Unified Storage Architecture Enabling Today’s Dynamic Data Center

The traditional model for enterprise storage requires a different storage system for each storage function: one storage architecture for NAS, another for SANs, and additional platforms for secondary storage, archive, and compliance. Because of the complexity and cost such an approach can incur, many vendors in the storage industry have begun to talk about “unified” storage.

This white paper examines the key elements of the NetApp unified storage architecture in detail, including multiprotocol support, single management interface, integrated data protection, support for multiple tiers of storage, QoS, and the ability to act as a front end for legacy storage systems. Read on to learn more.

  • Storage Magazine finds Top Enterprise NAS Vendor

    According to Rich Castagna, storage thought leader and editorial director of TechTarget’s Storage Magazine, “Storage managers trying to dig their way out from growing piles of file data might hate the fact that they need to buy another network-attached storage (NAS) box. But their hate quickly turns into the closest thing to love you’ll find in a data center when they actually get that new NAS up and running.”

    But before you invest in another NAS purchase or search for justification as to why such an investment may or may not be needed, check out Storage magazine’s review of today’s top NAS vendors based on the just-published results of their Quality Awards winners, a special edition of the magazine that’s designed to identify and recognize products that have proven their quality and reliability in actual use.

    Download today and view the complete results and discover the top vendors to consider as you move forward with your 2014 product planning and see who took top honors (hint: Dell Inc. grabbed its first win for best NAS storage and emerged as the favorite among enterprise-class NAS systems; Hitachi Data Systems Corp., often considered an enterprise vendor, topped the midrange group for the second year in a row).
