Veritas Installation Assessment and Veritas Storage Foundation Health Check are the first two services immediately available, providing an alternative to traditional reactive operations models and enabling IT organizations to perform prioritized, preventative maintenance using the latest known good configurations, best practices and data center risks. Veritas Operations Services proactively manages the storage and server environment to deliver rapid time to value and expands the Symantec portfolio to help organizations secure and manage their information.
