Storage Made Simple
Small-office or workgroup nas brings you magnitudes more capacity and a more plug-and-play feel than ever before.Computers are handling more data than ever before, and though hard drives continue to grow larger and larger, theres still not enough space to store all of the files. In addition, administrators are saddled with the extra burden of ensuring that there are backups of that datatypically through the use of redundant arrays of inexpensive disks (RAID). This leaves network administrators with a dilemma: How do they increase storage capacity without disrupting the day-to-day operations of their networks? Adding file servers once seemed a viable option, but in this economy, it means spending a lot on hardware and taxing an already taxed IT staff.
This is especially difficult for smaller organizations with little internal IT support. Administrators who are already stretched thin can become too overwhelmed by being forced to grow their networks. No one wants to add to administrative headaches; IT people need low-maintenance solutions.
