  • Moving files to a NAS box on a Windows PC

    I apologize if this is a stupid question but if I move several files around my NAS box, would the data go through my Microsoft Windows PC? What happens when I copy the files? I'm asking because I was always scared to do a cleanup on my NAS. I wasn't sure if the files take a long time to move.

  • Not getting expected performance from NAS

    We have a brand new NAS and we're going to use it for fast, share access to our data on the network. It's a 2-disk system and can reach speeds of around 40MB/S. But as of today, we're only getting speed of around 8-10 MB/S. What could the issue be?

  • Using NAS for a high end storage array

    I understand that many storage vendors (EMC, NetApp, etc.) provide storage equipment that does NAS, along with FCP and FCoE. Should we use the NAS functionality of these boxes?

We need to cover the case of drives being recovered without keys / keys be required when the SAN boots. How should we go...

  • Backup a large storage server

    I'm implementing a large server that's going to be used as a live NAS for several other servers. The server will have about 4 - 20 TB of useable space. It will be on RAID 10 for performance concerns but we need a backup solution (including off-site backup). Is there a way to backup that much data?
