Access "Server-attached storage threatens SAN/NAS status quo"

Issue Overview

Storage magazine - May 2014 Vol. 13 No. 3

The term software-defined storage is tossed around a lot these days, but few people can pin down a definition for server-attached storage. We look at the various products that could fall under that umbrella, describe how they work, and suggest where and how they may be best deployed. Some of the approaches are reminiscent of storage virtualization, but there are more practical and less risky alternatives.

Data archivers do more than ensure that old data is stored away safely. These products can help reduce primary storage capacity significantly, which can make data protection a much more manageable task.

For the twelfth consecutive year, we present the results of our annual Storage Purchasing Intentions survey. The survey asks storage pros what they’re running now, what they plan to add and what technologies are being evaluated. See what nearly 600 storage pros are planning for 2014.
