Wide Area File Systems (WAFS)
Wide area file systems (WAFS) are appliances that enable remote users to share files and access data over a wide area file network (WAN). Even over wide distances, WAFS can achieve rapid LAN speeds.
A well designed wide area file system allows enterprise companies to consolidate storage at data centers instead of backing up and managing disparate data at remote locations.
WAFS is a popular data optimization and consolidation solution for many organizations—particularly government agencies, educational institutions, and financial companies that tend to have numerous branch locations. WAFS offers data security enhancement, continuous real-time read/write access and backup, and simple, quick system recovery capabilities.
GreenPages carries all of the major manufacturers of WAFS appliances and can engineer specific WAFS designs to meet current WAFS projects, future WAFS initiatives, and WAFS technology lifecycle management needs.
