It is designed to specialize in AI image recognition and smart surveillance applications, along with built-in dual 4K HDMI output, 2.5GbE as standard, and a PCIe Gen 3 slot for 10GbE expansion for its capable hardware. The AI NAS features advanced ARM Cortex-A76 cores at 2.2 GHz and Cortex-A55 cores at 1.8 GHz, offering the ideal balance of performance and power saving at an affordable price.
A QNAP and Hailo joint solution will be demonstrated as power-efficient, scalable, and affordable AI surveillance solutions in large-scale deployment. Instead of purchasing expensive AI cameras, users can easily operate AI-powered facial recognition and people counting applications by using QNAP surveillance servers with Hailo-8 M.2 AI acceleration modules for boosted AI recognition performance.
To meet the requirements of surveillance backup retention policies, QVR Recording Vault app provides a central backup solution for long-term retention, allowing for backing up video footage even with metadata or facial recognition information. Administrators can easily access the video backups through computers or mobile devices with QVR Pro Client for seamless browsing, playback, or file searching.
Multi-device, Multi-site, Multi-cloud Backup Solutions
Hybrid Backup Sync is QNAP’s renowned backup solution for facilitating 3-2-1 backup strategies. To overcome the challenge of managing hundreds of NAS backup jobs, QNAP introduces Hybrid Backup Center that centralizes management of large-scale, cross-site NAS backup jobs of Hybrid Backup Sync in a single platform - with an amazing topology widget to simplify a vast scope of backup management.
QNAP continues enhancing cloud services and here unveils its own brand cloud “myQNAPcloud One”, aiming to streamline users’ hybrid backup plans from on-prem QNAP NAS to QNAP’s cloud. myQNAPcloud One offers an array of solutions to protect various types of data and keep them available at all times, facilitating hybrid backup strategy for organizations and individuals. Besides allowing full protection during the processes of backing up, transferring, and storing data, myQNAPcloud One services can be integrated with QNAP’s Hybrid Backup Sync, Hybrid Backup Center, HybridMount, and more.
NDR Switches, Network Virtualization Premise Equipment, and System-level High Availability
As networks continues growing in both size and complexity, organizations are tackling challenges in managing not only network hardware but also cybersecurity. QNAP proposes the affordable ADRA network detection and response (NDR) solution that can be deployed on an access switch, allowing the broadest network-level security coverage for all connected end devices in LAN environment against targeted ransomware.
Meanwhile, QNAP also proposes the concept of transforming traditional IT rooms into a revolutionary, software-defined IT infrastructure. With QuCPE network virtualization premise equipment QuCPE-7030A, featuring up to 10 cores/20 threads and OCP 3.0, that utilizes VM/VNF/Container technology to replace dedicated network hardware, organizations can easily build a virtualized, resilient IT room and even remotely manage IT rooms at multiple locations without being on-site. QuCPE further supports system-level high-availability to achieve minimal downtime for service availability.
Petabyte-scale Storage Solutions
Exponential data growth requires reliable storage with scale-up flexibility. Visitors can expect to see QNAP’s comprehensive PB-scale storage solutions, constructed with robust ZFS-based QuTS hero NAS systems and new PCIe interface SATA JBOD storage enclosures (the TL-Rxx00PES-RP series including 12, 16, and 24-bay).
