If you’re looking for file storage you’ve most likely seen NAS pop up a time or two. With all the different types of storage available it can get a bit confusing. Let’s try to clear that up a bit.

What is a NAS server? Network attached storage (NAS) is a file server that connects multiple users to a shared database over a network. As users request files from the database the NAS server delivers those files to the users computer so that they can access it.

At its basic level, NAS servers are a means of storing and sharing files with other members of your team or organization. Software and hardware upgrades can be added to improve the overall performance and capabilities of a NAS server and open up more options for the team.

NAS servers come in different sizes. These can range from a desktop unit to a rack mounted server. This will mostly be dependent on the amount of storage you need and the number of drives required.
