Upgrade to Network Attached Storage:

In the olden days we had servers that run on centralized operating systems, with multiple disks to offer a convenient and a better way of file sharing and storage. But today, Network Attached Storage (NAS) offers similar kind of capabilities, only with enhanced power efficiency and productivity.

The latest Intel Atom and ARM processors have proved its capability in increasing the efficiency within the NAS devices. Also storage vendors have realized the need of better space to store data, mean SMBs can go for new NAS appliances that store and improve the network at the same time.


Consider Gigabit Networking:

Are you still running on a slow, frustrating Fast Ethernet speed of 100Mbps? Then it’s time for a change and the change is upgrading to a Gigabit Ethernet (GbE). Comparing both, a large file transfer that took 15 minutes to finish at 100 Mbps will take less than two minutes when transferred over a network operating at 1,000 Mbps. Sounds great? Then what are you waiting for.
