HSM + SharePoint

  Asked By: Marla    Date: Mar 24    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1211

Have you guys ever worked with a solution of SharePoint combined to
any kind of HSM (Hierarchical Storage Management) technology? (maybe
SPPS can do that by itself).

I'd say you'd have to wait for Exchange to support HSM since everything in
SPPS is stored in an exchange information store. And as far as I know,
Exchange doesn't have that support.

However -- I just did a quick google search for "microsoft exchange hsm" and
the first hit is veritas stating that they work with exchange.


It's marketing of course :)

Now, how well that technology maps to sharepoint  and how it stores things in
the shadow folder and everything else that makes it more complex -- who
