Do you need a NAS?

We have the answers

“NAS” or Network Attached Storage – Is a Storage device that is accessed by your network, either locally or remotely, allowing a safe way to centralise your DATA and allow flexibility of access for multiple users.

This can be as simple as an External Hard Drive (DAS) or a bespoke raid enclosure from a NAS Brand the allows you to add more storage to you NAS environment.

This refers to an enclosure that has no hard drives included. Most enclosure and NAS’s are “diskless”

Most NAS brands have portals or apps that allow you to connect. There are tutorials that walk you through the process of setting up your NAS and how to connect to them.

NAS can be used for a wide range of uses. Data backup, Media server or even a CCTV server all are used with NAS.

Yes, this is one of the main reasons you would get a NAS. NAS drives have made it easier than ever to be able to access your documents, pictures or movies anywhere in the world that has an internet connection.

RAID is an easy way to protect your DATA when dealing with an enclosure. When you have more than one disk your chances of drive failure increase – although very rare, you don’t want to worry about losing everything. Raid, depending on what you choose can allow you to lose one or more disks without losing your DATA. *NB: RAID IS NOT A BACKUP!* Please contact us to talk to our sales team who can advise you on the right option for you.

NAS drives have come a long way with both Synology and QNAP offering user-friendly software that makes any novice into a networking Guru. From File storage to Media Players, these units make your digital media and files easy to access, catalogue and play. CCTV has become a very simple operation with playback and safe storage of your home survailance.
