Tyler's Test System Specifications






After connecting power and Ethernet, firing up the unit and going to the WebGUI setup address, we are greeted with the image above. This allows you to choose between quick or customized setup




Moving through setup, we are greeted with the storage menu, allowing setup of our storage pool and RAID mode.




Seen above, the desktop offers icons for File Management, Backup, Monitoring and Cloud Sync. Down below we have the dock where you can move shortcut or access the control panel.




Diving into the control panel, we have several rows within. These allow you to setup everything from network to maintenance and power, storage and users even Time Machine for macOS users.



General settings include, platform naming and data and time management.




Storage gives you access to disks, pools, and volumes along with setup of SSD Cache and iSCSI.




Moving to file sharing, we have setup of users, groups and folders.




Network services include CIFS, AFP and NFS along with FTP and Rsync.




The apps menu is quite sparse but does offer AV, SQL Server, and Web Server along with VPN and Media Library.




Backup options include snapshot, remote backup to another server or cloud backup. If you have a second Qsan appliance you can configure Xmirror with allows Qsan units to replicate on-the-fly.




The monitor allows a look at the hardware temps and resource usage.




Moving into desktop PC software, Qsan XReplicator is free and works with your Qsan NAS platform to enable automated backups of your data on any platform. You just have to choose a PC, Disk or Folder as the source.




After choosing what you would like to work with we move into choosing the actual data we want backed up. For me, I'm backing up an entire partition.




Destination chosen as the NAS.




Choose the folder within the Qsan.
