Hard drives for NAS serevrs and enclosures.

In today’s digital world, reliable data storage is a must for any business toolbox. Many small to medium-sized businesses (SMB) have discovered that the network attached storage (NAS) solution with the right applications can take their business to the next level very easily.

Choosing the right storage for your business NAS can mean the difference between getting by and moving ahead.
    
NAS-optimised HDDs: The right tool for the right job.

When it comes to building a reliable NAS solution, the type of hard drive you choose to operate within the NAS makes a significant difference. Like the hammers, wrenches and drills in a toolbox, hard drives are designed with specific jobs in mind – whether it’s providing storage for a small business server, sprawling data centre or everyday PC.

For example, you can build your own multi-enclosure NAS using low-cost desktop drives, only to find that your performance will degrade as your data demands and user access increase over time. You can also install the most expensive, mission-critical drives into your NAS box, yet your small business might never take advantage of the true performance due to bandwidth or application workloads. The large capacity and low power profile of an 8TB archive HDD might be enticing as well, but since the performance of this type of drive isn’t optimised for NAS systems, your users will be sorely disappointed in the timely access of data.

While great in certain applications, neither desktop drives nor archive HDDs are good long-term fits for NAS solutions. That’s where NAS-optimised hard disk drives (HDD) come in.

NAS in the home and business

In the home, NASes are often used for storing and serving multimedia files and for automated backups. Many smart homes rely on NAS to provide centralized storage for smart TVs, security systems and other Internet of Things (IoT) components in the home.

In the enterprise, a NAS array can be used as a backup target for archiving and disaster recovery. If a NAS device has a server mode, it can also function as an email, multimedia, database or print server for a small business. Some higher-end NAS products can hold enough disks to support RAID, a storage technology that turns multiple hard disks into one logical unit in order to provide better performance times, high availability and redundancy.
