Network Attached Storage(NAS)

NAS or Network Attached Storage is a system consisting of 1 or more hard drives, an Ethernet connection and an operating system. This system connects to your network, allowing those on the network to access and share files from a central location, along with a bunch of other helpful stuff.

Network-attached storage is a type of dedicated file storage device that provides local area network (LAN) users with centralized, consolidated disk storage through a standard Ethernet connection.

NAS devices are connected to the LAN as an independent network device and assigned an IP address. The primary advantage of NAS devices is that network storage is no longer limited to the storage capacity of a computing device or the number of disks in a local server. Many NAS products can hold enough disks to support RAID, and multiple NAS appliances can be attached to the network for storage expansion.
