Store your files on a QNAP NAS and access them wherever you are 24/7

QNAP’s Network Attached Storage (NAS) can be one, or many, hard drives connected to the internet which store all of your files and media just like an external hard drive, but it’s located statically in one place and you and other users can access it at any time, wherever you are – as long as you’re connected to the internet.

With a QNAP NAS you can:

Increase Storage

With high-resolution image, photo, video, and movie files getting bigger and taking up more space, you can centralise those files on the QNAP.

Backup Files

The QNAP NAS is your backup solution, so a failed hard drive or lost computer or laptop, doesn’t mean lost files. They will all be available on the QNAP.

Organise Files

If you’ve ever needed to access a file that is stored on another device, you’ll know how frustrating it can be. But with the QNAP your files are centralised so that you and your team can access them anywhere, at any time.

Share Files

No more attaching files to emails or memory sticks, you can use a unique link to share project files, invoices, quotes, whatever you need, all from your QNAP.

Secure Files

QNAP acts as your personal cloud, saving you from using the public cloud. Meaning your files and safe, secure, and easily accessible.

Access Remotely

QNAP is connected to the internet so you can access it any time, from anywhere. There are also apps which you can use on your phone to make it even more accessible.

Leasing QNAP NAS from HardSoft


The traditional way of sourcing tech for your business has been to buy it outright, but means high costs at the start and leaves you with assets which depreciate and become obsolete quickly. Leasing is a better way, it’s another subscription, just like your mobile phone, car, workspace, or even those extra TV and music channels. It makes it easier, and more affordable, to get the latest tech on a monthly subscription and then add to or update it whenever you need to.

We have a selection QNAP NAS available to lease on our website which will suit whatever you need for your business. Such as the QNAP TS-2483XU-RP-E2136-16G 24 Bay NAS Rackmount with 16GB RAM and Intel Xeon E based processing to keep your data safe and accessible at speed at £54.75 per week.


We also have the QNAP TS-673-8G 6 Bay NAS Desktop with 8GB RAM and AMD RX-421ND quad-core NAS with PCIe slots for adding M.2 SSD, 10GbE connectivity, and a graphics card all at an affordable £11.35 per week.

All of the QNAPs in our store come with our 3-year ‘No Quibble’ warranty, which covers you for the whole of your lease, keeping your hardware managed and up to date with on and off-site technical support from our trained engineers.
