Accelerate performance, consolidate space, and has two more storage bays (around 8% more capacity) than the popular 2U 24-bay products available on the market. This can further lower the cost per TB, minimize IT rack space, and generate smaller and greener footprint.
High Availability with No Single Point of Failure
 
The XS3200 series is a proven high availability SAN storage system. All of the critical components in the XS3200 series are hot pluggable and designed with full redundancy. Besides, dual-active controller design and automatic failover/failback mechanism, cache mirroring through NTB (Non-Transparent Bridge) bus to achieve Active-Active HA functionality, these designs allow the XS3200 series to withstand multiple component failures and achieve 99.999% availability.

Latest 12Gb SAS 3.0 Controller 
12Gb SAS 3.0 is the latest and fastest drive interface available. It doubles the data transfer rate of SAS 2.0 (6Gb), while remaining backward compatible with 6Gb SAS 2.0 drives.The benefit is that you have the flexibility to purchase less expensive 6Gb SAS for initial installation or leverage investment of your existing 6Gb SAS drives and have a peace of mind knowing you can migrate to 12Gb SAS 3.0 by purchasing only new drives.
Built-in 10GbE iSCSI
 
The base unit SAN controller comes with two onboard 10GBASE-T iSCSI port per controller. The Dual-Active controller XS3200 SAN system has four 10GBASE-T iSCSI ports reaching 40Gb/s bandwidth when you aggregate all ports together. This base unit SAN system comes ready to support a variety of applications including data sharing, backup, video editing, and native virtualization support for VMware, Citrix, and Hyper-V.

Multipath Storage Access 
MPIO (Multi Path Input Output) is a fault-tolerance and performance enhancement technique which allows the use of more than one path to the volume from the same host server. MPIO is supported in both iSCSI and Fibre Channel protocols.

SANOS 4.0 SAN Operation System 
SANOS 4.0 is QSAN’s proprietary SAN storage operating system. SANOS 4.0 is equipped with a refreshingly simple to use web GUI and easily deployable into any infrastructure. Based on the Linux kernel, SANOS delivers comprehensive storage functionality including advanced storage management, complete RAID level protection, fast RAID rebuild, storage pool migration, thin provisioning, SSD cache, auto-tiering, snapshot, data backup & disaster recovery, virtualization support, performance monitoring, and scale-up support and more.

Advanced RAID Levels Technology 
The most efficient and economical data protection method for enterprise and SMBs remains to be RAID technology. Using RAID has two advantages – high availability and better performance. SANOS supports complete RAID levels including RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 3, 5, 6, 10, 30, 50, 60, and N-way mirror. You can choose the appropriate RAID level to best suit the application requirements.

Enterprise Storage Features 
QSAN’s in-house developed RAID stack technology has a proven track record of being deployed in enterprise environments for over ten years and is highly trusted by both SMB and enterprise customers globally. The advanced LVM (Logical Volume Manager) builds a solid foundation of disk virtualization to provide complete RAID level protection, enhanced performance, and many other enterprise-level storage features built on top.

Scale-up Solution 
The XS3200 SAN provides a massive scale-up capability by connecting either our XD5300 expansion enclosures. It can support up to whopping 286 disk drives or up to 2.6PB of raw storage space when using 10TB NL-SAS drives.

High Density, High Flexibilty, and High Scalability 
The expansion XD5300 series is the best scale up solution for XCubeSAN XS3200 customers. It is available in 4U LFF 24-bay (XD5324D), 3U 16-bay (XD5316D), 2U 12-bay (XD5312D), and the world’s first 2U SFF 26-bay (XD5326D). These can support up to ten expansion enclosures.

In the event of power loss, the I/O cache data stored in volatile memory will be lost, this can cause data inconsistencies especially in database applications. The XS3200 series can provide an optional Cache-to-Flash memory protection function that will safely transfer the memory cache data to a non-volatile flash device for permanent preservation. The optional Cache-to-Flash module comes with an M.2 flash module and either a BBM (Battery Backup Module) or an SCM (Super Capacitor Module).

