Network Shared Hard Drive

 14) Networked Hard Drive - Documents and files may require to be shared with colleagues and members of staff on your business network. The one issue with this is the need to have the files in a centralised location, i.e on one computer and for that designated computer to be turned on all the time. Alternatively, you can have a dedicated machine (a server) but this can be expensive to buy, time consuming to deal with administration, noise in most cases and increased power consumption. We would therefore recommend a NAS (Network Attached Storage) which is similar to a server but smaller, quieter, easy to setup, cheaper to buy and run.
