Manages your data assets
Automate data management to mitigate risk. Micro Focus Storage Manager directory-enacted policies ensure that you’re always managing your data assets properly. Micro Focus Storage Manager handles data privacy, rights and access analysis, data disposition, and more through its policies.
Automates routine storage tasks
Generate quick return on investment (ROI) by automating storage tasks. If you have a large or dynamic user population, Micro Focus Storage Manager can help you generate a substantial ROI. That’s because it automatically performs provisioning, rights settings, renames, storage transfers, vaulting, disposition, and reassignments.
Addresses file analysis objectives
Implement a File Analysis plan. An objective of File Analysis is “taking action” to remediate challenges pertaining to data access and growth. Micro Focus Storage Manager, through automated policies and administrator-initiated Management Actions, remediates these and other Micro Focus storage management tasks.
Contains data growth
Create policies to move, delete and distribute data. Controlling your data management costs starts with controlling data growth. Micro Focus Storage Manager policies can groom, archive and dispose of files, or distribute files for data load balancing.
Controls data access
Let user roles determine file and storage access. You establish the rules, Micro Focus Storage Manager enforces them. Set policies that control folders and dictate users’ access rights. Let Micro Focus Storage Manager implement the policies’ settings so that only authorized users can access potentially sensitive data.
Makes data migrations easy
Move data to Microsoft or our network platforms. With Micro Focus Storage Manager, migrating data from one server to another is a simple process. The Cross Empire Data Migration subsystem makes migrating from an Open Enterprise Server (OES) server to a Microsoft server easy.
Enables file management in identity management systems
Extend your identity management system. Because Micro Focus Storage Manager uses the same directory as your identity management system (NetIQ® eDirectory or Microsoft Active Directory), Micro Focus Storage Manager can take user storage action when your identity management system takes user account action.
Establish and enforce role-based access
Create policies that grant and restrict access based on users’ roles. To manage storage for group members, Storage Manager lets you create directory-services-based group policies that grant access to network storage areas and lets you create personal folders in collaborative storage areas on the network.
