SP uses an automated URI generation procedure, file naming procedure, and file system to manage the number and location of objects in a consistent manner. Each object has a unique, unambiguous URI and location in archival storage. This information is located in the preservation metadata. The TSM backup system has a database that associates tape backup copies with their originals in the Pillar storage array.
Please see the URI & File Naming Plan and Workflow Charts for more information. For reference, the Backup Plan is also available.
