Today's high-performance
SSDs for mobile computing cost several hundred dollars, more than
laptop hard disk drives of the same capacity. As a result, many
people are unwilling or unable to pay the high price for the greater
speed of SSD. Additionally, SSDs offer fewer capacity options than
hard disk drives. Loss of vital business data means loss of time and
money. As business increases in size, it is not uncommon to encounter
problems when it comes to data storage. Without a proper system in
place to help keep track of business-critical files, the business
runs the risk of losing important files. Also in case of data
security, increased data volume makes it harder to protect from
hackers and other malicious threats, accidental loss, physical theft,
as well as hardware failure that may cause the loss of a backup
drive. For a small business, NAS (Network Attached Storage) offers style="background: rgb(255, 255, 255) none repeat scroll 0% 0%; -moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-origin: padding; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous;">an
