Q

Platform responsibilities

Jim,

Our storage department is acquiring storage responsibilities for all Microsoft server platforms. Currently there are no policies and standards for our user and departmental file servers. In my opinion I think we should implement quota policies and acceptable use/file restriction policies to help manage this environment. Where would be a good place to find out what other companies are doing for file server policies?


Network Appliance has a wealth of information on quota policies, so I would start there. There are a number of case studies on different companies. One that I found interesting was this one discussing how GTE was able to scale their NT file server environment.

Check with the other file server vendors for similar information.
