Active Vault Policy

Vaulting of media is a process that moves media from a library to a vault that frees up library slots for additional media. Traditionally, vaulting is used for data archival purposes, and for enabling a library to manage more media than it can physically hold. On a StorNext managed system, vaulting can also lower the used capacity of the Storage Manager license.

Active Vault Policy is a StorNext feature that enables you to configure, and schedule automatic execution of custom vault policies for library media. The feature also helps you manage your Storage Manager license more pro-actively.

This section contains an overview of how StorNext Active Vault Policy works, the steps required to configure a vault, configure a vault policy, and usage tips for the feature.
