NuView is shipping version 3.5 of its File Lifecycle Manager (FLM) package, a policy-based data administration tool for managing the lifecycles of file data on storage appliances from its OEM partner, Network Appliance (NetApp).
NuView’s FLM is one of the competitors in the emerging market for information lifecycle management solutions. FLM aims to reduce the total cost of storage ownership by enabling customers to categorize file data according to its business value in a tiered storage architecture, according to the Houston, Texas-based company.
The package’s major update is integration with NetApp’s SnapLock, which is designed to provide high-security data protection for NetApp storage appliances. By integrating with SnapLock, the latest release of FLM lets users implement disk-based tiered storage architectures across CIFS and NFS protocols while simplifying compliance with strict information retention and maintenance regulations, including SEC Rule 17a-4, HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, 21CFR Part 11, and DoD Directive 5015.2, according to a company statement.
Version 3.5 also gives administrators the ability to manage multiple FLM servers from a single, unified console.
