Software Features


QNAP has always done a really good job of listing all of their software features. The list is exhaustive and there is no way we can get through it all in one sitting.




There are some new features that are included with the new 3.5 software. Starting out with the RAID, level 10 has been added and is now part of the standard set of RAID levels offered. Most users will opt to run RAID 5 or RAID 6, but we are glad to see QNAP pushing the envelope with additional functions.


Cloud computing has been getting a lot of press lately and the new software brings two cloud technologies to QNAP products. The first is MyCloudNAS Remote Access, an easier way to access your cloud from the internet. The second is ElephantDrive Cloud Storage, an easier way to backup your data through the internet. We'll show this feature off in great detail in the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for our private cloud article.


Other software improvments / new features include Download Station 2, Advanced Print Server, USB WiFi Network Adapter Support, Virtual LAN Support, easier to use System Management Features for migration of user accounts and Folder Permissions, and the final addition is Real-time Remote Replication.
