Symantec's take on Virtualization


And I'm sure Altiris too ought to play a role in this or not? Just wondering but interesting development anyways.


Symantec and Red Hat will also expand their existing engineering relationship by launching "Unix-style" joint phone support for mutual customers at no extra cost beyond current tech support subscription fees.

"This will fill a key gap in Linux (tech) support. It will be the kind of support that enterprise customers are accustomed to getting on Unix," maintained Laura Shepard, Symantec's product line manager, in an interview with LinuxPlanet.

Due for release in the April time frame, Symantec's storage solutions for RHEL 5 will include Veritas Storage Foundation, Cluster Server, and Net Backup.

But meanwhile, on the virtualization side, Symantec will expand upon its previous support for VMware virtualization by launching a beta implementation of Xen virtualization later this month in both Storage Foundation and its dynamic multi-pathing technology.
