The DMF Users Group was started in 2009 to provide a forum for sites using HPE’s Data Management Framework (formerly SGI’s Data Migration Facility) HSM software to provide assistance and encouragement to each other, and to provide feedback to HPE. The meetings, website and mailing list were maintaned until 2024 through the dedication of Peter Edwards and Rob Bell from CSIRO.

The website resources that were hosted at CSIRO are now available here, including all past presentations. The table of past presentations covers topics and user perspectives on DMF7 and DMF6, tape, cold disk storage, system administration and there’s even a presentation on moving a data centre interstate.
