7 reasons to throw out external drives and get a QNAP NAS
Monday, 02 November 2015 00:00

Direct Attached Storage (DAS) has had its day! More and more photos, videos, and documents are produced every day and sharing access to files is more and more common. Traditional external hard drives are simply no longer convenient, efficient, or secure. Networked Attached Storage (NAS) is purpose-built for 21st Century work and leisure. Designed to support modern life, NAS is your smart, efficient, and up-to-date file storage, backup, entertainment, and secure sharing solution.

Why external drives are out of fashion?

External hard drives were considered convenient… last century! They were a simple way to store files—plug in the external caddy and, as long as the disc was the right format, not too full, or failing, it was ready to go. However, the overly simple and traditional storage solution no longer satisfies the needs of modern life. Imagine that you are at a meeting and the USB is at home or worse, it simply stops working. You have to remember where the presentation is stored because there is no quick way to search the external disk. You want to share a large folder of great holiday pictures with your friends, but they’re too big for email. These situations happen every day. There is a better way.

Why QNAP NAS?

151102-why-3f-1-all-your-files-in-one-place 1. 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.
2. 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. 151102-why-3f-2-back-up-your-files-never-lose-a-thing
151102-why-3f-3-share-files-anytime-from-anywhere 3. 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.
4. 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. 151102-why-3f-4-multiple-built-in-protections-for-your-data
151102-why-3f-5-enjoy-your-home-multimedia-center 5. Enjoy your home multimedia center. Going beyond centralized and secure storage, with a QNAP NAS you have a home server that also enables you to stream all your content via HDMI, Chromecast, AirPlay, iTunes, Plex, DLNA and Bluetooth supported devices and so much more. Your QNAP NAS is a very capable multi-zone multimedia control system, allowing you to stream media to different rooms from one single device. Enjoying memorable moments with your family has never been so easy.
6. Quickly find the right data with Qsirch. Manually searching for a specific file is very frustrating, especially when you need it urgently. QNAP’s Qsirch is the all-new full-text smart search engine to help you quickly and easily find exactly what you are looking for in seconds. Qsirch has intelligent predictive search built-in that begins searching while you type, highlights keywords in your results to make immediately identifying the right result easy, and automatically learns from your queries to speed up your future searches. 151102-why-3f-6-quickly-find-the-right-data-with-qsirch
151102-why-3f-7-cross-platform-sharing-for-group-collaboration 7. 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 AndroidTM & iOS® devices. QNAP NAS also provides handy file synchronization across various devices, increasing work efficiency and collaboration across departments and branch offices.
