So, you’ve got a small network consisting of one server and a half dozen workstations, but the hard drive in the server is full. Do you rebuild the server with a larger hard drive? That could become one big headache, and your network will be down throughout the duration of the upgrade. The easiest solution is to add Network Attached Storage, or NAS, to your network.
The easiest way to add lots of storage to any network is to install NAS, or Network Attached Storage. Cisco’s NSS Series of NAS enclosures is available with different numbers of drive bays, with or without the drives themselves. The arrays make it easy to provide a network with up to 12 terabytes of storage.
