VERITAS Storage Foundation provides a complete solution for heterogeneous online storage management. Based on the industry-leading VERITAS Volume Manager and VERITAS File System, it provides a standard set of integrated tools to centrally manage explosive data growth, maximize storage hardware investments, provide data protection, and adapt to changing business requirements. Unlike point solutions, Storage Foundation enables IT organizations to manage their storage infrastructure with one tool. With advanced features such as centralized storage management, online configuration and administration, Dynamic Storage Tiering, Dynamic Multi-pathing, data migration, and local and remote replication, Storage Foundation enables organizations to reduce operational costs and capital expenditures across the data center. VERITAS Storage Foundation enables administrators to improve storage utilization and capacity management across heterogeneous operating systems and storage hardware. Storage volumes and file systems can be dynamically grown or capacity reclaimed, and storage can be dynamically provisioned to new applications without any modifications required by the end user. Storage Foundation automates daily and repetitive storage tasks and performs them online, including RAID reconfiguration, defragmentation, file system resizing, and volume resizing. Storage Foundation enables storage virtualization across a heterogeneous storage infrastructure whether there are multiple volumes within a single server or volumes that span and are visible to multiple servers. This improves storage utilization and sets the stage to seamlessly move data between different operating systems and storage arrays and spread I/O across multiple paths to improve performance. VERITAS Storage Foundation provides data protection with copy service options that address both local and remote replication needs. With the FlashSnap feature, administrators can create point-in-time copies with minimal impact to applications and users. Point-in-time copies can be accessed from the same server or easily be imported to another host, enabling users to leverage storage hardware economics by taking advantage of the heterogeneous, tiered storage support offered by Storage Foundation. For mission-critical applications that require remote recovery sites, the VERITAS Volume Replicator Option by Symantec enables efficient replication of data over IP networks. This gives organizations an extremely flexible, high-performance alternative to traditional array-based replication architectures. Organizations can combine virtually any storage devices on any major operating system, providing a consistent, easy-to-manage high availability/disaster recovery solution throughout the data center. VERITAS Storage Foundation and High Availability Solutions are a group of products used for enterprise data management and protection, failover and high availability, and backup applications.
