Which of these would be most associated with a NAS?
A) Multiple PCI Express controllers
B) Ethernet interface
C) Wireless router and WAP in a single device
D) Proxies traffic
E) You can sail the seven seas
The answer: B) Ethernet interface
A NAS (Network Attached Storage) device is generally connected to the network through a high-speed Ethernet interface.
Since these devices are generally external to any standalone server, they don’t connect with internal PCI express controllers. There’s no need for wireless or WAP connectivity, and traffic proxy functionality is generally handled through a completely different security or network device.
