NAS/SAN question

By Net Designer ·
OBJECTIVE:
Move data stored on SDLT tapes to NAS
NAS has to be a redundant hardware or software solution. Currently we need to move around 2 TB but would like to have ability to easily expand.
We'd like to go with lowest possible cost.
What vendors would you recommend?
Thanks.

NetApp makes some fairly solid gear for a reasonable prices for small and mid-sized companies. If I am not mistaken, the FAS200 can handle up to 6TB, which would allow you room to grow.

If you have any HIPAA or SOX liabilities, it's time to call in EMC. They are never cheap, but they make great hardware and stand behind it.

Be sure to remember that Exchange 2003 does not work with NAS and only with SAN.

Flexible Data Architecture

Hi -

I work for an organization that specializes in designing and implementing data management systems. We leverage Netapp for all of our storage solutions because they are the industry leader in the NAS space. Netapp can offer you a solution that be grown from 2TB's to 100's of TB's without have to migrate your data while providing you a number of inherent capabilities that their competitors like HP, and EMC cannot. If you have sometime available please send me your contact information and I will give you a call.

Thanks!

Brandon
