Work smarter not harder
My organization deployed several QNAP NAS for file storage, backup, sharing, and virtualization applications. It’s vital we keep track of all the system statuses in real time, manage all the updates and troubleshoot efficiently. We were struggling to keep up with the constant demands. With so many NAS, I was wasting a huge amount of time logging into each NAS individually to complete the tasks required. Q’center drastically simplified all of the administrative tasks into a single easy-to-use and customizable management platform.
Deploy multiple Q’center host servers
The updated Q’center supports multiple host QNAP NAS to mutually manage several client NAS, instead of only allowing one host server to centrally control the client NAS. This allows individual departments or particular units to review their own storage space status and job logs. Q’center fulfills central management needs and segment control targets at the same time, so you can manage and access NAS more efficiently.
Review HDD S.M.A.R.T. values smartly
Q’center provides 6 key S.M.A.R.T. ID parameters, including reallocated sectors count, power on hours, reported uncorrectable errors, command timeout, current pending sector count, and uncorrectable sector count. You can look over detailed system reports to discover if any hard drives are malfunctioning in order to replace them in time to prevent system crashes. You can also refer to S.M.A.R.T. ID values to replace hard drives in advance to avoid job or schedule delays.
Monitor system status with Q’center
Q’center actively monitors the status of all managed NAS. Information such as system temperatures and fan speeds allows you to reduce system failure risks by using control room conditions. You can also power on/off multiple NAS at once with preset power options to enhance the accessibility and efficiency of your NAS systems.
Manage apps and shared folders with Q’center
With Q’center, you can remotely install apps or create shared folders on multiple client NAS. Q'center allows you to create universal and unified NAS settings for efficient management of multiple NAS, saving you time and effort.