Data Backup & Disaster Recovery 
With proven 99.999% high availability and reliability the dual-active controller storage system with multipath environment can sustain multiple failures and keep data alive. This is important to the mission critical applications. The well-plan for high availability also includes data backup insdide the storage system and between your centralized datacenter as well as remote and branch offices. Our QClone (Local Volume Clone) and  QRreplica (Remote Replication) are the solutions which we provide for.
 QClone is used to make a duplicate copy of a volume in the same storage pool as well as in a separate storage pool within the same enclosure. QRreplica lets you asynchronously replicate data volumes, reservation snapshots between primary and remote locations. These features enable centralized backup and disaster recovery on a per-volume basis and leverage application integrated snapshots for faster recovery.

Highly Reliable
QSAN XS3200 series are capable of supporting flexible expansion and integrating to both analog and digital IP surveillance without compromising any performance and reliability. OSAN's new innovative storage solution supports more than 1000 cameras per system from multiple locations. Enormous amounts of recordings are streamed to NVRs for analytics and event handling. Business may project flexibly depending on requirements and change it over time.

Video Editing 
The XS3200 series is an ideal storage solution for pre-production and post-production environments. Superior performance and high throughput make the XS3200 series work seamlessly with popular video editing applications such as Adobe Creative Suite, AVID Media Composer, Apple Final Cut Pro…etc.

Green Technology 
At QSAN we pride ourselves on our commitment to build highly efficient and low carbon footprint devices. To safeguard the earth and our environment, the XS3200 product range uses various green technologies for energy savings and minimization of your carbon footprint.

Is there a difference between network drive, backup drive, network hard drive and nas drive?

There is no physical difference between a network drive, backup drive, network hard drive and NAS drive, the MAIN difference is about the use of the equipment. So:

A Network Drive is a area on storage that is useable to anyone on the network and will be visible to the device you are using if you have the correct login/password.

A Backup Drive is a storage device is a area of NAS or DAS storage that is used JUST for backups and only for writing, not reading - it backs up one or multiple devices on a regular basis.


A Network Hard Drive is the same as a network drive, but instead of a portion of online storage that is network/internet accessible, it is an entire disk drive. Much larger and often includes a RAID drive acting as a fall-back.

A NAS Drive can do all of the above. It can be set up to be a backup drive for all your devices, it can make either a portion or ALL of the storage available over the internet or network, it can do all of these at the same time and can give you much, much more access options thanks to NAS software from the likes of QNAP, Synology, WD, Asustor, Buffalo and Drobo.

What is a server at home?

A server at home is a network attached storage device (NAS) that is like a computer, but with the emphasis on storage space. They can be purchased for as little as £100 and mean all your data can be accessed, used and backed up to and from overt the internet or your home network (WiFi etc). Bigger and more expensive home servers can do more, such as virtual computers, surveillance recording and multimedia access.

16/11/2017 | Popular Question | GB Flag |
What is meant by diskless NAS?

A Diskless NAS means that it a network storage device that is sold without any Hard Drives inside. Many NAS Brands like WD and Buffalo will only sell their NAS server devices with Drives already installed - this can often increase the price significantly, as well as limit the Hard Drives you want to install. A diskless NAS is a device that you can choose which drives, how many and the capacity you want and install them yourself, for a more bespoke NAS storage device. Installing the Hard Drives is very easy and you can often save a lot of time and improve your long term storage by choosing a diskless NAS and selecting the drives yourself.

What is a NAS external hard drive?

A NAS external Hard Drive is an external storage device that, unlike USB 3.0 and eSATA external Hard Drives, is accessed used the internet or your home network. So that means you can access the contents (DATA) of the NAS on your iPhone, iPad, Smart TV, PS4, XBOX One, Sonos Sound System, Bose system, Laptop, Smartphone and pretty much any DLNA enabled device without having to connect to it with a cable. Meaning you do not need to carry duplicates of all your data on all your devices, but can have one central NAS storage devices that all the other devices can access.

16/11/2017 | Popular Question | GB Flag |
How do I connect to my NAS remotely?

You can connect to your NAS server remotely with the mobile applications that are free with your NAS Brand manufacturer for iOS and Android. Alternatively you can use a number of desktop applications from the big brands QNAP and Synology NAS to access your device remotely. Lastly you can create a network and internet accessible drive with iSCSI and then setup software (Virtual Machine, backup, Surveillance and more) on your Mac or Windows machine to read and write to the NAS remotely.

16/11/2017 | Popular Question | GB Flag |
What is a NAS drive used for?

