How Real-World Numbers Make the Case for SSDs in the Data Center
On June 9, Cisco launched its new Smart Storage desktop product line, led by the Small Business NSS 300 Series and designed specifically for small businesses with fewer than 100 employees.Cisco Systems, the world's largest IT networking company, has famously been moving into the data center systems business the last couple of years. But what a lot of people don't realize is that Cisco is also getting deeper into network storage for small and medium-size businesses.
The Small Business NSS 300 Series consists of two-bay, four-bay and six-bay desktop network storage units and provides small business users with a single system that comes with preinstalled business applications.
Cisco quietly introduced its first storage hardware products, the NSS2000 and NSS3000 units, in spring 2009. Much development has ensued since.
