NASHUA, N.H. -- NTP Software, the worldwide leader in the control and management of unstructured data, today announced NTP Software UDA, an application that links NTP Software QFS®, which provides policy-based control of file data (unstructured data), with Symantec (Nasdaq: SYMC) Enterprise Vault, the industrys leading email, file and content archiving platform.
NTP Software UDA, the latest addition to NTP Softwares product portfolio, enables employees to manually archive files into Enterprise Vault based on individual selections, or the user can select from a predefined set of criteria such as file size, age of last access, etc. (User-Driven Archiving UDA). Customers may also choose to establish policies that automatically archive files as users reach their storage limits (Quota-Driven Archiving). Both methods allow companies to control storage and operating costs, and expedite backups by moving files from a primary storage environment to lower-cost tiered storage with Enterprise Vault.
Customers have different requirements for archiving from file systems and need options to either automate archival, to allow users to manually archive only business-relevant files or leverage a combination of both options, said Simon Jelley, Senior Director, Enterprise Vault Product Management, Symantec. The integration with NTP Software UDA enables end-users to drive which files are put into the archive based on the business value of the files.
