What is NAS (Network Attached Storage) and why does it matter?

Data is of utmost importance for any company. Bad customer service, loss of sales, and business liquidation can easily result from a lack of access to corporate data. Simply put, companies are unable to meet customer expectations if their corporate information is not readily available.


What is NAS?

Network attached storage, or NAS, can be placed at home or at the office to serve as a private storage device. It is a computing appliance that enables multiple users to access their data from a variety of devices, such as computers and smartphones, by simply connecting to a router or switch. 

Using a web browser, you can store important files, pictures, and videos on a NAS, where they can be accessed, stored, and shared with others.

Why use NAS?

  • Low cost
  • Easy to operate without the need for an IT specialist
  • Perfect for centralizing data safely and reliably
  • Data is readily available and backed up
  • Acts like a private cloud so data can be accessed remotely
  • Allows employees to work from anywhere at anytime
