Abstract: 

The MathWorks is not the first company that comes to mind when one thinks of heavy NAS users. However, our testing environment relies heavily on NAS, and our needs are very different from those of most NAS users. As such, we face a unique set of issues and challenges. This case study will trace the progression of the MathWorks' NAS implementation -- from our start with off-the-shelf vendors to our current homegrown solution. We will detail the decisions we made, why we made them, and what ultimately drove us to develop our own solution. We hope that, by the end of this talk, you will have a better idea of what your clients are thinking and why.
