As we become increasingly dependent on electronically stored data for everything from simple MP3 files to massive electronic design automation files, engineers are being tasked with ensuring the reliable backup, storage and recovery of that data. In the Fundamentals of Storage, engineers and designers will be taken from the basics right through to an overview of current architectures and approaches to ensuring data integrity.

The course starts with the evolution of storage, from early disk drives to large storage clusters now being deployed and how they've become cheaper, faster and more reliable. From there it will look at the basic terms and components, including interconnects, host adapters and protocols, will analyze the advantages and drawbacks of current storage strategies such as RAID, SAN and NAS, and conclude with a look at how scale-out NAS can be applied for applications such as design and simulation.

Viewers need only have a basic understanding of computer hardware, software, operating systems and network interface cards.

Great perspective to focus from. Storage is an essential part of our daily lives and it is often taken for granted. Failure to carefully plan and execute storage concepts might cause so many problems be it at home or the workplace. Sometimes what we need is just some help like what is made available here in your article. Following the right fundamentals will ensure things get organized and put away systematically for easy retrieval in the future.
