Network Attached Storage (NAS)

CDS Office Technologies can facilitate the planning and design a Network Attached Storage (NAS) storage system for your organization. We have the expertise to provide high-quality solutions for storing, sharing and protecting business-critical data that is reliable, scalable and affordable even for the smallest office environment.

NAS unified architecture solves numerous data management problems with a single system, making capacity management, access, backup, restore and disaster recovery issues obsolete.

Storage Area Network (SAN)

Like most organizations, your storage needs continue to grow and you want the most benefit from your investment. A storage area network (SAN) solution, along with virtualization, is one method to streamline your server environment and maximize your investment dollars.

SAN solutions are optimized for database and email applications, as well as, virtualized servers. Using a growth based, all-inclusive pricing model and intuitive storage management software, the SAN is perfect for the budget conscious. And, with the ever-growing need for redundancy and disaster recovery solutions, a SAN can eliminate single points of failure across your environment with an innovative approach to data replication that reduces risk without driving up costs.The SAN clustering architecture will allow you to scale capacity and performance linearly without incurring downtime, performance bottlenecks, or forcing expensive upgrades. Sharing storage simplifies administration and increases flexibility, since cables and storage devices do not have to be physically moved to shift storage requirements from one server to another.One of the more substantial benefits of the SAN environment is the ability to permit servers to boot from the SAN itself. This allows for a quick and easy replacement of faulty servers and the SAN can be reconfigured so the replacement server can use the same logical unit number of the faulty server.Establishing a SAN environment is viewed as one of the more effective disaster recovery strategies in place today. The SAN could span to a distant location containing a secondary storage array and enable storage replication, either implemented by disk array controllers by server software, or by specialized SAN devices.Implementing a SAN infrastructure will help your organization develop storage consolidation methods and facilitate data sharing, server clustering and provide enhanced backup strategies across various host server platforms.

Data Storage

By centralizing data from your local systems into a single storage device, your organization will reduce data management support issues and optimize reliability. Additional storage capacity can be simply added with no downtime and NAS supports both file sharing and server applications like Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server® or VMware®.

Data Sharing

Quickly and easily access data no matter where you are – from multiple computer sites, on the road or in a remote field office location. Safely download files to multiple users simultaneously in Windows, Macintosh or Linux/UNIX environments without email or FTP frustrations. The NAS remote feature is as simple as “drag-and-drop” to a secure connection between any computer and your NAS environment without firewall, VPN or awkward Web-based remote access hassles.

Data Protection & Backup/Recovery

Every organization understands the value of data and that lost information means lost revenue. Designing a secure environment allows your firm to have multiple layers of protection built into every NAS – including drive fault tolerance, online backups and secure offsite replication to another NAS system. NAS has significantly changed backup and recovery procedures and offers a complete replacement to tape storage, making offsite replication and backup an affordable and reliable solution for all business applications large or small.
