Network storage solutions Central Coast

Many clients, both new and existing, ask us: Do we really need this chunky network server sitting in our Central Coast office and what does it actually do? It is a difficult one to answer unless we know your business and how it operates. It generally depends on how many staff you have, what applications you run within the network, what file permissions and how deep your file structure goes. 

From our findings, in most of the networks we come across these days, a server is only being used for file sharing, which can be costly in terms of consumption of power, maintenance and security. 


Network Attached Storage (NAS) Device Options

We always like to have some sort of cost comparison for our clients when it comes to weighing up if they need a server or should implement a storage device called a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device. A NAS can be a cost-effective solution compared to a new server. It connects to your network and acts as a "File Server" where you can share out some/certain/all files and folders to your staff. They come in many different shapes and sizes so when the time comes to consider saving money on IT overheads, this may suit your business needs.
