QNAP Demonstrates Ultra Home Multimedia Applications for the Turbo NAS, Unveils Powerful NAS Solutions with VMware VAAI, and More at CeBIT 2013

Taipei, Taiwan, March 5, 2013 – At the CeBIT 2013 opening today, QNAP® Systems, Inc. presented the multimedia applications for home users, unveiled its high performance business-class Turbo NAS solutions with VMware® VAAI certification for virtualization applications, and displayed the new VioStor NVR firmware v4.0.0. Visitors could experience the full-spectrum of Turbo NAS series and VioStor NVR series at CeBIT 2013.

Ultra home multimedia applications

QNAP displayed a comprehensive multimedia experience with its Turbo NAS featuring various home applications. The HD Station enables users to obtain Full HD experience with big-screen TV via HDMI and easily enjoy the vast video, music and photo collections stored in the Turbo NAS, surf the web, and even control the entire experience from mobile phones or tablets. The TV Station allows online TV watching, recording, and playback with DVB-T USB TV tuner. Mobile apps including Qfile and Qmanager are available for users to easily upload, share, and manage files remotely with the mobile devices. The new Qfile HD app is particularly designed for iPad users with enhanced user interface. Users can enjoy a smart digital life and entertainment with the feature-rich Turbo NAS.

10GbE ready, 400 TB NAS solution and virtualization-aware storage

QNAP presented a powerful 400 TB NAS Solution for virtualization combining its high-end Turbo NAS TS-x79U series with new additions of REXP-1200U-RP and REXP-1600U-RP. It provides a flexible solution for IT administrators to expand the total capacity of the Turbo NAS up to 400TB. Equipped with many other powerful features including 10GbE ready, SSD cache, VMware VAAI and vSphere Client plug-in, Microsoft SCVMM/ODX, and thin-provisioned volume, the Turbo NAS not only effectively optimizes efficiency and reliability in virtualization applications, but also serves as a high performance NAS for data backup.

“The great storage expansion solution will relieve IT administrators from having to invest big at initial setup,” said David Tsao, product manager of QNAP. “The solution can largely reduce inflexibility in IT budget allocation for businesses that do not see rapid growth of storage demand in the near future, but in some point of time afterward.”

QNAP has been continuously improving user experience in virtualization. The QNAP virtualization-aware solution offers optimal performance for businesses to deploy a virtualization environment.

VioStor NVR firmware v4.0.0

The new VioStor NVR firmware 4.0.0, revamped with a completely new user interface, drag-and-drop control panel, cross-browser support, real-time system alert and much more, was presented for users to enjoy smooth experience with the management of VioStor NVR.

The VioStor NVR supports up to 64-channel display mode for live monitoring and 16-channel display mode for playback, provides practical local display, real-time system alert and E-map function, and offers more management convenience when users experience the powerful surveillance system.

Digital Signage Player

The QNAP digital signage player includes its own embedded software allowing easy content design and control for content placement. The software allows the freedom to schedule message delivery and the flexibility to manage multiple signage players over the network. The latest digital signage series iS-1500, iS-1600 and iS-1620 are available in the exhibition for users to experience.
