NAS stands for Network-attached Storage and is generally regarded as the storage server which is file-level. It is connected to a server and is mainly responsible to make sure that the access has been provided to a group of users. When it comes to storing and accessing the files, all the responsibilities are beard by the NAS which can be a software or a hardware. On the other side, HDFS is a distributed file system and is actually based on commodity hardware.
