The threat of data loss is a key concern for IT managers. One simple and time-honed method of ensuring the integrity of business-critical data is to make sure it is regularly backed up. Companies not keen on a cloud-based replication service can employ a network attached storage (NAS) device, but how does one correctly identify the best features for their organization? In this slideshow, Paul Mah highlights the features he considers to be the most important.
