A storage area network (SAN) is a dedicated network that offers access to consolidated, block level data storage. SANs are mainly used to make storage devices accessible to servers allowing these devices appear like locally attached devices to the operating system. A SAN usually has its own network of storage devices that are generally not accessible with the help of the local area network by other devices.
Recently, Infinitely Virtual, a provider of virtual server cloud computing services for businesses, considerably expanded its storage area network (SAN) capacity to make space for its quickly increasing customer base, and to offer them with the quickest cloud-based storage available in the marketplace.
Adding SAN capacity enhances computing speed and performance for Infinitely Virtual's customers, who are being shifted to the new NetApp SAN platform. Infinitely Virtual opted for NetApp to move to the next level of SAN performance. Also, recently Gartner (News - Alert) identified NetApp as a leader in the storage resource management and SAN management software space, the company stated in a press release.
“We strive to bring our customers the absolute best service in performance, reliability and security," said Adam Stern, founder and CEO, Infinitely Virtual. "Upgrading to NetApp's SAN products is the latest example of how Infinitely Virtual consistently seeks to add value to our product and service offerings, and to offer technologies that measurably improve IT operations for small and mid-size businesses.”
Recently, TMC (News - Alert) reported that the company partnered with McAfee (News - Alert) to ensure that clients had enough protection for all their e-mail, Internet and network needs. Infinitely Virtual was determined to allow customers to remain safe at all times with constant updated threat protection with its innovative approach to virtualization. The company provides the ability to go beyond intrusion detection and prevent threats.
