Network Attached Storage use in industry to share same storage space simultaneously.
Network Attached Storage (NAS) are hard disk storage devices which you can connect to any network, and allow multiple computers in a network to share same storage space simultaneously. NAS devices are assigned with an IP address and are accessed by clients (PCs or laptops) via a server that acts as a gateway to data. Network attached storage generally uses multiple disks to store data and provides file level storage and access to data.
> Increasing government initiatives towards digitalization, growing entrepreneurial perspective among individuals in developing countries, and advancement in storage devices for small and medium size enterprise that provide better cost effective storage solutions are major factors driving growth of the global network attached storage (NAS) market.
> In addition, various benefits of NSA such as easy access over commonly used TCP/IP Ethernet based networks, support both CIFS and NFS protocols, and support multiple users connecting to it simultaneously is another factor expected to boost growth of the global network attached storage (NAS) market.
> Increasing government initiatives towards digitalization and increasing R&D activities for development of NAS devices that consume lower bandwidth is expected to present new opportunities in terms of revenue to players operating in the global network attached storage market.
