SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Attune Systems, Inc., a provider of enterprise-class file virtualization solutions, today announced the Maestro File Manager 2.5 with a new tiered, policy-based backup feature and forensic file system search capabilities across multi-vendor Windows file servers and NAS devices. The file virtualization solution from Attune allows organizations to significantly reduce their backup windows and increase overall data protection while reducing potential litigation risks. By leveraging Maestro’s global namespace to search for files owned by a user in a timely manner, system administrators can then archive them to a low-cost, highly available storage platform.

IT managers do not have to spend countless hours working on how to migrate and archive files. They can now search the live file system or any number of point-in-time copies for files based on multiple criteria such as file owner, size, type, name, as well as storage location or modify and access date. Once discovered, files can be easily copied, deleted, or moved to an archive location within the file system. Files can also be non-disruptively migrated from one storage tier to another, or backed up using various data backup software solutions.

“Maestro’s tiered backup solution will help me reduce my backup windows,” said Zak Khalil, MIS manager at Lessard Group, Inc. “Once I create storage tiers, I can use Maestro and my business policy to intelligently and automatically place files on the most beneficial tier. This is a simple way to accomplish the backup of all files across a multi-server global name space and on differing schedules, based on the importance to the business, and without worrying about the physical file location.”
