What is Virtualization Station
Easy Installation in App Center
Begin running Virtualization Station by installing it in the QNAP App Center with one simple click. QNAP's App Center provides a wide array of apps, expanding your NAS capability.
Various Operating Systems
Virtualization Station supports a variety of modern operating systems, from Microsoft Windows XP to Windows Server edition, as well as popular UNIX-like systems such as Ubuntu, Red Hat, CentOS, FreeBSD and Sun Solaris.
A built-in access control list (ACL) that allows you to easily manage access to specific virtual machines. You can assign either control or view-only permission of each VM to any specific user.
Central VM Management
With Virutualization Station, centrally monitor and manage all virtual machines deployed, and allocate resources such as: RAM, CPU, and storage capacity.
Import & Export VM
You can easily import or export virtual machines with just a few clicks. Supported file types including *.ova, *.vmx, *.ovf and *.qvm formats.
Backup & Restore VM
Backup and restore in Virtualization Station allows for fast disaster recovery of each virtual machine. VM Snapshot also rolls back your VM to prevent ransomware attacks and other emergencies.
Access VM from Anywhere
Now it's easier than ever to access your virtual machine remotely* with Virtualization Station 3. A HTML5-compatible web browser such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari is all you need. In addition, VNC connection is also available for each virtual machine.
*Port forwarding on your router is required for remote access. For web browser access, port 8088 (HTTP) or 8089 (HTTPS) is required. For VNC access, please find the assigned VNC port of each VM in Virtualization Station.
Virtual Switch with Various Networking Modes
Attaching an Ethernet interface* to a Virtual Switch creates a bridged network. The NAS and the Virtual Switch can share the same Ethernet interface and have high-speed data transfer via internal routing.
*Port-trunking is available in these modes: Active Backup, IEEE 802.3ad, Balance-tlb.
Specify an Ethernet interface for a Virtual Switch to enable dedicated routing between virtual switches and external networks.
Not attaching any Ethernet interface to a Virtual Switch creates an isolated network. Manual IP setting is required for each VM to enable communication among different VMs that are connected to the same Virtual Switch.
USB and GPU Pass-through
Virtualzation Station supports virtual pass-through, allowing you to connect a wide variety of external USB* peripherals directly to one or multiple virtual machines. In addition, it also supports GPU pass-thorugh that allows you to assign a PCIe external graphic card** directly to a virtual machine via GPU Pass-through to achieve near native capability of a GPU on a virtual machine with full support for OpenGL and DirectX.
*QNAP cannot guarantee universal USB support. USB 3.o is only available for Windows 8 and above.
**Supports AMD RadeonTM R7 and RX series. The applicable models may vary depends on the actual specification.
QvPC: Turns your NAS into a PC
Powered by QNAP's HD Station, a local display technology that is available on every HDMI-ready QNAP NAS, you are now able to use the NAS as a personal computer.
Simply install the QVM app in HD Station, and then connect a HDMI monitor, a USB keyboard and a mouse to your NAS. VMs can be displayed in HD Station with full control that works just like a PC workstation.
