Improve Performance with a Network-Attached Storage Device

Data is the lifeblood of businesses today, making the technology for storing, analyzing and delivering data among the most important elements of the IT stack. Choosing the right storage servers is critical to cost-effectively manage exponentially expanding data volumes while enabling the business to use data to more effectively make decisions, engage customers, increase productivity and streamline operations.

For many IT architects, a network-attached storage device, or NAS storage system, can provide the flexibility and performance required to achieve these data storage objectives. But constrained budgets and limited rack space in the data center make it difficult to find the right solution.

To address these needs, Aberdeen offers a series of network-attached storage devices that maximize storage density to reduce required rack space. Aberdeen solutions also reduce acquisition costs and deliver the most reliable performance available in the market today.

Why Choose a Network-Attached Storage Device?

NAS storage is a scalable, affordable storage solution that provides a central location for a wide range of authorized users and clients to access and retrieve data. This file-level storage architecture can easily handle the rapidly growing volumes of unstructured data that comprise much of an organization’s data, such as documents, text files, websites, audio, and video.

Benefits of a network-attached storage device include:

  • Scale-out capacity: expanding data storage capacity with a NAS hard drive is relatively simple. Additional devices can be added as needed without needing to upgrade or replace existing servers.
  • Superior system performance: a network-attached storage device takes responsibility for serving files, enabling other network devices and the system as a whole to perform better.
  • Easy deployment and management: a network-attached storage device can be connected easily to the LAN and provides a simplified management interface.
  • Advanced features: features such as thin provisioning, replication, and snapshots are helpful for managing virtual environments.

FAQs: What is a Network-Attached Storage Device?

What is a Network-Attached Storage Device?

A network-attached storage device is a data storage technology that enables multiple users and clients on a network to store and access data in a central place. A network-attached storage device is typically an appliance that can be connected to a network with an Ethernet connection.

Why Use a Network-Attached Storage Device?

Network-attached storage, or NAS, is a scale-out technology that allows IT teams to affordably and flexibly add capacity to data storage centers. Because a network-attached storage device is responsible solely for serving files, it can help to improve system performance by taking file-serving responsibilities away from other devices.
