SIEGEN, Germany - April 25, 2018 - PRLog -- PoINT Software & Systems GmbH has announced the release of version 6.2 of the PoINT Storage Manager. This new release of the data and storage management software stands out in particular for its improved stability, ensuring greater availability of relocated and archived data. Version 6.2 is available now.

The PoINT Storage Manager allows users to use their available storage capacity more efficiently within a tiered storage architecture. To this end, the software transfers inactive data from costly primary storage (the Performance Tier) to more cost-effective storage systems (the Capacity or Archive tiers), where it is then archived. The solution's new functionality, enabling automatic failover on the next level of storage, offers improved stability: if the primary storage system fails, the automatic failover system preserves read access  to data with the replication device.

The PoINT Storage Manager 6.2 also includes a PoINT Secondary Access Server (PSAS). This is a kind of second PoINT Storage Manager server which is used if the primary PoINT Storage Manager server fails. The PoINT Secondary Access Server then enables read access to archived files, preserving users' access to data. This new function currently operates in combination with NetApp FAS systems; support for additional primary storage systems will follow in due course.

"In business-critical environments," said Thomas Thalmann, Managing Director at PoINT Software & Systems GmbH, "it is essential to guarantee data availability and accessibility, no matter where it is stored. The new functionality within PoINT Storage Manager 6.2 ensures significantly improved availability for relocated or archived data, even when servers or storage systems fail."
