With Christmas just around the corner, families around the world are starting to prepare for the festive period ahead.
More visits are made to relatives and friends during the month of December than any other time of year. Therefore it’s essential to ensure that your precious moments, captured via picture and video, are kept safe.
Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices allow you to store, organise and stream those irreplaceable memories from any computer, smartphone or tablet. The web access facility means that they are accessible with one click from anywhere at anytime.
Unlike a personal cloud, you have full control over your files with NAS devices. You can keep your photos, documents, essays, films and music safe and in one place.
The NAS processing speed means it is great for streaming media files over the Christmas period. No longer will you need to spend time arguing with nan about why the ‘Polar Express’ is significantly better than the ‘Antiques Roadshow’ as with NAS you can stream both. In fact, with the LinkStation 520 you can stream up to four HD films at once – the perfect peace keeper this Christmas.
Here are a few things to consider when looking at NAS devices:
- Bigger isn’t always better – with so many options available for both home and business, make sure you choose the right device for your needs.
- Integration is crucial – whether you want to stream your favourite movies, listen to your favourite songs or simply play on your xbox, its multimedia servers provide seamless streaming.
- One gadget too many – how many and what type of devices do you need to backup. Are you an Apple or an Android Family, or are you both? Ensure your device works across a plethora of devices to offer easy file sharing.
- Back it up – As data loss can occur at any point, make sure you schedule regular backups and protect all of your data
So if you only give one gift this Christmas make it a NAS.
