PoINT Storage Manager
PoINT Storage Manager is an archival software which maintains a tiered storage architecture and migrates and archives inactive data to suitable secondary storage. This intelligent data and storage management software is independent of a specific technology or manufacturer and supports hard disk, tape, optical, cloud storage and object storage. Users can implement a hybrid cloud storage infrastructure using storage technologies optimally and optimizing the storage infrastructure.
PoINT Storage Manager
PoINT Storage Manager - Archive Edition is best suited for HSM archiving from Windows NTFS based storage systems. As archival storage HD NAS systems, optical libraries and tape loaders are supported. Also this edition is manufacturer independent since storage systems of all established manufacturer can be used.
PoINT Storage Manager
A storage migration is necessary when storage systems become obsolete or when support contracts are expiring. To ensure uninterruptible business operations and workflows during a storage system migration PoINT offers a Migration Edition of PoINT Storage Manager. The „old“ storage system can be changed against the „new“ system even during running operations, all within the scope of a unique file system migration.
PoINT Storage Manager amortized itself in the first year
“As a result, the PoINT Storage Manager does exactly what we want, transparently moving more than two-thirds of the total data off our primary storage units. No alternative came close, since the biggest advantage with PoINT Software is that the user doesn’t even notice all of this.” Gerd Schmidt, Head of Technology at the Hof local authority. Also advantageous: The introduction has already amortized itself in the first year with regard to operating, maintenance and investment costs alone.
World premiere: PoINT Archival Gateway
At the NetApp Insight 2018 in Las Vegas (October 22 - 24) and Barcelona (December 3 - 5) PoINT presents the new software PoINT Archival Gateway (PAG) for the first time. The high performance and high scalable solution store huge amounts of data through a standardized REST S3 interface on mass storage systems like tape and optical libraries, e.g. for the efficient data offload and protection of NetApp StorageGRID Webscale. PoINT Archival Gateway is the perfect solution for Big Data Storage.
In addition, PoINT presents the new version 6.3 of the established solution PoINT Storage Manager which provides automatic and policy-based migration and archiving of data from primary storage systems (e.g. NetApp FAS). Thereby the new Web Client allows access to archived data independent from the operating system.
As certified NetApp partner, we would like to advise you in detail on the NetApp Insight.
Use PoINT Archival Gateway to transfer data from S3 to tape
The PoINT Archival Gateway (PAG) software solution receives large volumes of data from S3-compatible systems and applications and stores it on tape and optical systems with high-performance. This software product is designed to manage hundreds of petabytes of data. At the same time it`s made for protecting these data against manipulation and inadvertent deletion using retention management and WORM functionality. Archived data are protected within using user-specified time constraints for making it easy to meet industry-specific compliance guidelines. Performance levels are also outstanding: the solution is capable of reading and writing over one petabyte per day.
3-2-1 backup strategie
Safe means safe. The “3-2-1 rule” says that companies should always keep three copies of all data on two different media systems, with one copy held externally. The PoINT Archival Gateway lets you implement exactly this strategy, as the software converts from one medium to another (including removable media for off-site storage) when copying from systems such as NAS drives or object storage systems to tape or optical drives.
Digitization for public services
Farewell paper archives; hello archiving software. Now that the German government has agreed on its “Digitale Verwaltung 2020” (“Digital Administration 2020”) program, public authorities need to make a few changes. The first step is to set up the technical framework required for e-binders and digital archives. Step two is to answer one question: what to do with your existing piles of data, and in particular the inactive data you still need to keep? PoINT Storage Manager offers public authorities the solution: rules-based archiving with transparent read access. This secure archiving software fully meets compliance requirements and data protection guidelines.
