Is It Time to Modernize NAS?

Network Attached Storage (NAS) systems are the cornerstone of most organization’s storage architectures. For decades they’ve replaced legacy Windows or Linux file servers to provide SMB and NFS access from a single system that can support many more users. But NAS systems now fall short in a variety of ways. First, they have very little data intelligence, meaning that can’t identify old data and move it to a storage device designed for cost effective, long term preservation. Second, they assume that users are still accessing data like they did a decade ago, from a single location and single system.

The time has come to modernize NAS so that it meets the realities of data growth, the demands for data retention and the mobility of the modern workforce. Watch me, George Crump, Lead Analyst at Storage Switzerland for this ChalkTalk Video on how to modernize NAS.
