EMC Cloud Tiering Appliance VE

EMC Cloud Tiering Appliance VE optimizes network-attached storage (NAS) infrastructure by moving inactive data to lower-cost tiers of storage, reclaiming primary storage capacity. The software enables you to move files transparently to EMC archive storage… or to the cloud.

Key Features

EMC Cloud Tiering Appliance VE runs on a VMware ESX or ESXi server.

  • Reduce CapEx: Move inactive files from a source tier to a target tier of storage to reclaim primary storage capacity and defer purchases of new systems.
  • Lower OpEx: Automate file movement across tiers and eliminate burden on storage administrators.
  • Reduce Backup Time: Remove stale files from primary storage to shorten backup processes.
