NTP Software, the worldwide leader in the control and management of unstructured data, today announced that three of its solutions will be available in mid-April 2008 through the EMC® Select program. Through this program, customers can purchase NTP Software QFS®, NTP Software Storage M&A™ and NTP Software Storage Billing System™ for the enterprise-wide, policy-based, real-time control and management of their unstructured data directly from EMC and its partners.
As a result of its inclusion in the EMC Select program, NTP Software has extended its technology, and in particular its flagship product NTP Software QFS®, to include seamless integration with EMC Celerra® IP storage systems. This is in addition to NTP Software’s existing support of EMC storage area network (SAN) systems.
“EMC offers a wide range of IP storage solutions that are easy to use, scale easily and offer advanced functionality,” said Paul Ross, General Manager for IP Storage Products at EMC. “The addition of NTP Software’s products in EMC Select will simplify the process for our customers to incorporate integrated quota management capabilities with our leading EMC Celerra family of systems.”
The combination of EMC Celerra with NTP Software QFS® offers customers cost-effective, high-performance file servers and SAN gateways that include enterprise-wide, policy-based, real-time control of the resource.
“Data, and the information derived from it, will continue to be a company’s most valued IT resource,” said Steve Duplessie, Founder and Sr. Analyst of Enterprise Strategy Group. “The ability to effectively manage data, especially considering compliance and regulatory issues, is a requisite function for businesses of all sizes. The tight integration of NTP Software QFS® with EMC’s Celerra and other products delivers a compelling solution.”
“We have been working with EMC and our mutual customers worldwide for more than a year to ensure that this solution meets their needs,” said Bruce Backa, CEO of NTP Software. “I believe that they, and everyone else, will be delighted with the performance and scalability of what we have put together.”
NTP Software products will be available in mid-April 2008 through EMC’s Select Program.
