File Optimization

The core technology in all our products for compressing Adobe PDF, Microsoft Office, JPEG and TIFF files without changing their file format.

How it works:


32 second technology overview


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.

File Optimization In Action

Storage Reduction

Available solutions: NXPowerLite for File Servers and NXPowerLite for Microsoft Exchange
Avoid servers running out of space
Optimize all the existing files on your server to avoid running out of space.
Slow down storage growth
Consistently shrink new files being added to your servers giving greater control over storage growth.
Reduce backup time
Smaller files on front-line storage means you'll have smaller, faster backup and restore windows too.
Data migration
Use prior to a migration to reduce the volume of data you need to transfer.

Bandwidth Reduction

Available solutions: Optemail and NXPowerLite Desktop
Shrink emails in flight
Optimize files sent by email to significantly reduce bandwidth, improve delivery rates and avoid costly user productivity drains.
