The two companies work together to help customers manage mission-critical applications applicable to cloud and datacentre deployments
Security firm Symantec and Red Hat has extended their partnership to deliver applications that will help customers deploy enhanced private and hybrid clouds and create resilient datacentres.
The two companies work together to help customers manage mission-critical applications applicable to cloud and datacentre deployments through delivery open environment in terms of hardware, software and operating systems.
Joint applications from Symantec and Red Hat will provide automated off-premise disaster recovery, improved storage management for multi-operating system, multi-storage datacentres and cost-effective failover for Oracle databases.
The new applications will enhance Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Symantec storage and availability solutions to deliver enhanced availability while helping organisations deploy business-critical applications.
Symantec and Red Hat can automate global failover of multi-tiered applications to any disaster recovery (DR) site, all through Symantec’s Cluster Server technology on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).
Storage Foundation Dynamic Multi-Pathing running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux provides a uniform cross-platform application that simplifies the management across any OS and all storage platforms.
The uniform cross-platform application allows hardware to be exchanged without disruption and without the installation of new point tools through a single unified data management platform.
Storage Foundation Cluster File System and Cluster Server running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux provide fast Oracle database failover, enabling organisations to deploy cost-effective single-instance Oracle databases while achieving sub-minute failover times.
Cluster Server can orchestrate multi-tiered application failover to simplify the management of complex real-world application environments and achieve true business service resiliency.
This partnership will bring together engineering, marking and sales resources from the two companies.
