(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Perpetual innovation has propelled GigeNET to the forefront of cloud hosting technology and its next generation storage area network is sure to keep it there.
GigeNET renowned as one of the preeminent managed hosting and DDoS protection providers is headquartered just outside Chicago, where it owns a state-of-the-art 17,000 square foot datacenter. It also operates a facility in Los Angeles and is preparing to launch its new East Coast location.
Networks generally include some type of storage. Traditional network storage was located inside, or directly connected to, individual file servers that were often dispersed across workgroups throughout an organization. These typically involved a multi-server approach that was often complicated, cumbersome and costly to maintain.
A storage area network or SAN offers many benefits for the small and medium business over this type of infrastructure. These include higher availability to storage through use of multiple access paths, greater performance with faster connection to disks, and enhanced disaster recovery capabilities by mirroring data on disks at another location. Cost savings is also a factor since disk space is used more efficiently so no space is wasted and businesses don’t need to buy disks as often.
“Our completely independent cloud infrastructure in Chicago runs on our 3rd generation TurbioIO SAN platform,” said Ameen Pishdadi, CTO and president of GigeNET. “This next generation SAN offers significant gains in performance, reliability, stability and redundancy over other solutions offered today at no additional cost. “
