Red Hat and Symantec enable IT organizations to offer a highly scalable virtualization infrastructure for traditional and cloud-enabled applications while maintaining high levels of business continuity. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization provides an enterprise-quality virtualization platform built on the open-community development model. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is based on two major open source projects: Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) and oVirt.
It is a small form-factor, scalable, high performance hypervisor based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and provides the same security, performance and scalability that are built into Red Hat Enterprise Linux. SymantecTM Cluster Server, powered by Veritas, increases the business resiliency of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization by providing automated wide-area application failover that spans virtual, physical and multi-tier environments. Symantec and Red Hat collaborate to deliver an optimized failover solution.
This paper examines the advantages that the integration of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and Symantec Cluster Server provides to address application high availability and disaster recovery for virtualized environments.
