Cloud or Grid Storage Within a VNA
There are other requirements like Cloud or Grid Storage that might be part of a VNA. However, by themselves they do not create a true VNA. This description introduces you to these requirements and provides an in-depth look at what constitutes each one.
Cloud and Grid storage are examples of virtual storage solutions. The actual storage is virtualized to the point that a sender or retriever has an access point that allows for data exchange without knowing where the data resides. The cloud or grid takes care of certain performance requirements, including back up and high availability, through data duplication and other techniques.
