North American Systems storage solutions group can help you combine a variety of storage applications to develop a storage solutions that meets your business’ unique needs.
North American Systems only offers enterprise-class storage arrays that are easy-to-manage, highly available, & suitable for heterogeneous computing architectures.
Fibre channel disk solutions are ideal for environments that require high-performance, low-latency storage for applications.
IP SAN delivers the advantages of a SAN without requiring expensive FC hardware, and the expense of building a new network. iSCSI and TCP/IP networking & storage devices are already present in many small- to medium-sized businesses.
iSCSI storage utilizes standard ethernet architecture, allowing it to operate on any TCP/IP network. Combined with Gigabit Ethernet technology, iSCSI performance can approach that of FC devices & networks.
Our offering of storage products include modular, cost-effective, and scalar midrange RAIDs. We offer Fibre Channel, SATA, and now SAS disk, and some devices can mix-and-match disks in the same RAID.
Network attached storage allows Windows, UNIX, and Linux filesystems & backups to be consolidated on a single platform, freeing application servers to run production application, rather than competing for resources with file storage & management tasks. Ideal for disk-to-disk backup, nearline storage, data retention, as well as high-performance, misson-critical I/O applications.
The newest optical storage systems leverage UDO media for data archival & retention requirements, providing data integrity for regulatory compliance.
North American Systems was an early pioneer in storage virtualization technologies such as Storage Area Networks, and we continue to offer SAN solutions designed to reduce complexity & costs, effectively dealing with the explosion of data storage requirements many organizations face today.
Serial-attached SCSI is interoperable with SATA, and delivers performance, capacity, and scalability comparable to Fibre. Ideal for high-density computing environments, as SAS cables are thinner than traditional parallel cables.
Serial ATA, or SATA, is a high-capacity disk storage option enables disk-to-disk backup & other nearline storage applications to be implemented cost-effectively.
Reliable, portable, and affordable, tape storage remains a viable format for many backup & archival applications. The newest models include embedded encryption & WORM technology for retention compliance needs.
