User driven file tiering and archiving

By the new web-client of PoINT Storage Manager users are able to purge files independently and without support of their administrator to secondary and archive storage. This manual purging enables a more effective use of cost-intensive and often limited primary storage. Thus the data and storage management solution PoINT Storage Manager takes a step forward in comparison to other solutions as these only purge data according to pre-defined policies. This policy-driven purging often leads to sub-optimal workflows or involves risks, amongst others, if an immediate archiving is necessary for protecting data against manipulations. This kind of archiving cannot prevent that undesired changes are archived. Also if data has to be re-stored at the primary storage for fast access users cannot decide independently without their administrator. By the new web-client of PoINT Storage Manager users do not need to wait for assistance of their administrator they can decide themselves what file has to be purged at what time.
