Are you dealing with millions (or even billions) of data files in your file storage system? Need a file management system that can help you with storage, tiering and archiving ― all without breaking the bank? This post is for you!
It’s that time of year when college campuses are overrun with new students and their laptops and other devices ― a new school year has begun! But for many college IT departments, the question soon becomes how to manage this increase in file data? What is the right solution for understanding files and managing data storage? Today on Storage Insights, we’re conducting a back-to-basics course entitled, “How to Manage File Data,” featuring lessons learned from the Arts and Sciences Department of Concordia University.
Users with unlimited file data storage capacity really don’t understand the impact they have on the network. They see a network as a place for storing any number of files, including personal ones. In fact, it’s not unusual for an administrator to find all kinds of file data on network resources, including MP3, MOV, or even Torrent files. These personal files eat away at your primary storage space and increase the risk of an outage. But did you know that you can leverage user quotas to create awareness and educate users about the risks associated with poor file storage management?
