Your data

Data is a critical asset these days. Without access to your data, people and companies may not be able to work. For companies this means they can’t provide their customers with the level of service desired. Poor customer service, loss of sales or team collaboration problems are all examples of what can happen when information is not available to teams within a company. For home users, it might mean you can’t access your documents, pictures or other valuable data.

What is NAS?

A Network Attached Storage (NAS) device is a storage device connected to a network that allows storage and retrieval of data from a centralised location for authorised network users and heterogeneous clients. NAS devices are flexible and scale-out, meaning that as you need additional storage, you can add on to what you have.

A NAS is like having a private cloud in your home or office. It’s faster, less expensive and provides all the benefits of a public cloud onsite, giving you complete control.

NAS devices are perfect for home use and small businesses because they are:

  • Simple to operate
  • Lower cost
  • Easy to use for back up of data, so it’s always accessible when you need it
  • Good at centralising data storage in a safe, reliable way

With a NAS device, data is continually accessible, making it easy for employees to collaborate, respond to customers in a timely fashion, and promptly follow up on sales or other issues because information is in one place. Because a NAS device is like a private cloud, data may be accessed remotely using a network connection, meaning employees can work anywhere and any time.
