hierarchical storage management

Definitions

Electronics

  • The automatic transfer of information between storage media with different priorities. For example, the movement of data from a lower speed medium, such as an optical disk, to a hard disk when needed. This allows more data to be stored than if all was in the higher speed, and hence more expensive, medium. Its abbreviation is HSM. Also called data migration (2).
