What is a NAS server?
A NAS (Network Attached Storage) server is a simple data storage device. It operates within a local network and allows quick access to stored files for any device on the network. These servers function on the basis of hard disks - basic devices can contain up to 4 memory components, however those intended for broader applications, e.g. company's, can function on the basis of several dozen disks.
Due to their simple structure, NAS servers are mainly used at home or in places where a large amount of data needs to be temporarily stored, e.g. hotel surveillance video files. An additional advantage of this solution is the almost immediate access to the stored files, for each device of the local network, as well as their free transfer within the users of a given network or, with the use of appropriate protocols, beyond local access.
We offer NAS servers that are suitable for both business and home use. Devices for office use should allow for adequate protection, so you should always choose servers that offer more space. A rack-mounted NAS guarantees easy expansion or serviceable parts. The individual disks can be used to create a secure RAID space. So if you're looking for hardware that meets the needs of your business, a QNAP or Synology NAS server will prove to be the best choice due to its reliability.
NAS file servers are based on radio communications, but you can also get a wired connection. This will be more secure for business networks and provide fast data transmission, which can be beneficial when large numbers of files need to be transferred. Wired connectivity can also be a reliable solution if the server is to be used by several people at the same time.
