To solve the network-attached storage (NAS) sprawl problem, NAS vendors developed what’s referred to as “scale-out” NAS. Scale-out NAS, in general terms, allows for a large number (hundreds or thousands) of front-end nodes (not heads) to be clustered and for back-end storage modules to be added into a single pool that could reach into the PBs. The architectures of traditional NAS and scale-out NAS are significantly different, meaning their applicable use cases are also different. If management of traditional NAS systems is becoming cumbersome for you, perhaps it’s time to consider scale-out NAS as either an alternative or a supplement.
