Four Things To Consider When Buying A Network-Attached Storage (NAS) System

Protecting your company's information assets is a critical part of any business. There are several vital things to consider when choosing a Network-attached storage system. Some of those include the available capacity, backup and recovery options, connectivity, and NAS security options. Here is a run-down of four things to consider when buying a network-attached (NAS) storage system

1.   Capacity

Prospective buyers of a NAS system need to consider the amount of storage they will require both now and in the future.  Multi-bay devices offer flexibility to grow with your business, so you have the storage capacity you need today as well as room to increase storage as your business grows. 

2.   Backup and Recovery Options

Make sure the NAS device provides appropriate backup and recovery options for your priceless data.  RAID-enabled (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) devices containing 2 or more drives can be configured to mirror data or even repair a faulty drive. NAS ensures safe storage and regular backup of all your electronic files.

3.   Connectivity 

NAS systems provide reliable data storage and backup for multiple computers on the same network and remote access to information when you need it. Some NAS devices offer accessibility via the internet. A recent article in eWeek says "...the nature of backup is evolving. It is no longer simply about data collection or recovery, but increasingly about how an organization can use its backed up data for greater purpose."

4.   NAS Security

NAS provides your business with peace of mind.  Rest easy knowing that your business has a secure backup system in case of hard drive failure. NAS devices paired with cloud storage provide an added layer of redundancy during natural disasters or other catastrophic events.

Client Reviews

“We had a hard drive failure at work, and we didn't have a backup. We went to Ron for a free analysis and he verified there was an issue within 15 minutes. We've never had to deal with data recovery before, and he was willing to answer any questions. He got our data restored to a new drive within 2 days. Would definitely recommend.”
– Seth Allen
“I researched a few places near me that are in the business of data recovery. When I called, I spoke with Mr. *** D****. He was optimistic that he could recover the data from our dead hard drive from our file server. He did not guarantee anything without an evaluation. I drove two hours and delivered the hard drive to him the next day personally. He checked the drive immediately while I waited. He was confident that his team could recover the data from the drive within 3 to 5 days. Surprisingly, Mr. D**** called me the next morning with the good news that his team had come in for an emergency job and completed the recovery on my hard drive during the night. They were able to recover 100% of the data. Mr. D**** was pleasant to work with. I hope I never need there services again, but If I do I would definitely work with them again. I would highly recommend.”
– Bobby M.
“Great service! Great company! After bringing my computer to three other companies - all who said my data was lost and gone forever - Carolina Data Recovery found and restored it as easy as 1 - 2 - 3. After all the ups and downs and horrors of computer problems, I'm so glad I found a place to go!”
