Rocket Arkivio Autoexplore enables IT managers to collect detailed information about each device, volume, and file in a heterogeneous storage network, without requiring installation of server agents.

When combined with Rocket Arkivio professional services, the solution enables IT managers to implement a detailed storage audit that gathers critical information and produces in-depth reports about the data storage environment.

By identifying and migrating less frequently accessed data off primary storage, IT managers can reduce the time required for backup and disaster recovery.

Rocket Arkivio Autostor is an Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) software solution that effectively manages the explosive growth of unstructured data by integrating data and storage discovery, contextual classification, and automated management into one intelligent file system archiving solution.

The software collects and analyzes detailed information about storage usage and the criticality of data within its lifecycle in order to classify and prioritize data and storage resources.

Additionally, the solution enables administrators to create policies that automate data management (migration, move, copy, retention, and clean-up) to consolidate and optimize resources across a heterogeneous storage environment and improve operational efficiency.

Rocket Arkivio Automigrate is an agentless data migration tool that allows organizations to painlessly transition to a consolidated file services environment.

Rocket Arkivio Automigrate can migrate data from any CIFS- or NFS-based file server or NAS device.

  9. 9. Use Case Scenario Discover Manage Autoexplore You have a scenario:   running out of storage space (or storage utilisation is climbing and you don't know why)    Autostor Based on the results of the Autoexplore Assessment or as a Data Management Solution:  need to purchase more storage, but cannot budget for it at the moment. AutoExplore will quickly: Provide a comprehensive report on aged data that could be moved (i.e. old redundant records that need to be kept for x years..) to Tier 3 storage, or a cloud-based storage solution. Identify any files that are not "corebusiness” that could be moved off the primary array, thus extending the usable life of the array. Enable the infrastructure team to identify the ROI of a Storage Solution leveraging ARKIVIO® © ICT Business Consulting 2013 Transfer  AutoStor can be deployed with a set of policies to manage the data according to business decisions on the importance of the data. Through flexible policies, the data would automatically move between storage arrays, a cloud-based solution, or alternatively, cheaper Tier2/3 arrays, thus increasing performance and cost effectiveness on the primary array. Automigrate When it’s time to move the data onto another storage vendor, Automigrate will:   Transfer the data from an older SAN to a new Storage System Be the tool used as part of the overall storage sale and installation. AutoMigrate is used to seamlessly migrate data from the old array to the new array, WITHOUT impacting the users access to the data during the migration. Autostor is not in the data path, performance and user access is not impacted. No proprietary formats no customer lock in. Commercial in Confidence
  10. 10.
