We see a strong market direction toward high-performing NVMe storage devices for data-intensive applications that deliver the performance benefits of direct-attached storage
while enabling these SSDs to be shared over standard networks throughout the enterprise, said Denise Shiffman, chief product officer at DriveScale.
storage options are available, including Direct-Attached Storage
The 8-bay, direct-attached storage
enclosure offers reliable, speedy connectivity with two Thunderbolt ports that allows for daisy-chaining of other peripherals, offering great scalability.
It facilitates access to files through mobile devices that are connected to NAS appliances and offers high-performance storage compared to DAS (direct-attached storage
) and external hard drives.
The network-attached storage segment grew by 10.9 percent, while storage area network and direct-attached storage
increased by only 1.6 percent, according to Gartner.
This transaction would bring a highly complementary set of capabilities to Seagate, significantly expand our consumer product offerings, add a premium-branded direct-attached storage
line, strengthen our network-attached storage business line and enhance our capabilities in software development," said Steve Luczo, Seagate chairman, president and CEO.
Fiber channel continued to be mainstream in the second-quarter by generating some 59.7% of overall revenue, followed by network-attached storage (NAS) with 19.1% share, as well as ICSCI (Internet Small Computer System), DAS (Direct-attached storage
), SAS (Serial Attached SCSI), SAN (storage area network), and ESCON (Enterprise System Connection Architecture) /FICON (Fiber connectivity).
Available in capacities of 100GB, 200GB, and 400GB, the MKx001GRZB family is designed for ease of integration into new or existing tier-0 enterprise storage systems and designs, including servers, direct-attached storage
and network-attached storage.
It adds rich media-handling capabilities, cloud-friendliness and the ability to interchangeably use the NAS storage medium as direct-attached storage
without losing metadata.
The LSI(TM) SAS 9200 series HBAs, based on the LSISAS2008 6Gb/s SAS controller IC, offer new levels of performance and scalability for internal and external direct-attached storage
deployments using SATA and SAS disk drives.
Earlier this month, the company announced that its IOV switches support Ethernet, SAS/SATA and Fibre Channel, providing servers with connectivity to local area networks (LAN), and the storage infrastructures, including direct-attached storage
(DAS) and storage area networks (SAN).
