NAS (Network Attached Storage)

NAS is a specialized storage server with its own IP address that is made available to multiple clients and servers on a local or wide area network. Pre-installed network communication protocols are enabled so that clients and servers in heterogeneous environments with different operating systems may read and write data on the NAS server. Organizations may add disk storage arrays, tape drives or tape automation to a file/print NAS server, helping to simplify management and backup operations, improve utilization of storage resources, and serve as a centralized platform for cost effective scaling. A NAS Gateway connects to Fibre Channel disk storage arrays or tape automation systems in a SAN.
