Leading Enterprise-level NAS Operating System
QSM 3 (QSAN Storage Management3) is a NAS operation system for QSAN XCubeNAS series. The core of QSM is Linux kernel and in-house fine-tuning 128-bit ZFS (Petabyte File System) file system.QSM’s powerful storage features ensure persistent, reliable storage management, protection against data corruption, seamless capacity expansion, several data integrity mechanisms, pool and disk encryption protection, unlimited snapshots, and unlimited clones.
Powerful Hardware Platform
Combined with the latest hardware technology, the XCubeNAS is able to fulfill various application demands efficiently. Extensive network bandwidth is provided, enabling the XCubeNAS to thrive in complex network environments. Additional NVMe option slots are included as standard, making the XCubeNAS a perfect device for SMB all the way up to big data applications or high performance requirements.
Moreover, the innovative mechanical design makes the XCubeNAS a versatile hybrid storage device. Without affecting existing large form factor slots, the XCubeNAS positions several small form factor bays for SATA and PCIe SSD’s at the rear side of the system, this way we can ensure that both the demands for capacity and performance can be satisfied.
The Next Generation Thunderbolt™ 3
With next generation Thunderbolt™ 3 technology, you can connect Thunderbolt™ devices to an XN8000R model directly with a 40Gb/s data transmission rate. XN8000R Series with Thunderbolt™ 3 is capable of transferring high resolution video smoothly and handling relative workloads with ease: to copy a 4.7GB DVD video will on average take under a minute.
High Speed 10GbE Adapter Card
A 10GbE (10 Gigabit Ethernet) network is essential for businesses that demand high bandwidth for virtualization, and fast backup and restore for an ever-growing amount of data. The XN8000R are affordable and reliable storage solutions for deploying a 10GbE environment.
The XN8000R provides massive scale-up capability by connecting any of our expansion enclosures. It can support up to a whopping 210 disk drives or up to 2 PB of raw storage space when using 10TB HDD drives.
Virtualization Ready Storage
XN8000R Series are verified with VMware® Ready™, Citrix® Ready™, and Microsoft® Hyper-V™. No matter which virtualization environment you’ve adopted, the XN8000R Series are practical and efficient storage systems for you to deploy in any virtualization platform. QSAN’s XN8000R models can be used for primary storage repositories and as a backup to existing primary storage. As a backup storage device, the XN8000R Series supports a comprehensive list of 3rd-party virtual machine backup software to ensures that your VMs and data are never at risk of loss.
All-in-One Business Solution
Since having a dedicated machine for each specific task rapidly becomes an expensive and inefficient solution, XN8000R Series allows you to enable comprehensive applications and services on your NAS, whenever you need them. Everything from file sharing to data storage, even hosting a website, the XN8000R can do it all.
IP SAN / NAS Unified Storage
The XN8000R Series are a multi-role storage device that can play a major role in many different applications. In the simplest scenario, the XN8000R can be a file sharing server, a simple storage device for centralized office data sharing. Its high bandwidth network ports ensure that data is quickly read from and written to the NAS. Another scenario in which to use the XN8000R as a media editing platform.
The XN8000R has the performance and the stability for intensive media editing by a single user or by a group of users. A third example for the power of the XN8000R are as IP surveillance storage. In the surveillance world, recording every frame is of utmost importance. The XN8000R have the power and stability to record every frame sent to it without any problems.
Advanced Storage Technology
XN8000R Series tailor-made storage pool technology effectively caters to diverse storage demands on data integrity, scalability, high performance and availability. Comprehensive RAID levels are supported to ensure data integrity under every application scenario. Pool capacity could be expanded on the fly, rapidly responding to growing needs of for capacity. The design of the XN8000R Series allows for creating customized storage pools and auto categorization of data based on usage. “Hot” data will be moved to front line storage while “cold” data is stored on slower disks. All this is done automatically with the XN8000R.
Wide RAID Type Support and Instant RAID
XN8000R provides comprehensive RAID levels, 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, 60, Z3for various application scenarios. Each RAID type can be instantly deployed with no initialization or synchronization phase, delivering safe, protected and high-performance storage space without any delays.
When a drive fails in a RAID set, the XN8000R are capable of rebuilding the data blocks that have been used, and not the entire RAID set. This helps reduce the risk of data loss during the rebuilding process.
User Defined Pool
Thinking ahead to common usage situations, the XN8000R series provides three optimized solutions for pools to achieve high performance and availability for dedicated storage applications:
– Generic: Default type for generic file service or backup usage.
– Media: Optimize IOPS for small packets of sequential RW and throughput for large, random packets.
– Database: Data is synchronized between the memory cache and disks in real time for assurance of database Integrity.
By using auto-tiering, it helps increase the performance of your business application without crippling your budget. The XCubeNAS features auto-tiering technology which makes the system continuously analyzes the accessing frequency of your data for better data transmission. The most frequently used data will move to higher speed tier, on the other hand, the less commonly used data will move to capacity tier. Demanding workloads of your business applications could be dramatically reduced, and the performance increased without massive investment in expensive all flash storage devices – this is all done by the XCubeNAS’s intelligent auto-tiering technology.
Deep Into SSD Caching
SSD cache is a large secondary cache that boosts data access speed by positioning SSD drives between primary DRAM memory cache and hard disks.
“Take whatever you need.” That’s the philosophy of thin provisioning. Thin provisioning lets various services and applications use the same storage space without limiting how much of the quota can be used by each. With thin provisioning, space resources are dynamically distributed to the most demanding, responding to your business applications with higher flexibility and promising potentials.
The data deduplication feature of the XN8000R is an in- line, block-level function that checks the block similarity of data as it enters the system When duplicated blocks are found, they are not written to disk, therefore saving space.
Centralized Data Storage & File Sharing
The XN8000R Series provides lightning fast and secure ways to share files with anyone, anywhere. You can explore, organize, and move files between your computer and the XN8000R in deployment, all the while, being able to customize access rights to enhance security. A seamless integrated system allows for file sharing across different computing environments, including Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS.
Universal & Efficient Data Backup
The XN8000R Series effectively addresses the above challenges by providing comprehensive and effective backup solutions that assist you to design a complete and efficient backup solution to minimize the risk of data loss. Various storage devices, remote servers, public clouds even other XCubeNAS can be seamlessly integrated into your XN8000R, achieving an all-encompassing backup solution allowing data to be free, safely and efficiently preserved.
– Client side backup
– Remote backup
– Cloud backup
– Local backup.
Security & Data Protection
The growing tide of data breaches, leaks, and malicious software means your data security systems and procedures are vital. Our QSM for XN8000R was built on a security-first ideology, it can offer you full protection of the data within your XN8000R. Tools are provided to prevent protect the system from hacking, and interception of data, theft, and accidental deletion.
Furthermore, using the inbuilt Anti-Virus, you can add tasks, scanning the entire NAS or selected folder with specific schedule.
