I need to create user home folders with the correct access rights, load balance data across servers, and dispose of files once they become irrelevant.
Even in today's technology-savvy world, many companies still manually manage network storage. IT personnel individually assign, maintain, archive, and clean up all the storage for every employee in the company—a huge man-hour cost over time and a hindrance to completing other IT projects.
Storage Manager completely automates user and group file storage lifecycle management.
The moment you create a user in NetIQ eDirectory™ or Microsoft Active Directory, Storage Manager can automatically create a home folder, a profile path, and a personal folder in a collaborative storage area for the user. It can also establish access rights for the user’s home folder and collaborative storage areas on the network, set disk quota limitations, and populate the home folder with role-specific documents.
After Storage Manager establishes user storage, it automatically performs other tasks such as managing renames, grooming disallowed file types from user and collaborative storage, moving home folders, adjusting access rights when users’ roles change, balancing storage distribution across servers, and more.
Finally, when users leave your organization, Storage Manager can automatically delete their home folders, transfer the home folders from primary storage to a vault location or keep the folders accessible for a set number of days before disposing of or archiving them.
Today, Storage Manager is managing storage for hundreds of thousands of users in industries such as education, government, banking, transportation, healthcare, and more.
