AUSTRALIA, Sydney - 10 April 2007
PAC Software, Inc., a developer of software tools for system
management, today announced the release of Folderscape, a
management tool for NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) storage systems that was
developed through PAC Software's membership in the NetApp Partner
Program. Folderscape helps customers manage NetApp storage systems
with features such as creating, configuring, and re-sizing
aggregates, volumes, and LUNs. It also allows routine maintenance
of Snapshot™ copies, quotas, users, groups, qtrees, folders
One of the innovative features of Folderscape is that it displays
files in different colours when they are also in Snapshot copies,
allowing users to quickly understand what has changed. A simple
right-click of the mouse can be used to restore files.
"The NetApp Partner Program is designed to enable NetApp Advantage
Partners like PAC Software to provide additional management
functionality on NetApp storage," said Patrick Rogers, vice
president of Solutions Marketing at Network Appliance.
"This is a terrific program," said Harry McIntosh, President of PAC
Software. "It allows PAC and NetApp to work together to create
highly effective products for customers."
The functions in Folderscape are provided through a friendly,
Windows-oriented graphical user interface. This interface makes the
software immediately familiar and easy to use. It also shows the
storage structure in a graphical way, which helps reduce the
learning curve for new users.
