Data is growing at explosive rates in today's businesses. Big Data is increasing storage demands in a way that could only be imagined just a few short years ago.

With the advent of the Internet, Big Data, corporate intranets, e-mail, e-commerce, business-to-business (B2B), ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), Customer Resource Management (CRM), data warehousing, CAD/CAM, rich media streaming, voice/video/data convergence, and many other real time applications, the demands on the enterprise storage capacity has grown by leaps and bounds.

Storage network technology has developed in the following three main configurations: Direct Attached Storage (DAS), Network Attached Storage (NAS), and Storage Area Networks (SAN).


  • Directly Attached Storage
  • Usually disk or tape
  • Directly attached by a cable to the computer processor.(The hard disk drive inside a PC or a tape drive attached to a single server are simple types of DAS.) I/O requests (also called protocols or commands)
  • Access devices directly


  • Network Attached Storage
  • A NAS device (“appliance”), usually an integrated processor plus disk storage, is attached to a TCP/IP-based network (LAN or WAN), and accessed using specialized file access/file sharing protocols.
  • File requests received by a NAS are translated by the internal processor to device requests.


  • Storage Area Network
  • Storage resides on a dedicated network
  • I/O requests access devices directly
  • Uses Fiber Channel media, providing an any-to-any connection for processors and storage on that network
  • Ethernet media using an I/O protocol called ISCSI is emerging in

Cloud computing is a sharp departure from the status quo. Today most companies own their software and hardware and keep them “on premise” in data centers and other specialized facilities. With cloud computing, in contrast, companies lease their digital assets, and their employees don’t know the location of the computers, data centers, applications, and databases that they’re using. These resources are just “in the cloud” somewhere.

To oversimplify just a bit, those offerings can be divided into three categories: raw computing capacity, computers that are ready for software, and software itself.

The first of these, called Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), is the most basic; it’s a server or servers out there in the cloud, or a bunch of storage capacity or bandwidth.

The second tier is called Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). This is a cloud-based platform that companies can use to develop their custom applications or write software that integrates with existing applications.

Software-as-a-Service (SAAS), the third category, is the largest and most mature part of the cloud. It’s an application or suite of applications that resides in the cloud instead of on a user’s hard drive or in a data center.

In the public cloud, you get quick access to compute, storage, app hosting and more — as much as you need, when you need it. The hardware is located outside of your data center and is shared with other customers, which keeps prices low.
Spin up a server in under a minute — and spin it down when you’re done.
Low Cost
Since public cloud infrastructure is shared with many customers, so you pay only for the server resources that you require.
Most public clouds allow you to add networking, storage, databases and more, with just a click.

Get the agility, scalability and efficiency of the public cloud, with the greater levels of control and security of a single-tenant, dedicated environment. It can be hosted on-site at your own data center or at a service provider’s data center.
Deliver features faster by providing your users with on-demand, self-service access to infrastructure.
Get the enhanced security of dedicated, physically isolated network, compute and storage layers.
Customise the dedicated compute, storage and networking components to best suit your needs.
Gain performance advantages over public cloud, with dedicated resources for your business.

The public cloud’s pay-as-you-go scalability is ideal for heavy or unpredictable traffic - and can reduce IT costs.
When you need enhanced security and ultimate control for business-critical apps and data, incorporate a private cloud.
With single-tenant dedicated servers, you get ultra-fast performance, security and reliability, on bare metal machines.

Multi-cloud” describes an environment that relies on multiple clouds — such as OpenStack®, Microsoft® Azure® or AWS.

For instance, you may be running a workload that requires large pools of storage and networking resources on a private cloud, such as OpenStack.

At the same time, you may have a workload that needs to scale up or down quickly on a public cloud, such as Microsoft Azure or AWS. Each workload is running on the ideal cloud, but now you have multiple clouds to manage.
