QNAP Expands Capabilities of Its Turbo NAS Servers with Upgraded NAS Management Software

QNAP Systems, Inc., a leading manufacturer of world class NAS servers
today announced an impressive update to the NAS management software
that powers its business-class Intel-based Turbo NAS servers. The NAS
management software version 3.2, embedded as firmware, provides a
segment-leading iSCSI target solution
supporting SPC-3 persistent reservation, MPIO and MC/S allowing
forward-thinking SMB and corporate customers the ability to deploy the
NAS as a storage server in the virtualized and clustered
infrastructure. Additionally, the newly updated management software
also steps up its backup capabilities by adding Apple Time Machine
support and even redundant backups to Amazon’s S3 cloud storage

In addition, for ease of management, IT administrators can also
benefit from the DFS support (Share Folder Aggregation), import of
user-list, and customizable Daylight Saving Time. Further, the
next-generation Internet Protocol, IPv6, has also been incorporated for
future networking evolution. QNAP’s Web File Manager 2 features an
entirely redesigned user interface and functionality for improved file
sharing and management. WebDAV is also available for users to
collaboratively share, access, and edit files over HTTP and HTTPs.

"The V3.2 firmware brings the advanced and competitive iSCSI solution,
backup, and management features, which effectively offer a competitive
and secure solution to serve administrators" said James Wu, Product
Manager of QNAP Systems, Inc. Besides, to increase its usability, the
new 3.2 NAS management firmware also includes two new languages – Dutch
and Czech, for its management interface. "We’ve also made numerous
improvements to make our business-class models more efficient to manage
for administrators and lay a foundation for future improvements." Mr.
Wu added.
