HP StorageWorks Scalable NAS and HP Scalable NAS File Serving Software With CommVault Data Archiver for Tiered Storage
Tiered storage management allows users to perform host-based, file-level data migration to tiered storage using a variety of network protocols for file movement. Every Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM) product on the market has different levels of dependencies on backup software, file systems and network protocols to facilitate this migration of data between tiers of storage. Satisfying these requirements using HP and CommVault software can significantly reduce cost and complexity to the HSM product installation. Key areas to consider when evaluating HSM products are the types of external media and how the product controls file migrations and recalls.
