How do I add more storage to my network?
Running out of storage space? The typical solution is to add a larger or additional (internal or external) drive where needed. Data storage attached directly to the network with the capability for management is a better solution. This is known as Network Attached Storage (NAS).
NAS boxes normally support 1 or more disks. RAIDs (redundant arrays of independant disks).
Adding “incremental” storage increases management complexity, especially the difficulty in managing back-ups
Designed to provide fast, scalable and reliable data access
Storage topologies offer a variety of optional configurations to meet demanding requirements
Delivers the storage needed wherever it is required on the network
Provides an easily implemented client back-up protocol, protecting critical data resources
