We’ve all heard the saying, “The devil is in the details.” Nowhere is this truer than it is when talking about the stubs used in tiering. Stubs require the cooperation of the storage hosts, the network, protocols, security, end-user applications, and client systems. What works for one may or may not work for another.
This informative whitepaper addresses all of the following issues:
How do you stub a file? When the stub is gone, how does an end-user find their tiered files?

Read this whitepaper to learn how the right stubbing mechanism can provide end-users and applications with a seamless and unchanged experience as your organization moves to realize the benefits and savings from tiering your files.
