File Storage Technologies Explained

Most PCs and NAS devices come with file storage technologies. They are also the most popular type of storage for data. It’s not hard to understand – just like a digital file cabinet files are stored in directories and underdirectories that are organized in a simple hierarchy.

You can access files by using the path or name. This allows teams to manage data as they can work together on the same file in different locations. This arrangement can be cumbersome when dealing with large data volumes.

For example, Corey can save a photo to the same directory as Billie however, she has to wait until he has finished working on it before she is able to make another modification. This is because of a process called locking, that prevents two people from working on the same file simultaneously.

File storage is typically offered as a cloud-based solution alongside existing storage solutions. This lets authorized teams continue sharing and updating files, however it eliminates the need for on-prem NAS hardware by replacing it with a cost-effective cloud solution. This lets you increase the storage capacity as your company grows without having to purchase equipment that isn’t needed. There is no need to maintain any hardware and you can count on the service provider to upgrade or patch hardware as required, thereby saving time, money and stress for your IT staff.
