Abstract : Information Lifecycle Management is a key aspect of Information Management, determining when information should be moved to backing store to free up local, high speed storage for critical information needs. The Value Factor based Information Lifecycle Management (VFILM) project under the Enterprise Information Lifecycle Management contract developed concepts and a prototype for mission-driven information lifecycle management that includes automated triggering of information migration based on mission events and mission-based policy, valuation of information using dependencies, and migration and retrieval of information objects and groups. The resulting prototype software works with AFRL Information Management services and repositories and has been demonstrated on relevant USAF operational scenarios. The software prototype was validated with experiments that evaluated its functionality, performance, and compared it to age-based Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM) approaches. This report is the final technical report for the VFILM project and describes the research, development, and evaluation results from the project.
