Extend Your Reach: Enhancements in Novell File Management Suite Deliver Even More Control over Your Storage Resources
By Ken Baker, Novell Connection Magazine - May 2010
Here's an excerpt:
To help you deal with the file system challenge caused by the rapid and ongoing proliferation of user data, Novell released Novell File Management Suite earlier this year. (See Controlling the Chaos.) Comprised of Novell File Reporter, Novell Storage Manager and Novell Dynamic File Services, the individual products in Novell File Management Suite work together to turn file system chaos into organized efficiency. Supporting file storage infrastructures in both Novell eDirectory and Microsoft Active Directory environments, Novell File Management Suite brings intelligence to file storage management. It works at the file level to let you better manage the growth of storage, allocate and control storage based on identity, and save money in the administration and procurement of storage resources. (See Not Your Typical Storage Management.)
Due to its ability to dramatically improve the efficiency, effectiveness and manageability of file storage in both Novell Open Enterprise Server and Windows Server environments, customers have welcomed the new offering with much excitement. So much so that they quickly began asking Novell to broaden the solution’s reach across their file storage infrastructures too. In response to those requests, Novell made the development of an updated version of Novell File Management Suite a high priority —and released the product just weeks ago.
