Network Attached Storage from EMC
Introducing EMC
EMC solutions offer choice and \ufb02exibility for today\u2019s integrated IT requirements and scalability for
Celerra File Server

information system growth. The EMC\u00ae Celerra\u2122 File Server combines EMC\u2019s industry-leading storage technology with a unique software and hardware approach to deliver unprecedented levels of high availability, scalability, and performance to meet the sharing and access needs of network \ufb01le systems.

The Celerra File Server leverages EMC\u2019s I/O design heritage and provides dedicated, special- purpose \ufb01le server software, highly optimized for moving data. This dedicated \ufb01le server for enterprise data networks eliminates I/O performance bottlenecks associated with general-purpose \ufb01le servers and relieves traditional network servers of \ufb01le service tasks, allowing them to handle other server applications, such as database, CAD/CAM, mail, etc. Celerra File Server solves availability and scalability problems for environments that share information over IP networks.

What is Network
Network Attached Storage (NAS) consolidates distributed data into a large, centralized data pool
Attached Storage?

accessible to, and shared by, heterogeneous clients and application severs across the network. To improve performance and provide uninterrupted access, network attached storage uses a dedicated, specialized operating system for network \ufb01le access. The operating system supports standard \ufb01le access and network protocols. Figure 1 shows the topology of the network attached storage environment.

Figure 1. Network Attached Storage (NAS) Topology

Network attached storage provides an ef\ufb01cient, cost-effective solution for business environments that depend on accessing and sharing large amounts of \ufb01le system data. Data consolidation reduces administrative requirements and management costs. Centralized network \ufb01le server and storage environments \u2014 including hardware and software \u2014 ensure reliable access and high availability of data. NAS environments typically provide a combination of robust server performance, redun- dancy, speedy reboots, and non-disruptive failover protection. Table 1 compares network attached storage to direct attached storage.
