Advanced RAID Technology

RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) is to combine multiple drives into a single storage array with data redundancy. QNAP supports comprehensive RAID configurations to have better data protection. Based on the number of hard drives of different Turbo NAS, you can choose from RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60 configurations. Considering the performance gain and extra redundancy, you can choose the most appropriate RAID configuration to effectively reduce the risk of data loss caused by unexpected hard disk failure.

Data Volume Encryption

The NAS supports volume-based encryption to protect sensitive data. A security key or password is required to mount an encrypted volume when the Turbo NAS boots up. It prevents the NAS data from unauthorized access and data breach even if the hard drives or the device were stolen. Certain NAS models further support AES-NI hardware encryption engine that effectively offloads data encryption from CPU, providing faster, more economical data protection and greater security.

Storage Snapshot

Snapshots allow your QNAP NAS to record the state of the system at any time. If an unexpected situation arises on your system, you can revert back to a previous state that the snapshot has recorded. With the easy-to-use web-based snapshot tool in Storage Manager, you can easily restore your files back to any point of time to prevent loss of important data.

Volume Snapshot

QNAP’s snapshot technology supports up to 256 snapshots per volume and safeguards your files in every shared folder. It not only can prevent data loss from human error like accidental deletion, but also helps to mitigate the threat of ransomware.

LUN Snapshot

Whether it is block-level or file-level LUN, with QNAP's industry-leading snapshot, your stored data can be reverted to a specific point in time in the event of malware attack or unwanted changes. Check out the differences between QNAP's snapshot feature compared to others.

Snapshot Agent Utility

The Snapshot Agent utility is designed for servers to help create consistent snapshots for Microsoft® VSS and VMware® vSphere Client.

Snapshot Replica

Efficiently replicate volume/LUN snapshots to a remote server by only copying the changes made.

Snapshot Vault

Centrally stored snapshots from multiple NAS. Remote snapshots can be cloned as a local volume for data access.

Snapshot Clone

You can quickly clone a volume/LUN snapshot from the Snapshot Vault without interrupting the system operation.

Virtualization Station 3

An on-device VM hypervisor that allows you to host multiple virtual machines on your QNAP NAS

What is Virtualization Station

Based on the popular open source project – KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine), QNAP’s Virtualization Station is a full virtualization solution for all QNAP NAS with x86 hardware* containing virtualization extensions (Intel VT or AMD-V). With industry-leading capability and superior performance, we make it possible to run multiple operating systems on the same QNAP NAS, while centrally managing and monitoring all of your virtual machine deployments.

Virtualization Station also offers incredible versatility, from connecting VM’s directly through HDMI and using your NAS as a PC, to connecting to built-in network virtual switch, USB Devices, and even external GPU’s. Further, with built-in data protection features such as Snapshot, safeguarding VM failures and preventing data loss in virtualized environments.
