Business IT Infrastructure
What is a storage?
A device connected to computers and works as an addition to space, an extension. With that, it is even used to optimize applications, as it increases space and helps to have more usability. DAS also allows for backups and is widely used for large volumes of information. Because it is directly connected to the machine, the DAS can only be used by one user at a time.
Connected directly to the network and works almost as a separate system. In part, it is an operating system and is used as its own server. As for its use, it can be seen as a data manager, and can be used by several people, precisely because it is on the network, facilitating information management.
Dedicated storage networks, that is, they are directly connected to the network and have a better performance than the NAS. Naturally, it turns out to be one of the best options for any company. Its security is far superior to other models, in addition to having a faster speed.
Ideal model for your business
Choosing the type of storage and how it will be used within your company's process is an important task, which is why we do it with the necessary care to ensure it works. In practice, the first step is to understand the storage purpose your company is looking for. After all, as we have seen, a type can be more suitable for some functions than others, or even offer a better result just by its operating model. In this way, it is also necessary to have an idea of the necessary capacity, that is, how much your company intends to direct to it and how much your total load should be to handle this redirection.
The time needed and expected to process the data is also an important issue, as it directly influences the optimization aspect. Finally, we also analyze security and what level it is for the data that will be stored. Some data depends on more effective and calculated security, while others can be safe with less need for storage.
