  • network-attached storage (NAS)

    Definition: Learn what network-attached storage is and how it provides file-based data storage services to other devices on a network through a standard Ethernet connection. 

  • primary storage (main storage or primary memory)

    Definition: In the enterprise, primary storage holds data that is in active use. 

  • direct-attached storage (DAS)

    Direct-attached storage (DAS) is computer storage that is directly attached to one computer or server and is not, without special support, directly accessible to other ones. 

  • delta differencing

    Delta differencing is an incremental approach to backup that only backs up blocks that have changed after the first full backup. The differences are recorded in files called deltas. 

  • auxiliary storage

    Auxiliary storage is all addressable data storage that is not currently in a computer's main storage or memory. 

  • Clustered network-attached storage (clustered NAS)

    A clustered NAS system is a distributed file system that runs concurrently on multiple NAS nodes.
