PoINT Storage Manager
The universal storage management solution optimizes your storage infrastructure.
Physical storage is a significant cost factor in the IT considering the continuously growing requirements regarding performance, availability and capacity. This applies for acquisition as well as for administration and operation of such systems. PoINT Storage Manager reduces cost by combining different storage systems in a multi tier storage architecture. In addition PoINT Storage Manager decreases backup and recovery times and thereby cuts down the corresponding cost by integrated replication and archiving functions. The replacement of obsolete storage systems, which is quite often expensive, as well as its integration into new storage systems (storage consolidation) is already an integral part of the “software only” solution. Therefore future migration cost can be reduced at this stage or even avoided.
