|WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif–February 11, 2008– CaminoSoft Corp. (OTC.BB:CMSF – News), ), 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.
