The Value of Network Storage Servers

IT architects in businesses large and small are using network-attached storage (NAS) solutions to help manage the rising tide of data that is inundating data centers. Network storage servers offer scale-out capacity that allows IT teams to increase storage volumes as needed while delivering the performance that organizations need to gain the most value from business data.

For IT departments seeking the highest capacity, most power-efficient, and most reliable network storage servers on the market, Aberdeen provides a family of NAS storage solutions that check every box.

Managing Rising Data Volumes with Network Storage Servers

Technologies such as social media, streaming video, Internet search, Big Data and especially the Internet of Things (IoT) are creating unparalleled amounts of business data. IT architects are increasingly pressed to find solutions for storing data cost-efficiently, and for enabling businesses to use it effectively to find and engage customers, streamline and optimize business processes, identify market opportunities, and benefit the business in a myriad of other ways.

Network storage servers offer a promising solution for data centers that need solutions for scale-out storage. A NAS system is a file-level storage architecture that can be easily deployed by simply adding a NAS hard drive via a TCP/IP network, usually Ethernet. Network storage servers enable multiple users and heterogeneous client devices to access a centralized pool of storage. A network-attached storage device excels at handling unstructured data such as video, audio, text file, websites, and documents, rather than databases.

With network storage servers, organizations can rely on:

  • Enhanced performance. Because network storage architecture moves responsibility for serving files to NAS servers, other devices on the system can realize increases in performance.
  • Scale-out capacity. Network storage servers can easily be added to an array of servers that has reached capacity.
  • Straightforward deployment and management. A network-attached storage device can be connected easily to the LAN and provides a simplified management interface.
  • Advanced features: Network storage servers are typically delivered with simplified scripts or preinstalled operating systems that minimize the time required for deployment.

FAQs: What are Network Storage Servers?

What are Network Storage Servers?

Network storage servers, or network-attached storage (NAS) devices, are servers attached to a network that are dedicated solely to providing data storage. Network storage servers enable multiple users and clients to store and access data from a centralized location.

What do Network Storage Servers Offer the Data Center?

Network storage servers help to enhance system performance by taking on the responsibility for serving files so that other devices are free to manage other tasks.
