Virtual switches support several modes for connecting containers, VMs, NAS, and physical network interfaces for flexibly deploying business IT infrastructure while ensuring high security.

Secure your data with snapshots and Hybrid Backup Sync

A complete disaster recovery plan requires multiple layers of data protection and backups. The TS-963X can use snapshots to record the state of files and changes to them at the block level, so you can quickly revert to previous versions should an accident (such as deletion or malware attack) occur. For added data security, the Hybrid Backup Sync app can help back up, restore and sync files to/from local external devices, remote NAS and public cloud services.

Convenient file exchange with cross-platform file sharing and Qsync

The TS-963X supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows, Mac, Linux/UNIX networks. Data can be centrally stored and protected by rigid security measures provided by the TS-963X. 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. To sync data across devices, including mobile phones and tablets, simply install Qsync Central on the NAS and Qsync clients on other devices to enjoy a fast, private, secure and real-time file sync service.

More apps, endless possibilities

The TS-963X is powered by QTS, an intelligent app-driven operating system that provides key functionality such as Qtier, RAID 50/60 support, Qboost, OCR Converter, and much more. The QTS App Center also provides a wide range of QNAP and trusted third-party apps to boost the functionality and possibilities of the TS-963X, including QVR Pro, Mattermost, Acronis True Image, Domotz, and more.

Reliable, high-performance storage for virtualization

Supporting VMware®, Citrix®, Microsoft® Hyper-V® and Windows Server® 2016, the TS-963X provides a high-performance, reliable and affordable storage solution for virtualization environments. VMware VAAI and Microsoft ODX are also supported to increase performance by offloading server loading for ESXi server and Hyper-V respectively, and supporting QNAP vSphere Client plug-in and QNAP SMI-S provider with enhanced operational efficiency and management in virtualization applications.

Create a professional surveillance system

The TS-963X provides an intelligent surveillance management system for managing real-time monitoring, video & audio recording and playback to safeguard your work environment. You can even use USB webcams as affordable IP cameras with the free QUSBCam2 app. The TS-963X also supports QVR Pro, the next-generation QNAP NVR system, that allows you to arrange a dedicated, independent storage space for surveillance data on the NAS and leverage the advantages of scalability and storage manageability from QTS.

Note: QVR Pro supports 8 free channels for surveillance monitoring (expandable to 128 channels with additional channel license purchase).

Protect your data with encryption and other security features

The AMD Embedded G-Series GX-420MC processor inside the TS-963X features hardware-accelerated encryption, and is capable of encrypting volumes, shared folders, and/or LUN with AES-256 encryption without sacrificing performance. Other security features include 2-step authentication, IP address filtering, virus and malware scanners, and much more. You can also set permissions for users and folders to block access from unauthorized users and apps.

Easy expansion for future storage needs

QM2 - Upgrade your QNAP NAS Experience with M.2 SSD Caching and 10G in One Card

QM2 is designed specifically to upgrade your entry and mid-end QNAP NAS system! QNAP puts 2 M.2 SSD slots (SATA or PCIe NVMe) and one 10GBase-T network port into a single PCIe expansion card. Installed M.2 SSD sticks are covered by a giant heatsink as well as a smart fan for heat dissipation which ensure operational stability and longevity. With this PCIe expansion card, you can enable SSD Caching or auto tiering while populate all your NAS bays with high capacity HDD!

Application for QM2 SSD slots:

  1. Create a volume on these SSD and use them as extra storage
  2. Enable Read Cache
  3. Enable Read/Write Cache
  4. Enable Qtier feature
  5. Boost performance in case of memory swapping

What is Qbit?

Configured system orders start here!
The selected drives are batch controlled and tested using our HDD and SSD servers. Passed drives are then installed in the NAS with Volume and RAID set. Our pre-burn testing prepares the NAS with an initial system and drive testing cycle to ensure that the integrity of the entire system is tested and passed with no issues at all.

Our stress testing (burn-test) cycle commences for a minimum of 24 hours and extends to 48 hours if requested or required. This is undertaken in order to ensure stability when used in a normal environment. These tests can include extremes of workload (constant I/O's), CPU and memory use, thermal load (heat), clock speed, or voltages, bus and connectivity components, with the primary stress testing software aiming to test stability by trying to force a system to fail. Our tests put a greater emphasis on robustness, availability and error handling heavy loads.

Once the tests are complete we QA and pack the system back into it's retail box. Then it's double boxed to protect the unit during shipping. You receive your QNAP NAS Ready To Plug 'N' Store. It doesn't get any easier. Buy your NAS from the QNAP EXPERTS at QNAP DIRECT.
