QNAP and Arduino Team Up to Offer Private Cloud for IoT Developers
“Arduino provides low-cost, open microcontroller technology, increasingly deployed by Makers to create unique IoT devices,” said YT Lee, VP of QNAP. “We continue to serve as storage and high-end data processing, with an easy-to-use UI, giving users the ability to connect to and visualize the data generated by their IoT projects. From streaming IP camera footage, to home audio systems, sensors, smart appliances, locks, and security, connected things generate a variety of data types - with some needing to be stored for long periods of time and others only a few days. Storage, albeit often in the background, is a critical component of IoT.”
QNAP Enterprise Class TVS-EC2480U-SAS-RP (R2) NAS Models Receive Milestone XProtect Database Storage Certification
The QNAP TVS-EC2480U-SAS-RP (R2) and TS-EC2480U (R2) are the world's first unified NAS storage solutions that combine industry-leading performance powered by the latest Intel® Xeon® processors and storage architectures allowing up to 240TB of raw storage (24 x 10TB HDDs) and scalable up to 1,520TB with expansion chassis’. Coupled with QNAP’s renown embedded QTS NAS management software, both of these units allow for cost effective video surveillance storage expansion where Milestone XProtect is deployed.
QNAP Linux Station Fully Integrated with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS for Comprehensive NAS Multimedia Applications
"QNAP is dedicated to keeping pace with software development trends and providing greater service integration.

QNAP Launches Enterprise-class TES-x85U NAS Series Featuring Intel Xeon D Processor and Dual OS Options
The TES-x85U provides the flexibility of two operating systems, either the FreeBSD-based QES for enterprise-level storage with maximized business continuity, or Linux-based QTS for enjoying application storage with greater functionality. "With quality hardware delivering high expandability and reliability alongside powerful software manageability, the TES-x85U is highly suited for mission-critical computing tasks and applications," said David Tsao, Product Manager of QNAP, adding "The extreme flexibility to choose from two operating systems further allows businesses to deploy ideal operating systems on multiple TES-x85U based on their needs and goals in different stages."
QNAP Partners with Xopero Software to Provide Xopero Backup software solution on QNAP NAS
“Xopero Backup is a unique software solution for a pressing client need: unless they're a large enterprise, they probably can’t afford cutting-edge data recovery and business continuity tools,” said Xopero CEO Lukasz Jesis. “Small and medium businesses have needed to rely on solutions that are centered on archiving data - like backup NAS or off-site backups. Xopero takes the idea of containerization and applies it to all data. No matter what happens, users can instantly run virtual machines of their tablets, PCs - or even servers - and experience almost no downtime. These features have long been available for organizations that can spend $10,000 a month on business continuity, but now users only need to spend 1% of that to get the same experience on their QNAP NAS. With simplified installation and management, smaller businesses will see what we mean when we say 'Xopero works. So you can, too.'”
QNAP TVS-x82 and TVS-x82T NAS Series Support Upgradable RAM to 64 GB
“The TVS-x82 and TVS-x82T series are mostly adopted by business and workgroup users who have a strong demand for applications requiring excessive memory usage and computing power,” said David Tsao, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “By supporting up to 64GB RAM, tasks such as virtualization and online editing of high-resolution videos will be greatly boosted.”
QNAP Releases QTS 4.2.2, Adding Exclusive Virtual JBOD Technology: Expand Storage Capacity Using Unused Space from Other QNAP NAS
QNAP VJBOD is network-based JBOD which allows users to allocate storage space from another QNAP NAS iSCSI LUN as an Virtual Disk, then create storage pools, take snapshots, clone snapshots, or index multimedia files into the media library on the local NAS. With VJBOD, a QNAP NAS can use unused storage space from up to 8 remote NAS while at the same time being connected to QNAP expansion enclosures, providing it with massive amounts of storage potential. Moreover, VJBOD can be used in couple with 10GbE/40GbE network and port trunking (link aggregation) to provide users with storage space with high speed and stable connectivity.
