Network Attached Storage (NAS) straddles the line between a local hard drive and cloud storage, and gives you the benefits of both.
Data is a critical asset for companies today. Without access to their data, companies may not be able to provide their customers with the level of service desired. Poor customer service, loss of sales or team collaboration problems are all examples of what can happen when information is not available to teams within a company.
Each of these issues contribute to lack of efficiency and potentially, loss of income if customers cannot wait for a data outage to be corrected.
Additionally, when it comes to data storage, small businesses find themselves faced with other issues, such as needing their storage solution to be:
- Lower cost
- Easy to operate (many small businesses do not have IT staff)
- Capable of growing alongside their storage needs
