IBMAr Scale Out Network Attached Storage (IBM SONAS) is a Scale Out NAS offering designed to manage vast repositories of information in enterprise environments requiring very large capacities, high levels of performance, and high availability. SONAS provides a range of reliable, scalable storage solutions for a variety of storage requirements. These capabilities are achieved by using network access protocols such as NFS, CIFS, HTTP, and FTP. Using built-in RAID technologies, all data is well protected with options to add additional protection through mirroring, replication, snapshots, and backup. These storage systems are also characterized by simple management interfaces that make installation, administration, and troubleshooting uncomplicated and straightforward. This book is the companion to the IBM RedbooksAr publication, SONAS Implementation and Best Practices Guide, SG24-7962. In this IBM Redbooks publication, we discuss the marketplace requirements that led to the SONAS stand-alone storage system. We introduce storage architectures and file systems. We then introduce the reader to SONAS and describe the hardware and software that make up the SONAS appliance. This book provides the planning information needed to configure the SONAS order based on your enterprise requirements.Mary Lovelace, Jichan Chong, Marcos Figueiredo Jr, Curtis Neal, Gabor Penzes, Naren Rajasingam, Joe Roa, Alexander ... architecture Disk Enclosure Disk Enclosure Disk Enclosure Disk Enclosure Disk Enclosure Controller Controller Disk ...
