It depends on the NAS box you're using and what protocols it supports. The most robust and fastest protocol, if it supports it, would probably be NFS. Without more details, your question is pretty much impossible to answer though.

Network-attached storage (NAS) is file-level computer data storage connected to a computer network providing data access to a heterogeneous group of clients. They typically provide access to files using network file sharing protocols such as NFS, SMB/CIFS, or AFP. As suggested above, NFS is most prominent and reliable for implementing NAS.

If there are enough details in the post, we would have been able to provide more accurate info.

Thanks for replying, I Knows only TCP/IP Protocol for Using this, I wanted to Know that How It works, and Which Utilities and Which tools or Software we could Use with it.
I wanted to Implement NAS in My organisation But I need full Understanding with its.

Is It need to Implement LDAP, or Simple File Sharing with SAMBA, My other Clients are on Windows Workstations...??

If the clients are running windows, then samba would probably be the best choice.

That's right. And A lot of information at all levels is at http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/.

In particular http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-Guide/ provides instructions for various use cases, from extremely simple, via small office to huge office environments.
