Caminosoft announces primary file system deduplication

Caminosoft [Home]

SIMI VALLEY, Calif—January 5, 2012 –CaminoSoft Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of Active Archiving solutions for Microsoft Windows, NetApp and Novell NetWare/OES Linux, today announced that its Managed Server HSM™ software has been enhanced to provide primary file system deduplication.  “CaminoSoft’s Managed Server HSM product has focused on the relentless archival of inactive files to other tiers of storage in order to keep primary storage lean and backups running efficiently,” said Steve Crosson, CaminoSoft’s chief executive officer.  He continued, “One way to improve the effectiveness of our product is to predict which files are likely to become inactive and act on them sooner – and duplicate files are a perfect fit.” Crosson noted that the rising adoption of SSD technology and recent upturn in the cost of traditional disk storage has increased the need for improved primary storage management.  He added that unstructured data continues to dominate the growth in storage and Managed Server HSM, now with deduplication, is even better poised to ensure that only active file content remains in costly primary storage. “There are many deduplication products targeting backup storage.  Only a few focus on primary storage and, until now, none has combined deduplication with policy-based file archiving in the way we have.  Our goal is to maximize primary data storage reduction while minimizing impact on performance,” said Neil Murvin, CaminoSoft’s chief technology officer.  He added, “Early recognition and relocation of duplicate content from primary storage works toward that goal – and the benefits flow downstream in the reduction of backup time, bandwidth and media consumption.”CaminoSoft’s storage management solutions enable organizations to set up policies that automate the archival, recall and retention of inactive and duplicate files, performing these functions transparently from the standpoint of users. The software, which requires minimal IT intervention for installation and setup, supports file system archiving across an unlimited number of storage tiers. This allows inactive files to be relocated from Windows, NetApp (IBM N series) and Novell source servers to a variety of storage targets (from simple disk to industry-leading fixed content archival systems).  Policies are easily administered from a central Windows console. Managed Server HSM – Deduplication Edition is now available and shipping.  About CaminoSoft Technologies, Inc.:CaminoSoft is a developer and manufacturer of software solutions that address the storage management of vast quantities of data generated in a wide range of businesses and applications. The company’s Active Archiving solutions for Microsoft Windows, NetApp (and IBM N series), and Novell environments include comprehensive administrative policies that allow organizations to reclaim storage resources, improve operational efficiency, and achieve regulatory compliance.

Caminosoft [Home]

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif–February 11, 2008– CaminoSoft Corp. (OTC.BB:CMSFNews), ), a leading provider of Active Archive Management (ILM) solutions for Microsoft Windows 2000/2003, Novell NetWare and NetApp Filer environments, today announced that its Managed Server HSM™ software supports Apple Macintosh (Mac) environments.

Working in conjunction with Group Logic’s ExtremeZ-IP File Server software, which adds Mac client file sharing (AppleShareIP) to Windows servers, CaminoSoft’s Managed Server HSM for Windows provides new policy-based, automated storage management and file archiving capabilities for popular Mac/Windows computing environments. CaminoSoft’s initial solutions have been deployed in EMC Centera-based environments.

Richard Krueger, vice president of marketing and alliances at CaminoSoft, said, “Mac desktops are heavily utilized in education, creative print media and research laboratory settings. Using Managed Server HSM software, now these organizations can readily set up policies to reclaim production storage resources for active file usage while transparently archiving inactive Macintosh files to their archival storage platform. We are pleased to be working closely with Group Logic and are encouraged by the enthusiastic customer responses to our Mac/Windows file archiving solution for EMC Centera.”

T. Reid Lewis, president of Group Logic, said, “Working together, Group Logic and CaminoSoft have delivered the first Macintosh-compatible HSM solution for Windows servers, empowering our customers to provide well understood and important business benefits equally to their Mac and Windows users on EMC, NetApp, IBM, HP and other storage platforms.”

Greg Harms, system administrator at Hillsdale College (Hillsdale, MI), said, “I am quite pleased with CaminoSoft Managed Server HSM’s ability to manage our Windows file servers and work with Group Logic’s ExtremeZ-IP File Server. Regardless of operating system, method of access, or file type, we are able to extend our centralized file storage to the EMC Centera for all of our users. While dual-forked Mac files are not as prevalent in today’s Mac OS X system, it’s those older files that we need to manage. CaminoSoft’s Managed Server HSM for Windows does so without complaint or prejudice.”

CaminoSoft has pioneered the development of certified, tiered storage solutions for the widest range of archival platforms in the storage industry, including EMC Centera, NetApp Filer, IBM Tivoli Storage Manager, DR550 and N series, Hitachi HCAP, HP RISS, and tape and optical disk libraries.

Caminosoft announces enhanced file system archiving software for oes linux servers

Caminosoft [Home]

LOS ANGELES, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)—August 31, 2010–CaminoSoft Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of Active Archiving solutions for Microsoft Windows 200X, Network Appliance (NetApp) and Novell NetWare environments, announced today the availability of new Managed Server HSM for OES-Linux.

CaminoSoft’s Managed Server HSM™ OES-Linux software delivers key file archiving advantages for organizations by:
Managing data storage in an automated, intelligent manner based on administrator-defined policies, reducing IT management overhead, manual intervention, and costly mistakes. Optimizing primary storage (e.g. expensive SAN storage) utilization by continually differentiating active production files from infrequently accessed reference files and archiving the latter to less-expensive storage, such as SATA disk storage and/or purpose-built archival platforms. Enabling backup solutions to focus on protecting production files and a significantly smaller amount of reference information for archived files, reducing the time required for backup. Shortening the time required to perform full server (disaster) recovery by restoring only production files and relevant reference information for archived files. Providing end-users with transparent access to all of their stored files, including original attributes and directory structures—without administrator involvement. According to Neil Murvin, Chief Technology Officer at CaminoSoft, “Managed Server HSM for OES Linux eases the transition to OES-Linux for our existing customers and offers new file system archiving alternatives to anyone utilizing OES-Linux to serve files to their users. For many of our existing customers, the benefits are two-fold: (1) NetWare volumes containing already-archived files can be converted ‘in-place’ allowing all previously archived files to remain archived during the transition and accessible from their OES-Linux servers after the transition; (2) middle-tier storage previously required by some archival storage platforms can be eliminated during the conversion by linking the file system directly to the archived files”.

