According to research conducted by IDC 2021 FutureScape, by the end of 2021, at least 70% of small and medium-sized businesses will operate under a mixed business model.
Working from home will grow and become the norm. This can increase the demand for business owners to ensure the smooth flow of data if they, their employees or IT consultants benefit from advanced data processing, such as virtualization, data processing collaboration, and intensive database workloads.
For small and medium businesses, NAS network storage, along with cloud storage, is one of the most used ways to access, share, and protect data. The NAS solution helps small and medium-sized businesses address delays in accessing data and enable remote shared access to data and applications over a network.
“SMBs need a robust system that is both efficient and easy to use. In many cases, they need an on-site data infrastructure. SMBs can reap the benefits of NAS solutions and get the performance, capacity and reliability they need. For more advanced data processing and high applications performance, NAS storage devices will need increased performance.” Eric Spanneut, Vice President of Solid State Drives for Consumers and Businesses at Western Digital, says: “The new WD Red SN700 NVMe SSD is the ultimate cache solution and perfectly integrates with WD Red HDDs in high-capacity NAS environments.”
Increase NAS performance with a new cache solution with NVMe SSDs
Western Digital announces the launch of a new SSD WD Red SN700 NVMe Drive, which is highly flexible and provides a fast cache solution that accelerates the performance of NAS volumes for small and medium businesses.
The new high-speed drive is designed to support 24/7 NAS environments with applications running with maximum reliability and durability. With fast system response and I/O output power, the drive is ideal for multi-application and multi-user environments, allowing small and medium-sized businesses to manage their demanding projects from virtualization and collaboration in data processing to extensive database storage. The slim design fits perfectly in the off-the-shelf M.2 NVMe slot, which is already used in many NAS storage devices.
“NVMe technology is now increasingly being incorporated into solutions QNAP. M.2 is already the standard for most of our RAID storage models with SSD caching support. “ Tamblyn Kallman, Director of Sales and Marketing at QNAP, says: “The WD Red SN700 NVMe SSD will help enhance the QNAP family of products, especially their storage capabilities, by increasing the read and write speeds of system data in the NAS storage without the need to add additional disks to the disk pool.”
Key Benefits of WD Red SN700 NVMe Solid State Drive:
- high performance The drive delivers up to 3,430MB/s** (500GB and 1TB), which is over five times more than sequential reads on SATA drives.
- High reliability and durability The drive is optimized for 24/7 workload environments. Provides reliability and durability of up to 5100TB (4TB model) to handle continuous buffer operation during read and write cycles.
- high capacity – The drive is available in capacities ranging from 250GB* to 4TB* to handle current and future cache requirements.
