD – Silver: EMC VMAX, Replicated, Thin RAID 1 on FC – Bronze: HDS AMS, Thin RAID 6 on SATA GOLD SILVER BRONZE • Automatic identification of devices matching the Storage Services • Create and manage file systems and host volumes based on Storage Services • Automatic handling of the underlying SAN complexity Work Smarter Not Harder 6
  • 7. Optimize Storage by identifying and reclaiming underutilized storage Sample Reports  Storage Utilization. View storage waste and reallocate based on application needs License Deployment. Deployment reports based on your environment ensures compliance  Patches. Ensure that the most recent patches are in deployment Work Smarter Not Harder 7
  • 8. Prevent downtime and instantly detect failures • Detect failures, recover faster and use less resources. – Storage Foundation HA relies on OS based events to immediately react to resource failures. – Removes the need to poll resources and reduces system resource need by up to 95 percent. • Prevent downtime. – Non-disruptive testing of HA/DR configurations across physical and virtual – Coordinated start/stop of application resources simplifying maintenance and recovery in the event of an outage • Patch and maintain with confidence. – Simplified patching for existing installations and preparation for new installs Work Smarter Not Harder 8 8
  • 9. Work Smarter, Not Harder Key-Takeaways • Addressing complexity in the data center through automation • Improved storage utilization with increased visibility and ability to drive up disk usage • Reduced risk through coordinated start/stop and simplified patching & maintenance Work Smarter Not Harder 9 9
