Qsirch – A smarter, faster way to search
Quickly and easily find documents, photos, videos, and music with Qsirch, QNAP’s new built-in NAS search application lets you find what you need by real-time, natural search. Simply type in as much as you know about what you are trying to find, including bits of the file name or even words/phrases in the document, and Qsirch will display a list of matches, complete with thumbnails, as you type. Qsirch even remembers your search history so you can quickly navigate to files you’ve previously searched for. Qsirch is a huge productivity boost – it greatly reduces the amount of time spent looking for files on the NAS so you can focus on other tasks.
Note: 2GB RAM (4GB or more RAM is recommended for optimum performance) and QTS 4.1 or newer firmware is required.
Internal cache port for IO acceleration
The TS-EC2480U R2 supports two on-board mSATA internal cache ports, and up to 4 SSDs can be used for caching. By installing mSATA flash modules (optional purchase), the IOPS performance of storage volumes can remarkably boost. It is perfect for improving overall workflow of random IOPS demanding applications such as database and virtualization. The internal cache port design reserves the space of hard drive tray for more storage capacity.
*Note: Instead of installing the mSATA in the internal cache port, SSDs are supported to be installed in the hard drive tray. Visit SSD cache
Well-rounded backup solutions to secure data
The TS-EC2480U R2 offers well-rounded backup solutions as a reliable backup center. QNAP NetBak Replicator supports scheduled and real-time data backup on Windows OS. Mac Time Machine is also supported to provide Mac OS X users with an effortless solution to back up data to the TS-EC2480U R2.
Disaster recovery solutions brings peace of mind
The TS-EC2480U R2 offers various data recovery options. RTRR (Real-Time Remote Replication) supports real time or scheduled data backup to a remote Turbo NAS or FTP server and synchronizes files to a remote folder from a local folder with better backup efficiency and reduced backup time. The TS-EC2480U R2 also supports rsync protocol to back up data to another remote server on scheduling basis. Besides, data can be backed up to cloud storage, such as Amazon® S3, Amazon Glacier, Microsoft® Azure, ElephantDrive®, Dropbox® and Google Cloud Storage, and restored to the TS-EC2480U R2 anytime.
Highly-efficient storage solution for video editing
Digital film and video production produces volumes of data that require high performance RAID storage with sustainable throughput to balance with the demanding output of video editing. The TS-EC2480U R2 fulfills storage and video editing needs with a high speed 10GbE network interface. Digital videos can be quickly stored and edited on the TS-EC2480U R2 directly over the network.
File synchronization across multiple devices
The Qsync utility turns your TS-EC2480U R2 into a safe data center for file synchronization with large storage capacity. Any file uploaded to the TS-EC2480U R2 will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops or mobile devices. Qsync is especially useful for frequent travelers to manage files and always have the most updated files on different devices. Qsync provides multiple ways of file synchronization and group file sharing, greatly enhancing the flexibility of collaboration.
Install-on-demand apps extend NAS features
The TS-EC2480U R2 has built in App Center providing various install-on-demand apps developed by QNAP and third-party developers, including backup/sync, business, content management, communications, download, entertainment, and so on.
