Storage is our game
No one knows network storage solutions like Heartland Business Systems. With 20 years of experience behind us, our team of certified systems engineers understands the differences between SAN, NAS and SAS storage solutions. We also can help guide you to the solution that fits your organization’s needs best — and when to combine solutions into a hybrid that maximizes the benefits of each.
Solutions designed for you
Heartland sells and supports solutions from multiple vendors including Dell, HP, and EMC. We do this because no single vendor fits every customer and we want our customers to have all the options possible.
Efficient and cost-effective
Storage is an essential part of every business and an important decision because regardless of whether a company is growing or shrinking their data grows every year and becomes increasingly more difficult to manage inexpensively.
Flexible and scalable
Today’s trends are to lower the cost of storage and make it more flexible and scalable. We typically accomplish this through storage tiering (different groups of drives for different purposes). For example, we might recommend inexpensive bulk storage for old, infrequently used data and high-speed storage for business-critical data, or deduplication to consolidate data and avoid storing multiple copies of the same data. We can also provide storage replication to a Disaster Recovery (DR) site.
Data Storage Systems
NAS (Network Attached Storage) is a single device connected to a network to provide data storage services to other devices on the network. NAS units are typically controlled and configured over the network, and have traditionally been deployed in small-to-medium organization network environments.
SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) is a bus device to used to access and move data to and from network storage devices.
SAN (Storage Area Network) is a dedicated network that provides access to consolidated data. Typically used in enterprise-level organizations 10 years ago, the cost of SANs has been reduced to allow adoption across small to medium sized business environments.
