How to use NAS as a cloud storage.

Hello Experts
I have a 15 TB NAS box, how I can use it as a cloud for my company so that all employees have access to it with credentials at any given time anywhere to upload and download the files.
Thanks,
IT

Please provide more information about the NAS unit.  What brand and which model?
Several NAS units have built in features to allow them to sync with cloud storage providers, or to make them available using a friendly web address (URL).

When I know which brand and model I can help.

Netgear ReadyNAS has the ability to install add on components.  Their new OS includes ReadyCloud:

Do you need step by step directions on configuring the volumes / shares on the NAS?  Do you need help setting up Active Directory authentication or are you using local user accounts?  Do you need help syncing the data to the ReadyCLOUD?  You should be able to do everything remotely from readycloud.netgear.com

Let me know where you need help.

Step by step for volumes and to sync with AD. I also would like to have an account which can be given out to anonymous users so that can log in and download whatever files are made available to them by my users.

Many Thanks!
