What is/are: New in NSS 9.5 (Release Notes)


  • Role-adapted Reporting
    Engage data-owners in the organization's efforts to reach UDM targets; implement a policy of Role-adapted Reporting and give data owners access to tailored and goal-oriented Dashboards. Delivered to individuals within the lines of business - Project Owners, Department Heads, Share Custodians, Individual Users, etc - these modern dashboards provide fast summaries with an information-rich drill-down layer, for those who need the details. Role-adapted Reporting is a low-cost high-impact method of highlighting data management inefficiencies, policy violations and risk for those who are in the absolute best position to correct and optimize. This is the next step in effective and secure User Data Management. Please contact your Account Manager for more information and for access to the necessary NSS software.
  • UDM Reporting Across SharePoint Sites
    Policies that rely on user data reports can now be extended to include data stored in SharePoint Sites.
  • UDM Reporting for NFS Exports
    Policies that rely on user data reports can now be extended to include data stored in NFS exports.
  • Support for NetApp Clustered Data ONTAP 8.2
    During 2013 Northern and NetApp have been cooperating on the development of a new FPolicy API. This API extends the familiar capabilities of FPolicy in 7-mode configurations to Clustered Data ONTAP, when using ONTAP 8.2. Now organizations can include the migration of quota policies in their general migration and deployment planning for Clustered Data ONTAP 8.2.
