Business requirements change often and IT requirements change with them. Some applications are best running on a Network Attached Storage, such as applications where the data is shared by many users. While other applications such as data intensive enterprise applications prefer block-based I/O.
The benefit of Unified Storage, like a Swiss-Army knife, it can provide all three, in one array, thereby saving you money.
Unified Storage: "Unified Storage is a single, integrated storage infrastructure that functions as unification engines to simultaneously support Fibre Channel, IP Storage Area Networks (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) data formats.
A unified storage system simultaneously enables storage of file data and handles the block-based I/O (input/output) of enterprise applications. In actual practice, unified storage is often implemented in a NAS platform that is modified to add block-mode support."