Murvin continued, “For any organization utilizing OES-Linux as a file server, this product offers new options for file system archiving by providing policy-based file archival to storage platforms including EMC Centera, IBM Tivoli (TSM), HP IAP, tape libraries and a host of others.”

Caminosoft completes testing-of active archive software under ibm-system storage proven program

Caminosoft [Home]

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif–May 14, 2007 –CaminoSoft Corp. (OTC.BB:CMSFNews), ), a leading provider of Active Archiving solutions for Microsoft Windows 2000/2003, Novell NetWare and NetApp Filer environments, today announced that its Managed Server HSM™ – N series Edition has successfully completed interoperability testing with IBM® System Storage™ N series unified storage products and has been confirmed as IBM System Storage Proven™. The IBM System Storage Proven program builds on IBM’s already extensive interoperability efforts to develop and deliver products and solutions that work together with third-party products.

“The IBM System Storage Proven program enhances the value and credibility of our solution to the end user customer. Our participation in this program and successful completion of interoperability testing at the IBM Innovation Center for Business Partners demonstrate that CaminoSoft and IBM are each focused on and committed to customer satisfaction,” said Neil Murvin, CaminoSoft’s chief technology officer. “CaminoSoft’s policy-based software has historically provided the ability to archive files to an IBM N series target when configured as a lower tier in a storage hierarchy. With Managed Server HSM – N series Edition, customers can now also archive files from an N series source, configured as primary storage, to an unlimited number of storage tiers.”

Target environments can consist of a broad range of networked storage solutions: IBM general purpose storage arrays; an IBM N series unified compliance storage platform via CaminoSoft’s support of N series SnapLock®; and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager and IBM System Storage Archive Manager DR550 integration with CaminoSoft’s Managed Server HSM – Tivoli Edition, which has been previously confirmed as IBM Ready for Tivoli Software™.

Managed Server HSM – N series Edition runs on a Windows 2000/2003 server and provides true file system integration via IBM FPolicy® application programming interface. Key advantages for customers include: reclamation of N series unified storage space for active production file usage; dramatic reduction in the amount of time needed for backup (and recovery in the event of an outage); fast, efficient and transparent recall of archived files; and facilitation of compliance with corporate and industry regulations governing file retention and deletion. Multiple N series systems and Windows and NetWare servers are easily administered from a central Windows console. CaminoSoft’s white paper covering the N series edition can be accessed at http://www.caminosoft.com/solutions/managedns/.

The IBM System Storage Proven program supports the ability of independent software and hardware vendors to build high-quality solutions with the latest technology on leading storage platforms as well as reduce solution design time when multiple building blocks have already been pre-tested.

Managed Server HSM – N series Edition is now available and shipping.

Caminosoft enhances active archive management software to support network appliance network attached storage

Caminosoft [Home]

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif–October 2, 2006 –CaminoSoft Corp. (OTC.BB:CMSFNews) , CaminoSoft Corp. (OTC.BB: CMSF), a leading provider of Active Archive Management solutions for Microsoft Windows 2000/2003 and Novell NetWare & GroupWise environments, today announced that its Managed Server HSM™ software has been enhanced to support file archiving from network-attached storage (NAS) products offered by Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP).

“CaminoSoft’s Managed Server HSM for Windows 2000/2003 has historically provided the ability to archive files to a NetApp NAS target when configured as the last tier in a storage hierarchy. Our enhanced software now provides the ability to archive files from a NetApp NAS source, configured as primary storage, to secondary and/or tertiary storage tiers,” said Michael Skelton, CaminoSoft’s chief executive officer.
Skelton noted that the worldwide market for external disk storage systems was projected to grow from approximately $17.4 billion in 2005 to approximately $22.7 billion in 2010, according to estimates from International Data Corporation (IDC). A substantial portion of this storage growth is attributed to the retention of unstructured data and fixed content, comprised of files such as office documents, web pages, digital images, and audio and video information. Network Appliance’s industry-leading NAS solutions address this ever-increasing demand for storage and are installed in enterprises worldwide.

“Managed Server HSM for NetApp runs on a Windows 2000/2003 server and provides true file system integration via NetApp’s FPolicy® application programming interface. This results in key advantages for customers, including: fast, efficient recall of archived files; reclamation of NetApp NAS space for active production file usage; dramatic reduction in the amount of time needed for backup (and recovery in the event of an outage); and facilitation of compliance with corporate and industry regulations governing file retention and deletion,” said Neil Murvin, CaminoSoft’s chief technology officer.

CaminoSoft’s storage management solutions enable organizations to set up policies that automate the archival, recall and retention of files, performing these functions transparently from the standpoint of system users. The software, which requires minimal IT intervention for installation and set up, supports data archiving across an unlimited number of storage tiers. This allows inactive files to be archived from a NetApp NAS to other designated NetApp storage partitions, to external ATA/RAID subsystems, and—through CaminoSoft ‘special editions’—to industry-leading fixed content archival systems. Multiple NetApp ‘Filers’ are easily administered from a central Windows console. CaminoSoft plans to further enhance and certify its software in support of NetApp’s SnapLock® compliance storage platform.

Managed Server HSM for NetApp is now available and shipping.
