Automate data management to mitigate risk. Micro Focus Storage Manager directory-enacted policies ensure that you’re always managing your data assets properly. Micro Focus Storage Manager handles data privacy, rights and access analysis, data disposition, and more through its policies.
Generate quick return on investment (ROI) by automating storage tasks. If you have a large or dynamic user population, Micro Focus Storage Manager can help you generate a substantial ROI. That's because it automatically performs provisioning, rights settings, renames, storage transfers, vaulting, disposition, and reassignments.
Implement a File Analysis plan. An objective of File Analysis is "taking action" to remediate challenges pertaining to data access and growth. Micro Focus Storage Manager, through automated policies and administrator-initiated Management Actions, remediates these and other Micro Focus storage management tasks.
Create policies to move, delete and distribute data. Controlling your data management costs starts with controlling data growth. Micro Focus Storage Manager policies can groom, archive and dispose of files, or distribute files for data load balancing.
Not just files associated with user and group storage. In addition to policies, Micro Focus Storage Manager “operations” can automatically copy, move, and groom any file based on type, age, last access, and more. Operations are ideal for archiving or deleting orphaned files and removing temp files.
Let user roles determine file and storage access. You establish the rules, Micro Focus Storage Manager enforces them. Set policies that control folders and dictate users’ access rights. Let Micro Focus Storage Manager implement the policies’ settings so that only authorized users can access potentially sensitive data.
Move data to Microsoft or our network platforms. With Micro Focus Storage Manager, migrating data from one server to another is a simple process. The Cross Empire Data Migration subsystem makes migrating from one Active Directory forest or domain to another, or even from an Open Enterprise Server (OES) server to a Microsoft server.
Extend your identity management system. Because Micro Focus Storage Manager uses the same directory as your identity management system (NetIQ® eDirectory or Microsoft Active Directory), Micro Focus Storage Manager can take user storage action when your identity management system takes user account action.
Create policies that grant and restrict access based on users’ roles.
This new feature demonstrates the value of Storage Manager by reporting on the actions it has taken over a period of time. In SMAdmin, data from the Work Log is presented in a pivot grid based on the parameters you choose.
Information on this page now graphically summarizes and enumerates details for the Engine, Event Monitor and Agents. You can easily specify what parameters are graphed over a selected number of days. Additionally, the event logging is now on a persistent basis.
Action Blocks allow the sharing of specific policy options between multiple policies. First introduced in version 5.0 with limited options, the capabilities have been expanded to include new Action Blocks for the Move Schedule and Target Path properties of policies.
