Setting standards in storage technology
SOFTWARE DEFINED STORAGE
The rapid increase of data being generated by various applications and the move to provide cloud solutions has had a significant impact on the need to invest in robust storage solutions capable of not only storing but protecting business-critical data efficiently. Storage is available from: direct attached storage (DAS) directly connected to your computer, Storage Area Networks (SAN) which consolidates storage in a manageable area to Network Attached Storage (NAS) with larger storage devices accessible across the network.
Determining the right solution requires an assessment of the the volumes of data that will be produced. Technology improvements to solid state drives (SSDs) brings greater robustness and reliability to storage solutions. Flash technologies further enhance the benefits of efficient storage solutions.
