Unified Storage Management

QNAP's Turbo vNAS business series is an unified storage system which can serve as iSCSI SAN storage and Turbo vNAS. The powerful Storage Manager can assist you manage iSCSI LUNs and volumes efficiently.

Intelligent Storage Manager
The QTS 4.1.2 Storage Manager neatly presents tools and options for managing system storage with an intuitive graphical interface. From reviewing the system storage allocation in the Dashboard, to managing volumes, Storage Pools, disks and iSCSI storage, the Storage Manager provides a centralized place to ease the work of storage management.

Intelligent Storage Manager

The Storage Manager dashboard presents an overview for IT administrators to easily check the storage allocation status. QTS 4.1.2 provides a more secure and flexible way to store and manage the NAS data. This next generation volume offers powerful features such as storage pooling with multiple RAID groups, thin provisioned volumes with space reclamation, and online capacity expansion. Just click "New Volume" and you can start to allocate capacity.

1 Disk information
Click to check disk information and disk health, scan the disk, locate the disk, or check the disks within the RAID Group.
2 Storage Pool
IT administrators can aggregate multiple RAID groups into a big storage pool to flexibly utilize the storage capacity as a whole, protect them using redundancy and allowing for better protection against multiple disk failures for large-capacity environments. Multiple volumes can now be created on the Storage Pool to provide flexible deployment.
3 Flexible Volume Allocation
QTS 4.1.2 allows creating multiple volumes on the St o rage Po o l for various applications in typical business environments with different workgroups. Each data volume and LUN can be extended up to 250TB without interrupting services.

QTS 4.1.2 supports two types of LUNs for efficient storage utilization: block-level and file-level iSCSI LUNs. The Turbo vNAS also supports multiple types of configurations for server connections:

  • single LUN or multiple LUNs per iSCSI target.
  • multiple iSCSI targets for a single LUN, only used for clustered environments

Block-Level iSCSI LUN
Besides storing data, volumes can be utilized as an iSCSI LUN. The block-level iSCSI LUN provides less overhead which improves the overall read/write performance.

File-Level iSCSI LUN
Users can consider file-level iSCSI LUNs if there isn't enough space for block-level iSCSI LUNs. The file-level iSCSI LUN can be used for creating a disk image for an iSCSI LUN.

Virtual Disk DriveVirtual Disk Drive - Increase flexibility of storage expansion
Virtual Disks provide a more flexible way for IT administrators to expand storage. By using the built-in iSCSI initiator to connect an iSCSI target of the TVS-x63+, you can create a virtual disk on the local server. The TVS-x63+ can be a stack master to connect up to 8 virtual disks or stack targets, aggregating storage space from multiple NAS systems. Thus, all NAS users only need to connect to a single target to access the space from all of the network storage devices.

QNAP high-performance unified and tiered storage solutions
Data used by enterprises continues to grow exponentially and with greater diversity in data types and importance. It is imperative to offer a secure and efficient storage solution that can process this enormous amount of data while minimizing the total cost of ownership.

Establishing a tired storage system based on efficiency and capacity can aid in improving overall processing efficiency. Enterprises can classify data accordingly by sharing folders with a file-based storage system and processing files that require more demanding data throughput with a block-based storage system to accommodate different usage models.

QNAP Turbo vNAS business series can flexibly configure different tiers to hard drives on a single unit according to different data usage needs, delivering the best unified and tiered storage solution.

Tiered storage for better efficiency
In the cloud era, enterprises need a storage architecture that can provide rapid access to dynamically scalable and virtualized IT resources. Classifying data into Hot Data (frequently-accessed) and Cold Data (rarely-accessed) to store them in a tiered storage can help achieve this goal efficiently and cost effectively. Businesses often use SSD to improve the overall workflow of random IOPS demanding applications such as databases and virtualization. Different types of storage media are used for different purposes. Hence, it is better to utilize different storage media according to the system requirements.

Tier 1 Tier 2
Storage Type SSD SATA HDD
Characteristic Balance of efficiency, capacity and usability Ubiquitous, convenient, and inexpensive
Usage Scenario Online transaction processing (OLTP)
Systems and ERP databases
Archiving, online and offline backup storage, disaster recovery
Usage Example Data, audio, email, database table, and video creation and other operations of the workflow in a virtualized environment Low cost and energy saving
Typical Use A wide variety of users and environments where performance is crucial Typical for data at rest
Criterion Weighs more on IOPS, throughput and resiliency Weighs more on data volume and low cost per TB

QNAP's Unique Transcoding TechnologyQNAP's Unique Transcoding Technology

Every year many SMBs produce hundreds of promotional videos for marketing purposes. However, due to the increasing use of HD videos (720p, 1080p), video files are becoming increasingly large in size and can use lots of network bandwidth to share or play them over a network.

Powerful transcoding tools
On-the-fly transcoding and background transcoding allow you to convert videos to optimized resolutions for accommodating slower/restricted network environments and device limitations.

Smart transcoding adapts to suit different bandwidth
The TVS-x63+ series provides a range of resolutions to play/share videos according to different bandwidth limits. Higher resolutions need more bandwidth, and you can select the right resolution for your network environment to get the best viewing experience.

Smart transcoding adapts

Multi-mode transcoding function

  • Background hardware-accelerated transcoding
    The TVS-x63+ fully supports offline background transcoding for 4K (H.264) videos. Just add videos to the transcoding list and use the Turbo vNAS to convert the original high-resolution video for use with multiple resolutions. Then you can select an appropriate resolution when sharing or watching to match your device or network environment.
  • Auto transcoding
    When you set a folder on the Turbo vNAS to be an autotranscoding folder, videos added to it will be automatically converted to a resolution you have set. For example, if you set the folder to 360p, videos added to this folder will be automatically transcoded to 360p as a background task.
  • On-the-fly transcoding
    If you have many high-resolution videos, but did not transcode in advance, you can use on-the-fly transcoding. This will adapt to meet bandwidth limits, with the Turbo vNAS transcoding in real time for directly watching the video.
  • Embed subtitles
    By selecting the Embed Subtitles option in the Transcode Management function, you can embed subtitles to a video when converting a video to any resolution. The subtitles will then be displayed when a video is played on whatever device you are using.
  • Hardware-accelerated transcoding technology
    With powerful AMD RadeonTM Graphics, video creation & conversion is faster, easier and can significantly reduce the time needed when handling concurrent on-the-fly transcoding tasks.
