The dream team for compliant archiving: PoINT Storage Manager & NetApp SnapLock

Siegen. NetApp has certified the PoINT Storage Manager for the compliance software NetApp SnapLock with ONTAP 9.0. NetApp SnapLock enables secure, compliant and long-term data storage with WORM functionality on systems such as NetApp Nearline Storage. Working with the PoINT Storage Manager, users can efficiently archive rapidly rising amounts of inactive data, and thus saving primary storage without having to change any existing applications or established access processes.

NetApp SnapLock is a flexible WORM solution for compliant data storage. It allows users to create write- and delete-protected volumes on hard disk or flash based systems. This ensures that data cannot be modified (or even deleted) before a pre-specified date. The combination of PoINT Storage Manager and NetApp SnapLock makes it easy to implement compliance requirements for data that needs to be archived away from primary storage. The PoINT Connector enables optimal integration for the NetApp solution and its functions into the infrastructure, automating it and making it fully rules-based. The use of stubs and the PoINT Storage Manager’s “path through on read” function means that all archived data remains transparent and readable, with no need to restore files to the primary storage. Additional functions including versioning, replication, data protection and authentication control round out the range of services provided.
