  • Cached Quick I/O can be turned on on a per file basis. The DBA’s guide outlines a procedure for determining which files experience the greatest gain by having Cached Quick I/O enabled. For example, due to its read-ahead algorithm, a customer may want to turn on Cached Quick I/O when running the monthly accounting reports. Cached Quick I/O will allow users to take advantage of full system memory without having to change to 64-bit operating systems.
  • VERITAS Cluster Server for NT is the culmination of over 7 years of HA experience, and provides the most mature HA feature set available on the NT platform. Clustered HA Solution: Allows seamless scalability from two to thirty-two servers in an active/active configuration meaning the cost of implementing HA becomes cheaper the more servers are added into the cluster. 1:1, Any:1 and 1:Any policy-based failover: VCS offers a variety of configurations from the traditional HA (1:1) active/active failover, multiple servers failing over to a dedicated standby server (N:1) and cascading failover from one machine, to another, to another in the event of multiple server failure (1:N). Fast Kernel-to-Kernel communication & failover: VCS has components like GAB/LLT which are embedded into the operating system, which means that communication between nodes for atomic cluster configuration and monitoring, as well as fast failover. Certified 3rd party support for SCSI, SAN and NAS storage: Through the VERITAS iLab, we are able to offer qualified support for many third party devices. Integrates with the Volume Manager & File System: Unique integration with the VERTIAS Foundation technologies, means that majority of causes of planned and unplanned downtime can be eliminated. VCS/Foundation integration features offered such as Import/Deport aids quick and clean failover, journalling understood, to enable fast recovery in the event of failure. Centralized Cluster Manager console….: Common management console across operating systems aiding skills transfer.
  • DB Edition runs on Solaris today and work is underway to release a version for HP. DB Edition 1.0 for Oracle works with Oracle 7.1 or later. If the customer is currently using OPS, it is probably best to walk away from trying to sell them DB Edition. DB Edition does not work with OPS (a cluster product). CFS and CVM would be required and they are currently not available. OPS requires specific HW configurations and is difficult to manage. So it the customer is considering OPS we can sell DB Edition against it.
