Fusionstor NAS Enterprise Server and Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2003 Competitive Performance Comparison
This paper compares two important NAS operating systems and examines their performance. The term Network Attached Storage (NAS) may refer to any storage system that is directly attached to a network infrastructure and not directly connected to a server. The word "Storage" in this case refers to a system that provides data storage and allows data to be backed up and organized. All these tasks require the provision of data at high speeds. The speed at which the data is made available is measured in data throughput and latency. In general, a good NAS system will be characterized by a high throughput and a low latency.
