PTS’ IT Storage & Data Protection Consulting
Services analyzes client network attached storage structures
needed to support rapid file storage growth, driven by rich
media, document and backup files and email.
A Network Attached Storage (NAS) solution
can help address changing file serving needs and reduce cost of
ownership by enabling simplified management, better resource
utilization, and centralized growth and data protection. PTS
surveys existing network attached storage devices and makes
recommendations to improve their structure or upgrade devices
based upon client needs.
PTS also considers the appropriate use of a
network attached storage solution in conjunction with or rather
than storage area networks. NAS provides both storage and a file
system. This is often contrasted with SAN (Storage Area
Network), which provides only block-based storage and leaves
file system concerns on the "client" side.
When designing a storage or back-up solution
for clients PTS considers various items when designing a network
attached storage solution:
- Systems utilization and virtualization rates
- Data types and structures
- Network Cabling Management
- Storage monitoring & management techniques
- Data protection systems architecture
