EMC Corporation announced the new EMC Documentum Content Storage Services to help customers improve their information lifecycle management (ILM) strategies. Documentum Content Storage Services enables organizations to define and execute storage policies that automate the placement and movement of content across a tiered heterogeneous storage infrastructure. New content can be automatically placed on the optimal storage platform and migrated when the value of that content and related business needs change. The new offering supports all EMC storage platforms, as well as arrays from other vendors, including Hitachi, IBM, Hewlett Packard and Network Appliance. Using Documentum Content Storage Services, information can be allocated to and migrated across storage devices based on business policies that utilize standard and user-defined attributes, including content type, access control level, lifecycle state, sharing permissions, industry regulations or archiving requirements, as well as date last accessed, size, related transactions or related documents. Documentum Content Storage Services differs from hierarchical storage management (HSM) by providing allocation and migration of information based on the metadata and content services provided by the EMC Documentum ECM Platform. Documentum Content Storage Services can be utilized to complement and extend HSM solutions, and is immediately available. www.documentum.com, www.emc.com
