ZeXtras Powerstore HSM
- Manage your Zimbra volumes easily with ZeXtras Powerstore.
- Set and manage multiple HSM policies.
- Create and manage your Secondary Volumes on Amazon S3 buckets.
ZeXtras Powerstore Utilities
- Save precious disk space by deduplicating items in your Zimbra volumes.
- Obtain full control of your Zimbra volumes through the ZeXtras Powerstore CLI.
- Extend the scope of your searches in the Zimbra Web Client to attachment contents.
- This feature allows to move any mailbox to another mailboxd server belonging to the same infrastructure.
When starting an import or a restore with ZeXtras Backup the "Apply HSM Policy" option is available.
Enabling this option will force ZxPowerstore to apply the HSM policy for each mailbox ZeXtras Backup is done restoring, so while the restore itself will be completely done on the primary store, as soon as a mailbox is completely restored the proper data will be moved to the secondary store.
- Zimbra official guidelines for Filesystem Performance Tuning apply to ZxPowerStore too: Zimbra Performance Guidelines Filesystem
- We strongly advice against the use of network shares (or any high access latency solution) as your Zimbra primary store volume.
