Cloud StorageMany businesses are debating on making the transition to the cloud, but before you make your decision consider using a private cloud service instead! You can get the same features and more with a private cloud solution. Here’s a look at three ways private NAS (Network-Attached-Storage) setups are becoming a preferable option for small businesses everywhere!

  1. Security

Cloud computing is extremely secure, and with a private cloud you are guaranteed the same security. Your data sits behind your company’s dedicated firewall, and as long as you are up to date on any virus program updates and have the right security precautions in place your data is just as secure. In fact, private clouds are the solution to even better security. Sensitive files are encrypted and unapproved IP addresses are automatically locked out.

  1. Scalability

Both private and public clouds allow you to make a customized server. You can add more memory, storage or CPU as your company calls for it. However, private cloud platforms grow with your business differently, they tend to be more customizable than many public cloud offerings, allowing for easy changes and growth.

  1. NAS Boosts Public Cloud Benefits

While public cloud services are convenient ways to add on more storage, setting these services up on multiple client computers can be complicated and time-consuming. With QNAP Turbo NAS you can use public cloud through your own private QNAP hardware. Therefore, the public and private cloud services can coexist and work together to produce the most efficient and safe tool yet.
