NAS Drives

What is a NAS Drive?
NAS (Network-Attached-Storage) drives are a safer way of storing or backing up data, than a conventional External Hard Disk Drive (EHDD).NAS drives have an advantage over non-dedicated server storage systems in that they provide fast and simple data access and are easier to administrate. They are a useful mix of local and cloud based storage solutions. NAS drives provide an easy server setup, and are so a great solution for smaller businesses to centralize their company relevant data for easy access by staff by wireless device or networked computer. For convenient collaboration, secure data protection and reliable data backup, a NAS drive is essential.
What you need to know
NAS drives with more than one hard drive often have RAID capabilities for data redundancy and are the most reliable backup solution.
NAS drives are available in many different sizes; they act as a family central media hub and scale up to the largest data centres. NAS systems can be offered preconfigured with drives or an unpopulated enclosure with open bays where hard-disk drives can be inserted to add to the total storage capacity or replace drives.
What are the benefits of NAS Storage?
Speed and convenience is a huge benefit, Instead of a hard drive connecting to your computer, NAS devices connect to your wireless router – enabling multiple users from multiple devices to access the files on the network. If you’re at home and have a number of PCs and printers, this provides the quickest and most efficient way for everyone to acquire and share the relevant data.
Which devices can I link to my NAS drive?
You can hook up your printers, computers as well as USB cameras with your NAS device.
What is a RAID System?
RAID is a technology that is used to increase the performance and/or reliability of data storage. The abbreviation stands for Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks. A RAID system consists of two or more drives working in parallel.
RAID is a way in which you can link up several hard drives so that if one of them fails, the others can take over the load, more or less seamlessly. Though it is usually found in big, commercial servers, there are plenty of people around that have a RAID array set up at home.
