What is NAS and Do I need one?
NAS (Network Attached Storage) is an intelligent storage device connected to your home or office network. You can store all your family and colleagues’ files on the NAS, from important documents to precious photos, music and video collections. By using a web browser or mobile apps, you can access files and use various services provided by the NAS via the Internet.
Why Do You and Your Family Need One
How many photos and videos do you take each day? Is your phone or laptop running out of space? Our constant challenge is that the number of our digital files keeps going up and they are scattered across different devices and services. To consolidate these files into one safe place, you need a secure and centralized storage solution.
The major drawbacks of storing files on the public cloud are letting someone else hold all your personal files and high monthly subscription fees. The shortcomings of USB drives range from a lack of off-site access and automatic backup to portability that can lead to loss or damage.
NAS is the best alternative and a necessity for the modern home. Read on to find out what else NAS can do for you.
