An affordable alternative for data storage and retrieval
A SAN (Storage Area Network) is a network specifically dedicated to transporting data for storage and retrieval. SAN architectures give you a robust alternative to storing data on disks directly attached to servers or storing data on Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices which are connected through general purpose networks.
SAN solutions have become increasingly affordable and popular. This technology simplifies storage administration, aids flexibility since cables and storage devices do not have to be physically moved to shift storage from one server to another and tend to enable more effective disaster recovery processes.
SAN’s were traditionally connected over Fibre Channel (FC) Networks but many of the latest products connect via iSCSI (Internet Small Computer Systems Interface) which is a SCSI variant.
We partner with the best of breed, well known suppliers of SAN solutions. But we have also forged links with alternative bespoke vendors. Their solutions will give you the competitive edge and do just as good a job as the mainstream products but at a fraction of the price.
Our independent, objective guidance will enable you to choose the right SAN solution to suit your budgets and needs, now and in the future.
