Access "Networking server-based storage"

Published: 03 Oct 2013

Direct-attached or server-based storage is gaining renewed attention as emerging technologies offer easy ways to pool and share this highly scalable storage resource. In recent years, traditional storage systems have been challenged by alternate approaches to building storage arrays. Those traditional systems typically package storage controllers, disks, interfaces and firmware into a proprietary array whose components and inner workings are esoteric and usually only privy to the array vendor. Because those systems are costly, complex and lack openness, alternatives have emerged that have gained the attention of some storage shops. A changing computing landscape that increasingly favors mobile and cloud computing has also been an impetus for more open and cost-effective storage platforms to surface. Among the most promising alternatives to traditional storage array architectures are products that network directly attached server-based storage into a shared storage pool -- storage systems that are also known as networked server-based storage.
