A network-attached storage (NAS) device is a server that is designed to only share files. It will not do any of the typical servers actions found in a server system, such as file management and authentication. A NAS device also allows extra hard disks to be added to a network without the need to shut down the entire server down for maintenance or upgrades. The NAS is not the most important part of the server because it storage design means the server will process the data with the NAS drive sending the data to the user. The NAS drive does not need to be directly connected with server but will need to be somewhere in the LAN network, which can have multiple network NAS drives.
