Storage Technology Definitions

  • M

    Memory Stick

    Developed by Sony, the Memory Stick is a digital data storage technology with up to 10 times the storage capacity of a 3.5 diskette.

  • Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (Microsoft VSS)

    Microsoft VSS is a Windows Server feature used for backing up and restoring LUNs and individual files.

  • Millipede

    Millipede is a nano-storage prototype developed by IBM that can store data at a density of a trillion bits per square inch: 20 times more than any currently available magnetic storage medium.

  • mirror site

    A mirrored site is a website or set of files on a server that has been copied to another server so that the site or files are available from more than one place.

  • MozyEnterprise

    MozyEnterprise is EMC's subscription-based online data backup service for business. (Continued...)

  • MRAM (magnetoresistive random access memory)

    MRAM (magnetoresistive random access memory) is a way to store data bits using magnetic states instead of the electrical charges used by dynamic random access memory (DRAM).

  • MrSID (Multi-resolution Seamless Image Database)

    MrSID (Multi-resolution Seamless Image Database) is an image compressor, viewer, and file format for extremely large raster graphics images.

  • multipathing (SAN multipathing)

    Multipathing, also called SAN multipathing or I/O multipathing, is the establishment of multiple physical routes between a server and the storage device that supports it. 

  • multiprotocol storage

    Multiprotocol storage, also known as unified or federated storage, supports protocols traditionally associated with SAN block-based and NAS file-based storage in a single device.

  • multisession CD

    A multisession CD is a recordable CD format (like a CD-R) that allows the recording of a compact disk to be conducted in more than one recording session.

  • N

    N_Port ID virtualization (NPIV)

    N_Port ID virtualization (NPIV) is a technology that allows a single host bus adaptor (HBA) called an "N_Port" to register multiple World Wide Port Names (WWPNs) and N_Port identification numbers.

  • NAND flash memory

    NAND flash memory is a type of non-volatile storage technology that does not require power to retain data.

  • nano-storage

    Nano-storage is a nanotechnology approach to storage that seeks to radically increase storage capacities through a variety of technologies, and, ultimately, to replace current storage media with extremely high-density media and devices.

  • NAS accelerator

    A NAS accelerator (network-attached storage accelerator) is a printed circuit card that offloads TCP/IP processing from a microprocessor.

  • NAS Appliance

    NAS appliances are commodity hardware that includes their own dedicated storage disks and RAID that can easily scale as more capacity is needed.
