Click here to download now
Overview: Sun StorEdge Network-Attached Storage (NAS) systems are designed to add storage to network and allow for file sharing without having to provide other server-centric activities, such as e-mail or file management. NAS hard disks are set up with their own network addresses rather than being attached to the central computer that serves applications to network users. Removing storage access and its management from the department server reduces competition for processor resources, thereby enhancing both application performance and file serving. This paper describes how Sun StorEdge NAS technology can provide efficiencies in storage utilization, management, and costs.
