Network Attached Storage (NAS)
Network Attached Storage (NAS) allows you to build your own Cloud storage or data storage solution for your office and home space.
A high-capacity storage system that can be accessed remotely provides more versatility, especially in this energy-dense age where high data files are filling up PCs and mobile phones faster than ever.
A quality NAS drive can group your multiple files into a single backup location and makes accessing and backing up information faster and easier. For any business or home with large amounts of data spanned across multiple devices, NAS can provide more reliable access, faster transfer speeds, and increased security.

What is Network Attached Storage (NAS)?
Network Attached Storage (NAS) is a data storage device that easily connects to your computer network providing access to data across multiple network clients.
If you’re a business, NAS storage allows on and off-site access to data across multiple machines making it easy for your staff or clients to securely view important documents.
A NAS device is compiled of one or more hard drives arranged into customisable storage arrays, meaning that you can scale up or down in storage as you require it. Similar to having a private Cloud, using a NAS device gives you complete control over your data. It can also be accessed remotely using a network connection, meaning companies/clients/users can safely access, store, and back-up data 24/7.
Why do you need NAS?
A dedicated NAS solution gives you the ability to store more data than by doing so with a plug-in hard drive. It also gives you the ability to access your files and data from anywhere in the world - easily and securely.
For households or businesses dealing with a lot of data or requiring multiple points of access, a NAS drive provides a centralized storage solution where everything can be retrieved through a single access key. For businesses, this means your employees can collaborate and respond to clients whether they’re at the office or at home and for households, it means multiple family members can store all important files on the one device, ultimately:
Reducing cost options
Increasing storage space for large files such as photos, videos, and apps
Easily backing up important files so nothing is lost or accidentally erased
Transferring photos, videos, and files between your computer and phone more quickly
Giving you complete control over who can access and view files
How do you choose a NAS device?
Before you buy a NAS online, you need to know how much storage you require.
The level of storage capacity is determined by the number of bays included in the NAS device. This can range from 1 to 4+. For personal use or households, NAS units with 1 or 2 bays will generally be enough. However, if you are wanting to do more than just backup files then it’s recommended to get at least a 2-bay NAS. For businesses, the more storage the better so anywhere from 4+ bays should meet your needs. Contact us if you require assistance.
NAS drives are available either pre-populated with disks or diskless. A pre-populated NAS is sold pre-populated with disks, oftentimes already formatted. A diskless NAS is sold without drives and allows the user to plug-in to their own hard drive to set their own storage capacity. While both provide the same function, the main deciding factor is the price.
