Amberg Engineering AG has looked for a solution to archive inactive data. According to an internal data analysis approximately 80% of the data volume was inactive. A solution had to be found for off-loading the primary storage and for using it more efficiently. It was important for the company that inactive data was - even after the purging process - still in transparent access for the users. By PoINT Storage Manager a two-tiered HSM architecture could be implemented fulfilling all company requirements.
