PrimeArray NAS is relatively easy to set up
Setting up a PrimeArray NAS is relatively easy — it does not require much more tech knowledge than it took to set up Windows and navigate to this web page. Although NAS units have their own processor, motherboard, and RAM, most are controlled through an internet browser using a simple interface designed to be suitable for all users.

PrimeArray NAS offers peace of mind
Most computer users can relate to losing data. Your computer was infected with a virus and you had to reformat and ended up losing everything. Your hard drive failed. The SD card with your not-yet-backed-up business photos vanished. It happens. PrimeArray NAS can ultimately help you to avoid these scenarios. Files are saved on the NAS and accessed by your PC, meaning you won't lose any data if your PC hard drive or OS fails. A RAID 5 NAS setup using four drives allows for a drive to fail completely without losing any data. Replace the faulty drive and get back to work; the volume will be rebuilt in a few hours and you can still access your data, albeit it slowly, during the process.
PrimeArray NAS offers increased storage space
A common problem among PC users is a lack of storage space. Imagine: your desktop has three hard drives already, and you need to add more for all the 4K movies you just bought. Instead of transferring your files from one hard drive to another, larger hard drive, invest in a PrimeArray NAS. It can be expanded, and it can be accessed by multiple people from multiple devices.
PrimeArray NAS makes file sharing easy
Having a hub in your home for movies, songs, photos, and games is easy to achieve with a NAS. Say you have movies on your beast of a desktop in the office upstairs, but your TV is in the rec room downstairs. Your NAS makes it easy to access those files from any other computer in the house, including the Xbox One attached to your TV.
Small businesses and offices will benefit from multiple people being able to manage, store, version, and backup files from a single location instead of spreading out across all the machines in the office. Conversely, it is much easier for one person to access multiple files belonging to one project when they're kept on a centralized hub rather than multiple computers. USB printers that are not capable of wireless printing can be shared across the office or home with PrimeArray NAS.
If you want to get particularly crazy with your backups, keep in mind that it's much easier to back up a single location (i.e. your PrimeArray NAS) than it is to back up multiple computers. All types of user will find an appropriate NAS, as they range in storage size from hundreds of gigabytes to several terabytes.
PrimeArray NAS isn't throttled by ISP transfer speeds
Transfer speeds between computers and a PrimeArray NAS using a Gigabit Ethernet connection can technically get up to 125MB/s, but most hard drives can only reach transfer speeds of about 70MB/s. Compare this with a cloud service where your transfer speeds are limited by your internet plan, bandwidth usage, and even the cloud service itself.
PrimeArray NAS offers security features
PrimeArray NAS units feature some type of encryption for disk volumes. This adds another level of security on top of the fact that your drives can be, if you wish, kept off the public internet. If your laptop is stolen it won't have your files on it — they're kept secure and separate on your NAS. In an office setting, it's much easier to keep tabs on one centralized NAS rather than multiple computers. Users might give individual computers access that isn't exactly secure, and you could suffer from the vulnerability before it is noticed.
Reasons to upgrade a NAS
Reason for upgrade the storage capacity of NAS
Upgrade the HDDs in my NAS when the storage capacity hits around 80% filled. Of course, I’ll always try to house keep the contents in the NAS, empty out the recycle bins, remove unwanted backups and time machine images prior to buying new and large HDDs. Everyone will have the habit to stockpile files (and rubbish) in storage when we have abundance. That’s why regular housekeeping of the files in all your storage is important. Housekeeping triggered by the first alarm of hitting 80% storage capacity in the NAS can usually recover back at least 20-30% of the storage space and deferring the need to upgrade the HDDs in the NAS.
Reason to upgrade the memory (RAM) of NAS
If your NAS allows you to upgrade its RAM memory or even add on more cache, you should first consider what you are using your NAS for. If you are running VMs, Dockers, then the increase in RAM memory will certainly help your stuff to run more smoothly. However, do bear in mind that the NAS is still limited by its CPU capacity. Hence, just upgrade to the amount of RAM memory you need, don’t have to over-invest.
Do I need to have SSD as cache in my NAS?
For normal home usage of NAS, like as network storage or media servers, we dont need to have the secondary cache provided by the SSDs. It is recommend the use of the cache for power users such as online video editing or if your connected user base for the NAS is very high.
Factors to be considered before upgrading the NAS
Consider these three factors for when to do NAS upgrade: (a) Obsolesce and Support, (b) Performance and Demand, and (c) New Features. Nobody feel comfortable using products that have reached their end of life or do not have any more support. This is especially important for things such as NAS and HDDs as we are using them as our backup. So whenever OEMs announce any of the products that you are using are going to be end-of-support (EOS) or when warranties run out, always do a technical refresh (tech-refresh) to replace them. For the second factor of performance and demand, always consider upgrading the setups whenever the equipment non longer is able to keep up with my workload demands or the performance you are expecting. For these, always consider interim or minor upgrades before taking the purge to replace the whole set of equipment.
