Archiving Data to Sony PetaSite ODA Libraries
The integration of PoINT Storage Manager does not require changes to security controls or file system configuration. It uses file reparse technologies to retain read access from Primary Storage to data which has been moved to Secondary/Archive Storage. Clients and applications access data files transparently from the Archive Storage via a direct read mechanism, without restore back to Primary Storage.
Inactive and unstructured data can be archived from Primary Storage to less-expensive storage such as Sony PetaSite ODA Optical Libraries. Up to four Secondary/Archive targets can be defined for replicating copies of archived data onto multiple physical and Cloud storage devices.
PoINT Storage Manager connects directly to the Sony ODS-L30M Master Unit, and ODS-L60E and ODS-L100E Extension Units, and no additional software is required.
