NAS OSes have come a long way over the last few years, and nowhere is that more evident than with QNAP's new QTS. With firmware 3.8 that QNAP's appliances used previously, things were always tucked away and hidden, making finding that setting you were looking for a tedious process going through every menu one by one. Now, with QTS, everything is in the open and the menu system just flows well. The added ability to customize to your preference is a welcomed addition, along with the ability to move icons around and run multiple tasks at once, even better.
I'm not one that's normally in the business of choosing the best NAS software, but from my perspective, QNAP has a top notch offering with QTS. Yes, change can be rough, but after using it for the last few weeks, I've really had the chance to get the hang of it.
Taking advantage of all the new features mentioned in this article, it really allows for quick management when you need to change a setting or manage storage.
Overall, I really like what QNAP has done with the new OS, and with tons of third party application support backed by the folks at QNAP, there is surely an application for anything you want to do with your QNAP NAS appliance.
