QNAP Announces New Version of QBack Backup Application Providing Easy, Reliable, and Secure Backup for Turbo NAS Users

Taipei, Taiwan, September 14, 2011 – QNAP® Systems, Inc. today announced a new version of QBack, the popular NAS backup application provided free to QNAP Turbo NAS customers. New Version 2.1 of QBack features an intuitive wizard interface, VSS support, external drive encryption, and backups to multiple destinations.

The newly released QBack V2.1 allows Windows® users to easily back up local data to the Turbo NAS with just a few clicks in the new user-friendly wizard interface. It supports advanced volume shadow copy service (VSS) technology which ensures backup consistency by performing a snapshot before the backup. With VSS technology, users can also back up opened files without closing the applications that are accessing the files. The new QBack offers a high level of data protection by allowing users to assign a preferred size on the external drive as backup target and encrypt it using strong 256-bit AES encryption. Moreover, the backup to multiple destinations feature gives users more options to back up or restore data to or from different destinations on local and external disks, including remote destinations.

“QNAP has introduced exciting new features for our Turbo NAS users with new QBack V2.1,” said Jérôme Jaussaud, product manager of QNAP systems, Inc., “QNAP has a long history of continuously developing reliable backup solutions to enhance our users experience and provide worry-free data protection.”
