What IBM Spectrum NAS can do for your business

IBM® Spectrum™ NAS software-defined storage offers agility and management simplicity for network-attached storage (NAS) workloads. It helps reduce capital expenditure by working with industry-standard x86 servers to form high-performance scale-out storage clusters.
