NAS vs FSS: Five factors to decide which is right for you
There is a perception of equivalence between Network Attached Storage (NAS) and File Sync and Share (FSS) services, as both offer:

- Controls to allow users to have private and shared files
- Centralized administration and auditing
- A system that ensures access to the latest saved version of a file
- File-level rollback capabilities
