With the ArchiverFS program, it is NTFS from the beginning to the end with no exclusive storage devices. It all comes together to offer a simple, reliable and highly cost -effective method for moving older files to 2nd tier storage such as NAS or older SAN. There is no other program for file server archiving software that does what this program can do. It is not required that there be any deployment of any other software to the user workstations or servers. There is a functionality that is already included in the Windows operating system.
This program allows the moving of old files from a UNC path by using a choice of conditions including file size, age, as well as type. The goal can be:
- CIFS share
- NAS device
- Cloud storage Amazon AWS
- Google Cloud
All that is needed is for the source and target volumes be NTFS formatted and sharing on the same network. Content can be managed and moved between them.
NTFS beginning to end
NTFS flat files and folders are used from beginning to end. There is no point for any files or metadata kept in a database or exclusive storage mechanism. This is the vital point as because of this it provides enormous scalability and makes this software currently able to handle up to 3.4 PetaBytes in size. This involves a single Datacenter edition that is installed using a tiny VM with only 4 vCPUs and 6GB of RAM.
