As your collections of photos, videos and other files keep growing, ensuring that you keep them securely stored while remaining conveniently accessible can become a challenge. With a home cloud provided by QNAP NAS, you can confidently store files and gain universal access from your computers and mobile devices – including the ability to easily share them with your family and friends.
Streamlined network configuration for hassle-free remote access
No two network connections are alike, and not everyone understands port forwarding settings. With QNAP’s CloudLink your QNAP NAS will automatically select the best connection method. By linking your QNAP ID with your QNAP NAS account, CloudLink will take care of the rest – providing you with the convenience of a home cloud without needing to dig through complex networking settings.
