Data movement without the overhead

For most of computer history, file storage worked in a very familiar way: you would have a giant silo of storage for your files, and you’d dump them into that silo until it was full. Then you’d get a bigger silo. And while this worked when files were smaller and fewer, now a new storage paradigm is emerging: tiered storage. And to tier effectively, you need a way to get your files from primary to secondary, and perhaps even tertiary storage.

This is why NTP Software VFM (formerly Precision Tiering) can help you today.

What is NTP Software VFM? It is an elegant, purpose-built, file data tiering solution. It allows administrators to control their tiering by granular, configurable policies, as well as for end user initiated tiering. It redefines the economics of data movement by being event- and policy-driven in real time, rather than requiring repeated scans of the entire file system, thus greatly helping to reduce storage-related costs.

  • Enables the use of a multitude of stub types
  • Provides the ability for stubless tiering with file access via the recovery portal
  • Tiers to and from all major platforms
  • Allows for tiering by policy, end user, or a combination or the two
  • Connects your primary, secondary, and beyond seamlessly

NTP Software VFM is able to do all of this because of NTP Software’s long history of specialization in the unique needs of file data. NTP Software VFM’s file metadata catalog collects not just the regular metadata of a file, but the file’s extended metadata, providing the most comprehensive way of quickly and securely searching for a file.

Features

USE OR ABUSE?

Not all file data is created equal. In fact, almost half of all new files are never touched again! Stop wasting valuable resources on inactive files.

EMPOWER YOUR USERS

More often than not, your users know whether they will need a file again. Let users decide if a file should be tiered.

TO STUB OR NOT TO STUB?

Stubs can provide an easy and transparent way for users to find archived files. They can also be a storage admin's worst nightmare.

PUT DATA IN THE RIGHT PLACE

Leverage an automated, policy driven tiering engine to put inactive files where they belong—out of your primary storage and onto a cheaper Tier 2.

NOW, NOT LATER

With Right-Click Data Movement™, your users can instantly tier large files—no need to wait for an arbitrary timer.

DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOU

With NTP Software VFM, you can choose from a variety of stubbing options—including none at all!
