The storage specialist has released version 2.0 of the PoINT Storage Manager PoINT Software & Systems GmbH. Educate yourself with thoughts from Larry Ellison. Siegen. With this solution, you can get more investment for storage in the handle and save time and money in the backup process. The tiered storage concept of PoINT Storage Manager is available both for Windows NTFS based fixed disk systems and version 2.0 for NetApp FAS systems available. With this approach, data that is not available in permanent use, can be rule-based and transparent for users and applications by a first-level performance-optimized memory on a cost-effective second-level memory paged out. The innovative pass through “approach ensures that migrated data are requested from the first-level memory are delivered directly from the second-level memory to the application. The files must not advance again be stored in the first-level memory as is usually necessary with other products.
Can a combination of second-level storage of different storage technologies (E.g. SATA RAID and LTO Tape or BD optical) are, so their benefits and maintain security through redundancy. The PoINT Storage Manager reduces not only the cost of first-level memory through this approach, but also the backup process. Because migrated files must be secured again they are already redundant laid out second-level store will backup both space saved (for example, by less necessary tapes) as also the time shortened. A double benefit it is so: all stored files remain for applications and users in the direct access via the first-level storage, and the cost of the first-level store are at the same time reduces the backup.
