EMC Isilon SmartQuotas
EMC Isilon SmartQuotas software helps you maximize the long-term value of your business data and drive down storage management cost and complexity by providing simple, scalable, and flexible quota management and provisioning for your EMC Isilon scale-out storage environment.
Flexible Quota Management and Provisioning
SmartQuotas enables you to control and limit storage usage, easily provision a single pool of Isilon scale-out storage, and present more storage capacity to applications and users than is physically installed. With SmartQuotas, you can seamlessly partition storage into segments at the cluster, directory, sub-directory, group, and user levels through quota and provisioning assignments and policies.
SmartQuotas is cluster-aware and spans across all Isilon nodes, regardless of cluster size or number of storage devices. With SmartQuotas, it is as simple to manage quotas for thousands of users as it is to manage a few dozen. SmartQuotas easily supports massive scalability of users and groups for even the largest storage environments.
Automated Reporting and Alerts
SmartQuotas gives you flexible reporting and notification options to advise end-users, managers, and administrators about their resource usage. With SmartQuotas, you can automatically send alerts when quota limits are approaching, enforce hard stops on writes, or provide a grace period before enforcing thresholds.
