It is recommended that a high speed storage device be installed like Network Attached Storage (NAS). The IT Data Center is hosted on Netgear ReadyNAS NVX 4TB DUAL GIGABIT RNDX4410. Centralize data from your local systems into one single storage device, reducing management headaches and instantly increasing reliability. Capacity can be added with zero downtime, and ReadyNAS supports both file sharing and server applications like Microsoft Exchange, SQL ServerÂ or VMwareÂ.
