Hello,

Please tell me the difference between SAN(storage area network) and NAS (network attach storage) in terms of there working and reliability.

Thanks

A SAN or ( Storage Area Network) is a network in which a group of computer or other devices used to store information are interconnected. Where as a NAS or (Network Attached Storage) appliance is a device such as the Colbalt Cube Series that sits on your network and is userally adminstered through a browser driven front end.
