|Novell Dynamic File Services is an information life-cycle management technology from Novell that uses a policy-based approach for relocating data between two paths. Dynamic File Services provides two pair types to address your storage needs: standard pair and retention pair. The standard pair allows you to efficiently manage your storage across a pair of paths while giving users access to files on both. When users connect to a network share on the primary path, they see merged view of files. The retention pair allows you to keep data that is actively used on the primary path, and to move static data that might occasionally need to be accessed to a retention repository on the secondary path. Remote shares can reside on network attached storage (such as NetApp and EMC filers) and supported Windows server platforms. Cloud storage can be used as the secondary path on retention pairs.
