FRAMINGHAM (03/17/2004) - NuView Inc. this week released a software package that lets systems administrators manage the lifecycle of the data on their Network Appliance file servers.
File Lifecycle Manager (FLM) lets users manage data through policies that allow data to be moved among Network Appliance file servers and the less-expensive NearStore appliance.
File lifecycle management involves a proactvie approach to managing files from their creation to their disposal. Through policies IT can migrate data, simulate operations and delete data. The software also includes auditing and management tools. It also allows file blocking, in which unwanted files such as MP3 files can not be created. Simulation lets IT perform what-if analyses and publish the results in report format.
Pricing depends on the model of Network Appliance file server and NearStore appliance installed. The software is available now.
