What Does a Home Network Storage Device Do?
Convenient File Sharing and Storage
Home network storage devices provide convenient access to your files from anything connected to your network. Connections might include hard-wired Ethernet cables or Wi-Fi. Unlike USB or external hard drives, home network storage devices allow simultaneous file access from:
- Printers and other peripheral devices
This means you can do everything from streaming movies in different rooms to sharing and editing files on multiple PCs.
Run Home Business Applications
Home network storage devices can also be used to run apps. This makes them perfect for entrepreneurs, software developers, film editors, and anyone that wants to work from home. Some even come with applications already installed such as:
- Communication apps like Skype, Slack, and Microsoft Teams
- Business solutions for human resources, finance tracking, and manufacturing data
- Editing software for film or music and word processors
How Are Home Network Storage Devices Better Than Alternatives?
USB and External Hard Drives
USB and external hard drives are convenient in some instances, but are limited by physical access and pose security risks. They can be lost, stolen, damaged, or compromised by connecting them to other networks. With only one hard drive, these devices can’t easily store large amounts of data.
Cloud storage from Apple and Google are great for sharing files, but they:
- Can go down and restrict access to your files
- Cost more per month for large amounts of data
- Lack resources for applications you need on your network
Advantages of Home Network Storage Devices
Home network storage devices (NAS) avoid these pitfalls by acting as your own customizable server. Barring a power outage, your files are always accessible. Because they have their own operating systems, they can run applications essential to your home. With multiple hard drives, you pay only for the storage you need and can backup your files wherever you want.
