Storage - NAS

  • Network Attached Storage (NAS) - Provides storage across the ethernet network utilizing NFS and SMB protocols.

    • Network File System (NFS)
    • Server Message Block (SMB)
  • NAS Storage provides a mechanism for multiple machines to have simultaneous access to programs, applications, and data

  • NAS storage is managed and maintained by the Mt Xia Storage Management Group

  • NAS Storage is utilized by servers running AIX, Solaris, Linux, Windows

  • Access to NAS Storage is dependent upon business and application requirements

  • The architectural direction for NAS is non-production environments

  • Mt Xia currently utilizes NAS for both application and database storage.
