NXPowerLite for File Servers 7

Compress PDF, Microsoft Office, JPEG and TIFF files on your server

Reclaim storage, extend server life

NXPowerLite reclaims storage space by reducing the size of large PDF, Microsoft Office, JPEG and TIFF files. It reduces the size of the files without changing their format, leaving them much smaller but otherwise identical to the originals. File owners will not see any changes to their files.

How it works

Large PDF and Microsoft Office files often contain a lots of high-resolution images, and background data not required for normal use of the file. By removing this data and unneeded excessive bytes from internal graphics and standalone JPEGs, NXPowerLite radically reduces files to their smallest size - without compromising quality.

Watch how it works in just 36 seconds, or read our in-depth guide to the NXPowerLite compression technology.

We saved about 200 GB of space straightaway, a 25 percent reduction. The software ran in the background, so there was no downtime at all, which was great.

Key Product Features

Flexible Rules
Easily select which folders and files to compress. By combining attributes like date last modified, location and extension you can exclude specific file types, new files or even entire departments.

Transparent compression
Compressed files stay in the same format with the same file extension. They will look and feel identical to the originals, just much smaller. So using NXPowerLite is completely transparent to end users.
Easy scheduling
Use the built in schedule function or control the service from other events using Windows task scheduler. This provides flexibility to work around other regular tasks like backups.

Works with any storage
Compress files on any storage device in the same Windows domain as the machine on which NXPowerLite is installed, including EMC, NetApp and Novell Netware servers.
