Seamless Tiered Storage
Permivault acts as a virtual tier of storage for archiving and protecting data. Permivault's File Migration Client (PVC) seamlessly integrates with your existing Windows environment, creating an archive that is online all the time.
Maximize Cost Savings by Removing Redundant Data The PVC maximizes capacity and cost savings by migrating inactive and redundant data from costly, high-performance file servers to your online archive. By consolidating and removing redundant data from Microsoft (MS) file servers, existing servers can be utilized for transactional data, minimizing additional hardware and media purchases.
Reduce Backup Window Data in a protected archive is no longer part of your backup set. Moving inactive data from transactional file servers to a Permivault cloud archive shortens the backup window and reduces recovery time when needed. This also minimizes network traffic during backup operations, lowering both operational and hardware expenses.
Integrated Archive The PVC integrates Permivault with dynamic data on MS file servers to provide complete, seamless tiered storage management. This non-intrusive addition to your data center unifies the benefits of high-performance server storage with cost-effective archives to maximize cost savings.
Automate Migration PVC simplifies data migration from physical servers to Permivault, taking advantage of its elastic scalability, ubiquitous accessibility and pay-as-you-need pricing structure.
Simplify Policy Management
Integrated Microsoft Console The PVC simplifies file management through integration with Microsoft's Management Console.
Migration and/or File Release The Microsoft Explorer plug-in enables manual migration, release or recall of archived files, giving flexibility to access any file should the need arise. File transfers are transparent to end-users, meaning that data is physically migrated, but readily accessible at all times.
Disk Management Based on disk system volume size, migrated files may remain on the server for rapid access until user-governed policies trigger their automatic release.
