NAS for multiple heterogeneous servers

I hear a lot about NAS providing central management of data for heterogeneous networks and servers that use different operating systems, such that the NAS servers/devices do all the file I/O requests on behalf of the client and deliver the data back to the user. Is that true?
Yes, that's true. The NAS device provides remote file serving for multiple heterogeneous servers. Since the storage is behind the NAS device, it serves as a centralization point for management of that storage.
