Today, SNMS helps users reduce costs by giving them an automated way of matching data value to resource use, eliminating time-consuming routine storage management tasks, and reducing the exposure of unprotected data.
A solution like SNMS that unifies storage and supplies policy-based data management is a powerful tool for users striving to reduce costs and improve efficiencies," said Peter Gerr, analyst, Enterprise Storage Group.
Because it is based on a fully heterogeneous file system, the storage environment created by SNMS
supports multiple server platforms and operating systems, allowing applications designed for UNIX, Linux and Windows systems to share a common pool of automatically managed data.
Interoperability between Apple's Xsan and ADIC's SNMS provides a high-performance, SAN-based storage infrastructure designed to serve a wide range of businesses and industries that need to access, protect, and retain their large-scale digital assets over time.
For SNMS users, it means that they can now add Xsan-hosted applications to their unified storage environment.
