As the deployment of IP-based surveillance systems has been escalated over the past few years, network-attached storage (NAS) is recognized as a reliable and scalable solution for small-to-medium business (SMB) which calls for application from across multiple sites.
For the users in the SMB sector, be it offices, chain stores, or multi-site organizations, they require a security solution that is customizable and easy to operate and manage. However, a common challenge in this sector is to easily keep up the surveillance systems with business expansion. System expansion is not an issue for NAS. Moreover, NAS is also an ideal option for home users, due to its flexible functions and ease of management and installation.
By keeping the data on the network, NAS technology features convenient data accessibility, scalable storage capacity, and effective management. Users can conveniently access the surveillance data on the network, even conduct further editing right on the interface for forensic purposes. With redundant array of independent disks (RAID) technology, the data is saved and distributed across various hard drives, ensuring no data lost even if a disk breaks down. Furthermore, it does not take professional IT knowledge to deploy NAS systems; it is a budget-friendly storage solution for average Joe.
