File Optimization in action

File Optimization is essentially invisible, which makes it extremely versatile. It’s perfect for reducing files either at rest for storage reduction or in transit for bandwidth reduction and we have solutions that address both.

NXPowerLite for File Servers and NXPowerLite for Microsoft Exchange

  1. AVOID SERVERS RUNNING OUT OF SPACE

    Optimize all existing files on your server and delay the date when your storage will reach capacity.
  2. SLOW DOWN FILE STORAGE GROWTH

    Consistently shrink new files being added to your servers giving greater control over storage growth.
  3. REDUCE BACKUP TIME

    Smaller files on front-line storage means you'll have smaller, faster backups.
  4. DATA MIGRATION

    Use prior to a migration to reduce the volume of data you need to transfer.
  1. EMAIL

    Optimize files sent by email to significantly reduce bandwidth as well as improving delivery.
A unique solution that eliminates unessential data, converts graphics to the most efficient format and resolution, dramatically reduces the size of content-rich files, and increases efficiency and bottom line cost savings, all while keeping the file intact.

Key features

Reduces file size without changing format

File Optimization carefully targets and removes excess data from files, leaving them smaller but in all other ways identical to the originals. This ensures that file owners will not be aware of any changes to their files.

Effective on already compressed files 

Microsoft Office files are often already compressed and contain lots of pre-compressed content like JPEG images. Unlike standard compression technologies, File Optimization is very effective on these compressed files.

Reduces photos without down-sampling/scaling

It substantially reduces the file size of JPEGs by re-encoding the image using more efficient settings without reducing the image resolution. The image remains visibly unchanged but takes up less disk space.
