PoINT Storage Manager - Archive Edition: facing data growth effectively

By this new and easy to use edition primary storage can be employed more efficiently by archiving inactive data

The Archive Edition of PoINT Storage Manager is available from now on. By this new and easy to use edition primary storage can be employed more efficiently by archiving inactive data to secondary storage systems. Thus the higher archiving requirements are fulfilled and at the same time high investment costs can be avoided. By supporting versatile storage technologies the software manufacturer, PoINT Software & Systems GmbH, ensures the independence from specific hardware manufacturers. In addition consistent usage of standards provides an investment protection.

The extreme growth of unstructured data leads to an increasing challenge for companies. Due to economical or corresponding technical reasons this cannot be solved by only extending primary storage systems. As an alternative companies are able to archive inactive data (so called cold data) and data to be archived to secondary storage systems especially designed for long-term archival by implementing PoINT Storage Manager - Archive Edition. The archiving process can be automated on basis of pre-defined policies or manually by a protected web client.

PoINT Storage Manager - Archive Edition offers three archiving methods: Copy Mode, Data Mover Mode and HSM Mode to archive files transparently to secondary storage. Access to archived files is possible at any time through standard operating system primitives.

Depending on different requirements multiple storage technologies, like hard disk, tape and optical, can be applied to use their particular strength optimally. There is no need for additional software as the PoINT Storage Manager - Archive Edition supports these storage technologies natively.

Furthermore by the Archive Edition of PoINT Storage Manager files can be replicated in an automated manner to storage systems of the same or a different storage technology.
