In the late 1990s, CIOs began to hear a new story from vendors: It had become undesirable to store valuable corporate data on a disk inside a computer. What if a fire broke out and your data disintegrated along with your servers? The race was on to separate disks from servers via network connections. Two technologies, SANs and NAS, arose to accomplish this task. Which one an IT buyer chooses depends on three factors: which applications will be run in the enterprise; how much the company is willing to spend; and how much complexity is acceptable.
