FMA/VE (or File Management Appliance/VE) is a virtual appliance that automates the movement of infrequently accessed or inactive files across storage tiers based on defined policies. It allows Storage Administrators to set up flexible policies for identifying files to be moved onto secondary storage. Before running a policy, a simulation can be run to preview the potential impact of the policy. Policies can be run immediately, or scheduled to run at regular intervals.
