Visibility; The Key To Data Management

Data Management at your fingertips

Data on your file servers accumulates at a much faster rate than you even realize, and without the ability to view your network data it is an unavoidable fact that you will eventually run into problems. Problems such as increased backup times or backup’s that just won’t run, to completely running out of storage space. It is impossible to manage a problem that you do not have visibility of. It is essential for the efficient management of your file servers to be able to pull reports on your file server’s usage.  This will help avoid the chaotic deletion of files when the server eventually reaches capacity.

Windows File Server Reporting and Analysis with Quick Results

FileAnalyzer gives you file server reporting that pays for itself many times over (high ROI!). No more flying blind  or weekends desperately searching for storage relief. With FileAnalyzer, you will immediately see how your file storage is being used and wasted – by owner, by file type, by age (last modified, created, accessed), by folder path, by size, by name. You can see which files to delete or archive and reclaim valuable storage space. It’s easy to get users or managers to take action when you have the facts to show them.

  • Understand what is on your file servers: FileAnalyzer reporting and analysis gives you the understanding and insight into your file server storage usage. With FileAnalyzer, you will immediately see how your file storage is being used and wasted.
  • Clean Up: File Analyzer gives you reports where you can see the oldest, most duplicates, and clear vision into the “junk” that fills up your file servers. From any report, click on a file or folder and toss it into the trash to remove the files from your file server. Reclaim valuable storage space. You can use FileArchiver policies for file archiving to delete files that are old or unneeded.
  • Set a Storage Goal and use Automated Policies: File Archiver has automated policies that can free up space on your file servers. Files that are older than a specified time period, unneeded, or unused are automatically moved to a file archive where they are compressed, encrypted and stored for automatic retrieval. You can have different policies for different folders. The original file location contains a tiny 1K shortcut link “stub” that automatically retrieves the file from the archive. You can migrate the shortcut to the new file server. It’s seamless to users. Files are shrunk and de-duplicated on to lower cost storage. File Archiver packs your files (compressed, encrypted, de-duplicated, single instanced) into folders on low cost storage that reduce your long backup time even more.

In a recession, it’s all about reducing costs and delivering more value. FileAnalyzer gives you the first step in managing your storage – better than Windows File Server Reporting. You will be surprised at how full of junk your servers are!
