PITTSBURGH--(Avere Systems, a leader in network-attached storage (NAS) optimization, today announced the publication of NAS Optimization for Dummies.)--
“This book introduces a new storage architecture that was designed to meet the challenges of the modern business”
Organizations are faced with storage performance, cost and latency challenges due to the massive amounts of data being processed and the global nature of business. NAS Optimization for Dummies was designed to provide readers with an accessible and easy-to-read guide that addresses these issues. The book consists of seven short chapters to provide readers with simple, effective and economical actions that can dramatically improve the performance of existing NAS systems.
“This book introduces a new storage architecture that was designed to meet the challenges of the modern business,” said Rebecca Thompson, VP Marketing, Avere Systems. “It also explains in a digestible and straight-forward fashion how NAS optimization provides the flexibility organizations need to leverage new technologies such as Flash and gain access to the cloud without a forklift upgrade.”
Key topics discussed in the book include:
- Go beyond the limits of the conventional Core filer – understanding how Edge filers use Flash memory to handle performance scaling
- Implement dynamic tiering – install storage that dynamically reconfigures itself to match the processing load
- Take advantage of the cloud – reduce costs and enhance the accessibility of your data for remote users
- Locate storage near computation – Edge filers place high-performance storage where it will do the most good, close to the processors doing the computation
This Avere Systems Special Edition NAS Optimization for Dummies was authored by Allen G. Taylor and published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
