What's a NAS

Why Does Your Office Need One?

Businesses with 50 or fewer employees need to store ever-increasing amount of data. They also require affordable solutions to back up data, share files, and collaborate on a single file at the same time. However, very few have the luxury of dedicated IT support.

“Wait, can’t traditional file servers and public cloud storage serve the same purposes?”

Many begin by storing files on a traditional server, but when backup, or collaboration issues arise, the server is quickly rendered inadequate. Others choose public cloud storage, which is convenient for collaboration but raises concerns about control of the data and costly subscription fees.

NAS can simplify your work and solve the above issues. Most of all, it’s easy to use and cost-effective. Let’s look at what else NAS can do for your business.

What Can a Synology NAS Do for You?

Seamless file sharing
Drive helps supports the SMB local access while also providing a web portal and mobile apps for remote access. By simply selecting a DSM account, you can share files internally with notifications. External file exchange can be done via Share File Links or Create File Requests.

Easy collaboration to boost productivity

Synology NAS also made collaborating with colleagues and sharing projects with customers efficient and seamless. Office enables your team to work simultaneously and interact by leaving comments. The Chat function allows your team to have quick discussions in groups or individually and never miss notifications. MailPlus allows for a private mail server and a web-based mail client to boost productivity.

Cost Effective Surveillance

A Synology NAS is more than just storage for your photos and work documents. Simply install its Surveillance software to manage and view IP cameras used to protect your home or business, as well as store their recordings at a fraction of the cost of an equivalent cloud service. Camera feeds can be easily viewed on computers, as well as smartphones and tablets with the DS cam mobile application for Android and iOS. Video surveillance can deter criminals and improve employees’ accountability. With Surveillance Station, you’ll get a wide array of security options to secure your investment and livelihood.
