Symantec, a provider of infrastructure software, has announced that the New York Independent System Operator, which provides electricity to nearly 20 million New Yorkers, has standardized on Symantec software and services for data center automation, storage management and data protection.
New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) relies on Veritas Storage Foundation and Cluster Server to ensure the availability of its critical information and systems. In addition to increasing data center utilization and efficiency, NYISO has been able to bring applications to market six times faster since deploying Symantec software.
Mike DeSocio, supervisor of infrastructure support at NYISO, said: NYISO serves one of the world’s most important business hubs, so downtime in one of our data centers could have a profound financial impact. Symantec plays a vital role in our data center standardization and consolidation efforts, helping us minimize risk and exceed disaster recovery requirements, while increasing operational efficiency.
