Aiming to provide the best practices for enterprise systems to SMB customers, QNAP adapted the nested RAID level management and now supports the RAID 50/60 Storage Pool configurations. RAID 50/60 offers more flexibility for business users to freely create a highly protected storage with increased performance and capacity using either all HDD for backup or all flash storage for online video editing or database service.

Optimized Performance for VMware Virtualization with iSER

The TS-x73U series with dual 10GbE SFP+ ports (LAN10G2SF-MLX) supports the iSCSI Extensions for RDMA (iSER) protocol to boost data transfer performance of the NAS as VMware®ESXi storage and to reduce the CPU load of the ESXi server. iSER can provide up to 20% of increased performance, providing an essential tool to optimize demanding virtualization applications.

QTS 4.3 – The Most Intelligent and Intuitive NAS Operating System

The TS-x73U natively supports the new 64-bit QTS 4.3 operating system. QTS 4.3 provides robust features to enhance management efficiency, including the intelligent Qtier™ 2.0 that learns from NAS usage, analyses system performance and peak usage hours to process auto tiering; Qfiling that helps categorize files based on schedules to make organizing files automatic and efficient, and much more. With its intuitive and simplified user interface, QTS features an intelligent desktop allows you to find desired functions quickly, create or group shortcuts, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, and open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently, bringing greater working efficiency. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms, and geography to bring optimized cloud experiences and incorporates advanced features.

Cross-Platform File Sharing, Centralized Data Storage

The TS-x73U supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows®, Mac®, Linux®/UNIX® networks. Data, logs and ISO images of CDs and DVDs can be centrally stored on the TS-x73U. The Windows AD® and LDAP services enable system administrators to configure user permissions by using an existing Windows AD server, LDAP server or built-in LDAP service. The TS-x73U supports SAMBA v4 and can act as a Windows domain controller to manage privilege settings.

Well-Rounded Backup Solutions to Secure Data

The TS-x73U is a comprehensive centralized backup centre for multiple files. You can use QNAP NetBak Replicator to back up files on Windows® (including Outlook® email archives) to the TS-x73U, or use Time Machine® for Mac® data backup. A wide range of third-party backup software such as Acronis® True Image™, Symantec Backup Exec™ and Commvault® are also supported to facilitate system backup and restoration.

Data Backup, Recovery, and Synchronization

QNAP Hybrid Backup Sync provides a well-rounded solution for data backup, file synchronization and disaster recovery. With Hybrid Backup Sync, you can easily and securely backup data from your NAS to several local, remote and cloud storage spaces. In the event of system crashes or critical hardware failure, you can quickly restore data from these storage spaces, minimizing downtime and reducing overall loss. Hybrid Backup Sync also takes advantage of cloud storage for one-way sync of your data to cloud storage through RTRR, Rsync, FTP, SMB protocols, or two-way sync of your NAS with remote NAS/cloud services.

Datastore for Virtualized Environments

The TS-x73U is an iiSCSI/IP-SAN storage that supports VMware® and Citrix®, and is compatible with Microsoft® Hyper-V® and Windows Server 2012® R2, fulfilling the need for flexible deployment and management in virtualization environments. The TS-x73U supports VMware VAAI and Microsoft ODX to increase performance by allowing offloaded data transfer for ESXi server and Hyper-V respectively, and supports QNAP vSphere Client plug-in and QNAP SMI-S provider with enhanced operational efficiency and management in virtualization applications.

Share and Sync Files Across Devices

The TS-x73U supports SMB, NFS and AFP, allowing you to quickly share files to Windows®, Mac®, and Linux®/UNIX® devices. With QNAP's Qsync utility, the TS-x73U becomes a safe and effective data center for file synchronization. Any file uploaded to TS-x73U can be synchronized to all the linked devices such as computers, laptops and mobile devices. You can also sync shared folders for greater flexibility of collaboration and file sharing.

Storage for Hosting Virtual Machines and Containerized Applications

Virtualization Station allows you to host virtual machines (VM) on the TS-x73U and access them via a web browser or VNC. Virtualization Station supports multiple operating systems, fast VM creation, VM backup & restoration, VM import/export, snapshot, and Device Management for centrally managing VMs. Virtualization Station allows the TS-x73U, VMs and containers to share the same LAN port. No longer constrained by physical network performance, high-speed virtual switches accelerate data transfer between VMs, containers and NAS through the internal interface. The TS-x73U also features Container Station, which integrates LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies. You can operate multiple isolated Linux® systems on the TS-x73U as well as download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry®. Containers Station also supports the QIoT Containers platform that helps quickly structure your IoT environment and deployment on your private IoT cloud.

Qfiling Automates your File Organization

Qfiling helps automate file organization for sorting files scattered across multiple folders, helping to reduce the time needed for finding important files. Users can categorize files and determine filing conditions, and schedule filing tasks to be carried out periodically. The "Recipe" feature allows users to save frequently-used filing conditions as an "exclusive recipe", and then the next Qfiling task can be run with just one click using the recipe.v

Centralized Email and Contact Management for Improved Communication Workflows

It can be time-consuming to manage emails and contact information that are scattered across multiple computers, devices, and accounts - not to mention if important emails or contact information are lost or become inaccessible due to account closure or device malfunction/loss. QNAP QmailAgent and Qcontactz can help you centrally store and manage emails and contact information, making them accessible to all of your devices at any time - and with the powerful Qsirch search engine, you can easily find specific contacts and emails whenever needed.
