Network Attached Storage (NAS) systems are commonplace in today’s data centers. After using the technology for over a decade, organizations are now looking for more from these systems. One of their top priorities is reducing costs by leveraging commodity hardware. NAS customers, in particular, are interested in software-defined solutions. A second priority for IT planners is meeting their organization’s needs for higher performance and greater scale. Finally, as the number of files on these systems continues to grow, they are looking for a better way to protect the data on these systems.
This whitepaper, “Building a Better NAS,” details how the ready-to-go aspect of S1:Block & File works and how you can leverage it in your environment.
