NAS Explained

NAS can let you work remotely or in the office

If you have a NAS set up in your business, you can store data on it and then access it from any device you have, just like if it was a cloud storage. NAS id faster than a remote cloud server – from internet connection to server firmware, the connection speed to your NAS is only limited by your network speed and the NAS’ hardware. Because NAS is like a private cloud, the data may be accessed remotely using a network connection which means employees can work anywhere, anytime. NAS is perfect for any business that handles large amount of data, whether you’re a sole trader or a small/medium business, you can benefit from having a NAS in the office. Everyone that works in the business can access the NAS and leave files or pick them up and, with the right software, can even edit and change files simultaneously.

File Sharing

“How do you want me to send it?” is what you and I hear everyday during work when working with coworkers or teammates. Instead of waiting for a file to upload or attach to your email, you can easily send files by sharing a unique link for your project files, albums, movies and music.

QNAP’s are Network Attached Storage (NAS) systems consisting of one or more hard drives (SSD or SATA) constantly connected to your Office Network (and the internet), making your QNAP & all of your Files, Multimedia & Stored data accessible from anywhere in the world!

The QNAP becomes your Server, your backup drive, off or on-site storage unit that gives you access to all your important files and media whilst also being able to store anything created locally, seamlessly. Imagine it as your external hard drive, but rather than taking it everywhere, access it anywhere! At home or the office for you and your staff to use freely wherever you are working from. Our blog explains more on QNAP NAS Storage.

A NAS is a storage device that can connect 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, meaning you can add additional storage as and when you need. It’s faster, less expensive overall and provides all of the benefits of a public cloud on side which gives you complete control.

Data is a critical asset for any company. If businesses do not have access to their data, you may not be able to provide your customers with the expected level of service you would like to give. Loss of sales or team collaboration problems are perfect examples of unfortunately, what could happen when information is not available. If you have a data outage, this can contribute to lack of efficiency and potential loss of income as customers may not be able to wait.

Additionally, small business may find themselves faced with other storage-related needs such as lower cost options, ease of operation, ease of data backup, and growth capabilities. NAS devices are rapidly becoming a popular storage device in small businesses as an effective, scalable, low cost storage solution. IronWolf Pro hard drives are designed for NAS systems and we have them available to add when you lease your QNAP device.
