The PaperOffice document management system is the only DMS system in the world officially approved by QNAP for your QNAP devices.
What is a NAS?
The Taiwanese company QNAP sells various network-attached storage devices (NAS devices) under the name "QNAP NAS". These devices allow both companies and private users to protect their data efficiently and to organize and use it individually.
A NAS is a file server with its own operating system that makes its storage space available over the network.
In the following article, we will show you how you can get the maximum out of your QNAP NAS for your company and how document management can work easily and without Docker.
Deploying QNAP NAS devices is highly advisable for any company of any size and any industry for document management
Why use NAS instead of cloud?
There are several reasons why you should use a NAS (Network Attached Storage) solution instead of a cloud-based solution, here are a few examples:
A QNAP NAS in combination with PaperOffice DMS offers your company a simple and reliable solution for managing your documents.

The database installation and setup on your QNAP NAS is not complicated at all and does not require an IT specialist.
Particularly because the operation of Docker containers is known to be an unstable and unreliable integration solution, PaperOffice has decided to provide a proven and reliable solution for data storage through the direct, native use of MariaDB.

What are the advantages of not using Docker containers?
Doing without Docker containers when operating a document management system (DMS) on a NAS (Network Attached Storage) has a number of advantages:
- 1. Easier to maintain and update: Without Docker Container, there is no need to worry about DMS and container compatibility, which can simplify maintenance and update.
- 2. Higher performance: Since the DMS runs directly on the NAS, it can fully utilize the resources of the NAS and thus achieve higher performance compared to a container environment.
- 3. No additional resource load: Since no Docker containers are used, there is no additional resource load on the NAS, which has a positive effect on overall performance.
