Data Management Software by IBM
IBM TotalStorage SAN File System
The IBM TotalStorage SAN File System (SFS) simplifies file and data management in your storage area network by consolidating file systems across UNIX®, Windows®, and Linux® servers. With SAN File System, files and file systems are viewed and managed as a centralized IT resource with a single point of administrative control. By providing a common SAN-wide file system, SFS can support secure, heterogeneous data sharing and centralized policy based storage management in an open environment.
SAN File System is designed to help you to achieve data lifecycle management efficiencies through policy-driven automation and tiered storage management. User-defined policies provide the ability to better match the cost of your storage resources to the value of your data.
SAN File System is also designed as a highly scalable solution supporting both very large files and very large numbers of files without the limitations normally associated with Network File System (NFS) or Common Internet File System (CIFS) implementations. The result:
- Reduced storage management costs
- Enhanced productivity
- Optimized storage resource utilization
- Simplified file and database management and improved administrator productivity through policy-based data management
