- No, AltaVault is designed to function as a local interface to your cloud provider and cannot act as standalone Network Attached Storage (NAS)
Appliance functions include but are not limited to:
- local caching
- local network access by certain NAS protocols, including NFS and CIFS/SMB.
Without a valid and reachable cloud bucket, the service cannot start and appliance functionality is limited.
- Cannot store or access data via NAS protocols.
