Network-attached storage (NAS) delivers fast data storage and retrieval in a centralized location for work environments with multiple users. It’s usage and capabilities are largely dependent on the type of hard disk drives selected for the device. Generally, NAS makes an ideal primary backup storage target, and is also well suited as a repository for mid- to long-term storage requirements. But with many NAS options available on the market, how do organizations select the best NAS to meet their data storage and operational goals?
With vendors providing comparable offerings when it comes to number of drives, drive support, drive capacity and scalability, it can be difficult to recognize what truly differentiates the many NAS products on the market. What most future-minded organizations have begun to recognize is that IT and data operations have shifted from a cost center to a source of business opportunity, value and innovation. With this in mind, businesses seeking to deploy modern IT infrastructures look towards their overall strategy when making any investment in technology.
