EV10 Tiered Storage questions
We are looking to deploy EV10 within the next few months, but I'm trying to get a better understanding of how the storage works.
We want to deploy a tiered storage model, using fast storage for indexes and new data, with mail migrating to slower storage after a period, and eventually migrating to tape.
On this basis:
- In a multi-server environment, how does the server interact with the storage layer? Are there any concerns with file locks etc if one of the servers goes down?
- How does mail move between tiers? What service is responsible for this? What happens if this service fails?
- How does SIS affect this? Is it possible for a new piece of mail to match one that has already moved to tape? If so, how will EV address this?
Any documentation/process diagrams which can provide some insight on the above would be much appreciated.
