I was wondering what forms NAS may come in? Thank you

Hello @Mlee thank you for your question:

NAS is categorized into 3:

  1. Enterprise NAS
  2. Small Business NAS
  3. Consumer NAS

The difference between these NAS classifications lies in the features the NAS delivers.

As the name suggests, Enterprise Network Attached Storage devices are used by big businesses and feature more advanced encryption and compression technologies.

Small Business Enterprise Network Attached Storage devices are usually mid-range and may not offer some of the advanced features that Enterprise NAS offers.

However, as expected, Small Business NAS devices are more affordable than Enterprise NAS devices.

Finally, Consumer NAS is used mainly by freelancers or individual that wants to share files with friends or families.

Thank you for your response, that helps me understand more!
