ZONE STORAGE SOLUTION
The ZONE Storage Solutions are a set of flexible, integrated, pre-tested solutions created to meet customer's expectations of best-of-breed technologies tailored to meet leading edge challenges in the data centre.
Data storage is still a complex issue to many end-users, who look to their VARs to provide advice and exacting solutions.
Appreciating the different architectures which can be deployed as part of a data storage solution is a key element to implementing a successful solution. This section gives an overview of the main architectures and provides insights into both usage and functionality.
The 'Flash' presentations and the associated dialogue offer a more dynamic overview that contrasts and compares the architectural alternatives available.
The three main areas that we look at are:
DAS (Direct Attached Storage)
NAS (Network Attached Storage)
SAN (Storage Area Network)
