FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Moonwalk have many accumulative financial benefits, perhaps the clearest is the how it extends the lifecycle of primary storage.
Once the agent is installed it will structure data on the both primary and secondary storage. You would set a policy that data not accessed for X period of time will be sent to secondary storage, with the understanding that because of snubbing technology and the structuring of the data, it can be recalled back to its original location on the primary storage.
With clients such as Stanford university, in excess of 50% of the data was able to be sent to secondary storage meaning more space is available for operation requirements. Primary storage is more expensive, and not only did it extend the life of primary storage, it made a saving.
Moonwalk is compatible with every major server solution, including (but not limited to) Windows Server, NetApp (Cluster-mode), NetApp (7-mode), OES Linux. The list of compatible secondary servers can be found here
Moonwalk has been designed to work and many different servers, by location and cloud based. If you have any specific questions, please feel free to reach out to a consultant who can walk you through the technical application of Moonwalk.
Moonwalk works as a data recovery tool. Both the agent in the secondary storage and the agent housed in the primary storage keep critical information on the data that gets moved between storage tiers. If one storage tier was to need replacing, Moonwalk is able restore all files and data into their original positions on the server.
