The QNAP NAS operating system is one with a seemingly endless array of possibilities. The vast majority of these are diskless and already have HDD installed, with the number of bays ranging from two to as many as 24, depending on the needs of the particular customer.
What that customer gets is storage capacity that’s much larger than before, yet isn’t compromised in the area of reliability. A key selling point is the ability of the devices to apply easy-to-understand principles that help expedite the process of getting it up and running.
While this system is more designed for the business world, it’s flexible to work for either personal or home use. Those businesses that use it might be small in nature or large corporations, yet the storage capacity has a wide enough range that accommodations can even be made to those that require more than 100 terabytes of capacity.
That latter group has the ability to take advantage of the Turbo NAS, which is yet another innovation from QNAP. Choosing a system with storage in mind is one reason why QNAP NAS solutions continue to be a major part of any conversation.
Even more of a selling point are the extension units that QNAP sells, with four different series making up this group. The EJ, TX, REXP and UX can provide backup solutions, with the UX taking the prospect of both HD media and data storage into account.
