Business technology demands increase each day. Decision makers need today’s best options for their Storage Area Network and deciding on the best option requires research. Here, we will look at “What is a SAN?” and deep dive into secure data storage, including software and hardware considerations. If you prefer to speak with our data storage consulting, department contact us at 251-243-0043.
According to the TechTarget article “What is a Storage Area Network? The availability and accessibility of storage are critical concerns for enterprise computing. Traditional direct-attached disk deployments within individual servers can be a simple and inexpensive option for many enterprise applications, but the disks — and the vital data those disks contain — are tied to the physical server across a dedicated interface, such as SAS. Modern enterprise computing often demands a much higher level of organization, flexibility, and control. These needs drove the evolution of the storage area network (SAN).”
That is where Nfina SAN storage solutions come to play. Our High-Availability SAN storage solutions are the foundation of business continuity plans, ensuring mission-critical data is always available. Nfina systems are fully redundant and fault tolerant to 99.999% uptime and include 4-way mirroring for increased data reliability and disaster recovery. Whether you are looking for entry-level SAN storage or enterprise SAN storage, data storage consulting, 24/7 US tech support with troubleshooting, and a standard five-year warranty are included with your SAN purchase or lease.
Nfina offers a variety of Fibre Channel and iSCSI SAN storage solutions. Our entry-level SAN storage with sixteen bays can be configured as an HHD or SSD SAN Storage solution. Our 8224R, enterprise SAN solution, sports forty-eight all flash drives perfect for a high-availability active/active architecture. You can also configure select appliances with NVMe, SSDs, and HDDs for a hybrid SAN storage solution.
Flexibility, expandability, and control are the cornerstone of our SAN storage solutions. Whether you are a small business migrating to a data center or a large enterprise needing NVMe SAN storage in multiple locations, Nfina SANs will grow with your business. Regardless of the model, one unique component that sets us apart from our competition is our management operating system.
Nfina-Store data management operating system, recommended for our SAN storage solutions, is easy to use, allowing users to create and centrally manage SAN arrays and clusters and create unlimited snapshots and clones at a preferred pace. For configuration assistance, our setup includes Nfina’s data storage consulting team. Most importantly, in the event of a natural disaster or ransomware attack, our SAN backup protection provides a rollback function, restoring data to a safe point before the incident.
Nfina SAN devices using Nfina-Store storage management software provide fast data storage access by only writing data that has changed rather than continually updating the entire SAN storage. Our SANs use unique tiered storage and caching system that prioritizes the most used data, making it quickly accessible. Only writing data changes allows users to back up their on-premise SANs to off-premise SANs in hours, not days. As an added security measure in our Nfina-Store software, our server SANs are copy-on-write meaning you can only write data to the SAN backup. Therefore, the data will avoid interception by would-be thieves.
For SAN/DAS storage expansion, Nfina’s SAN Storage Area Network can connect to multiple DAS devices. Nfina JBODs come in twelve or twenty-four-bay systems. Up to 14 JBOD devices can connect to a SAN solution expanding your system to 336 additional drives.
Can a SAN and NAS be used together to create a robust network? A typical SAN NAS example would be Nfina’s Hybrid Cloud Solutions. In this scenario, the NAS would be your on-premise server, and your SAN/s would be off-premise storage in the cloud. As mentioned above, only changed data is backed up to your SAN, and snapshots occur at your desired time frame. Our Hybrid Cloud Solutions come with Nfina-View software that provides monitoring of all edge and cloud data storage pools in your network via a unified management control pane. If an outage or failure occurs, Nfina-View rolls back your systems to before the event occurred. Our Hybrid Cloud is a Hardware-as-a-Solution (HaaS) and Software-as-a-Solution (SaaS) that provides rapid Disaster Recovery, geo-redundancy, business continuity, and 24/7 data storage consulting and tech support.
