QNAPs are Network Attached Storage, aka NAS, systems which consist of one or more hard drives that are connected to your office network and the internet all of the time, meaning that you can access all of your files, multimedia, and stored data from anywhere, all of the time.

The QNAP is your server, as well as your back up drive and storage for both on and off-site data. You can store everything you create locally and access all of your important data, files, and media, from wherever you are in the world. It’s like an external hard drive that stays in one place but you can access it from anywhere. So whether you’re working from the office, from home, or on the other side of the world, you have the access you need to get the job done.

NAS Small Business Server QNAP TS-4738G

We have been offering QNAP NAS to customers on our 3-year Flexi-Lease for a while now but based on feedback from our customers we’ve worked with our Technical team to adapt our QNAP offer to make it more bespoke and work in just the way our customers need it to. And that’s why we’ve created the QNAP NAS Small Business Server, which is available to lease for £15.90 per week.

The QNAP NAS Small Business Server is made up of a 4 bay NAS with AMD RX-421ND CPU, with 4 x 2TB Seagate Ironwolf Pro HDDs 6TB Usable, 16GB DDR4 SODIMM memory, 256GB SSD M.2 SSD Caching, 2 x Seagate external portable 4TB HDDs, and an APC 700VA power and surge protection uniteruptible power supply. There is also the option to add Cloud backup with BackBlaze B2 Cloud backup up to 16TB.

This offers the same storage and file accessibility as a traditional server, but it simply plugs into your small business network and you’ll be up, running, and file sharing in a matter of minutes.


SSD Caching

Adding an SSD cache to your QNAP NAS, which will not only increases the performance of your storage, as well as maintains excellent storage capacity. An SSD drive is a persistent storage medium, this means that it retains data written to it and should there be a power failure to your NAS the data won’t be lost. SSD cache on QNAP NAS accelerates IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second) performance by up to x 10 as well as reducing latency by x 3 times for storage volumes. This makes it perfect for IOPS-demanding applications and improving workflow.

Uninterruptible Power Supply

An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) protects your QNAP NAS and all the data held on it when there are unexpected problems with the power source, caused by a disruption to the mains electricity supply. An interruption to your networks can lead to downtime and loss of data, with cost implications to your business. The UPS, unlike a generator, uses batteries, supercapacitors, or flywheels to maintain power when the main supply is disrupted, keeping your data safe.

Upgraded Memory

We have upgraded the RAM to 16GB DDR4 SODIMM with this QNAP NAS offer because this benefits the system when multitasking, as well as where individual applications need more RAM due to the nature of the processes they require the CPU to handle. It improves the performance of the software you use when you have numerous software packages open at the same time.
