DAS, NAS or SAN: Choosing the Right Storage Technology for Your Organization
Source: Xtore Extreme Storage
Businesses are subject to a new wave of regulatory compliance legislation that directly affects the process of storing, managing and archiving data. Although the need for storage is evident, it is not always clear which solution is right for the organization. There are a variety of options available, the most prevalent being Direct-Attached Storage (DAS), Network-Attached Storage (NAS) and Storage Area Networks (SAN). Choosing the right storage solution can be as personal and individual a decision as buying a home. There is no one right answer for everyone. Instead, it is important to focus on the specific needs and long-term business goals of the organization.
