What makes euroNAS better than standard storage appliances?
Future-safe – your server should grow with your business
Legacy storage manufacturers often use proprietary hardware and an operating system which will only run on the hardware in question. This makes it difficult to expand in the future and forces you to buy new units. euroNAS will grow with the needs of your company. It is not tied to proprietary hardware – this makes it a highly flexible and scalable solution. Theoretically you could start with a simple 1-2 disks NAS and extend it to a high capacity server of up to 1 Petabyte.
Work with the hardware manufacturer you trust and still save costs
Many companies have arrangements with some of the mayor vendors such as Dell, HP, IBM, Fujitsu etc. While these companies have competitive pricing on standard servers, their customized storage servers usually cost much more. With euroNAS you can turn standard servers into powerful storage solutions but at a fraction of the cost compared to their own storage solutions.
You don’t need bare metal hardware
euroNAS will run on most servers on the market, however you can also use it as “Virtual Storage Appliance (VSA)” within your ESX, Hyper-V or Xen
Unified interface for all your storage servers

If using standard NAS Servers, a system administrator is confronted with different types of user interfaces. euroNAS Provides same usability experience independently from used hardware.
