  • 23. INNOVATION FEEDBACKThe Future of NAS Are you converging your IP and storage networks into one shared infrastructure? How important is QoS for your IP storage traffic? What challenges exist in multi-tenant environments with a single shared NAS? Are storage node failovers a problem with your NAS? In some environments, front-end network congestion can result in node failovers. The failovers can take >30 seconds to detect and often result in a node reboot. Are you looking at any alternative storage like SSD, flash, etc…? Are you using OpenStack for management? Are you using VXLAN for Network Virtualization? Are you using OpenFlow for Programmatic Control?© 2012 Brocade Communications Systems, Inc.
