“An introduction to network-attached storage and storage area

“It seems that RAID isn’t enough to satisfy the growing
corporate need for storage accessibility and reliability. RAID,
which began in SCSI-based systems, is now being used in other disk
protocol systems such as Fibre Channel as well. This breaks the
limitations imposed by SCSI on both number of physical drive units
and distance separation. Furthermore, vendors have found ways to
take storage directly to the network with systems like
network-attached storage and storage area networks. Rawn follows up
last month’s column about RAID storage technology with this look at
some of the newer technologies and storage systems available for
your network.”
