What is a NAS and Why Do You Need It?

NAS stands for Network Attached Storage and acts as an external hard drive, but is connected via your network. This allows for remote access and file-sharing capabilities and protects photos and video footage from loss, corruption or disasters. The Synology NAS is an integral part of a 3-2-1 Backup Strategy: 3 different copies of your data, on 2 different media, 1 off-site. To learn more about Synology’s products click here!
