Festo Corporation Chooses NTP Software® To Control Storage Growth

NTP Software™, the worldwide leader in the management and control of unstructured data, today announced that Festo Corporation, a leader in global automation, offering total solutions for today’s manufacturing companies, is using the industry leading NTP Software QFS™ for NAS NetApp® Edition to maximize performance of their critical storage resources.

The 81-year-old Germany-based organization operates in over 54 countries and supports over 11,000 end-users across the globe. Faced with the challenge of managing an increasingly complex storage environment, including legacy Windows systems coupled with newly acquired Network Appliance filers, Festo implemented NTP Software QFS™ to automate their storage management and regain control of their vital corporate assets.

Earlier this year, Festo enveloped both its Windows and Filer environment operations under a single management umbrella, considerably lowering their administrative costs and dramatically reducing the amount of inappropriate data stored within their environment. The solution has cut server hardware costs in half, increased server uptime, and given significant time back to the administrative community to focus on mission critical activities.

“By deploying NTP Software QFS™ for NAS NetApp® Edition, we’re now able to automate the control of our critical storage resources in multiple locations across the continent. NTP Software’s™ open architecture and ease of management allowed Festo to quickly realize a return on our investment by scaling the technology against our diverse storage infrastructure,” said Steve Damadeo, North American IT Operations Manager, Festo Corporation.

“NTP Software’s™ solutions provide Festo with the instruments to simplify storage management and reduce costs for the organization,” said Aaron Dufoe, Vice President of Sales at NTP Software™. “NTP Software™ is proud to have the opportunity to build on the company’s successful management history with Festo Corporation.”
