P5 Data Mover

P5 Archive add-on for policy-based moving and copying of archived data between tape, disk and cloud.

The P5 Data Mover is an extension for the P5 Archive module. It offers policy-based moving and copying of archived data between tape, cloud and disk storage. In general, when archiving with Archiware P5, data is moved from production storage to archive storage. Later, this archive storage can be managed with the P5 Data Mover. There are two options for this:

  • Moving: Data is moved from existing to new archive storage. After completion, all data is deleted on the original archive storage.
  • Copying: Data is copied to create redundancy on a new archive storage. The previous archive storage remains unchanged.

This new tiered storage concept allows data to be placed on different storage media according to its value, reuse and costs incurred. Data can easily be migrated or copied between storage tiers. A migration plan runs periodically and selects data according to a predefined age.


Browser-GUI improvements for large or complex installations

Thanks to improved database design, new query functions are possible that are particularly effective for very large P5 installations containing many objects.

For example, with installations containing several thousand LTO volumes, admin tasks in the browser are even quicker and more efficient than was previously possible.

Multi-factor authentication for added security

Two-factor authentication provides an added layer of security when logging in to Archiware P5.

The authentication code is delivered to the user by e-mail.


Media Hash List (MHL) checksum manifest of LTFS archived data

This feature allows to check that the source data has been saved and recovered without any alterations. It is available as an additional option of the LTFS External Volume Pool Configuration.


Improved database design

  • The data model for the archive and backup indexes has been revised and simplified by removing tables and indexes that were necessary in the past for compatibility with older versions. This reduction in complexity provides greater security and scalability.

UNC path support

  • Easy access to network source and target storage is enabled via UNC path support.
