Control Data by Relevance
Manage files based on their relevance and value to your organization.
Not every file is equally valuable. Why do storage solutions treat them as if they are? Other solutions focus on managing blocks of data by their size and prompt you to add more disk space when capacity is full. Novell File Management Suite goes much further, managing files based on their relevance and value to the organization.
For example, files that belong to your most creative and productive employees can be located on its fastest, most expensive storage systems. On the other hand, data belonging to employees less connected to the profit center may be stored on less-expensive storage. Moreover, File Management Suite can identify files that haven't been touched in six months, or non-business files such as MP3 and AVI files, and direct them all to less-expensive storage. Industry benchmark studies show that 80% of all files on a network have not been accessed in the last six months; most never will be accessed again. The smartest way to utilize your storage resources is to keep your expensive systems for only the files that are most important.
Additionally, one of the most chaotic aspects of file storage is backup. With File Management Suite, you can get smart about backup by off-loading stale or less-relevant data to secondary devices that don't require daily backups. You can focus daily backups on the 20% of organizational data that is most important.
Considering that high-end storage can cost 10 times what low-end disk storage costs, there is an immediate return on investment by using File Management Suite. You'll utilize existing storage resources better, streamline bloated processes and avoid incremental hardware purchases.
