Space Management moves inactive data to reclaim online disk space for important active data. This Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM) software extends your local disk space by automating the movement of seldom-used files to and from less expensive tiers of storage. Spectrum Protect has two products that integrate space management. TSM for Space Management (UNIX) and TSM HSM for Windows.

Here are three videos on HSM:

  • High-level introduction to TSM Space Management (presentation)
  • TSM HSM for Windows (demo)
  • Spectrum Protect for Space Management with Spectrum Scale (HSM on Linux with GPFS)
