Type Direct Attached Storage (DAS) Network Attached Storage (NAS) Storage Area Network (SAN) Network Video Recorder (NVR) Just a Bunch of Disks (JBOD)
Storage Block level File level Block level    
How it works The simplest storage solution that connects to your computer/ server directly  NAS devices handle the files and folders as well as the user access control and permissions assignment  It's like hard drives in a server except the fact that hard drives happen to be installed in a remote chassis and are accessible by Fibre Channel or iSCSI   A solution that combines IP video surveillance systems and software to record videos through network An architecture using multiple hard drives, but not in a RAID configuration 
Protocol SATA, USB, etc  SMB/CIFS (Windows) and NFS (Linux, VMware), AFP  Fibre Channel, iSCSI, ATA over Ethernet (AoE) and HyperSCSI     
Pros Very easy to use, cheap Simplicity, highly centralized, cheaper than SAN, easier to set up  Extreme flexibility and versatility    Cheap
Cons Not able to share file via Internet Non-standard operating systems, capacity concern,  More complex, more expensive than NAS    No redundancy, no performance improvements 
Applications Backup, capacity expansion Mass file storage, VMware (think NFS)  Database, Exchange, VMware, Server boot  Network video recording Backup, capacity expansion
