Request for Opinion: Hierarchical Storage Management Vendors?

Post by E.R. » Tue, 16 Jun 1998 04:00:00

Mangelement *ahem* Management has decreed that they want some sort of HSM,
so that only 'important' files remain on the RAID system I have spec'ed

Not too hard, except that it will generally have to work over NFS and/or
SMB, and work with either a Solaris or IRIX server, and serve clients
running IRIX, Solaris, WinNT, Linux, and BSD/OS, in decending order
of importance.

Does anyone know of such beasts? Does anyone use such a beast?

Any input would be welcome.

1. Hierarchical Storage Management Software

I am looking for a software package that will provide Hierarchical
Storage Management for Solaris 2.5. Our Online storage is an EMC disk
barn, the second level storage will be a slower array of disks, and the
third level will be tape (most likely 8mm).  

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Please CC me via email when posting a reply.
