HP NAS / Cloud Storage

SORT BY:
Network-attached storage (NAS) lets multiple computers on the same network share important files on a secure server. HP NAS storage options provide access to any laptop or desktop computer working on the network, helping users collaborate on important projects. Whether it's for storing photos and videos on home networks or client documents and files on an office network, Staples carries a variety of NAS servers that meet the needs of any network.

Understanding NAS Systems
NAS options are hard disk storage systems that users connect to over a computer network. These devices eliminate the need for a direct connection, letting multiple users access information by using the IP address of the device. Connection to the IP address takes place over a server that is built into the device, rather than through external or cloud-based connections. NAS systems are independent, and they're designed for quick file serving. This ensures access requests for specific files and documents take precedence, minimizing wait times and maximizing productivity.

Choosing NAS Options
NAS is available with a range of options that affect the performance of the system and its overall capacity. Hot swappable units eliminate downtime by letting users replace components without shutting down the entire system. Cloud NAS options move the files from an on-site location to a virtual one, ensuring employees can access the information required, even if there is a problem with the server in the office. Models like the HP StoreEasy provide a consolidated platform that supports up to 25,000 users across multiple locations at the same time. There are options with hard drive capacities ranging from 1 to 48 terabytes (TB), ensuring optimal memory for businesses of all sizes.

How Does Data Redundancy Affect HP NAS Storage?
Data redundancy describes the condition in NAS when the same information is copied in multiple locations. RAID, or redundant array of independent disks, provides fault protection in NAS, ensuring users can access important information if one of the drives fail. RAID spreads the information over multiple drives, making sure there are copies available, even if multiple drives fail. There are options with 1 to 24 drive bays, ensuring a model that provides redundancy levels for small and large businesses.

What Are the Benefits of SAS Storage in an NAS System?
SAS (serial-attached SCSI, or serial-attached small computer system interface) is a form of direct-attached storage that handles archiving, backup and real-time accessible storage. Systems with SAS storage, such as the HP StoreEasy, provide file and application access, ensuring users experience reliable file access and high-speed data transfers within the same unit. This combination also maximizes availability of applications and data, even during situations involving software or hardware failure.

Does NAS Work for Small Businesses?
NAS systems benefit small and large businesses. The systems fit within most budgets, and they provide a centralized storage solution that provides reliable access. NAS uses RAID, which ensures simple data backups for enhanced protection of information. These systems are simple to use and install, reducing the need for a dedicated IT department. Most units are scalable, ensuring an option that expands based on the company's needs and growth requirements.
