Intelligent Disk Utilization - This intelligent tagging capability automates the creation of a tiered storage environment to support enterprise information lifecycle management (ILM) strategies, assigning frequently accessed data to faster, higher-quality media such as double-parity RAIDs or solid state disks (SSDs), while moving less frequently accessed data to slower disks in the cluster.

The solution features: disk management capabilities to facilitate the deployment of disk-based data protection, including native data deduplication, native disk backup and recovery capabilities, integration with intelligent disk appliances and VTLs, and heterogeneous snapshot and CDP management; protection for VMware environments; database and document-level recovery from the same backup in Microsoft SharePoint environments; an instant recovery feature for Microsoft Exchange environments; as well as a new lightweight SAN client.
Architectural enhancements such as migration of data directly between SAN intelligent disk, tape, and possibly optical disks (also known as intelligent RAID or server-less backup/recovery) are being developed and will offload significant I/O traffic from the servers creating a seamless single-level hierarchical storage system.
Traditionally, storage management intelligence has resided in server-based components, but with the rise of intelligent disk subsystems more and more of this management capability has migrated out to the storage resources.
Intelligent disk subsystems and intelligent tape subsystems will, together with software, enable outboard data movement to occur between disk and tape with minimal server intervention.
