QNAP Home and SOHO Storage Solutions

When you require more storage at home or at work, QNAP is the answer. QNAP is a company name abbreviation for “Quality Network Appliance Provider.”

The emphasis is on networking appliance but storage is the name of the game. Lots of space from which you can share lots of things. And we really mean “lots of things.” Files, streaming media, multimedia apps, surveillance, backup… whatever you want to save and share. 


The latest QNAP units come with the highly rated QTS 4.0 software installed. Built on Linux, QTS 4.0 Turbo NAS (Network Attached Storage) operating system is shaped from the optimized kernel to deliver high-performance storage and sharing services.

The intuitive, multi-window and multi-tasking QTS 4.0 GUI (Graphic User Interface) makes it incredibly easy to manage your Turbo NAS, utilize its rich home applications, enjoy multimedia collections with more fun, and install a rich set of applications in the App Center on demand to expand your Turbo NAS experience.

As QNAP explains, “moreover, the QTS 4.0 adds value to business applications with its abundant features, including file sharing, iSCSI and virtualization, backup, privilege settings, and so on, effectively increasing business efficiency.”

Coupled with various utilities and smart mobile apps, QTS 4.0 is the ultimate platform for building a personal or private cloud, synchronizing data and sharing files.
