  Network Storage Technologies

What type of network storage is best? For meeting strategic needs, enterprises are turning to a variety of storage types.

Traditional types of consolidated network storage include:

  • Traditional Mid-range storage, typically a Fibre Channel storage array from a Tier One storage vendor (IBM, HP, EMC, HDS).
  • A Fibre Channel or iSCSI enterprise array from a Tier Two storage innovator (Xiotech, Compellent, 3Par, NetApp).
  • An Enterprise Network Attached storage solution (NetApp, EMC Celerra, IBM N-Series, Isilon Systems, Pillar Data).
  • A Clustered iSCSI-only solution (Dell/EqualLogic, HP LeftHand Networks).
  • Disk Storage for disk-to-disk backup or archive (DataDomain, Exagrid, Nexan SataBeast).
