New Release: Introducing Symantec ApplicationHA

New Release: Introducing Symantec ApplicationHA

We are very excited to announce that Symantec ApplicationHA is now available.  ApplicationHA leverages more than 12 years of development of Veritas Cluster Server to provide an application-monitoring package that runs inside a VMware guest operating system and fully integrates with VMware HA to provide virtual machine restart as needed to react to any application issues.

Combined together, this solution:

  • Enhances the availability of business-critical applications by providing a mechanism to detect and recover from application failures in VMware environments
  • Improves the manageability of virtualized applications by providing visibility of the application’s status and application control (that is, starting or stopping the application) through a single pane of glass — VMware vSphere Client, the user interface for vCenter Server 
  • Reduces operational complexity and TCO by eliminating the need for different operating system–based clustering products
  • Allows customers to enhance the availability of their applications without sacrificing the use of advanced VMware features such as vMotion and DRS

Supported vSphere ESX versions:

  • 4.1
  • 4.1i

Supported guest operating systems:

  • Red Hat® Enterprise Linux 5U4 (64-bit)
  • Windows® Server 2003, 2003 R2, 2008, 2008 R2 (64-bit)

Supported applications(Will be regularly updated to include new apps):

  • Windows®: SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 R2, Exchange 2010, IIS, Custom Applications
  • Linux®: Oracle®, SAP®, WebLogic, Custom Applications

I have escalated this for investigation.

Thanks for pointing this out Khaled Mashaykh, and to Michael for escalating. I've fixed the links in the page now. Also, we just published several segments from the VMworld supersession which may be of interest to you, and are also available from the Storage and Clustering videos section.

Best,

Kimberley

Thank you yes
