 The Top 10 SANs vs. NAS Decision Factors

On Lamp presents The Top 10 SANs vs. NAS Decision Factors.

"NAS filers (dedicated machines serving files via NFS, CIFS, or NCP) were once perceived as "NFS in a box," and no one would think about using them to hold large databases. In contrast, SAN disk arrays were perceived as too expensive for the average user. The decrease in the price of a SAN array, and the increase in functionality and speed of NAS filers have changed all that."
