  3. 3. What is storage Any recording media used to store digital data.
  4. 4. What is storage Any recording media used to store digital data.  Memory, optical disk (CD/DVD), flash memory (SD card, USB flash drive), hard drives.
  5. 5. Why use external storage
  6. 6. Why use external storage Capacity expansion  4~6 internal disks per host vs. over 100 disks per storage subsystem.
  7. 7. Why use external storage Capacity expansion  4~6 internal disks per host vs. over 100 disks per storage subsystem. Data protection with RAID design on storage  Redundancy provided by RAID 1/5/6.
  8. 8. Why use external storage Capacity expansion  4~6 internal disks per host vs. over 100 disks per storage subsystem. Data protection with RAID design on storage  Redundancy provided by RAID 1/5/6. High performance with RAID design on storage  Access multiple disks at the same time.
  9. 9. Why use external storage Capacity expansion  4~6 internal disks per host vs. over 100 disks per storage subsystem. Data protection with RAID design on storage  Redundancy provided by RAID 1/5/6. High performance with RAID design on storage  Access multiple disks at the same time. Shared by different hosts.  SAN/NAS, shared storage between hosts.

  12. 12. DAS  Direct-attached storage
  13. 13. DAS  Direct-attached storage  Storage directly attached to a server or workstation.
  14. 14. DAS  Direct-attached storage  Storage directly attached to a server or workstation.  The no. of hosts share this storage equals to the no. of I/O ports on the storage.
  15. 15. DAS  Direct-attached storage  Storage directly attached to a server or workstation.  The no. of hosts share this storage equals to the no. of I/O ports on the storage.  It is block I/O, the file system is managed by the server/workstation.
  16. 16. DAS  Direct-attached storage  Storage directly attached to a server or workstation.  The no. of hosts share this storage equals to the no. of I/O ports on the storage.  It is block I/O, the file system is managed by the server/workstation.  A “storage island” with inability to share data or unused resource (space) with other servers.
