WD, LaCie, Buffalo Take NAS Storage Systems to the Next Level

By Nathan Eddy  |  Posted 2013-10-04

In a world where business owners and consumers increasingly want access to all their information—wherever they happen to be and using whatever device they happen to have, network-attached storage (NAS) appliances are getting bigger, faster and more capable of delivering a secure cloud-based storage offering. Just this past week, WD, a subsidiary of storage solutions specialist Western Digital, introduced its My Cloud family of personal cloud-enabled storage devices, which help users organize, centralize and secure the digital content from their computers and mobile devices and access those files from any device, from anywhere. In addition, offerings from vendors such as Buffalo, LaCie and Synology provide terabytes of data storage with advanced security features and enough power to stream HD content to several devices simultaneously. Whether you're a small business owner looking to better manage the growing mass of data being collected or a media junkie who wants access to all the movies, music and media humanly possible, one of these NAS storage devices is sure to fit the bill—and it will likely fit in your budget, too.
