Network Attached Storage (NAS) is a centralized storage solution that you can access through your network to store and share your data, and where others can do the same.
Each NAS system has different requirements depending on whether you are using the NAS for a home or small office, for a business workgroup, for small and medium business, or for large business. These needs may vary in terms of performance, encoder capability, video transcoding, ease of use, performance needs, required format factor, etc.
The possibilities are many and sometimes they can be a little confusing.
So how do we choose the right NAS system that meets our needs and budget?
The basis is to answer the following three questions:
1. How much capacity do you need?
Select it according to the type of documents or. The content you want to store on the NAS.
2. How many people will eventually be able to access the NAS at the same time?
However, if you expect more than 10 people to have access to the device, you’ll probably want to check SMB NASs. This NAS can manage multiple user connections and provide faster capacity to manage other services like web server, to decrypt files, to back up multiple files, etc.
If hundreds of users have to connect to a NAS, you should consider the Enterprise NAS system, which provides a high-performance CPU and RAM registers to handle the heavy workload of many users.
3. What applications will you use?
a) For backup file only
b) media server, media player
