Schools and universities require a secure and cost-effective way of storing multiple types of files. Businesses need to access crucial information whether it be deliverables, inventory data, or even employee handbooks. Read about Network Attached Storage, and how it can benefit any organization or business below.

It was our responsibility to deliver a high quality, reliable, secure & powerful data storage solution to our customer’s hyper specific demands. Custom Data Storage Case Study: Masy BioServices Masy BioServices is a Biotech company in Massachusetts and they’ve been using PrimeArray data storage products for decades. In 2020, Masy reached out to PrimeArray with a distinct goal to store massive amounts of 4k Security Footage on one dedicated server. It’s no secret that 4k video is extremely heavy in capacity, especially when multiple cameras are filming at once. Their security requirements made it necessary to store this information for a number of years. Ultimately, their main goal was to store high volumes of 4K footage for multiple years in order to maximize their security measures. Traditionally, most data storage units are created with harddrive slots on the front end of the device. We decided to create fully custom “drop in” harddrive slots on the top of the device instead of the front. Since this particular unit is designed to hold massive amounts of data, we included 50 total 14TB harddrives. In addition, Masy was able to save tons of shelf space on their server racks due to the “drop in harddrive slot” feature. There’s close to 600TB of storage in this compact 4u unit. Digital forensics investigators examine and image a ton of data and information on a daily basis. They need the necessary and capable tools in order to complete their investigations properly, on time and efficiently. With PrimeArray digital forensics tools and workstations, you can read and store basically any amount of data. Our storage devices can hold up to 10PB (petabytes) of data, which is equivalent to 10,000 Terabytes. No matter the size of your project, we can help you with handling virtually any amount of data. PrimeArray forensic systems give you the processing power, storage, integrated write-blocking, reliability and proven support to process cases in any setting.  Testimonial – Masy Bioservices We’ve worked with PrimeArray for a long time and they always meet our criteria. Masy has bought two of these specific units and plan on buying a third. In the past, we’ve chosen to work with PrimeArray for their reliability and responsiveness. The ability to have access to firmware changes is another feature that benefits us tremendously. QNAP, Nimble Storage & HP are amongst other storage brands that we’ve used and PrimeArray is on par with both of them. Greg Masiello, Security Manager

NAS vs SAN: The Differences & Similarities

, we must understand their individual structure and uses. What is NAS? Network Attached Storage is a centralized location where you can store, share and access data from all of the devices on your network. Simply put, a NAS is a storage device that is used for storing data. Typically, a NAS is a box device consisting of multiple harddrives in RAID configurations for redundancy. A NAS will also have a network interface card that will directly attach to a switch or router, so that the data can be accessed from multiple devices over a given network. NAS devices come in many sizes with different capabilities. They can be used by individuals, small to medium sized businesses and enterprise level organizations. One drawback of NAS is that it has a single point of failure, so if one component in the NAS renders it inoperable, other devices will not be able to store or share data until it is working again. What is SAN? Storage Area Networks are high speed networks that store and provide high speed access to large amounts of data. Typically, a SAN is used for data storage. SAN’s usually consist of multiple disc arrays, switches, and servers. Because there is more than one device, a SAN is usually fault tolerant and will not be rendered inoperable due to having multiple disc arrays and components. The moving parts just mentioned are interconnected using a fibre channel. As an alternative to fibre channels, some SANs use iSCSI instead. In theory, if a switch, server, or disc array go down… the data can still be accessed. When a server accesses data from a SAN, it accesses the data as if it were a local hard drive. Operating systems recognize a SAN as a local attached harddrive, rather than a shared network drive. SAN’s are usually more sought after by larger organizations because they are highly scalable. Adding more storage space can easily be done without an interruption on the network. The Differences SAN’s are not affected by network traffic, because they are basically their own networks. On the downside, SANs are usually more expensive than NAS. NAS devices are usually easier to maintain, while SANs usually require more administration. NAS files are accessed as network attached files, while SANs access data as if it were a local harddrive. NAS devices are more susceptible to network bottlenecks, while SAN devices are not affected by network traffic. Lastly, NAS devices backup frequently and take snapshots, while SAN devices require more storage for backups.
