To maximize efficiency of current IT resources, organizations are virtualizing an increasing number of applications in the data center. There are many benefits from virtualization such as cost savings for power, cooling and space. However, not all IT organizations are comfortable with the risk involved when virtualizing business critical applications. There are several reasons for this. For example with basic VMware HA, customers do not have visibility into application availability and often issues must be resolved manually after being reported by people using the services that application provides. Current solutions around this either degrade performance or eliminate VMware functionality like vMotion and DRS, resulting in most customers not virtualizing their business critical applications. Symantec is now announcing ApplicationHA.
To solve the virtualization challenges, Symantec ApplicationHA leverages VMware HA’s app-awareness API to provide comprehensive application availability in VMware environments. Symantec ApplicationHA and VMware HA together protect against application failures, virtual machine and physical host failures. ApplicationHA enables customers to virtualize their business critical applications with confidence to provide SLAs comparable to physical environments.
ApplicationHA was developed in partnership with VMware and improves application awareness and control for business critical applications in VMware environments:
Together, Symantec and VMware work to help customers move business-critical applications into VMware virtual machines.
