From: Hierarchical Storage Management

Metior (pronounced like meteor) is targetting an incredibly broad
market, from laptops with removable media through supercomputers, with
prices from $650(!) to $118K. They handle multiple coordinated copies,
so off-site backup can be automatic. Can do migration for client
machines (with appropriate software licenses and changes to the file
system). The hierarchy seems to be extremely flexible, variable on a
per-user or per-group basis. Machines without client licenses can
mount the Metior FS using NFS. Runs on Suns, SGI, and HP 9000/700. ANT
is new, and they've only got a handful of customers so far, but it
looks _very_ interesting.

not accurate) (rdv,94/7/7)
