NAS vs. SANS: Safeguard Your Business From Catastrophic Data Loss
Is Your Business Protected With the Right Data Storage Solution?
It’s a risk every business faces. It arrives without warning. But one thing is for certain. When systems fail, the loss of mission critical business data can be staggering.
Catastrophic Data Loss can occur for variety of reasons. What can you do to defend your company? Simple. Be ready. It is in the best interest of any business to have a Disaster Recover Plan firmly in place. An effective plan should include a proven Data Storage Solution, which provides companies with info-backup in the event of failure. Two of the most effective data storage solutions are NAS and SANS. Each offers powerful protection to a full range of businesses.
NAS or Network Attached Storage consists of both hard disks and specialized software. It is perfectly-suited to smaller businesses seeking an easy and budget-friendly method of attaining speedy data access. Businesses that implement NAS typically see sizable gains in both performance and productivity. High on the list of NAS advantages are its value and user-friendliness. The typical system is a breeze to install, deploy, and manage, even if an IT staff is not on board.
For larger businesses and organizations, SANS or Storage Area Networks offer heroic protection against data failure. One of the high points of SANS is speed. Thanks to a sophisticated, fiber optic-based Fiber Channel, the network sends data zipping like greased lightning through an interconnection of workstations, mainframes, servers, data storage systems and other peripherals, even at long-distances. This makes SANS the perfect choice for banks, health insurance entities, and any other organizations with a large employee population transmitting data round the clock.
