I am interested in locating software, commercial or freed, which would assist
a company in managing Unix disk space. The types of things that would be best
would be :
integrated in such a way that changes to the operating system would not be
assistance in moving disk files which have no read access over a set period of
time onto another format, still transparently accessible by users.
movement of software from unix disks onto tape
management of said tapes for control and recovery purposes. In the IBM world
there are tape systems such as TMS which work very well in that environment.
Ability for a user to locate and initial recoveries of files with proper
Ability for a recovery to occur in a location OTHER than its backup spot.
reliable backup without single user or unmounting of file system.
identification of bad backups at the time of backups - perhaps even error
soft and hardcopy reporting of file movement, etc.
I would also be interested in hearing other areas of concern.
