FAQ - Your PiBox Questions Answered
What is Network Attached Storage and why do I need it?
Network attached storage, or NAS, is a dedicated device that provides data storage and access over your home or office network. It's like having your own personal cloud, where you can store and share files securely with multiple devices. You need a NAS to keep your data safe, easily accessible, and organized in one place without relying on third-party cloud services.
Why are there unused ports on my PiBox?
A: As we build more features, we want to make sure hardware can support them so you don’t need to rebuy or upgrade. With PiBox, you’re future-proofed!
How is your network attached storage different from cloud storage solutions?
Unlike cloud storage, which relies on external servers and internet connectivity, our network attached server keeps your data locally within your premises. This means faster access, better privacy, and full control over your files. You won't be tied to subscription fees or worry about data breaches on external servers.
What information do you collect?
