NTP Software, the worldwide leader in user-focused, policy-based storage management today announced that Nextel Partners is using NTP Software to control storage utilization within its data center in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. The implementation of NTP Software has dramatically reduced storage expenses and increased system performance.
Nextel Partners provides wireless digital communication services in mid-sized and smaller markets throughout the U.S. To manage the explosive storage capacity at their data center site that includes, 58 Windows file servers and one Network Appliance filer, Tim Adams, LAN Analyst Server at Nextel Partners, needed a storage management solution that would reduce disk growth with policy enforcement. Adams has expressed the ease of use he has received with the implementation of NTP Software QFS™ and Modeling & Analysis™. “We have dramatically curbed disk growth through policy enforcement for 3000 end users. It has allowed us to better manage and maintain a healthy storage environment throughout our company,” says Tim Adams.
NTP Software QFS™ has enabled Adams to set quotas relative to volume size and be notified when thresholds are violated, while NTP Software Modeling & Analysis™ identifies usage trends, allowing him to better predict future storage requirements. Aaron Dufoe, Director of Sales says, “Our storage management products allow companies like Nextel Partners to control users on any storage device with a single, simple set of enterprise-wide, user-focused storage policies across all storage platforms.”
