An NAS device is a storage device connected to a network that allows storage and retrieval of data from a central location for authorised network users and varied clients. NAS devices are flexible and scale out, meaning that as you need additional storage, you can add to what you have. NAS is faster, less expensive and provides all the benefits and giving you complete control.

With a NAS, data is continually accessible, making it easy for employees to collaborate, respond to customers in a timely fashion, and promptly follow up on sales or other issues because information is in one place.

Ninth Dimension offer compact NAS appliances starting at traditional NAS servers for rack settings and high-end systems that expand into the multi-petabyte range. Ninth Dimension works with enterprise NAS product from Dell, NetApp, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, IBM, Hitachi Data Systems.

A unified storage architecture, which combines block-level and file-level access in a single storage system, promises to simplify deployment and movement of virtual machines (VMs) within the storage infrastructure. It also brings ease-of-management benefits to companies accustomed to managing systems from multiple vendors.

Increasing IT horsepower has brought on a deluge of data that is much richer was expected, such as rich content behind core business processes, or new types of data for analytics. All of this data eats storage, and it is apparent that the infrastructure needs a better approach to storage. Whether big or small, businesses are struggling beneath the amount and size of data that is scattered across MS SharePoint, file servers, web servers, MS Exchange servers, formal databases, accounting and ERP systems, and more.

An all-flash array is a storage array system that makes use of multiple solid state drives instead of spinning hard disk drives. All-flash arrays have advantages over conventional hard disk drives. They transfer data at a much faster rate than traditional disks, and thus AFAs allow organizations to function more efficiently.

An all-flash array is also known as a solid state array (SSA).

All-flash arrays are known to provide advanced data management services that are beyond the scope of spinning media. They consume less power and produce less heat. Thus, they do not need as much cooling as standard hard disk drives. Therefore, the need for air conditioning in data centers is reduced. All-flash arrays come incorporated with all the advanced features that an enterprise might need. Some of these features include replication, snapshots and data deduplication.

All-flash arrays are also easy to manage. There are no restrictions on the way logical volumes can be created. AFAs are physically smaller in size, and thus the overall rack count is smaller. However, proper backup and mitigation plans should be made. An unexpected drive failure would make it more difficult to recover data than with standard disks. Further, all-flash arrays cost a bit more, simply because flash is costlier than spinning media. But, their easy installation and maintenance are a few of the many compelling reasons for choosing all-flash arrays.

Scale-out storage is a network-attached storage (NAS) architecture in which the total amount of disk space can be expanded through the addition of devices in connected arrays with their own resources.

In a scale-out system, new hardware can be added and configured as the need arises. When a scale-out system reaches its storage limit, another array can be added to expand the system capacity. Scale-out storage can harness the extra storage added across arrays and also use added devices to increase network storage capacity, adding performance and addressing the need for additional storage.

Before scale-out storage became popular, enterprises often purchased storage arrays much larger than needed in order to ensure that plenty of disk space would be available for future expansion. If that expansion never occurred or requirements turned out to be less than anticipated, much of the originally purchased disk space went to waste. With a scale-out architecture, the initial investment can be more modest to begin with because it's not necessary to foresee long-term need -- if the storage requirements increase beyond expectations, new arrays can be added as needed, essentially without limit.

Cloud storage is defined as "the storage of data online in the cloud," wherein a company's data is stored in and accessible from multiple distributed and connected resources that comprise a cloud.

Cloud storage can provide the benefits of greater accessibility and reliability; rapid deployment; strong protection for data backup, archival and disaster recovery purposes; and lower overall storage costs as a result of not having to purchase, manage and maintain expensive hardware. There are many benefits to using cloud storage, however, cloud storage does have the potential for security and compliance concerns that are not associated with traditional storage systems.

A Cloud storage replication service is a managed service in which stored or archived data is duplicated in real time over a storage area network (SAN). Other terms for this type of service include file replication, data replication, and remote storage replication.

Cloud Storage Replication Is Not Backup

The options that you need to select when setting up an Cloud Storage service replication allow you to specify the durability and high-availability of your data, but they don't provide for data recovery to a point-in-time. In fact, it means that some of the bad things that can happen to data are more efficiently replicated to all copies. Backup is quite a separate issue.

Storage management software is used in everything from desktop computers to mainframes and includes products that work on limited or a single set of devices, as well as those that work universally and support a heterogeneous device set. Storage management software also makes use of hierarchical storage management (HSM) systems, which back up data from the main storage into slower, less expensive storage devices.

It provides important services like mirroring, replication, compression, traffic analysis, virtualization, security and disaster recovery.
