NAS - Network Attached Storage. What is it?


Network-attached storage or NAS devices are devices connected to a computer network that allows data storage and retrieval from a central location. Network-attached storage or NAS devices are flexible and scale well, meaning as and when you need additional storage, you can add what you need. It’s like having a private cloud in your office. It’s faster, less expensive and gives you complete control.

Why do you need network-attached storage? Businesses today are receiving, creating and storing more data than ever before, and access to and the security of that data is vital for the well being of the company.

As the amount of data grows, so does the amount of storage required to house it. Small businesses find themselves faced with several issues, such as:

  • Lower Cost Storage Options
  • Ease of Operation
  • Ease of Backup
  • Growth Capacity

Network Attached Storage (NAS) systems are a perfect fit for SME’s

  • They are simple to operate
  • Lower cost
  • Easy to backup
  • Resilient
