The first single-board IoT mini server/gateway for developers
The QBoat Sunny is the first single-board IoT mini server by QNAP. Measuring only 12cm x 12cm (without heatsink), the development board-like design can be effortlessly installed for almost any type of IoT application, while providing several interfaces for connecting to development boards and devices. Rule engine criteria and subsequent actions can be processed locally for you to create a small-scale/private IoT application with minimal costs. The QBoat Sunny can also reduce bandwidth and cloud processing costs of large scale/public IoT solutions by using it as a fog computing server/gateway to filter and relay data to public clouds.
QTS Lite operating system carries all IoT applications
QTS Lite is a streamlined and thin version of QNAP's award-winning QTS operating system. QTS Lite provides Container Station to run containerized applications; myQNAPcloud for remote connectivity; Hybrid Backup Sync for backup and synchronization needs; and Network & Virtual Switch for managing network connections and linking containers, networks and the QBoat Sunny. QTS Lite also features App Center for adding more features and functionality.
Simplified development with QIoT Suite Lite
QIoT Suite Lite integrates multiple easy-to-use and useful applications for you to quickly build an ideal IoT environment. Versatile protocols (such as MQTT(S), HTTP(S) and CoAP) and dashboards are available for you to integrate development boards and sensors to build a complete IoT ecosystem. If you're new to the immerse IoT domain, the QIoT Suite Lite will be your excellent choice.
