Storing information and managing its storage is critical to an organization’s success. It has never been more critical to tie together the ever-increasing volume of business data – whether it is small, midsize or large organization, operating in the public or private sector.

There are three states in Storage system they are Calculate, Transmission and Stored. Stored state is the important as its result state. In fact the storage systems are widely used in all the data centers in all the industry fields. The storage systems care about the data integrity, security and reliability; guarantee the storage performance for the computing systems; improve the storage efficiency; optimize the applications; provide the disaster and recovery methods for the data protection on data level and application level.
Microlink can design, deliver and support you with a storage solution that will address your needs around information compliance, availability, retention and security and deliver maximum value from your investment.

We offer a complete portfolio of storage systems like Storage Area Network(SAN), Network Area storage(NAS), Unified Storage System, Tape based storage which give you best-in-class availability and performance to meet the needs of your business applications.



Microlink provides Storage solutions through highly resilient, hardware data storage solutions which include the required speed, performance, flexibility, scalability & security for today’s entry to enterprise storage solutions. Storage solutions will help organizations to store, protect, optimize & leverage their existing & ever growing information.

Microlink offers a range of proven best-in-class storage solutions that meet a variety of your most critical business data management needs.

1) Direct Attached Storage (DAS):

It can benefit as dedicated storage at a economical value for high application performance.

DAS is a storage that is directly connected to the server without special support, directly accessible to other ones.

Direct-attached storage provides a local, dedicated pool of storage connected to one or more servers through Host Bus Adapter (HBA). But, DAS system cannot be connected to network and that’s why cannot be used as a shared storage.

It can benefit as dedicated storage at a economical value for high application performance.

2) Network:

A NAS is a storage device that can be attached anywhere in the network. Its sole purpose is to store files and make them available to authorize network users.

NAS is also specialized for this task either by its hardware, software, or configuration of those elements. Our NAS solution is a specialized appliance built from the ground up for storing and serving files.

Network-attached storage removes the responsibility of file serving from other servers on the network. They typically provide access to files using network file sharing protocols such as NFS,SMB/CIFS, or AFP. Potential benefits of network-attached storage, compared to file servers, include faster data access, easier administration, and simple configuration.

3) Storage area network (SAN):

A SAN is a high speed special purpose device that can interconnects different kinds of storage devices with associated data servers on behalf of a larger number of network users. which can be connected to all Servers in LAN or WAN.

SANs as coming in two major flavors based o n the transport protocol used within the SAN itself. Initially, there was the Fibre Channel SAN, and later, the Internet SCSI (iSCSI) SAN emerged. Both types of SANs provide many of the same benefits:


An iSCSI SAN is a storage area network that makes use of the internet protocol (IP) based standard, iSCSI (Internet Small Computer System Interface) to link data storage facilities. The iSCSI protocol makes it possible to encapsulate traditional SCSI commands into TCP/IP packets. This is what enables iSCSI SANs to use traditional LAN network infrastructure components.

With iSCSI, Organization can leverage Ethernet infrastructure, logistics and personnel to manage the SAN. ISCSI also enables quick adoption by allowing either pure software implementations or accelerated hardware solutions. Most important, since iSCSI relies on IP technology, that its future will evolve as Ethernet evolves, with continuing advances in performance, security, reliability and scalability.

5) FC SAN:

FC technology is clearly the most popular approach for enterprise data center storage area networks.  FC SAN solutions are designed to optimize performance and economics by matching workloads to the best platform to meet specific requirements.

Efficient storage infrastructures require purpose-built Fibre Channel fabric architectures to ensure reliability and performance for critical applications and data. FC SAN fabrics enable advanced data center technologies, flash storage, and server virtualization.

Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) is the interface protocol of SCSI on the Fibre Channel. The key Fibre Channel characterstic is Performance, Supports both optical and electrical media, working at High-bandwidth utilization with distance insensitivity.

6) Unified Storage solution:

Unified storage is a storage system that makes it possible to run and manage files and applications from a single device. To this end, a unified storage system consolidates file-based and block-based access in a single storage platform and supports fibre channel SAN, IP-based SAN (iSCSI), and NAS (network attached storage).

Unified Storage solutions enables customers to drive down costs, meet demanding service levels and simplify management with an easy-to-use, multi-protocol solution that supports CIFS, NFS, iSCSI, FC and FCoE.

Unified Storage provides flexible, seamless storage deployment and scalability. Automated replication, Tiering and migration help increase storage efficiency, while automatically optimizing data, performance and efficient data retention.

7) Tape Drive:

A tape drive is a data storage device that reads and writes data on a magnetic tape. Magnetic tape data storage is typically used for offline, archival data storage.

8) Tape Libraries:

Tape library is a collection of magnetic tape cartridges and tape drives. An automated tape library is a hardware device that contains multiple tape drives for reading and writing data, access ports for entering and removing tapes and a robotic device for mounting and dismounting the tape cartridges without human intervention.
