Symantec rejigs Veritas line-up

Kilroy not involved

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Symantec has done some wholesale rebundling and rebranding of the Veritas product portfoilio it acquired last year.

Symantec Data Centre Foundation pulls together Veritas Storage Foundation, Veritas Server Foundation and, crucially, Veritas' NetBackup. The flagship recovery software hasn't been part of an all-in package like this before.

Symantec Data Centre SVP Kris Hagerman wheezed: "[Data Centre Foundation] gives customers the best of both worlds -- the ability to standardize on a single infrastructure software platform across their entire data center, while leveraging product offerings that are each best-in-class."

The move is aimed at getting customers to standardise more of their data centre on Symantec software, and so increase sales.

The announcement blitz also includes Veritas Storage Foundation suite reaching its fifth incarnation, which Symantec says offers better virtualisation and simplicity for managers.

The "Foundation" brand is being slapped on the firm's suite of server tools too. Veritas Server Foundation features "Veritas Configuration Manager and Veritas Provisioning Manager complemented by new features in Veritas Cluster Server", apparently.®
