| File-Level Data Sharing Across the Enterprise |
NAS is a special purpose device, comprised of both hard disks and management software, which is 100% dedicated to serving files over a network. NAS relieves the server of storage and file serving responsibilities, and provides a lot more flexibility in data access by virtue of being independent.
On the network, a NAS system appears like a native file server to each of its different clients. That means that files are saved on the NAS system, as well as retrieved from the NAS system, in their native file formats.
With NAS, the utilization rate is high since storage is shared across multiple servers.
NAS is an ideal choice for organizations looking for a simple and cost-effective way to achieve fast data access for multiple clients at the file level.
