High-speed 10GbE NAS
Introducing Thunderbolt™ 3 NAS
Cantina Creative founders Sean Cushing and Stephen Lawes explain why they chose QNAP for their visual effects and design studio storage.
Hey Guy Media
Hey Guy Media uses QNAP NAS for its Thunderbolt™ capability, built in 10-GbE and RAID configurations for redundancy. QNAP NAS helps them meet weeks worth of tight deadlines, with fast turn arounds and constant abuse.
Network Attached Storage, a central storage system consisting of multiple hard drives, continuously connected to the network. The Gb network also provides decent transfer speed, and unlike a DAS, gives you access across different platforms.
QNAP Turbo NAS supports various 10 GbE cards based on models. Please visit the compatability list.
Yes, all management and administration pages are HTML5 web-based, it is designed for any kind of platform, including Mac, PC, iOS, and Android.
Unlike Final Cut Pro 7 Projects, Final Cut Pro X libraries cannot be opened or saved to an AFP or SMB share point. It needs to be on a local storage or on a SAN. Using a SAN is more complex and requires a bigger budget, which can be out of reach for postproduction companies with only a few edit suites. Another solution is to use NFS for FCPX project. The shared media can be mounted on NFS or SMB, and the library can be only stored on the mount via NFS. However, the library mount has to be configured and recognized as a local drive.
You can easily replace the smaller hard drive with a larger drive one by one after each one rebuilds online. Also, you can also purchase expansion units (which are more economical) and expand drives as you go. Please refer to:

QNAP Expansion Units
We always recommend users to purchase hard drives that are dedicated for NAS-use, such as the WD Red drives, Seagate NAS drives, but drives that are higher performance than the NAS drives are also suitable. We do not recommend desktop drives or surveillance drives due to their different spin rates, which might corrupt the RAID configuration of the NAS. Please check the compatibility list here before purchasing your drives.
