External RAID Storage Print
October 2004
There are many approaches for expanding the storage capacity of a server or network, such as with additional disks in a server or externally on the local area network. The former approach is called DAS for direct attached storage and the latter approach is NAS for network attached storage. DAS is normally internal because external products have previously been expensive and limited in functionality. Compucon now announces a new external DAS product to address the gap in the market. This unit uses low cost IDE hard disks and provides various storage features such as “data redundancy” and “data stripping” on top of expansion of storage outside the server chassis. It is suitable for storage of reference files and data rather than for transactional information. More info (link to be fixed).
