- Automatic provisioning of existing storage resources allows users to automate the creation of destination resources, eliminating any time-consuming manual efforts.
- Scheduling feature simplifies the project by providing IT managers with an intuitive user experience where jobs can be throttled based on network utilization without having to kick off tasks manually.
- Intelligent filters provide the ultimate in configuration flexibility and savings with the ability to "spring clean" any redundant or unwanted data as your organizations moves from old storage to new.
