VERITAS Extends Linux Solutions to Intel Itanium 2-based Platforms

VERITAS Software Corporation has extended support of its storage management and clustering products to the Intel Itanium 2 processor-based platform on Red Hat Linux 3.0. With the availability of VERITAS Foundation Suite 2.2 and VERITAS Cluster Server 2.2 on Itanium architecture for Linux, VERITAS is increasing its commitment to making Linux enterprise-ready and extending its broad Linux platform support to both IA-32 and Itanium-based architectures. VERITAS OpForce software was the first VERITAS product to support Itanium architecture on Linux.

With a building block approach toward enabling utility computing, VERITAS delivers integrated software solutions that are designed to align IT with business needs. By extending enterprise-class file system, volume management, and clustering solutions to Itanium-based platforms on Linux, customers can embrace the cost advantages of Intel and Linux and enhance the manageability of their Itanium-based environments.

Benefits of deploying VERITAS software on Itanium architecture in Linux environments include:

  • Manageability and availability: VERITAS software on Itanium architecture helps reduce the risks and complexity associated with transitioning Linux into deployments with more high-profile enterprise requirements.
  • Cost savings: Customers can take advantage of the potential cost saving of Linux in Intel Itanium-based environments without compromising enterprise-level management functionality.
  • Ease of management: Linux administrators can use online, automated tools that greatly simplify the management of storage, clustering and servers across both 32-bit and 64-bit environments with a single user interface.

    VERITAS Foundation Suite 2.2 for Linux is available immediately with prices starting at $1,500 USD. VERITAS Cluster Server 2.2 is available immediately with prices starting at $1,995 USD.
