What does NAS mean?

NAS (networked storage) is a computer data storage server connected to a computer network.

You can store files on a NAS and access them over the Internet.

What do guys mean by nas?

“NAS” is an acronym for “Network Attached Storage”. In the computer world, NAS usually refers to a specific type of networked storage device. These devices are connected to computers over a network, allowing users to store and share data over the network.NAS devices can provide high-capacity storage with a degree of data security and reliability.

Does anyone have information on Network Attached Storage!

The concept of NAS network attached storage is better explained with a practical example. If we take a back-end disk array with a “thin” operating system, and then divide the disks for clients to use over an IP-based LAN, such a data storage system is called NAS network attached storage.NAS is similar to a document server that can connect directly to the network.

The NAS storage system is characterized by providing file-level I/O services to a wide range of clients via IP network-based network file protocols, and clients can perform file-level operations in directories or devices provided by the NAS storage device. When a user or application attempts to access a file, interpreted I/O requests are redirected to the network transport path. These I/O requests are transmitted over the IP network to the NAS server side, where they are received by the Network File Protocol, subsequently unpacked and processed for client-device mapping relationships, and finally the normal I/O operation requests are handed off to the file system on the server for processing.

I think it’s pretty much the same principle as network printers.

i/o=input/output [computer] input-output

“File-level I/O service” means that the client can input-output information in the form of a file

Information and its carrier media

Examples: records, specifications, program documents, drawings, reports, standards.

Note 1: The media may be paper, computer disks, CD-ROMs or other electronic media, photographs or standard samples, or a combination thereof.

Note 2: A group of documents, such as several specifications and records, is often referred to as a “documentation”.

Note 3: Certain requirements (e.g., legibility requirements) are relevant to all types of documents, however, there can be different requirements for specifications (e.g., revision control requirements) and records (e.g., retrievability requirements).
