Symantec integrate VCS to VMware's vCenter for DR/HA

“VMware is pleased to see Symantec deliver solutions like VCS for high availability that integrate with and complement the value of VMware virtualization for customers and reinforce the importance of a strong partner ecosystem that helps differentiate VMware virtualization,” said Shekar Ayyar, vice president of infrastructure alliances at VMware. “We look forward to continued collaboration with Symantec to enable support for VCS for VMware users and improve the experience for joint customers through initiatives such as the TSANet-based cooperative support agreement announced today.”


The collaborative support initiative between Symantec and VMware through TSANet delivers highly trained support expertise to solve customers’ high availability needs. Already a global member of TSANet, Symantec has now joined a cooperative support community for virtualization established by VMware earlier this year to promote collaboration to deliver mission-critical support for joint enterprise customers. Coordinated response, information exchange and reduced response times will improve the support experience for mutual customers.


Symantec’s VCS is a complementary solution for VMware environments that protects mission-critical applications from unplanned downtime. By taking an application-centric approach to HA/DR, VCS delivers comprehensive protection from failures regardless of where or how they occur. VCS is fully integrated with VMware vCenter, supplementing key VMware capabilities such as VMware VMotion™ for reducing planned downtime and Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) for active workload management.


Together, VCS and VMware Infrastructure give customers excellent protection from downtime, whether planned or unplanned. VCS is part of the VCS family of HA/DR solutions available for heterogeneous physical and virtual environments, delivering a common HA/DR platform across the modern data center.

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…
