QStar Archive Storage Manager (ASM)
With ASM, Disk Storage, RAID, Tape Libraries (LTFS), Object Storage, Cloud Storage (Public, Private or Hybrid), WORM storage and Optical Libraries are managed transparently across QStar Active Archive like a single point mounting file system or Windows folder.
Users see ordinary file shares and can easily search, find and retrieve data directly from the Active Archive.
Private and Hybrid Cloud
With Archive Storage Manager (ASM) all data stored within Tape Libraries, Object Storage, Cloud Storage (public, private or hybrid) or Optical Libraries is accessed via standard protocols like HTTP or S3 APIs from on–premise IT infrastructures, users and applications, and Cloud Storage resources transparently accessed in native mode through NFS and SMB (users see ordinary file shares).
