Symantec Bundles New Data Center SuiteBy Chris Preimesberger | Print
Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
Altiris management platform is the key connector for security and backup/recovery package.
Symantec has bundled a management software package that combines the
Big Three requirements of data center management into one product:
systems management, endpoint security and backup/recovery.
Using in a single management console, Symantec said June 23 that it has packaged Altiris Client Management Suite 6, Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0, and Backup Exec System Recovery 8 Desktop Edition into a new product called Endpoint Management Suite 1.0.
The suite also includes the Altiris platform and configuration management database. The Endpoint Management Suite consists of an open standards architecture originally developed by Altiris and that came to Symantec in April 2007 when it acquired the company. Because of its open APIs (application programming interfaces), the EMS can serve as a base platform for future generations of Symantec data center software.
