Techopedia explains Network Attached Storage Drive (NAS Drive)

A NAS drive is primarily a form factor or deployment model of the network drive. It is a NAS device configured to be accessed by users over the Internet. Each NAS drive has its own IP address that uniquely distinguishes it from other devices on the network.

It is mainly used in home or small networks using a NAS drive as a central and shared storage location.
