- A copy is stored locally
- A copy can be saved to a fileserver or NAS
- A copy can be sent to a TSM server
The product does not require TSM and looks to solve a lot of problems with large fileservers. I’ll admit, I want this as soon as it comes available. The one problem I see is who is going to buy the disk required for this?
The second piece I have seen a need for some time is HSM for Windows. Well wait no longer, it’s here! IBM has just announced HSM for Windows. As with other products it allows you to migrate files off of a server when it reaches a certain age but provides for file level granularity, as the file is now a stub linked to the actual file in TSM storage. To learn more about both products you can read up on them here.
