What is Network Attached Storage?
As its name would imply, a Network Attached Storage (NAS) server is a computing device that can be attached anywhere on a network. Its sole purpose is to store files and make them available to authorized network users. NAS devices offer a number of benefits over alternative storage methods. Clients can directly access the storage device, independent of a specific network or application server, thereby enhancing overall network performance, while improving storage accessibility. NAS servers offer the ease of use and flexibility small and mid-size businesses need, while providing the superior data protection they demand.
