NAS Purchase Consideration

Cover
Although SANs provide significant performance and utilization benefits, many organizations have trouble justifying the costs and complexities involved. In many cases, storage can be added to your network through NAS devices. These devices can be expanded with additional disks and new NAS appliances can be added to store greater amounts of storage.

Most NAS devices include vendor-specific management tools, but there are some generic tools that provide heterogeneous NAS platform support. This makes it important to keep certain considerations in mind during any NAS purchase.

Download this guide from SearchStorage.com for in-depth steps you should take when making your decision, including:

  • Determine the underlying need for NAS
  • Consider your storage needs for the long haul
  • Evaluate the performance of any potential NAS device
  • Consider the product utilization and value
  • And more
