Worldwide Consumer Network Attached Storage (NAS) Market: Recent Industry Trends, Current and Projected Industry 2015 - 2021

Increasing adoption of video surveillance services isthe key factor boosting the demand of network attached storage and increasing its adoption globally.


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/10/2016 -- A network attached storage (NAS) appliance is a processing device that is attached on the network, primarily to store files in real time. The network attached storage appliance has its own IP address due to which it is easily accessed by end-users directly over the network to store files and retrieve them when needed. Network attached storage provides file level storage and access to files as it uses multiple disks to store files. One of the main advantages of network attached storage is its simplicity of setup. Moreover, NAS connects storage to the network rather than to a server, hence there is no server downtime. NAS devices use Linux operating system, eliminating the licensing costs associated with other operating systems. In addition, NAS devices support bothCommon Internet File System (CIFS), as well as Network File System (NFS), and are completely compatible with windows, Mac, Linux and UNIX clients. Owing to this, no specialized IT knowledge is required to ensure cross platform compatibility.

Increasing adoption of video surveillance services isthe key factor boosting the demand of network attached storage and increasing its adoption globally. Furthermore, due to advancement in payment models, multi-tenancy and reliability, increase in the adoption of cloud storage is observed. This is, in turn, influencing the growth of consumer network attached storage. Also, the demand for consumer network attached storage (NAS) is expected to be driven by increasing need for anytime and anywhere usability and accessibility to Internet networks. At the same time, a limitation of NAS systems such as operating system complexity and low processor power is restraining the market growth, globally. Moreover, lack of technical knowledge among end-users is also one of the key challenges restraining the market growth. Another obstruction in the market growth is its connectivity and transferring of large data. However, increasing number of Internet users and real-time use of digital media applications are expected to foster the demand for broadband services over the forecast period.
