Understand Your Data Better
Get a clear picture of your unstructured data.
One of the biggest challenges in controlling file storage chaos is that organizations typically lack a logical means for understanding the value of the millions of individual files across their network. Too many unanswered file storage questions exist. So, where do you even begin? Novell File Management Suite provides you with a clear picture of all the unstructured data being stored in your organization. This will let you plan and deploy a more efficient storage infrastructure, and help you comply with governance requirements.
Novell File Management Suite answers the vital questions that allow you to analyze file storage patterns and design polices to control the chaos. How much unstructured data exists on network storage volumes? Whose files are relevant and need to be archived? What files can be moved or deleted? How many orphaned folders exist? How much storage is being used to store media files like MP3s or AVIs? What departments are using most of the organization's storage capacity? Do redundant files exist and to whom do they belong? When were certain files last used and who owns them? Is there any storage abuse? If so, by whom?
The intelligence gleaned using Novell File Management Suite can help you make strategic IT decisions, such as how cloud storage can play a role based on current usage patterns. The new insights gained by answering these questions will make you more efficient, facilitate compliance and lead to greater savings.
For example, to accommodate growth, a typical large organization might add 10 to 20 percent of its storage capacity each year through disk purchases. Simply by understanding its data picture better and then intelligently allocating existing hardware resources, an organization might be able to eliminate or reduce this annual cost for immediate return on investment.
