Network attached storage (NAS) is unknown to 42% of companies, and adoption is still far from widespread, with only around a quarter of respondents currently investing; nevertheless, it was selected as the preferred storage technology by a significant share of respondents in certain functional areas, revealing good growth opportunities connected to each industry's specific needs.
