Taipei, Taiwan, March 14, 2016 – At the opening of CeBIT 2016, QNAP Systems, Inc. (at Stand B75, Hall 12) unleashed full-throttle network-attached storage innovations, including the new Thunderbolt 2 NAS, versatile & compact M.2 SSD NASbook, the powerful Enterprise ZFS NAS with dual active controllers, and multiple game-changing features including network-defined Virtual JBOD, QPulse unified remote server management, Linux Station, Hybrid Backup Sync, and more. QNAP also teamed up with Seagate and WD at CeBIT 2016 to showcase joint solutions of QNAP NAS with a wide range of HDDs.

 

Next-generation TVS-x82T Thunderbolt 2 NAS

The new TVS-x82T Thunderbolt 2 NAS is powered by the latest Intel 6th generation Core processor and features an enhanced hardware design that remarkably improves computing power and system performance. The TVS-x82T series not only features Thunderbolt 2 technology but also has dual 10GbE ports giving greater flexibility to deliver incredible performance. Additional advanced hardware includes built-in SATA M.2 SSD, dedicated 2.5” SSD trays, compartmentalized smart cooling, tool-less hard drive trays, three HDMI ports (including one HDMI 2.0), and more.

“The TVS-x82T’s hardware is extraordinary and fully realizes tiered storage and rerouted networks for various applications with greater efficiency,” said David Tsao, Product Manager of QNAP. “It’s more powerful, multi-functional and reliable, providing a complete business-ready storage solution to build a reliable private cloud.”

Besides offering DAS/NAS/iSCSI SAN triple solution, the TVS-x82T series is capable of playing 4K, 60fps videos, and is a perfect match for Thunderbolt-equipped Mac users for 4K workflows, file storage and high-speed sharing.

 

The compact TBS-453A M.2 SSD NASbook

Powered by an Intel Celeron N3150 quad-core processor and up to 8GB RAM, the TBS-453A provides full-fledged NAS functions with RAID protection, but also can act as a switch and share network access with multiple clients. It supports up to four M.2 SSDs, features dual HDMI output and 4K H.264 video display & transcoding abilities, and supports HDMI-enabled desktop OS such as Ubuntu. The revolutionary compact chassis of the NASbook provides effortless portability allowing users to take it wherever they go.

 

Enterprise ZFS NAS with active-active dual controllers

QNAP’s supercharged ZFS-enabled ES1640dc with its dual-controllers is targeted for mission-critical business applications that demand high reliability and high availability. With Intel® Xeon® E5 processors, dual active controllers, ZFS, HPE Helion compatibility and fully supporting virtualization environments, the ES1640dc delivers “real business-class” cloud computing data storage.

The ES1640dc features the brand-new QES operating system that allows almost limitless snapshots, block-level data deduplication, and thin provisioning with reclaim, assisting businesses in building the most cost-efficient VDI platform and storage for critical data.

 

Virtual JBOD for maximizing sharing economy

In addition to using physical JBOD, storage of a QNAP NAS can be expanded with multiple NAS devices by using the VJBOD (Virtual JBOD) method. VJBOD allows users to mount iSCSI LUNs from up to eight NAS units to a host NAS as virtual disks, and they can further create virtual Storage Pools and use them as local disks for shares, applications, and even creating another LUN. “VJBOD introduces an economical way to utilize unused NAS storage,” said Ripple Wu, Product Manager of QNAP. “It provides users with an additional flexible storage expansion solution, and makes ‘Software-defined storage’ accessible to businesses to maximize utilization of available storage for demanding needs on file storage, backup, and more.”

 

QPulse: Centralized Remote Server Management Solution

QPulse is QNAP’s Centralized Remote Server Management solution designed for IT teams in every industry which relies heavily on computing devices such as servers, PCs, embedded PCs, and thin clients. It provides a single-point solution to discover, map, monitor and manage all of the critical computing devices on the network. QPulse provides customizable dashboards to simplify server management, increases visibility for the health status of mission-critical servers, maps discovered devices in a graphic topology diagram, and provides a remote KVM solution (supported for IPMI devices from Supermicro and IEI Technology Corp.) for IPMI and KVM recording/playback. Non-IPMI compatible devices are also supported.

Q’center: centrally monitor and manage multiple QNAP NAS

Compared to QPulse, Q’center is a light-weight solution that allows home or business users to monitor and manage one or multiple QNAP NAS from a host NAS, server, or even a laptop with the Q’center app or virtual appliance. It becomes convenient to centrally analyze storage space usage, monitor hardware and disk health, customize system settings and firmware, and deploy apps to one or more NAS units.

 

Linux Station for accessing the open-source Linux platform

Linux Station provides QTS users with a convenient platform to install the Ubuntu OS and services, and turns a QNAP NAS as a gateway for IoT solutions to other smart devices. The Ubuntu desktop can be output on an HDMI display connected to the QNAP NAS, allowing users to access the popular open-source Linux platform to freely install and develop more apps. As a private cloud combining storage and IoT applications, QNAP NAS with Linux Station fosters a complete IoT experience for unlimited potential.

 

Hybrid Backup Sync simplifies multifunctional backup and recovery plans

To enhance the efficiency of data backup, file synchronization and disaster recovery, QNAP Hybrid Backup Sync consolidates backup, restoration and synchronization into a single app for easily transferring data to local, remote and cloud storage as a comprehensive backup and disaster recovery solution. Users can experience an easier way to arrange backup tasks, and enjoy efficient management with multi-version backup, flexible job scheduling, smart data reduction, and more features.

QNAP Updates myQNAPcloud & Discontinues MyCloudNAS

Taipei, Taiwan, December 31, 2015 – QNAP®, Inc. today released the latest CloudLink app that improves the remote access functions of the myQNAPcloud service, making it easy for users to access their QNAP devices anytime through the Internet without complicated domain redirection processes.

By installing the CloudLink app, users can timely access the files on a QNAP NAS using myQNAPcloud or by sharing download links with contacts to track the task status. Users can also simultaneously download and sync files to a remote NAS from shared links without needing to first save them to a PC/Mac.

QNAP is devoted to further developing myQNAPcloud services and in order to provide greater resources to this development, it will unfortunately require the discontinuation of support for MyCloudNAS from January 15, 2016.

The new Follow Shared Links feature breaks through file-sharing limitations and allows users to sync or share files as background tasks between two QNAP NAS without needing an intermediate computer, saving users time and effort in setting up complicated network configurations. To provide additional resources for further myQNAPcloud developments, we have regretfully decided to conclude our ongoing support for the MyCloudNAS service. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes our users, but we encourage them to try out the smooth remote connection functionality provided by the updated myQNAPcloud service,” said Cherry Chen, Product Manager of QNAP.

To experience the updated myQNAPcloud services, the QNAP NAS must use firmware QTS 4.2 (or newer) and have CloudLink 1.1.45 (or newer) installed from the QTS App Center.
