Veritas buys storage management software

Software vendor Veritas has announced that it has acquired storage software from NTP Software to be integrated with its storage resource management products.

The company acquired NTP's Storage Reporter for an "immaterial" amount, a Veritas spokesman said. Storage Reporter offers reporting and analysis, predictive capacity modelling, quota reporting and cost allocation and chargeback. It fills a hole in Veritas's SANPoint Control storage management software.

Veritas said the product, branded as Veritas Storage Reporter, will be available in 30 days. Integration of Storage Reporter into SANPoint Control, the Veritas Volume and File System, NetBackup and the upcoming Global Operations Management, will take place over the next 18 months.

Ten employees who work on Storage Reporter at NTP will now become Veritas employees. NTP is better known for its Quota & File Sentinel software, which lets network managers monitor and enforce disk space quotas on directories, shares and servers.
