Novell Dynamic File Services
Move Less Active Files to Less Expensive Storage
Novell Dynamic File Services optimizes the use of storage resources by transparently directing less valuable and infrequently accessed files to less expensive storage devices. This helps you lower hardware, power and cooling costs, and streamline backup processes without impacting the end user.
Get Transparent Tiered Storage
Novell Dynamic File Services features automated policies to identify unstructured files, and relocate them to lower-cost storage devices.
Offload Stale Data Automatically
Novell Dynamic File Services automatically offloads stale data to less-expensive storage devices, based on policies you set.
Establish Flexible Policies
Novell Dynamic File Services allows you to set policy criteria based on the last time a file was accessed, the last time a file was modified, file size, file type and directory path. In addition, policy execution can be scheduled or on-demand.
Don't Disturb the Users
Novell Dynamic File Services supports the end-user experience by automatically presenting a merged view of primary and secondary storage.
Customize your Backup Processes
With Dynamic File Services, you can maintain separate backup/restore policies and procedures for your different physical storage tiers (e.g. primary storage vs. secondary storage).
