Determine your storage growth rate, project capacity needs and more

If you are managing your network storage, you are undoubtedly working hard to maintain enough free capacity to handle expected growth. One way to maintain free capacity is to buy large, expensive storage devices with enough disk space to accommodate growth for a certain amount of time.

Novell File Reporter offers a better and more accurate way of planning for storage growth.

Novell File Reporter generates reports that tell you what files you can consider moving or deleting from your primary storage. It can also generate reports that display volume storage trends. Using this information, you can compare growth trends for a volume between two points in time.

Using this data, you can determine the growth rate on a volume, project when you will be near capacity and budget for more storage in advance.
