Information technology is growing its business all over the world with good profit margins. Most of the organizations are working under this sector to produce several technologies, applications and IT services. As the business grows, data also grows. Hence, the amount of data is increasing according to the requirements. These days, most of the companies are facing challenges with these data storage problems. As the amount of data increases, it is difficult to store and maintain it in single device. Generally, servers are used as the main devices to maintain the crucial data in an organization. However, these traditional servers have the limited memory space to maintain the minimum amount of information for longer years. Due to this cause, most of the companies developing and implementing advanced server and storage devices to enhance the storage space.
Usually, SAN (storage area network), NAS (network attached storage), Storwize, tape autoloaders, tape drives, system X servers, flash memory drives, hard disk drives (HDD), solid state drives (SDD) and many other storage devices are used in an organization to support their main server with basic storage necessities. All these devices are associated with the main server with USB ports or input and output ports and provide network connections as well. The data, which is stored in these devices, can be accessed through server domain network shared folders. Hence, it is important to maintain and protect the data through various internet threats.
NAS device is the one, which can store, maintain and protect the data for longer years. It is the popular device in IT industry, hence, most of the IT companies prefer these devices to maintain and manage their important information. This device has the ability to share the data within organizational network connections and also acts as a shared network volume for backup folders and important files. In mapping, NAS can assist the several network connected devices by using protocols. In comparison to SAN device, NAS is totally different. It can connect through Ethernet cables and fibre channel and also using TCP or IP protocols. NAS uses RAID array to configure the hard disk drives for offering high storage capacity. These are cost effective and can be suggested to all kinds of organizations to maintain their data securely. Most of the organizations implement NAS devices to offer several solutions to increase the storage space and competency.
