Eyeglass AnyCopy 

Overview:

AnyCopy enables high performance data movement workflows between clusters leveraging SyncIQ.  Industries that need secure high performance copy operations often look to 3rd party external tools to copy data between clusters.  This introduces cost, complexity and data security overhead to manage another security layer.

AnyCopy leverages the data security already in place within Isilon clusters at the SMB and ACL layer to provide an integrated single security layer for data.   Using role based access + existing data security, AnyCopy allows users (analyst, researcher, media editor) simplified data set copy.  Backup Admins can alos copy from snapshots into the same or different cluster and notify end users when data is restored.

  1. AnyCopy Use Cases and Features

    1. Multi cluster customers with workflow requirements to move data between clusters need robust end user copy tools

    2. Backup Recovery solution can now leverage high performance snapshot copy to the file system with an audit trail of what data was restored.

    3. Audit log records all target files copied with full copy history and diagnostic SyncIQ reports.

    4. Post copy file audit log tracks all copied files and records SyncIQ reports

    5. Avoid using SMB to copy data between sites with secured centralized, logged, high performance cfile transfer with SyncIQ

    6. Centralized Array based Copy between Isilons using SyncIQ 

    7. Active Directory enabled End User portal Secured by Isilon SMB share permissions

    8. Role Based Access for Admin, Power User, User

    9. Email and slack channel based copy job notification to end users

    10. Historical reporting on copy jobs

    11. Real-time monitoring of copy job throughput and progress

    12. Incremental copy and file block level replication for maximum efficiency 

    13. Future Release:

      1. Many to one content distribution copy mode - push content from a central cluster to main remote clusters with full logging and file copy audit logs.​
