  • 1. Integrated Enterprise Solutions, Inc. Presents…. September 11, 2009 What Can a NAS Do For You? I N T E G R A T E D E N T R P R I S E S O L U T I O N S T E C H N O L O G Y + I M A G I N A T I O N 376 Business Park  3 Nancy Court, Building 1, Suite 1 Wappingers Falls, NY 12590  P 845.226.9983  F 845.226.9987 I E S - N Y .

  • 2. What’s a NAS? A Brief History
    • Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices started as easy additional shared storage space for businesses.
    • A dedicated hard disk-based storage technology designed to be connected directly to a network .
    • Provides centralized data access to multiple network clients.
    • Over time they have gotten smaller in size and price.
    • Home and business networks can take advantage of their features.
    Netgear purchased Infrant Technologies in 2008 and obtained their successful “ReadyNAS” line.

  • 3. Looks like a toaster….. But does SO much more… “ Toast” the competition by having an affordable storage solution that grows with you and is accessible from anywhere!
  • 4. Productivity Features
    • NAS is specifically designed to intelligently store and serve files to multiple clients so data availability increases.
    • NAS includes an embedded operating system, unlike basic storage devices, such as USB, Firewire or CD’s/DVD’s, which have limited functionality.
    • The OS gives NAS built-in intelligence and allows it to operate independently of the servers and clients on the network.
    • Other machines go down, the data remains secure and accessible .
    • RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) options replicate stored data across multiple disks to provide easy data recovery.

  • 5. SAVE YOURSELF …. TIME DATA LOSS PRODUCTIVITY MANUAL MISTAKES
  • 6. What are the benefits?
    • Save Time & Resources
      • Plug & Play design.
      • Self-management features.
      • RAID technology gets you up and running quickly and keeps you there.
    • Eliminate Downtime
      • ReadyNAS sends alerts of drive failure.
      • Hot-swappable drives allow replacement of damaged drives while the device is still running.

  • 7. What are the benefits?
    • Increases Productivity and Efficiency
      • Instead of keeping files in multiple locations a NAS can be the central repository for all of your data.
    • Automates Backup
      • All network data is backed up and restorable.
      • Integrated backup manager enables one-button offload of data to external USB devices or remote servers.

  • 8. Why not just a server?
    • NAS is less expensive and less complicated.
    • Added to the network and completely dedicated to storage.
    • Less prone to system crashes and security attacks.
    • Easy to troubleshoot due to less complexity.

  • 9. MAC OS or Windows, ReadyNAS is READY to Roll!
  • 10. Can NAS offer multiple platform access?
    • ABSOLUTELY!!
    • NAS devices achieve more client operating system independence than servers by hiding their OS personality.
    • They do run their own operating systems, but unlike Windows, UNIX and Novell file servers, they don’t demand specific client-side protocol support.
    • MAC or PC – the NAS can work for you!!

  • 11. What’s a RAID; Do I need it?
    • RAID stands for “Redundant Array of Independent Disks”.
    • Raid arrays allow multiple individual hard disks to be combined to perform as if they were one larger disk & data is spread and replicated across multiple disks.
    • This reduces the risk of losing all data if one fails.
    • One drive fails, you’ll have all your data on the second; without RAID data will be unrecoverable unless seeing a specialized firm.
    • Why take the risk?

  • 12. ReadyNAS – Strong, Flexible, Secure….And Ready to Share
  • 13. NAS vs DAS?
    • DAS, or “Direct Attached Storage”, such as USB and Firewire drives has its place, but not the versatility of the NAS.
    • A DAS cannot be directly and simultaneously accessed by other machines.
    • A DAS device is completely reliant on the host computer, hence, DAS can be an effective option for an individual computer user, but difficult to manage for multiple users.
    • For multiple computers or networks, NAS is more efficient, safer and easier to manage.

  • 14. What if I need more storage?
    • RAID technology allows smaller customers to start with one drive and scale to 4 if needed.
    • Upgrade to higher capacity drives. X-RAID single volume auto expansion will take care of the RAID details for you.
