Direct Attached Storage (DAS) is storage directly connected to the computer in some shape or form, as opposed to storage accessed over a computer network; thus making your data inaccessible to other computers.
Most computers and many servers already have DAS installed in their system. Thus there is no need for purchase and deployment of network hardware such as switches, routers, connections and cabling. To add more storage, you can simply purchase a storage device and one cable at the most, therefore saving expenses.
Control Access of Data
Ease of Use
When using DAS, one can simply save files. Unlike on other storage options, these files can be viewed, renamed and deleted. Deployment of DAS may require some configurations but it is simple enough for a user to perform without guidance.

Greater Data Security
DAS Storage is accessible from the device to which it is attached. Since DAS does not require any networking, the files can be accessed and shared only by the host of that device.
