Like I previously shared, my Husband's company is expanding to Abu Dhabi. The management is expecting the new branch to be fully operational by January 2011. Preparations are now in full swing and Hubby, being the Design Manager for Abu Dhabi branch was asked what else were needed for a smooth start.
Hubby will be working with around 21 Design Engineers all of them with individual computers. So he requested for NAS storage so that all of them will have access to the company's project files. Fortunately, the company agreed as there are affordable NAS storage unit now unlike in the beginning when it sold very expensive. With so many brands to choose from and big names like Western Digital and Buffalo joining the market, finding a quality NAS storage is now easier and affordable.
For those wondering, NAS is short for network-attached storage. It is a file-level computer data storage connected to a computer network. And because of its convenience - providing faster data access to numerous computers, easy administration, and simple configuration - it is slowly gaining popularity.
