QNAP NAS Computex 2018 – What you will see there

What have QNAP NAS got in store for us in 2018 at Computex

If you have found this article, then chances are that you are well aware of what Computex is. However if by some staggering chance you do not, the Computex event in Taiwan is one of the biggest shows of technology from the biggest brands of the year. Although we at NASCompares try to limit ourselves to NAS, DAS, Thunderbolt and all things data storage, it is safe to say that there was SO much there outside of our genre that we want to discuss. We will be covering many of these details in other articles, but today we want to give focus to QNAP NAS and their big media event. This is a separate event to the Computex Show in a nearby Taipei International Convention Centre.

Where and When is QNAP showing their new tech?

Taipei, Taiwan, June 5, 2018 – At COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2018, QNAP® Systems, Inc. opened its technology suite at the Taipei International Convention Center (TICC), Meeting Room 201E, to bring visitors a profound, in-depth experience. Together with new NAS models and solutions, NAS-based machine learning and AI applications in healthcare are being demonstrated to display QNAP’s commitment to AI development. There is also a sneak-preview of the exciting advancements for the upcoming QTS 4.3.5 NAS operating system.

QNAP’s AI solution for the medical industry and remote healthcare

QNAP offers both software and hardware strengths to comprehensively fulfill AI computing and storage, and exhibits solid results in ophthalmology. A powerful QNAP NAS running the “QuAI” package demonstrates the absolute power to perform as an AI computing center with machine learning capabilities, trained to identify specific eye diseases. It not only improves medical diagnosis, but also creates possibilities to aid organizations that lack medical resources. All the DICOM images can be backed up to another NAS which operates the Orthanc as a picture archiving and communication system (PACS), which is beneficial to disease management as well as realizing remote healthcare.

QVR Pro video surveillance solution with intelligent event management

The QVR Pro surveillance solution runs alongside the NAS OS as an independent operating environment. Administrators can allocate dedicated storage space to QVR Pro and the performance will not be impacted by other NAS applications. Optimized for surveillance management, QVR Pro delivers enhanced usability and the incorporation of NAS functionalities such as cross-platform client monitoring and management, CMS concepts, failover capabilities, and expandable storage. More powerful features include comprehensive camera management and support, smarter event management, and Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) for face recognition.

Maximized NAS performance with GPU-driven computing and iSER acceleration

The upcoming TS-x77XU NAS series adds rack-mountable models to the QNAP’s range of AMD Ryzen™-based NAS. The TS-x77XU features great support for graphics cards for empowering AI machine-learning tasks with higher performance. Graphics cards can also be passed through to virtual machines to provide them with higher performance potential. In aspects of virtualization applications, the support of iSCSI Extensions for RDMA (iSER) boosts the data transfer performance of the TS-x77XU NAS as VMware® ESXi storage and reduces the CPU load of the ESXi server. iSER can significantly increase performance, providing an essential tool to optimize demanding virtualization applications.

Sneak-preview of QTS 4.3.5: A revolution in networking and storage

Alongside QNAP’s expanding lineup of 10GbE-capable NAS systems, 10GbE switches, and wireless adapters, the upcoming QTS 4.3.5 QNAP enhances the Network and Virtual Switch app to visualize physical/virtual connections with a network topology map that significantly eases the challenging network management. QNAP’s proprietary QBelt VPN protocol is being developed to help encrypt traffic when accessing sensitive data and to decrease the chance of being detected. Advances in storage efficiency go parallel to high-speed networking in response to prevailing 10GbE requirements. From SSD over-provisioning that improves write performance to fully utilize the 10GbE potential to flexible snapshot configurations, QNAP NAS is truly an all-round storage/computing solution.
