To all you technical people out there, I'm trying to conceptually work through the differences between a SAN and NAS architecture. I understand the basics, such as a NAS can be viewed as something like an Apple TimeCapsule, WD Ethernet Drive, etc. It has a dedicated IP, and is viewed as storage on the network. My understanding of NAS is as follows: A NAS Server communicates (via. Fiber) with storage arrays, to pull files extremely fast. The NAS Server receives requests from users on the network (via. Ethernet, preferably a private NAS Ethernet network, with a separate network for Internet and other things). The client computers send a request to the host NAS server via Ethernet, and the host in turn transmits the request to the NAS array via fiber, and the NAS array sends the data back to the client server via. fiber. Can someone please elaborate on these topics, if you have the knowledge? It would be much appreciated. Thanks!
