NAS, SAN, DAS and SDS recovery requires patience and wisdom
Understanding how those Network devices are built, imaging each drive independently to keep a no footprint policy is key in such recovery. We excel at this.

NAS,SAN,DAS and SDS Devices
NAS: network attached storage
– NAS systems mainly stores data as files
– Supports one or more RAID levels (Avoid data loss)
– NAS are connected to the Ethernet network (TCP/IP mainly)
– Support multiple users connecting to it simultaneously
– Simple, inexpensive and easy
– Network congestion (Ethernet nature)
– Consumes more bandwidth from the TCP/IP network
SAN: storage area network
– SAN is scalable (100’s of disks if needed)
– Performance isn’t affected by Ethernet traffic
– SAN systems require no reboots to add new disks, to replace disks or to configure RAID groups
– SAN data is zoned (nobody can see your data)
DAS: direct attached storage
– High availability.
– High access rate
– No network setup complications.
– Storage capacity expansion.
– Data security and fault tolerance.
SDS: software defined storage
– Better connectivity of existing hardware
– Joint management of the connected storages system
– Reduced costs
– Better performances
– The new data structures of the SDS software solutions lead to additional problems in failures or defects
– VMware is a good example of use for SDS
