SAN – Block and Direct Attached Systems (subset of what’s available from these vendors)

These systems connect to your servers directly or via a switch(es) using fiber channel (FC), serial attached SCSI (SAS), and ethernet (iSCSI) protocals and associated cables. Actual system performance depends upon the select system and associated configured controller cache and the number and type of drives selected. Drive options include solid state devices (SDD), FLASH, 15K, 10K, and 7.2K SAS.  Storage capacity, scale and expandability vary. Only HDS and IBM offer storage virtualization options.

Very large scale and very high performance (VSP G1000) to Entry Level (HUS 110)

Large scale and high performance (SC8000 ) to Entry Level (EL PS4100 and MD Series)

High scale and performance (IS 17500) to Entry Level JBOD (IS 1116)

NAS – File Access (NFS, CIFS/SMB, HTTP) Systems (subset of what’s available from these vendors)

These systems connect to your servers directly or via a switch(es) using 1 GB or 10 GB ethernet or using 40 GB infiband protocals and associated cables. Actual system performance depends upon the select system and associated configured controller cache and the number and type of drives selected. Drive options include solid state devices (SDD), FLASH, 15K, 10K, and 7.2K SAS.  Storage capacity, scale and expandability vary.

Very large scale and very high performance (HNAS 4100) to mid-range (HNAS 3080)  for attachment to G1000 and HUS Series

Good scale and performance (FluidFS) for attachment to Compellent and Equallogic Series

High density storage servers providing NAS protocols
