Storage Solutions
The Viglen Storage Group brings together a number of leading manufactures and with the testing, design, implementation and support skills that are in place we can provide some of the most advanced and robust storage solutions available.
 

DAS, SAN and NAS have dominated the storage market as separate technologies for the past few years and certain benefits are derived from each. They each have advantages but none alone delivers the combination of functionality that businesses truly need. Recent developments have provided the opportunity to combine all of these technologies and assets in multi-vendor network environments. Complete network storage solutions combine the best of all worlds and delivers superior performance at greatly reduced cost.

Network Storage Solution Illustration

One of the fundamental benefits of deploying a networked storage solution is that it is designed to integrate with, and operate in, totally open and multi-platform, heterogeneous environments — regardless of hardware, software, operating systems, applications or infrastructure. This approach also ensures that legacy systems and devices can be easily integrated and managed in the new storage environment. The VSG was set up with the intention of providing full network storage solutions but with a breadth of knowledge and years of experience we can tailor a solution to meet almost any storage problem. If you require a simple 1TB DAS system or a single tape drive tape autoloader to backup your existing storage then don't delay — call us today.

Network Attached Storage (NAS)

A NAS solution involves the connection of processing and storage devices directly to the network, which are typically configured as file-servers accessed through the high-speed LAN. NAS provides file intelligence and is an efficient way for an organisation to share information and simplify its server and storage environment.

The Benefits of NAS:
The Problems with NAS:

Direct Attached Storage (DAS)

This is where a storage device, such as a hard disk or tape drive, connects directly to a server. Although adding DAS is a relatively low cost and easy task there are problems associated with it. As more and more storage/server resources are added to meet demand, a DAS environment creates a fragmented network and a management burden for administrators as well as an inefficient utilisation of resources.

The Benefits of DAS:
The Problems with DAS:

These limitations are one of the reasons why organisations are looking to networked storage to cater for current and future demand.

Storage Area Network (SAN)

A SAN allows an organisation to consolidate storage for block-based and Database applications and delivers significant benefits to the business.
