Rugged Network Attached Storage (R-NAS) Server Overview

TAG’s Rugged Network Attached Storage (R-NAS) Server is an alternative to the storage area network (SAN), where devices communicate using the block-based protocol over dedicated Fibre Channel or Internet Protocol (IP) network. R-NAS devices are connected to a shared local area network (LAN); reducing overheads, while also reducing latency. R-NAS uses file based protocols such as Network File System (NFS),

Microsoft’s Common Internet File System (CIFS/SMB) and AppleTalk, providing heterogeneous data sharing.

R-NAS, which is powered by Open-E software, combines the ease of management of NAS with the performance and scalability of SANs. It offers the best combination of scalability, reliability, availability, and performance. NAS software includes a complete operating system, which turns a rugged computer system into a R-NAS storage server in about 10 minutes. Pre-installation of the OS on the secured IDE flash ensures minimum downtime and the protection of the OS against viruses. File servers based on the NAS software deliver significant ease of use, and performance enabling organizations to automate and simplify their data management.
