ArchiveManager : Tiered Storage Data Archiving Without Limits
Data and information form the capital of any company. Making these available when required is the task of the IT department. And this makes efficient archiving absolutely essential. The ArchiveManager is a tiered storage, HSM and archiving solution which integrates seamlessly into an existing Windows or Linux system environment.
The Central Advantages of the ArchiveManager
Whether it be a medium-sized company or a large concern, the ArchiveManager is freely scalable as of 1 terabyte and up to an archive capacity of several petabytes.
The ArchiveManager allows you to use varying hardware components from all of the major manufacturers as performance disks, archive disks or as LTO-based tape archives.
Existing RAID systems, for example, in a SAN or backup LTO library, can also be used as disk and tape libraries.
The ArchiveManager uses CIFS or NFS to communicate with Windows and Unix servers. An own, proprietary API is thus not necessary.
The ArchiveManager guarantees the compatibility of existing and future archiving products from independent software manufacturers (ISV) for DMS, email, files, audio, video, PACS, engineering and other applications. The list of certified archive applications is constantly being expanded.
The ArchiveManager maintains the FS directory structure which means that all users are able to access all the data in exactly the same way as they have done previously.
Fast disk-based systems or magnetic tapes? The ArchiveManager makes both options freely available, and enables to you combine your archive media to create a tailored tiered storage solutions, regardless of the combination; disk/disk, disk/tape, tape/tape, disk/tape/disk, disk/tape/tape, etc.
With multiple copies, saved locally and/or remotely, you need not worry about your data. The metadata are stored in a redundant system in order to facilitate rapid disaster recovery should it be required.
The integrated WORM file system fulfils all compliance requirements like the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) and can also be complemented by unchangeable LTO WORM tapes.
BILLIONS OF FILES
Standard Windows or Linux based file systems have their natural limitations. The MillionBillionFileSystem (MBFS) provides you with a special product which eliminates these current limitations.
