A Blade Server houses multiple server modules (blades) in a single chassis. Either self-standing or rack mounted, it is optimized to consume a minimal amount of power and use the available space in a data center as efficiently as possible.
Converged and Hyper-Converged Infrastructure can be distinguished from the traditional data center silos, but they each have different characteristics; one being more customizable than the other.
Direct Attached Storage (DAS) is storage directly connected to the computer in some shape or form, as opposed to storage accessed over a computer network; thus making your data inaccessible to other computers.
Network Attached Storage (NAS) simplifies file sharing among multiple users that are connected to a network that allows storage and retrieval of data from a centralised location for authorised network users.
A Rack Server is designed to deliver high performance, reliability and availability at affordable prices and to address any business environment from work groups and small businesses to medium and large enterprises.
A Storage Area Network (SAN) allows all users sharing the same network access to multiple storage devices that provide block level storage for servers in a data center.
A Tower Server is a computer intended for use as a server which provides the ability to effectively connect a network of computers, making it a vital part of many modern offices.
