VERITAS Software's VERITAS StorageCentral scores an easy repeat of last year's Readers' Choice win, chalking up a landslide victory as Best Quota Management Software. Considering its gobbling of 65 percent of the vote, it's easy to see why more than 5000 companies worldwide use VERITAS StorageCentral.

VERITAS StorageCentral automatically controls Windows storage allocation, thereby reducing backup times and improving service levels. You can easily establish real-time quotas on shared Windows storage, and you can block inappropriate file types such as MP3 files, games, scripts, and viruses. The software lets you identify and recover wasted disk space and reports disk usage to users through active HTML reports and real-time notification when quota thresholds are reached. Users also have the ability to manage their own storage. VERITAS StorageCentral offers policy-based management for Windows-based Direct Attached Storage (DAS), Network Attached Storage (NAS), and Storage Area Network (SAN) disk storage, as well as Network Appliance filers. Microsoft uses VERITAS StorageCentral technology for quota management in Windows Storage Server 2003.
