An NAS device is a storage device connected to a network that allows storage and retrieval of data from a central location for authorised network users and varied clients. NAS devices are flexible and scale out, meaning that as you need additional storage, you can add to what you have. NAS is like having a private cloud in the office. It’s faster, less expensive and provides all the benefits of a public cloud on site, giving you complete control.
All your files, in one place.
Do you get frustrated searching endlessly through endless folders, computers, and external drives? Consolidate all your files into one location and find what you need in mere seconds.
Back up your files. Never lose a thing.
No more dedicated external hard drives for your backups. QTS provides multiple convenient backup options, including Apple Time Machine for Mac®, QNAP NetBak Replicator for Windows®, USB one-touch copy function, remote backup via RTRR/rsync, and cloud backup solutions for a comprehensive disaster recovery plan, no matter what devices you are using.
Share files anytime, from anywhere.
No more carrying external HDDs and USBs! Now you can access your files on the NAS anytime, anywhere from any device, securely, and easily. No more handing over the drives to your friends one-by-one to share documents, photos, music, or videos. QTS offers several convenient ways to share including email attachments, sharing links, and sharing on your favorite social networks, making sharing easier than ever.
Multiple built-in protections for your data.
Securing your data from online threats and disk failures could not be easier. Using RAID, you can still have your data restored if a hard drive fails by simply replacing the failed drive with a new one*. QNAP NAS support multiple types of RAID setups that are suited to all usage scenarios. Additionally, industry standard security mechanisms including 2-step verification, volume/shared folder encryption and instant alerts to mobile devices are also built-in enabling you to rest assured that your data is both safe and secure.
* Data restoration depends on what RAID type is applied on your NAS and not available for all types.
Cross-platform file sharing for group collaboration.
External hard drives are restricted to one device at one time. This is very inconvenient when it comes to group collaboration projects where everybody needs access to a synchronized document regardless of his or her location. QNAP NAS support SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP file sharing meaning your team members are able to access the files using Windows®, Mac®, Linux®/UNIX® or Android™ & iOS® devices. QNAP NAS also provides handy file synchronization across various devices, increasing work efficiency and collaboration across departments and branch offices.
