Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Home filesharing, torrents, Ubiquity controller, Transcoding, Smart HOME, VM farm, Docker farm and much more... perfect to all kind of intusiast to realize plenty of tasks. It realy not just a toy or gadget that will taking place, it really doing good its job. Depends of model that you will prefer and you needs it can be used for home or even business ready equipment for 24/7 (depending of model). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Intuitive UI, customizing, performance and alternative repos, continues OS updating (not only bugfixing, but new features comes as also). Integated monitoring shows all kind of metrics from hardware and integrated syslog, shows all kind of logs - system, security and application.

Qnap newest models using the latest hardware like CPU (low power), HDD/SSD, external network adapters 10Gbe for highend speed and compatibility with VMware vSphere virtualization via iSCSI/NFS.

Intergraded RAID controller manager Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

You must update it not asap as you will get update notification (it it not urgent security patch), because this update can do some bad things, like some installed packages stops working because of uncompatibility, read carefully all changelogs before.

Some custom package troubleshooting a little be annoing task or can be just like a mission impossible, especially for non high level unix/linux man. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Get sertified NAS products for Veeam, Integrade with all kind of Cloud solution as Amazon AWS and Google cloud Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

Online transcoding for plenty of video to custom ormats, Ubiquity contoller for Home Uni Wifi, Home cinema for offline video collections, FTP and WEB servers, VPN server, L2 tunnels and much more like Virtualization. Yea you can do it if you will spend more money for more powerful model and upgrade RAM. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

We have installed QNAP NAS devices many times as either a local backup device for SolarWinds or Altaro, or an expanded data store. Normally these are in the 10-20 Gig range running LACP failover. Time to going live has always been as key as system performance. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As apposed to some other Vendors, we've been able to source our preferred disks for the RAID which has saved significant costs and every firmware upgrade has gone through without a hitch. Security is tight with ACL's and we've never had a device compromised. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only downside was it took more time to convince clients that QNAP was the way as they always had bigger names in mind. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Years ago I did not even know what/who a QNAP was. When we got into the technical details, it was clear we had found a diamond in the rough. Nowadays we still don't recommend other devices as our QNAP's have been 100% reliable and 100% secure. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

We've had to save costs, increase storage density whilst decreasing power consumption and also create portability where a full rack device was just too cumbersome Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
