SAN Data Recovery Services from an Industry Leader
When your storage needs to tend toward high speed and large size, Storage Area Networks are the logical choice versus Network Area Storage, or NAS, configurations. The key difference between these two is that the storage model for NAS is file based, whereas SAN utilizes a block based model.
Versus a NAS solution, SAN offers higher data availability, efficient and flexible hardware deployment, backup efficiency and storage virtualization. Configuring a SAN with RAID arrays further improves reliability. However, neither SAN nor NAS has a zero probability of data loss.
