Supported Platforms

Moonwalk is integrated with primary file systems to automate and intelligently manage the mobility of unstructured data to secondary tiers within the storage infrastructure.

File archiving is the most common use case for Moonwalk. Archive operations are transparent to users and applications. Original file attributes and security information remain intact, preserving the namespace.

Secondary storage/archive targets can be a mix of natively-supported file systems, NFS, CIFS/SMB, object stores and cloud services.

Administrators can define, allocate and optimize storage according to policies which reduce the total cost of ownership whilst ensuring that data remains safe and immediately accessible.
