Inactive data intelligently and efficiently store WINS, 22 may 2013. PoINT Software & Systems GmbH has been now announced the availability of the new version 4.0 of their proven PoINT Storage Manager (PSM). Thus, companies can meet the challenges by data growth in the primary store, mainly caused by inactive data. The much advanced functionality of the new version solves the problem by file-based Storage Tiering. This inactive data are rule-based away from expensive primary storage, and outsourced while maintaining transparent access to cost-effective secondary storage or archived. Data growth impacted increasingly while simultaneously but the data after saving will often quickly become inactive”the primary storage in companies, Aindrias T. explains wall, Manager sales storage products from PoINT.
This means, data growth and data value behave in opposite directions, and that means that wasted more expensive space for little useful data is.” The solution to this is called tiered storage architecture”: a three-level tiering model consisting of can be realized with the PPP 4.0 from performance, capacity, and archives animal. These two memory systems can be now in the CAPA city animal and in the archives animal configure up to four storage systems. The new version provides automatic replication on both secondary storage levels. In particular in the connection with the parallel support of various storage technologies (cloud, disk, tape, optical), users can realize a media mix in their storage infrastructure and further minimize the risk of data loss. Support other storage systems, functionality is expanded the list of supported storage systems has been significantly extended in the new version of PSM. In terms of primary storage EMC Celerra and VNX added systems and NetApp vFiler configuration. At the secondary level of storage, systems are now supported by including crossroads, DELL, DISC, HIT, Qualstar, SUN StorageTek, and Tandberg.
Also the The PPP 4.0 file system functionality has been expanded significantly. Companies can now meet archiving obligations, without that this costly and complex DMS/ECM systems must be introduced. In addition to the previously supported compliant mode”, which has deliberately prevented changes in archived files, supports also a read/write mode the new release”. The file of the primary storage system behaves then also for archived files such as a familiar read/write file system. These archived files remain unchanged with its original content in the archive store. Changes are archived in the form of new versions of the file.
