San Francisco Bay Area Network Storage Solutions
Historically, datacenters first relied upon Directly Attached Storage (DAS) with disks dedicated to hosts. Network Attached Storage (NAS) addressed the inflexibility of DAS and allowed multiple hosts to share storage. However, NAS use the LAN to connect hosts to storage which can introduce performance limitations. Storage Area Networks (SAN) are dedicated to providing dedicated high performance block storage access to hosts and enable advanced technologies like replication and snapshots.
