Remote Storage Management (HSM)
Windows NT Server 5.0 will include support for Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM) via components from Eastman Software. HSM offers an option for customers who want to reduce online storage management costs. HSM delivers “infinite” storage view where files automatically migrate to most cost-effective location, from online disk, to a tape library for example. The file system maintains a reference to the file so that the user’s experience is that the file still resides on the online volume, and when accessed, the HSM system retrieves it from second tier storage automatically and transparently.
Windows NT Server 5.0 will include the following HSM features:
·      Seamless file migration and recall
·      Two tiers, supporting either optical, and tape as second tier
·      Great driver support for secondary storage devices using NTMS
·      NTMS and MMC integrated
·      Shell integration, and Windows NT 5.0 file system integration such as replication, quotas, content indexing
·      Migration/truncation/recall/ validation
·      Read without recall
·      Managing volumes to specified levels/settings
·      Recall notification
·      Integration with Windows NT job scheduler
·      Explorer property pages integration
·      Disk administration integration
·      Basic database recovery and backup
·      Media copies
For more infomation do a search on Microsofts website for info on HSM.
