QNAP 3.6x NAS Software Deep Dive

By: Chris Ramseyer | SOHO NAS/DAS in Storage | Posted: May 30, 2012 12:38 pm
Manufacturer: QNAP





On the previous page we saw the RSYNC Server function, but in the Back section is RSYNC Replication.




Another of the new features introduced in the last year is the ability for your NAS to communicate with Cloud backup services. At this time Amazon's S3, Elephantdrive and Symform are supported. Inside the NAS you can quickly and easily setup your account and input your new login credentials.




Apple's Time Machine is also supported in QNAP's software package.




Every QNAP NAS we've reviewed so far includes a handful USB ports. The newest NAS products even include USB 3.0. When you plug in a thumb drive or external HDD you can map the drive or even use it to back up your NAS.



External Device




We just saw the external backup function, but in the external device area you can add additional disks and volumes to your NAS.




With all of those USB ports QNAP started to find new ways to make use of the ports available. One of the ways QNAP allows you to better manage your network and office is the Print Server functions. With your printer attached to the NAS all of the computers on the network can print to one source.




Battery backup is important for any server. Your battery backup can interface with the NAS and even communicate its status to the NAS which can be checked from the software.
