Sanbolic launches Simple Information Lifecycle Manager

SILM allows files or volumes to be migrated or copied from one volume to any other volume

By CBR Staff Writer

Sanbolic, a developer of software storage services, has launched Simple Information Lifecycle Manager with support for industry-standard VSS providers and advanced scripting capability.

The company said that Simple Information Lifecycle Manager (SILM) supports both Microsoft NTFS and Sanbolic’s Melio Clustered File System.

The company also said that SILM allows files or volumes to be migrated or copied from one volume to any other volume the server has access to. It can also be used to invoke a VSS provider to create a snapshot of the data and then copy the data from the snapshot.

According to the company, SILM’s policy management features allow administrators to manage data based on customer-definable security and access policies. Users can configure SILM to automatically execute granular policies for capturing snapshots, making copies of files, as well as migrating data to appropriate types of storage based on file type, user, or access profile. SILM now includes scripting capability to provide additional flexibility in defining storage migration and protection policies.

Sanbolic’s Melio file system and LaScala volume manager enable end users to aggregate multiple storage arrays into a centrally-managed pool of storage and provide multiple Windows workstations or servers with concurrent read and write access to data over Fibre Channel or iSCSI connections. SILM is effective as an Information Lifecycle Manager tool with the clustered file system allowing all servers access to all logical unit numbers.
