QNAP TVS-463 - a strong debut on AMD at NAS systems

Like many other types of equipment over the years and NAS platforms constantly evolve. And especially in premium brands such as QNAP, Synology, Asustor and Thecus is a tendency to shift the functions of pure network drive for data storage in such a home media center. This is conditioned by the requirements of users who need to save storage space for their files while they want more functionality from their NAS. In the network storage devices QNAP observed a second trend, which is aimed at building hybrid PC / NAS solutions. QNAP traditionally used hardware solutions from Marvell and Intel for its NAS platforms. Their new Golden Cloud line in an attempt to put something new on the table, turned to e quad processors G-series, AMD.
With this solution series is available 2.4GHz quad-core processor, featuring with Radeon graphics. 463 series comes with 4GB or 8GB DDR3 RAM which can be expanded up to 16GB. The new TVS storage devices QNAP is aimed at small and medium business. They aesthetic feature a new color scheme of gold, as the metal structure is preserved models and added front LCD. On the front side and the drawers are arranged for mounting a disc, provided and lock them. Currently the series is composed of 4 models, as the lower standing device QNAP TVS-463, intended for mounting the four discs. It is he who is the subject of this review. In this model, the presence of two embedded gigabit Ethernet network interface and the possibility of mounting additional network boards allow system administrators to get all of that is capable device. But all in turn. What offers QNAP TVS-463? QNAP TVS-463 is a centralized repository for data with shared access to files from different platforms. In this direction we have all of its key features. We begin by creating a personal "cloud" that allows access (via myQNAPcloud) to your data anywhere you have Internet access via Web browser or free application for tablets and smartphones.Are provided and various business applications such as VPN, RADIUS, FTP, WEB and print servers as well as server via IP video surveillance cameras. QNAP TVS-463 also has an optimized technology for data backup.
Application QNAP NetBak Replicator supports backup in real time, as well as predefined schedule in Microsoft Windows, including backup emails to Outlook. By connecting an external device to the USB port on the front of TVS-463 you can start backing up data from an external disk, or vice versa.
There are maintenance and Apple Time Machine, which allows and MAC OS users to easily backup your data to a NAS device. Also keep multiple applications and backup data from other manufacturers such as Acronis True Image and Symantec Backup Exec. Qsync software tool even makes QNAP TVS-463 a reliable center for data processing by adding a synchronization function. There are also various options for data recovery. Service RTRR (Real-Time Remote Replication) supports data backup on a schedule or in real time with otdalecheno Turbo NAS storage or FTP server and synchronize files from local folders with remote, which allows for greater efficiency in archiving. In addition, supported RSYNC backup data to remote servers on schedule.Data can be copied to storage "cloud" storage, such as Amazon S3 or ElephantDrive.
To protect data in open systems from QNAP has provided a number of security options such as encrypted access, IP blocking and more. System administrators can also control the access rights of users to different resources, thus preventing unauthorized access to important files. QNAP TVS-463 is validated military level encryption FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit, which is intended to protect sensitive business information from unauthorized access even if the discs or the entire system were stolen. Available in TurboNAS Service Station Virtualization, becoming QNAP TVS-463 product in a dual-purpose, capable of functioning as a network drive for data storage and server virtualization support multiple operating systems.Thanks to the simple and convenient interface virtual machines are managed very easily. NAS device offers SSD caching, which increases the number of input-output operations (IO / s) of units for storing the data, and it certainly reflects favorably on virtualization. Management QNAP TVS-463 is significantly simplified with QTS 4.2 interface. It allows you to quickly find the desired functions, to create single or group shortcuts, keep track of important system information in real time through the interface for monitoring and opening multiple windows applications for both tasks.
