What Is Network Attached Storage

Network Attached Storage, short as NAS, is network storage for data transmission based on standard network protocols, providing file sharing and data backup for computers with various operating systems such as Windows/Linux/Mac OS in the network.

As one of the three network storage technologies (the other two are: DAS - Direct Attached Storage and SAN - Storage Area Network), Network Attached Storage is a data storage mechanism that uses special devices directly connected to network media. Because these devices are assigned IP addresses, they can be accessed by the client through a server that acts as a data gateway, and in some cases, they can be accessed directly without any intermediate clients.
