Northern Releases Storage Management Suite for Netapp Storage Systems

NORTHERN STORAGE SUITE FOR NETAPP INCREASES MANAGEABILITY OF
NETAPP DEVICES ACROSS ENTERPRISE ENVIRONMENTS AND DECREASES
OVERALL COST OF NETWORKED STORAGE


Tampa, FL – June 19, 2007: NORTHERN, global providers of flexible, easy to administer, Windows-based storage resource management software solutions, today releases Northern Storage Suite for NetApp, bringing state-of-the-art storage resource management to NetApp NAS devices. While previous versions of Northern Storage Suite enabled remote management of NetApp devices, Northern tailored their industry-leading SRM tool to fully integrate with NetApp devices, using NetApp's own ManageONTAP® API's. Northern Storage Suite for NetApp affords site administrators flexible, granular and scalable enterprise storage management within a non-intrusive, low impact architecture – an important consideration for large-scale NetApp administration. Northern Storage Suite for NetApp introduces three key features to provide enhanced management of NetApp storage devices across enterprise environments:

HIGH-SCALABILITY QUOTA TECHNOLOGY -- allows for the monitoring of disk objects without interruption of file system activity – enforcing disk quotas and maintaining maximum filer performance.

FPOLICY-BASED FILE BLOCKING QUOTAS - prevents specific file types from being saved.

NETAPP QUOTA RULES - viewing, setting and editing can be done within the suite’s
interface, simplyfing management and allowing for smooth migration for NetApp
administrators who are using the built-in Data ONTAP technology.


Today’s announcement underscores our ability to support and extend NAS devices – particularly NetApp NAS devices – as more organizations
embrace and implement NAS technology to address their need for flexible, cost-effective and reliable storage,
“ said Thomas Vernersson, Northern President. “Northern Storage Suite for NetApp focuses on increasing manageability and decreasing overall cost of networked storage – particularly across demanding enterprise environments The suite expands NetApp functionality without impacting overall system performance – a major benefit to Netapp administrators who now have a centralized means of identifying and reclaiming wasted capacity, controlling user behavior, making users responsible for the data they store and accurately forecasting storage needs at individual device and enterprise levels.

Northern Storage Suite is a complete SRM package that provides a unique solution to a widely shared problem: managing storage resources efficiently, reliably, cost-effectively. Northern Storage Suite for NetApp facilitates the following core SRM functions for NetAppbased
storage solutions:

  • Identify and reclaim wasted storage capacity through wide-ranging reporting and automation capabilities.
  • Control user behavior using disk quotas and denying users the possibility to save certain file types.
  • Involve end-users to take an active part in solving the storage problems by providing an interactive web portal.
  • Plan for future storage needs with advanced trending and cost analysis.
