NetDevice NAS

Novells NetDevice NAS makes it easy to add file server appliances to mixed environments (as long as the hardware is Novell-certified). The built-in support for Novell eDirectory makes NetDevice NAS more attractive to sites with NetWare in place.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // NetDevice NAS is easy to deploy on certified hardware systems, allowing organizations to quickly add storage and to leverage older systems as storage devices.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // The NetDevice NAS can provide a good return on investment because it can seamlessly scale up to 8 terabytes of storage by adding hard drives and storage enclosures.

PROS: Inexpensive; offers quick NAS implementation on installed server hardware.

CONS: Lacks AppleTalk, DAV and LDAP support; for use only on Novell-certified hardware.
