Looking at making the move from traditional HDD backups to NAS storage or need some advice on the best way to set up your networked storage device? Well, check out our simple guide to setting up a NAS drive.
In this video guide from our Business Solutions expert Guy Drury, we take a look at how to set up your NAS storage and outline a few tips to keep your system running safe and secure.
NAS (Network Attached Storage) is no longer a simple backup device sitting on your network or “just a bunch of disks” used for additional storage. Over the past 3 years, these devices have developed into an integral part of a businesses IT arsenal, offering an array of simple but effective features at a very cost effective price.
No matter what size business you’re running, a NAS has an application to suit your requirements; from online accounts and sales ordering systems to shopping cart solutions for your e-commerce site, these little boxes can help make your life easier… A NAS drive is not simply limited to storage, with features aiding security, efficiency and accessibility, a NAS could become the backbone of your small to medium business.
Nearly all businesses are using a server of some sort to run their business IT requirements, however these can be expensive to upgrade due to the ‘branded’ hard drives cost for the amount of data you need. Did you know a NAS can offer up to 5 times the amount of data for the same money as some servers? so even if you needed a backup solution or additional data to sit on your network this is the perfect solution.
Even if you needed a solid backup solution or additional data to sit on your network, NAS can be the simple, reliable and cost-effective solution.
The future of NAS is not limited as there are applications been developed every month by the major NAS manufactures, as your business needs grow so will your NAS.
Application developers of most major software are creating new additions that are been tested as we speak, so the only real question is “What are you waiting for?” get in touch with Ebuyer today to discuss your requirements and find out how NAS can help your business grow.
