IT industry is the well-known sector in this commercial business industry. There are many organizations, which are categorized under information technology industry. Data is the main asset for this industry as it contains confidential business details. Usually, most of the organizations maintain servers to store and manage the valuable data, but these servers have limited capacity. These servers can also provide network connections within organization. Due to this reason, many IT professionals are developing multiple storage devices used as external and internal. These can store large amount of data with maximum capacity. Many organizations use network storage devices to save their money and time. These store and protect the organizational crucial information and also provide access through network connections.
Network attached storage (NAS) is the popular device to maintain and protect massive amount of data. It directly connects with the server to provide data access within organizational network. It acts as server storage for any organization to share files and maintain data backup in a shared volume. It has multiple slots to connect other devices like hard disk, RAID systems and other storage devices. It can support various operating systems like windows, Linux, UNIX, Solaris and many more. It also supports number of software applications and programs in the system or server. NAS devices help in mapping the file locations using protocols like TCP or IP.
There are many systems which are developed under network attached storage such as N6000 series, N6210, N6240, N6270, N3000 express, N7000 and many more. All these systems can improve the NAS flexibility with modular disk storage. It has expansion capability to increase the storage efficiency. Storage area network (SAN) another efficient device to store and maintain the information. SAN is completely dissimilar form NAS and more competent as it uses different hardware systems and protocols to increase the efficiency. But NAS device can provide better security than SAN. It is capable in dealing with all kinds of business requirements and large amount of data. It provides faster processing power to increase the productivity and reduce the server downtime. It uses internal Serial advanced technology attachment (SATA) to connect with the network. There are multiple hard drives present inside the NAS to provide maximum capacity. It is cost effective and can be affordable by small business enterprises to large ones. It is highly scalable to increase the business performance and efficiency. Most of the organizations are using this system storage to augment their business requirements along with the performance.
