CloudTier Storage Tiering File System Filter Driver SDK

Storage Tiering Filter Driver SDK provides you a simple solution to develop the cloud archiving software, it allows you to integrate your existing on-premises applications with the remote cloud storage infrastructure in a seamless, secure, and transparent fashion.

The cloud tiering is a data storage technique which automatically moves data between high-cost on-premise storage and low-cost remote cloud storage, it provides a native cloud storage tier, it allows you to free up on-premise storage capacity, by moving out cooler data to the cloud storage, thereby reducing capital and operational expenditures.

By creating ILM (Information Lifecycle Manager) policy, a stub file will be created after the file was migrated to the cloud storage. A stub file looks and acts like a regular file, it has the same file attributes with the original physical file (file size, creation time, last write time, last access time). A stub file doesn't take the storage space for the file data, it only keeps the meta data of the file. When the stub file is accessed, the file data in the cloud storage will be transparently recalled to the stub file, you can rehydrate the stub file or just return the data to the application based on the recall policy.

CloudTier Cloud Connect provides a complete solution to transparently connect to Amazon S3 storage and Azure storage. CloudTier uses the cloud storage as second tier, it can automatically to move data between local and the cloud.
