What Is A NAS Backup Used For?

Network-attached storage, abbr NAS, is a computer storage device that can be accessed directly over the network, making it easy for home and business users to share and access large amounts of data at any time. In addition, NAS is cheaper and faster than cloud service, which often costs more to buy capacity.

As we said, NAS Backup provides a way for personal and Server users to back up massive data through a network instead of another storage device directly connected to the computer. If you want to store info shared with other co-workers, it lets one thing come true - multiple computers share the same backup server.

How Does A NAS Backup Work?

1 - NAS allows to add large-capacity NAS to the network. 

When this device is added to all devices in a home or business, it means that all PCs under the network can visit the NAS network drive at the same time and share essential files, photos, and so on.

2 - Support NAS Streaming Media

NAS backup server allows stream transmission on any supported device like a set-top box, TV, or console.

3. Share Technology

NAS also supports FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol) and SFTP (short for SSH File Transfer Protocol). That Technology performs excellent while you want someone you trust to check files. Besides NAS backup, here is another section about NAS cloud backup, a storage service based on the cloud. (Not our point today)
