Server is used as the basic infrastructure to store and maintain data. These days, data is growing immensely with the new business requirements in all industries. Data storage is the main concern for IT organizations; as it keeps on increasing with the rising market trends. It is difficult to maintain in single physical device. Servers can maintain the information and also provide network connections to the server domain within organization. The traditional servers have the limited capacity and they many not maintain large amount of data. If you store maximum data in these servers, then it may lead to slow processing power.
To meet all these issues, organizations have developed multiple storage devices to enhance the storage space and efficiency. There are several storage systems and devices, which can increase the competency and scalability such as SAN (storage area network), NAS (network attached storage), Storwize, data traveler, compact disk, digital video disk, hard disk drives, solid state drives, zip drives, flash drives, tape drives, autoloaders and many more. Out of all these devices, disk drives and data travelers can maintain the limited amount of data. These are useful to transfer the information form one device to another. These are easy to carry for many purposes. Whereas other storage systems like network storage devices are effective to maintain the immense amount of information.
NAS is the efficient device to store and maintain the large amount of information including various files like pictures, audio, video files, applications, programs and many more. These are directly connected to the servers to maintain the network connectivity in the same network domain. NAS can also protect the information from various internet treats and data loss. These devices have the ability to transfer the data from one disk to another in case of any disk failure. These days, many IT organizations are implementing these Network storage devices to maintain their crucial information for longer years and retrieve it whenever required. These can also provide cost effective solutions for all kinds of organizations form small sized to large sized to maintain the reliability and flexibility.
In today’s innovative business world, many organizations have developed many models under these devices with different specifications. There are N3000, N6000, N7000, Storwize and many other N series. These are featured with serial attached SCSI disk drives in express control units. These devices can support multiple operating systems, data backup, recovery, including tape and host based backup. Hence, these are effective to manage the large amount of information and retrieve it whenever required.
