In the storage world
you may commonly hear the term NAS or DAS. These terms are simple reference to
- network attached storage or direct attached storage. The “NAS” storage relies
on your network, switches, and routers allows more devices to access the
storage. The direct attached storage method is usually one cable from your
device to the storage array.
There are pluses and
minuses to both options some of the big ones include
“NAS” is more
accessible to many devices.
“DAS” storage can
offer an extremely fast transfer rate from one device to the storage array.
With enhancements in
technology you can convert your NAS storage device into dual-purpose DAS / NAS.
An easy to install USB C or thunderbolt 3 to 10G can connect a NAS to one host
for extreme performance to the storage and allow the NAS server to still share
its contents over your network to the user’s. This could be incredibly useful
in a high definition video / 4k video server or performance demanding
application. One workstation could populate the storage through the thunderbolt
3 or USB C connection allowing the users to access it through the LAN.
A quick install of a Thunderbolt 3 to 10 GbE adapter will
give you fast networking connectivity to modern PCs featuring Thunderbolt 3
ports. Compatible with both Macs and Windows. Get the 10GB connectivity without
upgrading your entire network! Benefits include

What Are DAS Servers?
Direct-attached storage (DAS) is a digital storage system
directly attached to a host computer accessing it. Examples of DAS include:
·Internal hard drives and SSDs
·External hard drives and SSDs
·USB flash drives
Pros of DAS Servers
DAS servers bring a lot of advantages to the table. Here are
some of the most important ones:
·Easy to set up and configure
·These advantages of portable DAS storage make it
suitable for small to medium businesses (SMBs) that require a lot of storage
but don’t have large budgets for advanced storage solutions.
What Are NAS Servers?
Network accessed storage (NAS) refers to a self-contained
storage system that’s attached to a local area network (LAN) or a wide area
network (WAN). All devices connected to the network can be granted access by
the network administrator to the data stored on the NAS system. It comprises
portable NAS servers and network management software that permits different
users to log in to the storage system.
Pros of NAS Servers
Advantages you get with NAS servers:
·Centralized file storage and access
·More efficient use of data storage resources
·Easy data recovery
·Better data redundancy
·Save space due to their compact nature
·Affordable high-capacity storage solution
DAS Servers vs. NAS Servers
The main difference between DAS and NAS servers is that DAS
servers are a more localized storage solution. As such, they don’t offer you
the flexibility of file sharing and remote updating that NAS servers offer you.
When you need more storage, NAS beats DAS because you can easily add another
portable NAS storage device to your network as your data storage needs grow.
