/ Insufficient Storage Space on Your NAS? TerraMaster D6-320 High-capacity Storage Expansion Solution

Nowadays, the continuous growth of data has resulted in an increasing demand for storage space. To meet the high-capacity demands, more and more users are turning to NAS as their primary storage solution.

NAS can store important data such as photos, movies, music and office files centrally. Compared with the service of public cloud disk, NAS as a private cloud, has larger storage capacity, safer storage data and faster access.Not only can be used by personal and home users, but also meets the storage needs of small and medium-sized enterprises.

However, with the continuous growth of data, NAS storage space may not be able to meet the needs of some professionals or businesses. Especially for professional groups such as photographers, designers, and multimedia creators. More and more photos and videos are taken, which takes up more and more storage space. In this case, people urgently need to expand their storage space.

Direct Attached Storage, or DAS, is used to connect storage devices directly to a target computer or server via specific interfaces. Common interfaces include USB3.0, USB3.1, USB4, Thunderbolt3, SAS, eSATA, and SATA/FC.

The traditional approach is to use DAS to connect to a computer to increase additional storage space. However, by selecting the appropriate DAS device and interface, it is also possible to use DAS to connect directly to a NAS for fast expansion of NAS storage space.
