NAS Servers

Fast data access, ease of administration, and simple configuration make NAS systems a popular choice for consumers.

NAS devices are a convenient method of sharing files among multiple computers. Potential benefits of network-attached storage, compared to file servers, include faster data access, easier administration, and simple configuration.

NAS systems are networked appliances which contain one or more hard drives, often arranged into logical, redundant storage containers or RAID arrays. Network-attached storage removes the responsibility of file serving from other servers on the network. They typically provide access to files using network file sharing protocols.

NAS uses file-based protocols such as NFS (popular on UNIX systems), SMB/CIFS (Server Message Block/Common Internet File System) (used with MS Windows systems), or AFP (used with Apple Macintosh computers).

Network-attached storage (NAS) is file-level computer data storage connected to a computer network providing data access to clients. NAS not only operates serving files, but is specialized for this task either by its hardware, software, or configuration of those elements.
