Object Storage vs. NAS

What is NAS?

NAS, or Network Attached Storage, is the main and primary shared storage architecture for file storage, which has been the ubiquitous and familiar way to store data for a long time, based on a traditional file system comprising files organized in hierarchical directories.

What are the Benefits of NAS?

File storage has been around for so long that it is ingrained in IT and consumer domains. Devices and applications out there leverage such an interface when it comes to storing or retrieving data. Familiarity and compatibility are the main benefits making file storage, and therefore NAS, prevalent.
