What value does NAS add to an organization?
Wow, that's a difficult question to answer without knowing a lot about the environment. Basically, NAS provides file storage that can be accessed by multiple clients where data can be shared and has a very low amount of administrative effort required.

If your application doesn't require block I/O and the utmost performance, NAS is a very cost-effective storage solution, both in product cost and in administrative cost.
