Morgridge Institute for Research enhances file management with ClarityNow!
- Derek Cooper, IT Technical Manager at the Morgridge Institute for Research
We previously had multiple approaches, which included Robinhood on the Gluster environment and various document management programs. These approaches required too much maintenance and manual interaction, and did not provide a single view of all the data for the Institute encompassing all of our storage repositories. ClarityNow! provides the immediate visibility required by Labs and Principal Investigators.
The ClarityNow! software is easy to use and quick to set up and configure. When the Principal Investigators at Morgridge receive requests for reports, they are now able to pull together the data almost instantaneously. The Research Coordinator can do the searches herself and interface directly with the Principal Investigators, without having to open helpdesk tickets and bog down critical Engineering resources. ClarityNow!’s high speed tagging and indexing system enables the ability to view data by Lab, Theme, and user home directory. Reports on common “cleanup” areas are also automatically generated.
The Morgridge Institute had been experiencing problems with the inconsistent naming conventions of files. “Occasionally, users will put unusual ASCII characters in filenames that break some of our scripts that are responsible for reporting disk usage and backing up files. ClarityNow! will help us quickly identify these files and correct the filenames,” said Neil Van Lysel, Infrastructure Support Specialist at Morgridge.
Workflow solutions integrator CineSys-Oceana delivered the ClarityNow! solution to the Morgridge Institute.
