Symantec Extends Reach of Storage Management Solutions to Customers Through NetApp Reseller Agreement

CUPERTINO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 05/16/06 -- Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ: SYMC) today announced an expansion of its partnership with Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP) to provide customers the ability to gain visibility and control over their data center storage infrastructure through Veritas CommandCentral Storage. Under the terms of the agreement, NetApp will co-brand and resell the Veritas CommandCentral Storage product family. NetApp selected Veritas CommandCentral Storage based on the product's comprehensive support for multi-vendor storage environments as well as Symantec's leadership in the data center. Additionally, Gartner has positioned CommandCentral Storage in the leaders quadrant of the 'Magic Quadrant for Combined Storage Resource Management and SAN Management Software, 4Q05' report.

"We value Symantec's leadership and strong position in the enterprise SRM and SAN management market," said Patrick Rogers, vice president of Products and Alliances Marketing at NetApp. "CommandCentral will extend NetApp heterogeneous SAN management capabilities and complement our Manageability Software family and unified storage systems. Adding Symantec's market-leading solution to the NetApp® product portfolio enhances our position as a leader in data center infrastructure."

Symantec Extends its Relationship with NetApp

Symantec has a long-standing relationship with NetApp in delivering solutions to customers with Veritas NetBackup, Veritas Storage Foundation, Veritas Cluster Server, and Enterprise Vault.

Enterprise customers around the world require end-to-end visibility into their environments, from the application layer through the entire infrastructure stack. CommandCentral Storage's unique and market-leading support for NetApp's unified storage systems and advanced technologies such as SnapMirror® and Snapshot(TM) provides insight and reporting capabilities both across the data center and down to the file level. Veritas CommandCentral Storage is the only product that provides a unified view both for SAN and NAS capabilities of NetApp filers. Additionally, CommandCentral Storage has consistently demonstrated support for the largest environments, including storage networks with 1,000 hosts and 50,000 LUNs.

"Veritas CommandCentral Storage is the market's leading independent SAN management and SRM solution," said Robert Soderbery, vice president of product management and alliances for Symantec's Data Center Management Group. "Users that deploy CommandCentral Storage gain visibility across their storage environments and deliver immediate returns to the business by better managing their storage resources. Our new relationship with NetApp brings together two of the true leaders in data center storage to provide customers with a powerful storage offering."

CommandCentral Positioned in Leaders Quadrant

Veritas CommandCentral Storage was positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the leaders quadrant of the 'Magic Quadrant for Combined Storage Resource Management and SAN Management Software, 4Q05' report. According to Gartner's report, the market is increasingly looking for solutions that include SAN management as part of an overall SRM suite. Thus, Gartner has merged SAN management software into the SRM Magic Quadrant. SRM software that includes SAN management is a mix of solutions that target end-to-end management of the storage infrastructure and those that focus on a single or limited set of functionality within the storage infrastructure.

"Managing the growing complexity of storage resources remains a challenge in data centers today. The market-leading solutions in Gartner's Magic Quadrant report have started to address this challenge more holistically," said Dave Russell, Research Director, Global Storage at Gartner. "A complete solution will not only scale to meet the growing complexity of networked storage environments, but also automate key components of the management and monitoring process."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
