Cloud Storage Archiving

Unstructured data is growing faster, consuming more space, and being retained longer than ever before

Novell Dynamic File Services enables you to manage your unstructured data with intelligent tiering in Microsoft Active Directory and Workgroup environments.

Dynamic File Services can help reduce storage infrastructure costs, save work hours, enhance existing investments in storage hardware and software, and improve retention compliance.

Archive data to Amazon S3, Box, CloudMe, or Dropbox, using our intelligent policy engine to identify unstructured data (files & folders) hosted on Microsoft network shares, including a variety of third-party Storage platforms from leading hardware vendors, including Dell, EMC, HP, and NetApp.

Dynamic File Services retention pairs allow you to keep data that is actively used On-Prem, and move static data that's only occasionally needed to a retention repository off site to the cloud. For example, the repository can store files that are not needed for everyday operations but must be retained for historical reference, or to comply with contractual or legal requirements.
