Wireless Data Storage

Disclosed is a method for data storage that has a wireless connection to the base board. Benefits include increasing space on the base board and reducing hard wired connections.

Background

Computers in today’s industry use a variety of storage disks. These disks need to be connected to the baseboard for data storage.

General Description

The disclosed method creates data storage that has a wireless connection to the base board. The components of the disclosed method include systems without local storage, and connections to a storage grid or array using a wireless storage access protocol. The disclosed method uses less space on the base board and also reduces the number of hard wired connections.

Advantages

The following are the advantages of the disclosed method:

§         The physical storage disk can be away from the base board itself.

§         The storage media can be isolated from the main board, and physical security mechanisms can be used to protect sensitive data.

§         The amount of wiring or cabling on the base board is reduced.

§         Storage disks can be shared by multiple clients if the wireless storage protocol is
designed for it

§         The user is not aware of the actual storage mechanism and location.
