Storage, Clouds, And More: New Software And Hardware At EMC World

Northern: New Storage Management Suite

Northern, a Tampa, Fla.-based developer of data management software, is using EMC World to showcase its new Northern Storage Suite 8.5, which brings state-of-the-art storage resource management to EMC's Celerra NAS appliance line and extending HSM (hierarchical storage management) support. It does this with new tailored reports that offer quick and deep visibility into aging data, enabling customers to identify and manage outdated or unused files wherever they may reside. Also new is the ability for administrators to set quotas on the primary or multiple tiers of storage to better correlate the value of data to the value of the storage device.
