NAS Web Server

Managing web content with a NAS web server

When you need a powerful yet cost-effective storage solution for serving content to websites and web applications, a NAS web server may be the answer. A NAS server, or network-attached server, is a storage device that uses a file-level architecture to create a central repository were multiple users and client devices can store and retrieve data. A NAS web server provides a smaller footprint for web content storage, enabling a superior cost-per-gigabytes stored to help deliver significant cost savings for storage budgets.

Whether you're considering deploying a new NAS web server or you're adding additional capacity to existing systems, you'll find that Thinkmate provides highly reliable solutions that are competitively priced and completely customizable to deliver cost-effective technology for serving data to your web properties.

What is a NAS web server?

A NAS web server is a file storage device dedicated to storing and serving content for web sites and web applications. A NAS server consists of hardware with drives, processors, and RAM as well as a lightweight operating system for managing storage requests. A NAS web server is connected to the network via an ethernet connection, and can be easily managed without expert IT skills using a browser-based utility.

NAS storage is well-suited for storing unstructured data such as documents, presentations, text files, audio, video and web content – the data that comprises the vast majority of rapidly growing volumes of business information. NAS systems are a form of scale-out storage architecture, where IT teams can easily add capacity to the system by simply adding additional NAS servers.
