NAS Drives or Network attached storage back-up and home server
One of the most common ways of doing back-ups nowadays except using cloud based options is to use a NAS drive. What is a NAS drive? NAS stands for Network Attached Storage.
The main reason for using it is that it is independent from any PC in your house or office and it can store anything. It is connected to your local network via cable or wirelessly and if configured properly can be accessed from any computer in home or office.
A NAS is also called a home server because it serves the purposes of storing many multimedia files. For example you can have a NAS drive set up so that it holds all of your music that you can stream using your SONOS system, all of your movies that you can watch on your smart TV and also cartoons for your kids.
