In Part 1, we built a NAS Disk Array. This time we will convert our NAS array into a fibre channel SAN and configure a Windows DAS server.
Greg Noel's new multi-part series will show you how to put together lots of high-performance storage for a lot less than slower and less capacious off-the-shelf NASes.
You probably don't need 1,000 Terabytes sitting on your LAN. But understanding how one company set out to build their own storage module for a tenth of what vendors charge may help you in your next NAS build.
