In the era of big data, there is a wealth of data generated and exchanged by the billion of devices on the Internet of Everything (IoE) and across hybrid cloud devices. The rampant data growth requires increasingly flexible storage solutions that will ensure business continuity. QNAP has strived to provide enterprises and SMBs with the facilities and tools to attain storage services to meet the evergrowing capacity demand and results in reduced overall operation risks and costs.

Besides managing data growth, another major challenge for an organization is its ability to keep existing data available and protected in the event of a disaster or system failure. QNAP’s flexible storage solutions incorporate features such as tiered storage, snapshots, thin provisioning, and LUN backup to better match specific business requirements and cope with disastrous situations.

The QNAP 12Gbps SAS is more reliable and has better storage I/O performance than the 6G model. Furthermore, it is backward compatible with 6Gbps SAS HDDs. Our 12Gbps JBOD Expansion enclosures not only strengthen the organization’s disaster recovery system but also satisfy the growing need to expand storage capacity at different stages as organizations seek to adapt to more demanding business environments.

QNAP NAS has demonstrated its ability to offer a complete product portfolio that fits for every SMB and small to medium enterprise, including a wide range of hard disk models and iSCSI SAN solutions.

Synchronize files anytime, anywhere

Sync in multiple ways

Full Sync
Whenever you add, edit, delete or rename a file on one computer, the change applies to all others linked with the Turbo NAS, so you have exactly identical contents on all your devices.

Full Sync
Smart Sync

Smart Sync

It allows you to remove files on one computer without affecting the copies stored on others that are linked with the Turbo NAS. However, when someone updates the files you deleted from another computer, you can still retrieve them in the Qsync folder.

Advanced Selective Sync

With both Full Sync or Smart Sync options, you can choose to only sync specific sub-folders within the Qsync folder, useful if your computers have limited storage.

Advanced Selective Sync

Share files and folders easily
