QNAP Releases One Case Study Showing How Turbo NAS Facilitates File Sharing and Management in Education

Taipei, Taiwan, February 4, 2013 – QNAP® Systems, Inc. today released one case study, demonstrating how QNAP Turbo NAS helps an Austrian education institution increase efficiency in file sharing and management among four workgroups in different cities in Austria."By releasing the case study, we hope to provide those organizations planning on adopting a NAS solution to improve work efficiency with a clear idea about how it can really help," said Edward Lin, director of marketing of QNAP.

The Student Union (called ÖH) of FH Oberösterreich (University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria) is an inter-campus organization providing counseling services for nearly 5,000 students. To create wonderful campus magazines regularly, the Chairman of ÖH had to organize teamwork with four workgroups in different cities in Upper Austria. To ensure all team members access the files in a timely manner and share digital assets without the hassle, he deployed one unit of TS-659 Pro II to store and share a large number of content-rich files. The TS-659 Pro II has successfully served as an efficient file sharing system among teams, and also built up a secure private cloud to store and share important data.

“When it comes to file sharing, just upload the files to Turbo NAS via MyCloudNAS service, and then generate a download link for quick file sharing. No more geographical restriction and inconvenience in sharing large size file,” said Daniel Zeilbauer, Chairman of ÖH. “The TS-659 Pro II has taken us to the new level in terms of file management,” concluded Zeilbauer.

The TS-659 Pro II is a high performance NAS for SMB, satisfying various business needs such as storage, file sharing, backup, and virtualization applications, and more. Supporting 4TB hard drives, the TS-659 Pro II accommodates up to 24TB large storage capacity. Embedded powerful Intel® Atom dual core processor, it delivers blasting fast data transfer speed. It features cross-platform file sharing that enables smooth file sharing among users using Windows®, Mac®, Linux and UNIX systems, and supports particle business applications such as Windows ACL/LDAP, Windows AD, Advanced folder permission, RTRR, AES 256-bit volume-based data encryption, IP blocking, FTP Server, Printer Server, and so on.

MyCloudNAS service enables users to access the Turbo NAS via Internet from anywhere. Moreover, the TS-659 Pro II is an efficient storage center with advanced iSCSI services, being VMware® Ready, Citrix® Ready and Microsoft Hyper-V compatible as an ideal shared storage solution for virtualized and clustered environments.
