Nearly all companies are experiencing an explosion in the demand for storage, driven particularly by space hungry applications like CAD, multimedia, computer graphics, document imaging, email and, last but not least, user-controlled directories. Meeting the demand for increased storage is only one aspect of this problem. Managing the data intelligently, growing the storage infrastructure cost-effectively and providing users with immediate access to all of their files are the real challenges.
CaminoSoft's Managed Server HSM - OES Linux Edition provides a straightforward, cost-effective solution for handling the complexities of Novell's Open Enterprise Server SUSE Linux data storage management. OES Linux Edition offers all of the features of CaminoSoft's standard Managed Server HSM, including support for multiple, off-the-shelf storage target devices. Whether used in a SAN or NAS environment, the combined storage options made available by the OES Linux Edition provide a storage hierarchy capable of virtually infinite storage growth with increased data availability and data retention - while leveraging your existing storage investment.
Like our standard Managed Server HSM solution, OES Linux Edition enables the administrator to configure policies and usage of the "virtual" Central Storage Pool and archive files residing in the OES environment that are infrequently accessed to the central pool. OES Linux Edition allows archiving of inactive files to a variety of target environments including JBOD, tape library, EMC Centera, IBM Tivoli, Archivas, Hitachi HCAP and gateway-enabled cloud storage. The policy-driven engine provides for "lights-out" operation while providing complete, transparent access by users to all of their data.
In addition to leveraging existing storage resources by archiving seldom accessed files, Centera Proven Edition enables administrators to increase their storage capacity without sacrificing performance and data availability. Combining Centera’s compliance features (WORM) with Centera Proven Edition’s ability to specify archived file longevity, regulatory requirements are easily satisfied when needed. Add to this Centera Proven Edition’s policy-based deletion capability and the result is a complete Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) solution.
OES Linux Edition provides a cost-effective solution for managing growing storage requirements and satisfying regulatory mandates for data retention. The policy-driven engine provides lower total cost of ownership by relocating seldom accessed files from OES storage systems to less expensive and/or special-purpose (WORM) devices. By reducing primary storage consumption, backup and server recovery processes shrink to a fraction of the time previously required.
