I – What is NAS device?

NAS, Network Attach Storage, is a data storage device running over the network. Very simply, think that it as an external hard drive that works with an ethernet cable.

Standard Technology – What is NAS?

Centralised storage for your home or office

Understanding Network Attached Storage (NAS)

Network Attached Storage (commonly abbreviated to NAS) are hard disk storage devices which you can connect to your home or office network. They enable multiple computers in a network to share the same storage space at once.

ccess to the NAS device is over a computer network (usually via TCP/IP) rather than being directly connected to the computer (as in internal hard drives or external USB/SCSI drives).

The NAS devices are assigned an IP address and are accessed by clients (PCs or laptops) via a server that acts as a gateway to the data (this server is within the NAS device and hence NAS devices are often referred to as NAS servers).

Why use NAS?

Three main advantages for using NAS:

  • ExpandabilitySimply add another NAS device to expand the available storage if you need more storage space.
  • Fault toleranceNAS brings an extra level of fault tolerance to your network. Fault tolerant measures such as RAID prevent the NAS device from becoming a point of failure. NAS systems often contain more than one hard disk drive; they are arranged into logical, redundant storage containers or RAID arrays for added redundancy/security – thus, protecting data in the case of disk failure.
  • File sharingWhether you are a home, small office or business user, NAS devices allow you to share large amounts of data with other PCs or laptops in your network – easily, efficiently, and cost-effectively.


How can NAS benefit you?

Network Attached Storage (NAS) is becoming a powerful and proven technology for storing and sharing data in an office or home network. The increasing demand for NAS is fuelled by a number of factors:

  • Cost benefitYou can now add storage to your network without upgrading or replacing existing servers – which can be an expensive option. NAS offers an affordable and expandable solution for end-users requiring network shared storage in a home or office environment. NAS architecture allows you to add storage on the network without having to buy a new and bigger server or upgrading it. NAS is therefore, an effective strategy for extending your existing investment in server technology.
  • Administrative convenienceNAS offers a simple solution: store and share photos, files, music or videos from one central location and make it accessible to anyone with a PC or laptop in home or office network.NAS-based storage offers administrative features that simplify or reduce manual disk expansion and archiving functions, user and application partitioning, data protection, and other time-consuming storage maintenance activities.
  • Greater data reliabilityNAS devices with more than one hard drive bring an extra level of fault tolerance to the network as many offer mirroring RAID features and functionality.ely.

  1. Help me I delete volume from raid 5 .is posible recover.

  2. burado51 says:

    Its a little bit hard but yes, you can recover deleted file by R-Studio or Photorec;

  3. QNAP management is available via my Google Chrome browser. The device, connected to a private LAN (192.168.x.y/ The QNAP TVS 871 is connected via all four LAN ports to a D-Link Smart Switch. The Smart Switch is directly connected to a Cisco Managed Switch. Yet: (1) QNAP continues to ask for privileges to run iSCSI (which I do not use); (2) QNAP fails the AVG security firewall. To use the Qfinder Pro application, I must disable my firewall; (3) QNAP / AVG state that the certificate provided by the QNAP TVS 871 has an invalid security certificate; (4) When I disable my firewall, and bypass the warnings, I get the QNAP management desktop. Then, for unknown reasons, the connection to the QNAP is broken and I am told the device is NOT RESPONDING; (5) I obviously purchased a device that is defective, so how do I get a total refund? Thank you, Andrew.

  4. Bengt Eriksson says:


    How can I get an older version of Surveillance Station ? 3.5.2 for example.


  5. wilson says:

    I have QNAP TS-259 ( not pro or pro+ ). I can’t see this model from QNAP support site. Instead, I only see TS-259pro / TS-259pro+.

    I want to setup my TS-259 for TimeMachine, is there a way to do that? I don’t see the “TimeMachine” option listed when I logged into my NAS.
