How does a NAS work?

A NAS is in essence a hard drive that is connected to the network, whether it’s a large business network or a smaller one in the home. Users can then send and retrieve files on the NAS, at fast network speeds.

If you are a business then this makes network management much easier as your data can be safely shared, which makes it much easier for team working.

Not only that, but one big advantage is remote access, once the network is configured for secure access you can log in remotely to access your data, your very own cloud storage solution.

Desktop or rack?

There are desktop and rack mounted models available, if space is an issue desktop models may be quite sufficient for your needs, but larger networks may be better served by a rack mounted setup.

Protecting your data

NAS drives come in vast capacities, enough to store all of your data, but you need to protect your data, RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) can help with this as your data is stored on several drives at the same time, giving you fall-back options in the event of drive failure.
