Network-Attached Storage Devices
Network-Attached Storage Devices Overview
What are Network-Attached Storage Devices?Network-attached storage (NAS) devices contain a server or a server cluster on a LAN specializing in file serving and sharing, which can be accessed remotely by any number of clients on the network or outside it. A NAS array can be used to host a private cloud, for backup and disaster recovery, and ensuring the same files may be accessed by many users.
Specialized computers and operating systems dedicated to creating a NAS may present an option; combining legacy equipment with software might also be viable.
