DISCUSSION: Network Attached Storage – An Alternative To Tape Drives In Managing Massive Amounts of Data
 
This thread is to discuss the article titled:
Network Attached Storage - An Alternative To Tape Drives In Managing Massive Amounts of Data

Quote:

While a direct-attached solution such as a tape drive works well with an individual server or a limited number of servers, large amounts of data becomes harder to manage across a multiple server network environment. Storage for each server must be managed apart from the others and cannot be shared across the network. Performance and scalability are often limited, and storage resources cannot be efficiently allocated. The data management needs of today's businesses are typically much better served by a networked attached storage approach. Network-attached storage gives businesses the ability to share and manage large amounts of data over the Internet or a corporate Intranet. NAS systems are optimized for file storage and data protection and offer sophisticated data management capabilities which in turn help companies reduce costs, improve data availability, and simplify operations.
