Testing the top-end enterprise-class NAS from QNAP, we ask two questions: what acceleration will we get using the technology of data distribution over layers (Tiering) for each invested dollar, and whether we can use the built-in hypervisor in this storage system, set up a full-fledged remote desktop, with 3D graphics for working in 3D Studio Max and Sketchup.
For cases where you need to build an entire network of IP cameras, Synology offers Surveillance CMS technology, which allows you to manage all your NVRs based on Synology NAS from a single window, dynamically allocate licenses to connected cameras, as well as set up backup video surveillance servers in case of hardware failure and move IP cameras between them.
This SAN storage system has many features that make it worth paying attention to. First of all, this is the RAID 2.0+ technology, thanks to which in our testing, RAID 5 survived a fall of 6 drives!
