The new ServerWare Storage Management Foundation and ServerWare Automated Storage Manager products are integral part of Tandem's new suite of ServerWare software solutions aimed at extending Tandem's high levels of system availability and scalability into the Windows NT Server marketplace, the company said.
The ServerWare Storage Management Foundation works with Tandem's NonStop Kernel operating system and soon with Windows NT Server and supports both online and offline file relocation, archiving files to tape, and integration with the Tandem ServerWare database and transaction processing facilities.
The ServerWare Storage Management Foundation also manages all the data associated with a file and not just individual files. For example, SQL views associated with tables, the company said.
Building on ServerWare Storage Management Foundation's base, the ServerWare Automated Storage Manager provides rule-based horizontal as well as traditional vertical (hierarchical) storage management. Based on a common graphical user interface, ServerWare Automated Storage Manager automatically enforces an organization's storage policies, the company said.
The ServerWare Storage Management Foundation and ServerWare Automated Storage Manager will both be available in the first half of 1997 for Tandem Himalaya servers. Availability for Windows NT Server-based systems is targeted for the first half of 1998.
