The sheer number of applications that ship already install on the NAS is an area in which QNAP dominates the competition.

It's actually amazing that QNAP is able to include so many functions in their NAS products. Here we have Surveillance Station, the ability to have your IP cameras send data to the NAS. The NAS then records the audio and video streams.

If a function isn't included in the install right out of the box then chances are you can add it yourself. QNAP lists thirty official apps and several more are available on forums.

Installing the add-on packages is now easier than ever with the new one click install. Just point your QNAP server to where the software is downloaded and hit the Install Button.

The Backup Server functions are now handled by RSYNC which has a handful of configuration options available.

A new function that is pretty amazing for all users in the new Antivirus feature. Your NAS can now scan incoming and outgoing data in real time just like your PC.
