V-Ray – The End of the Dark Ages of Virtualization


Published on

Symantec’s V-Ray technology allows organisations to see what’s inside virtual machines (VMs) so they can secure, protect, backup and recover both virtual and physical machines.Extensive virtualization is just a fact of life in IT today and it is no longer just on the periphery. With an increasing number of complex workloads wrapped up in VMs, customers of all sizes are challenged to maintain the same degree of security and protection from their virtual environments as they get from their physical environment whilst leveraging the benefits brought about by virtualization. Attaining the service levels for these business systems requires a high degree of visibility into virtual environments.