A NAS drive can be used for the following:

Apple Time Machine Backups
Synchronized Backups of Windows and Android devices
A Plex Media Server
DLNA Media Server
Download Server
Printer Server
Virtual Machine Deployment
Email Server
CRM and/or CMS System
A CCTV IP Camera Enabled Surveillance station for your home or office
File Server
and more...

What are the different types of RAID?

The most popular and recommended RAID levels for a 2-Bay NAS and 4-Bay NAS from Synology and QNAP are:

RAID 0 - Meaning all drive storage is pooled together into 1 big drive - MOST UNSAFE
RAID 1 - Drives are duplicated so you lose half the available storage, but have a complete, up to the second copy of your data
RAID 5 - You lose 1 drive of data storage space, but data is spread across all the available drives and a small piece of information called PARITY is created each wave/stripe that makes a blueprint of all the data
RAID 6 - Same as above, but it removes two drives worth of space and protects you against the loss of two Hard Drives

16/11/2017 | Popular Question | GB Flag |
What is a RAID hard drive?

A RAID Hard drive is a Hard Disk Drive that is designed to be used in a RAID configuration - in simple terms it is a drive that can be installed with multiple other drives of the same type (such as WD Red RAID Drives, WD Purples Surveillance RAID Drives and Seagate Ironwolf NAS RAID Drives). These are designed to be on for long periods of time and for handling data that is shared and/or duplicated across multiple drives at once - constructed with better vibration, head and access controls). Most other drives are designed to work on their own.

What is raid on a NAS?

RAID on a NAS is a means to protect yourself from losing your data due to hard drive failure. Hard Drives are the 2nd most vulnerable area of a NAS device and if a drive fails and you do not have a copy of the data elsewhere, you will most likely lose it all. RAID gives you a safety net (called REDUNDANCY) which means you can afford to lose 1, 2 or even 3 hard drives with the right configuration. The most common options are:

RAID 0 - Meaning all drive storage is pooled together into 1 big drive - MOST UNSAFE
RAID 1 - Drives are duplicated so you lose half the available storage, but have a complete, up to the second copy of your data
RAID 5 - You lose 1 drive of data storage space, but data is spread across all the available drives and a small piece of information called PARITY is created each wave/stripe that makes a blueprint of all the data
RAID 6 - Same as above, but it removes two drives worth of space and protects you against the loss of two Hard Drives

What is a personal cloud storage device?

A personal Cloud storage device is a piece of Hardware, Like a NAS, that gives you the access, freedom, speed and utility of popular 3rd party cloud providers such as Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, Amazon S3 and more. However unlike those providers that hold your data on a server farm hundreds or thousands of miles away, where you it can be broken into, a Personal Cloud (NAS) lives in your home/office and can be protected with both bespoke AES-256bit encryption, individual login credentials and if the worst case scenario, can be simply unplugged from the network/internet.


It is also considerably cheaper in the long term.


 

16/11/2017 | Popular Question | GB Flag |
How do you connect to a NAS?

You can connect to a device in several ways:


- You can connect to a NAS via your home network as long as it is connected to the same router/switch that your other devices are connected to, via cable or over Wi-Fi (the devices, not the NAS)


- You can connect over the internet using the NAS manufacturer’s respective software on desktop or mobile platforms for Mac, Windows and Android devices


- You can also access the data as a network drive (where the location of the drive with be an IP - 192.168. etc.) and then the drive can be read and written to as needed


Thank you

How does a NAS device work?

Excellent Question. A NAS devices like a computer that is dedicated to storing data that is made accessible across all your internet enabled devices. It connects to your home network (in simple terms, the internet connected network in your home or office) and makes the data that is store on it accessible. You can also access the data from outside the phone via WiFi at hotspots and other buildings, or via your mobile 3G or 4G internet connection.

16/11/2017 | Popular Question | GB Flag |
Do you really need a NAS?

If you have data spread across multiple devices without a single backup location, then YES, you really do need a NAS drive. As it will make backing up with multiple devices easier, more automated and reliable.


If you are a business with large amounts of data that needs to be accessible quickly, across multiple machines or outside your office environment for off-site staff or clients, then YES you needs a NAS.


If you want your internet accessible data to be 100% inaccessible when needed (for security) and are considering a Cloud provider or a NAS, BUY A NAS!!! It is cheaper in the long run and can have individual and bespoke security measures.
