The aspect of storage of data has emerged to be one of the main concerns for the IT and IT related industries in today’s world. In these industries each day a huge amount for data is produced and without proper storage system those data can get lost, forever. That is why with each passing day the new kinds of technologies related to the storing solution are created. However, not all of them have the capability to satisfy the need of the market.Inforparts technologies offers comprehensive solutions on SAN and NAS
A storage area network (SAN) is a secure high-speed data transfer network that provides access to consolidated block-level storage. An SAN makes a network of storage devices accessible to multiple servers. SAN devices appear to servers as attached drives, eliminating traditional network bottlenecks. SANs are sometimes also referred to (albeit redundantly) as SAN storage, SAN network, network SAN, etc.
Advantages of SAN storage include:-
A Network Attached Storage (NAS) device is a storage device connected to a network that allows storage and retrieval of data from a centralised location for authorised network users and heterogeneous clients. NAS devices are flexible and scale-out, meaning that as you need additional storage, you can add on to what you have. A NAS is like having a private cloud in the office. It’s faster, less expensive and provides all the benefits of a public cloud onsite, giving you complete control. NAS devices are perfect for small businesses because they are:
With a NAS device, data is continually accessible, making it easy for employees to collaborate, respond to customers in a timely fashion, and promptly follow up on sales or other issues because information is in one place. Because a NAS device is like a private cloud, data may be accessed remotely using a network connection, meaning employees can work anywhere and any time.
