Archive Storage Manager (ASM)
QStar Archive Storage Manager (ASM) manages a range of storage technologies such as Disk Array, Object Storage, Tape Libraries, Optical Disk Libraries, WORM and Cloud (private and hybrid) to form an efficient, safe and cost-effective Active Archive environment by virtualising differing storage technologies behind a file system. Users see ordinary file shares and can easily search, find and retrieve data directly from the archive.
Star Archive Storage Manager (ASM) creates an Active Archive environment as a standard NAS-based file system using NFS and SMB protocols or S3-based cloud APIs.
Disk Storage, RAID, Tape Libraries (LTFS), Object Storage, Cloud Storage (Public, Private or Hybrid), WORM storage and Optical Libraries are managed transparently across QStar Active Archive like a single point mounting file system or Windows folder.
Users see ordinary file shares and can easily search, find and retrieve data directly from the Active Archive.
