Storage Area Network (SAN) Solutions
A Storage Area Network, or SAN, can provide firms with large or growing data storage requirements with a more efficient means of storing and retrieving data compared to traditional data storage technologies.
Once only an economic and technical option for large, enterprise firms, SAN solutions now make sense for many small and midsized businesses.
Welsh Consulting can design, implement and support systems to meet your data storage, data retrieval, disaster recovery and business continuity requirements.
Virtualization allows one computer to handle the workload of several computers simultaneously. This is accomplished by efficiently sharing the resources available on a single physical host computer among multiple virtual guest “computers.” As an example, a network that historically required separate physical machines for email, a SQL database, web hosting, applications, file sharing and printing, can now be consolidated into two physical servers. This can significantly reduce server hardware requirements.
Benefits of virtualization include:
- Less capital expense and lower Total Cost of Ownership due to more efficient use of hardware resources
- Energy savings from decreased power and cooling requirements
Improved ease of management and provisioning
- High availability and disaster recovery capabilities
