Hey Guys!

In a nutshell a NAS server is essentially a network shared hard drive. You access the storage drive over the network. A NAS can be a single external hard drive with an ethernet port or it can be an actual computer acting as a server with multiple drives on it in a RAID.

Most of the time an NAS is just a minimal computer with an embedded linux distribution that shares a hard disk over a network. Nothing that fancy.
