Storage Server Solutions
Data storage is becoming the standard in records keeping and daily business operations. Today, the world is trending towards a more ecological, green movement, where there is less demand for paper goods and an increasing demand for paperless digital data storage. With increased demand for digital data comes the challenging issues of data management and its limitations on energy consumption, bandwidth, and connectivity. The biggest problems for companies are the data storage itself and data backup issues.
Here at HABEY, we can make everything about Data Storage easy for any application. We have server solutions for corporate industries, offices and even home networks. The data explosion is leading to larger more sophisticated and complex information storage environments, those which are increasingly challenging to manage. HABEY has developed reliable eco-friendly large capacity storage devices to help keep overall cost of data storage low.
Benefits with HABEY
HABEY is always focused on reliability and power consumption to make sure our storage devices are the best in the industry. With high energy-consuming servers, enterprises not only waste cost on energy and utility bills but also must invest considerably in cooling equipment to keep the servers from overheating to prevent data loss or server damage.
Unlike the traditional storage devices, that take up floor space and have poor heat dissipation, the compact ESC series data storage device is not only much smaller, but powerful as well. With the convenient and modular design,the ESC data server has the most integrated flexibility and scalability, reaching the optimum balance between maximum computing performance and minimum power consumption. Therefore, the ESC series data server is the perfect solution for web hosting, data center, PC Clustering, and any mission-critical tasks. Other benefits:
- Supports a Full Range of Low Power CPUs
- Great Energy and Space Saving
- Hot swappable 3.5” SATA2 /SAS hard drives
- Smart Power saving features
Direct Attached Storage (DAS)
Direct Attached Storage (DAS) is a data storage system in which data storage devices are directly connected with the server through an Internet Small Computer System Interface (ISCSI) without a storage network in between. A DAS system is mainly used to differentiate non-networked storage from SAN and NAS.
For stable quality and high performance, the DAS storage array has been widely applied to mass database, data application, video editing, medical imaging, file server and DVR storage. A DAS data storage system is most commonly used in applications such as a Security Surveillance system.
Network Attached Storage (NAS)
Network Attached Storage (NAS) is file-level computer data storage system that integrates independent data to mass and centralized database for visiting. It’s a data-oriented storage device which can separate a storage device with server to systematically manage data and increase bandwidth, improve performance and lower cost. Compared to DAS server storage, NAS costs less but works more effectively.
The key difference between NAS and DAS systems is DAS is just an extension to an existing server and may or may not be networked. NAS is an easy, self-contained solution for sharing files over a network. Also, NAS is not as customizeable (hardware/software) as a general-purpose DAS server.
- NAS works effectively in long distance data transmission
- NAS device is compatible with different networks. NAS host computer, clients and other devices could be distributed in the enterprise network.
- NAS supports usual OS, ie NFS of UNIX, CIFS of Windows NT.
The NAS technology could not only meet the present storage demand of various fields but also can configure for future expansion. Developed with HDD and RAID technology, NAS product becomes more and more stable and cost-effective. Presently, NAS product is mainly applied to ISP/ASP, CAD/CAM, SME, video editing, government, hospital and education fields.
Storage Area Network (SAN)
A Storage Area Network (SAN) is a dedicated network which only provides block-based data storage. SANs are normally used for disk arrays, tape libraries and optical jukeboxes, accessible to servers so the devices appear locally attached to an operating system (OS). A SAN has its own network of storage devices not accessible through the local area network by other devices. Basically a SAN is recognized as a disk on an OS whereas a NAS appears as a file server to the client OS.
If you would need both systems, a NAS and SAN can be combined to form a hybrid system in which both file-level and block-level protocols are provided.
