Collaboration with EMC as a technology partner has now also made it possible to support EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS). This means that ECS can also be used as an archive device within the PoINT Storage Manager, allowing secure, easy storage and archiving of inactive data within the system.
Users who rely on access to Amazon S3 for archiving and data storage can now use Signature Version 4 authentication thanks to the upgraded PoINT Connector for Amazon S3, increasing the range of possible Amazon S3 access points.
Version 5.2 of the PoINT Storage Manager also includes a number of improvements and new functions. For example, the archiving process is now faster than ever, as PoINT has significantly increased performance yet again when saving data for archiving. The path length limit for source data has also been increased, expanding the range of potential applications for the PoINT Storage Manager. The software is now also compatible with deduplicated NTFS volumes, meaning that the NTFS deduplication often used with Windows-based file servers can now also be used in combination with the PoINT TAFS Agent.
Another new feature allows the administrator to change the source system type within the interface, making primary storage migration quicker and easier than ever. The PoINT Storage Manager’s policy engine now also has a number of additional configurable criteria, increasing the software’s flexibility and range of applications once again.
