Mixed in with an array of other announcements today, storage system software vendor Veritas said it would release its high-end “Foundation Suite” for Linux. “The Foundation Suite, which long has existed for Unix servers, lets administrators more easily manage how a server communicates with multiple storage devices.”

“The Foundation Suite costs $1,500 for a single-CPU server. FlashSnap, which lets a customer make rapid copies of a storage system and quickly backtrack to them if something goes wrong, is an extra option starting at $750.” “Meanwhile, Veritas competitor Legato on Tuesday said that it has released its NetWorker software to help run IBM's database software on Linux. The software enables online backup and restoration of DB2 or Informix databases.”
