Manages your data assets
Novell Storage Manager directory-enacted policies ensure that you’re always managing your data assets properly. Novell Storage Manager handles data privacy, rights and access analysis, data disposition and more through its policies.
Automates routine storage tasks
If you have a large or dynamic user population, Novell Storage Manager can help you generate a substantial return on investment (ROI). That's because it automatically performs provisioning, rights settings, renames, storage transfers, vaulting, disposition and reassignments.
Contains data growth
Controlling your data management costs starts with controlling data growth. Novell Storage Manager policies can groom, archive and dispose of files, or distribute files for data load balancing.
Eases the burden on IT
Instead of saddling your IT helpdesk personnel with single-instance user and group storage tasks, let Novell Storage Manager automatically perform these tasks. Based on user identities and policies you create, Novell Storage Manager can set up user home directories, provision files and prepare your employees to be their most productive without bothering your IT staff.
Controls data access
You establish the rules, Novell Storage Manager enforces them. Set policies that control folders and dictate users’ access rights and let Novell Storage Manager implement the policies’ settings so only authorized users can access potentially sensitive data.
Makes data migrations easy
With Novell Storage Manager, migrating data from one Novell server to another is a simple two-step process. The Cross Empire Data Migration subsystem makes migrating from a Novell to a Microsoft server or a network-attached storage device easy too.
