Hi friends, at my current work they need a solution to store really a huge amount of data. It could be more 8tb. Most importantly they are working with SAS and retrieving data is become really hard for them. I know servers and databases are a good solution but no budget for it. Could you please guide me over what could be the best solution to store the date and retrieve a little faster? Please do revert ASAP. Thanks Deepa

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This is a pretty wide open question.

Besides your requirement (quick retrieval), budget plays an important part.
Since you seem to have no budget at all, you would need to depend on open source NAS products. This would be a cheaper solution, provided you have reasonable hard disks.

    You've eliminated the only reasonable solution elements, both servers and databases, so there doesn't seem to be an answer. Databases can be installed without technically using a "server" as such. But 8TB of data needs a DBMS if you're ever going to have meaningful, timely data insertion and retrieval. Now, the DBMS might be PostgreSQL, so direct cost will be practically nothing; but installing and configuring to handle an 8TB database when you expect not to use a database at all is likely to be very time-consuming and therefore costly. You need to find a budget if you don't have one now. -- Tom
