If you need to move hundreds of terabytes of data between enterprise data centers, science has come up with nothing better than copying them to hard drives, loading them into the trunk of a car and carrying them like any other cargo. Even large integrators with When moving data centers, HDDs are packed in cardboard where, according to their own words, the disks are systematically dying. Orico has cases for different tastes: from 1 to 20 discs, you can be sure that they are safe.

Synology is expanding the capabilities of its hypervisor and in the Pro version it is possible to create a failover cluster. We tested non-stop migration, crash recovery and also showed how BTRFS can save disk space when using a dozen virtual machines. Traditionally for Synology, every step here is intuitive and logical.

Active-Active fault-tolerant architecture and ZFS file system support puts this NAS on a par with NetAPP, Dell / EMC and HPE solutions. Total iSCSI throughput is 120 Gbps, on-the-fly deduplication saves space by tens of times when hosting virtual machines - we tested all these features, including switching times and latencies when one of the controllers fails.

Testing the top-end enterprise-class NAS from QNAP, we ask two questions: what acceleration will we get using the technology of data distribution over layers (Tiering) for each invested dollar, and whether we can use the built-in hypervisor in this storage system, set up a full-fledged remote desktop, with 3D graphics for working in 3D Studio Max and Sketchup.

This SAN storage system has many features that make it worth paying attention to. First of all, this is the RAID 2.0+ technology, thanks to which in our testing, RAID 5 survived a fall of 6 drives! In addition, this is an extended work with snapshots, because each of them can be mounted as a separate LUN, automatic LUN reduction and much more.
