Proactive Data Protection
QNAP SMART Data Migration
The data stored on the Turbo NAS is constantly monitored to reduce potential
data loss and rebuilding time. If the Turbo NAS detects a possible drive failure
or abnormal health status, the data will be proactively migrated to a new spare
drive. This ensures valuable business assets are well stored and protected.
Supports TLER and ERC
TLER (Time-Limited Error Recovery) and ERC (Error Recovery Control) are now
supported with compatible hard drives, improving drive error handling in RAID
applications. This latter prevents the hard drives from prematurely failing out
of RAID arrays, forcing rebuilds, and RAID volume loss. The data will be
retrieved more quickly when a hard drive takes too long to respond from bad
RAID Read Error Recovery
When read errors are detected in the hard drive blocks, they are automatically
corrected with healthy ones. The bad block recovery will run in the background
and ensure data is well stored in the hard drives.
RAID Hot-spare and Global Hot-spare Drives
A hot spare drive can be configured so that if a hard drive in a specific RAID
group fails, the hot spare drive will operate automatically. Moreover, the QNAP
storage also supports global hot spare drives which allow the administrator to
share the spare drives efficiently among multiple RAID Groups.
Abundant Business Features
The Turbo NAS
supports abundant server applications.
Multiple websites can be hosted on the Turbo NAS with the built-in web
server and virtual host feature.
By collecting and storing the logs of other network devices on the Turbo

need of any type of medical environment.
Secure Measures for Data Storage and
Unauthorized IP Blocking
Users can allow, deny or auto block specified IP addresses or network
domains which attempt to connect to the Turbo NAS via SSH, Telnet,
HTTP(S), FTP, Samba, or AFP.
The Turbo NAS supports remote login by SSH (secure shell) or Telnet
SSL Security (HTTPS)
The Turbo NAS supports HTTPS. Users can upload a secure certificate and
RSA private key in X.509PEM format issued by a trusted provider to allow
access the Turbo NAS by secure SSL login.
The Turbo NAS offers secure data transfer with SSL/TLS (explicit)
encryption. Passive FTP port range setup is also supported.
Encrypted Remote Replication by Rsync
The data on the Turbo NAS can be backed up to or from another Turbo NAS
or rsync server over the network securely.
FIPS 140-2 Validated AES 256-bit Volume-based Data Encryption
The disk volume with FIPS 140-2 validated AES 256-bit encryption can
only be accessed by an authorized encryption password or key. This
prevents sensitive data on the Turbo NAS from unauthorized access, even
if the hard disk drives or the entire system were stolen.
Advanced Folder Permissions
Advanced folder permissions allow users to configure folder/subfolder
access to the Turbo NAS. With this feature enabled, users can manage the
folder permissions from Microsoft Windows or the web-based management
interface of the Turbo NAS without complicated procedures.
The integrated antivirus solution for the Turbo NAS ensures business
continuity by offering detection against the latest viruses, malware,
worms, and Trojan horses with continuous free virus database updates.
QNAP Flexible Volume
QNAP Flexible Volume 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, thin-provisioned volume with space reclaim,
and online capacity expansion.
Block-based iSCSI LUN
In addition to storing data, the QNAP Flexible Volume can be utilized as an
iSCSI LUN at the same time. The block-based iSCSI LUN provides less overhead
which improves the overall read/write performance. The blockbased iSCSI LUN
takes advantage of Flexible Volume features such as thin provisioning LUN with
Space Reclaim and online capacity expansion.
Online Capacity Expansion
Increase the capacity size of the LUNs, volumes, and storage pools on the fly.
The Turbo NAS allows you to add more hard drives to increase the storage
capacity of the storage pool on demand. The LUN and volumes can also be expanded
online without interrupting the services.
Pre-allocate storage to give the appearance of having more capacity than
actually available. This allows you to consume storage on demand as data is
written to disk, instead of having capacity ahead of time.
Space reclaim complements thin provisioning so storage can be recovered and used
for other NAS applications. Normally when data is deleted in a volume the
storage capacity cannot be transferred back to the overall storage pool. But
with space reclaim, space can be recovered and allocated back to the overall
storage pool. This provides a much more efficient space usage.
Alert for Volume/LUN Threshold
An alert can be created once a LUN or volume reaches a particular threshold size
with email and SMS notifications. This prevents the storage or volume from
running out of space, and the administrator can add more storage space or expand
an existing volume if necessary.
Powerful, organized, rich-in-content
The new App Center makes it easy to find and install all sorts of apps and also
acts as a central platform to manage and update your installed apps.
Mobility and Remote Access
You can manage as many Turbo NAS units as you want with Qfile and conveniently
connect to any of them on the login page. Enabling the auto-upload function will
let your pictures and photo albums automatically sync to your Turbo NAS and
works as a real-time backup of your precious photos. Qfile displays a thumbnail
list view for you to easily identify the file type at a glance. You can move,
copy, rename or delete files on the Turbo NAS, all with your mobile device.
Qmanager lets you monitor the CPU usage, memory usage, system event info, and
active users. You can also remotely check the connection status or logged in
users to prevent unauthorized access. Remotely restart or shut down your Turbo
NAS, and use Qmanager to turn the application services on and off. You can use
Wake on LAN to power on your NAS. It only takes a single click and you are done!
