  Direct Attached Storage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Direct Attached Storage (DAS) refers to a digital storage system directly attached to a server or workstation, without a storage network in between.
It is mainly used as a term to differentiate non-networked storage from SAN and NAS.
DAS controllers also enable shared storage access, which permits multiple servers (usually no more than 4) to acccess the same logical storage unit, a feature that is mainly used for clustering.

 Network-attached storage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Network-attached storage (commonly abbreviated to NAS) systems are generally computing-storage devices that can be accessed over a computer network (usually TCP/IP), rather than directly being connected to the computer (via a computer bus such as SCSI).
A storage area network (SAN) is very similar, except it uses a block-based protocol and generally runs over an independent, specialized storage network.
NAS was developed to address problems with Direct Attached Storage, which included the effort required to administer and maintain "server farms", and the lack of scalability, reliability, availability, and performance.

 Direct Attached Storage (DAS) | INLINE Corporation
Direct Attached Storage or DAS is a storage device that connects directly to a single server.
The result is that performance of direct storage is not as high as that of networked storage.
However, on a small scale, direct storage is much simpler to administer since you only have to deal with one server connected to the storage device.

A Direct Network Attached Storage storage partition is the area on the the Direct Network Attached Storage unit which is reserved for user data.
Direct Network Attached Storage units feature a number of redundant elements to enhance the operational fault tolerance of the units.
Direct Network Attached Storage units allow servers to concentrate on running applications such database, messaging, rather than managing file I/O. The network performance of Direct Network Attached Storage units can be further enhanced via the addition of extra network ports on the Direct Network Attached Storage units.

Typically DAS is a disk drive or disk subsystem which is either in the same enclosure as the server or attached by a short heavy cable.
Direct Attached Storage (DAS) is normally connected to the server which ‘owns’ it, by a SCSI bus.
Increasing the available storage space can mean either adding a server with its own storage to a network or bringing down a server and reconfiguring the disk system.

If direct attached storage is giving you backup fits (if it hasn't, it will), centralize and automate your tape drives.
When your server and storage infrastructure was in its infancy, you could probably manually manage your nightly backup operations.
So, a continued reliance on direct attached storage, let alone the manually operated sneakernet version, is out of the question.

Direct Attach Storage (DAS) can only scale along with the server that it is attached to, whereas SANs allow flexibility to use and scale the increased information servers".
As a result, storage devices that serve data directly over a network are referred to as Network Attached Storage (NAS) and are far easier to connect and manage than DAS.
Finally, given the fact that storage requirements are likely to double every twelve months, manageability of the information explosion is best done through scaleable implementations of SAN, as part of the Enterprise storage networks.

Direct-attached storage (DAS) is computer storage that is directly attached to one computer or server and is not, without special support, directly accessible to other ones.
The main alternatives to direct-attached storage are network-attached storage (NAS) and the storage area network (SAN).
In an enterprise, providing for storage that can be shared by multiple computers and their users tends to be more efficient and easier to manage.
