Network Attached Storage (NAS) device is a storage device connected to a network that allows storage and retrieval of data from a centralised location for authorised network users and heterogeneous clients. NAS devices are flexible and scale-out, meaning that as you need additional storage, you can add on to what you have.

NAS devices are perfect for small businesses because they are:

**Simple to operate, a dedicated IT professional is often not required
**Lower cost
**Easy to use for back up of data, so it’s always accessible when you need it
**Good at centralising data storage in a safe, reliable way
