Buyer Prerequisites for Scale-out Storage
To solve the Network-Attached Storage sprawl problem, NAS vendors have developed what’s referred to as “scale-out” NAS.
Scale-out NAS allows for a large number of front-end nodes to be clustered and for back-end storage modules to be added into a single pool that could reach into the PBs. The architectures of traditional NAS and scale-out NAS are significantly different, meaning their applicable use cases are also different.
If management of traditional NAS systems is becoming cumbersome for you, perhaps it’s time to consider scale-out NAS as either an alternative or a supplement. Check out this comprehensive white paper to ensure your organization meets the prerequisites for deploying successful scale-out NAS.
