The text discusses examples of traditional mass storage such as magnetic disk and solid-state drives. While these still underpin most mass storage, in corporate environments they are often accessed via Network Attached Storage (NAS) or Storage Area Network (SAN) technologies. Find and summarise ONE resource that describes EITHER NAS or SAN storage technologies. The resource, and your summary, must focus on either NAS or SAN, NOT BOTH.
Title and Reference:
Operating systems use file managers to interact with mass storage devices. However, the way in which data is stored and retrieved is dictated by the file system. There are many types of file systems used by modern operating systems. Find and summarise ONE resource that describes ONE such file system that is NOT FAT, FAT32 or ExFAT. The resource, and your summary, must focus on A SINGLE file system.
