NAS ( Network Attached Storage )
A Network Attached Storage (NAS) device is a specialized data storage appliance that connects directly to your network without having to be connected to a specific server. Network Attached Storage (NAS) technology has many advantages such as: added flexibility for your network architecture, server independent storage, improved performance, better reliability, lower-cost of ownership, the ability to consolidate data and to simplify data management as well as giving you an easier way to scale your data storage requirements. Other advantages also include multi-protocol heterogeneous capabilities, the ability to share access between UNIX, NT, Novell, Macintosh and Web-based servers and clients and the ability to provide rapid deployment of storage in your organization.
