NTP Software QFS®
Take control of your files
In the early days of file data storage, something became clear very quickly: if you give a person unlimited storage space, they will do their best to use all of it. And so the quota was invented, and it was good.
So if today, storage hardware comes with native quotas, why would you ever invest in something else? Because NTP Software QFS gives you the sort of power and flexibility that native software doesn’t come near, enabling huge savings and increased efficiency across your organization.
What is NTP Software QFS? It is a solution which allows for configurable, granular quota and file blocking policies. What does it allow you to do?
- Manage with Disk Quota Policies to limit user consumption
- Reduce your risk and storage growth with advanced File Blocking
- Apply NetApp Quotas, Celerra Quotas, VNX Quotas, HNAS Quotas, and many more
- Provide tools for users to understand and clean up unneeded data
- Make controlling data and storage easy without creating additional headaches
How does it do all this? NTP Software QFS is able to integrate with most storage platforms at a deep level, because of NTP Software’s relationships with hardware vendors. This means near-instantaneous ability to check against a policy when an end-user requests saving a file. And because you can apply policies at the share and directory levels, you can tailor your file blocking and quotas based on the specific needs of your end-users.

Get the complete control you require for your growing data and storage needs.
With granular policy management, NTP Software QFS allows you to completely control your file data estate. Whether it’s file blocking or quotas, you have the ability to set the appropriate policy for your end users.
Should a new hire have the same quota as his boss? The CEO? What about employees in marketing? With NTP Software QFS, you can set the right policy for your end users based on job function, seniority, or any other metric you would want.
Junk data clutters disk while offering no business value. Don't pay to store it.
Most people don’t realize just how much of their business disk is being consumed by non-business ‘junk’ files. MP3’s, MOV’s, and other non-business related media files could be taking up more of your space than you realize. Block those file types to prevent further misuse of your space.
And with granular policies, you can choose who is blocked for any given kind of file. Should you block JPEG’s on your marketing share? Probably not. Have the power to choose.
Enterprise-wide data management, regardless of storage type or platform.
NTP Software QFS has the ability to integrate with all of your storage platforms, centralizing your management and applying the same policies no matter where the data resides on the back end.
NTP Software QFS integrates with NetApp filers, EMC VNX, Windows, and more.
Save time and confusion by controlling your file storage environment through a single interface.
NTP Software QFS integrates with all of your storage platforms to enable management from a single interface, allowing for company wide policy management with a single click. And on most storage platforms, NTP Software QFS can manage quotas and block files in real time.
Get your end users to comply with data use policies by getting them involved.
Engage End Users
Don’t just tell your end users they can or can’t do something. Get them actively involved in the process of managing their own space. With quota limit warning emails, they will know when they’re using too much space. And with tools like NTP Software Storage Investigator™, they’ll be able to go into their own share and clean up without needing to ask a storage admin for help.
Ensure storage is available for everyone and completely control all aspects of its use.
With good quota management, you never need worry about storage over use, or end users having availability issues when they go to save a file. NTP Software QFS gives you the power you need to properly apportion your disk space to prevent space hogs burning through your disk.
