There is a specific criterion to decide which storage
technology is right for your business. The criteria of selection begins from
the basic question of “How much data do you need to store?”,  once the business gets a clear idea of the
storage capacity requirements, further questions are raised regarding Scalability
requirements, Reliability, Backup & Recovery, Performance and Budget.

 

Direct Attached Storage is the digital storage that is
directly attached to the computer/server. A common example of DAS is the hard
drive of a desktop computer. DAS is not connected to the network and is always
directly attached with the server itself. On the other hand, Network Attached
Storage (NAS) is a storage which is connected to a network allowing the
fetching and storage of data from a centralized location for authorized
clients.

 

Comparing the both, NAS is faster and provides the public
cloud onsite allowing complete control over the resources but this comes up
with the complexity of setting up complex networks and support infrastructure
and is best suited for large scale enterprises only. On the other hand DAS is a
cheaper and hassle free alternative. The main advantage of DAS is the
simplicity, Low initial cost and Ease of management. The major issue with DAS
is inconvenience caused during data transfer between servers and scalability
limitations.
