Network Attached Storage (NAS)If you need the power of Network Attached Storage (NAS) unleashed, Nth Generation can help you share your files seamlessly.
Nth Generation has worked with our respected partners for years towards providing our clients with every tool available for improving your overall IT performance. One of the tools we’ve discovered to be of significant assistance is the strategy of Network Attached Storage (NAS).
A network-attached storage (NAS) device is a server that is dedicated to file sharing. NAS allows more hard disk storage space to be added to a network that already utilizes servers without shutting them down for maintenance and upgrades. With a NAS device, storage is not an integral part of the server. Instead, in this storage-centric design, the server still handles all of the processing of data but a NAS device delivers the data to the user. A NAS device does not need to be located within the server but can exist anywhere in a LAN and can be made up of multiple networked NAS devices.
Nth Generation can provide you with a NAS that automatically discovers your NAS manager storage resources, collects a wide range of NAS manager capacity, performance, and configuration details, and graphically maps your integrated SAN and NAS topology. IP network connections to NAS clients, as well as fibre channel connections to fabric switches and storage systems for cases where NAS manager filers are serving as NAS gateways, are represented in a single, unified view.
Powerful path and dependency management capabilities enable you to quickly predict the impact of NAS manager events on your business, while the real-time performance monitoring and current and historical capacity management features enable you to maximize performance and utilization. Our partner-driven NAS manager also extends the full range of role-based security, reporting, and policy-based automation capabilities of storage essentials to your NAS manager storage resources.
