  • Network Attached Storage, a central storage system consisting of multiple hard drives, continuously connected to the network. The Gb network also provides decent transfer speed, and unlike a DAS, gives you access across different platforms.

  • QNAP NAS supports various 10GbE cards based on models. Please visit the compatibility list.

  • Yes, all management and administration pages are HTML5 web-based, it is designed for any kind of platform, including Mac, PC, iOS, and Android.

  • You can easily replace the smaller hard drive with a larger drive one by one after each one rebuilds online. Also, you can purchase expansion units (which are more economical) and expand drives as you go. Please refer to:

  • There are several ways to share your file on NAS:

    Securely share files with a URL
    Share with App Qfile

  • We always recommend users to purchase hard drives that are dedicated for NAS-use, such as the WD Red drives, Seagate NAS drives, but drives that are higher performance than the NAS drives are also suitable. We do not recommend desktop drives or surveillance drives due to their different spin rates, which might corrupt the RAID configuration of the NAS. Please check the compatibility list here before purchasing your drives.
