QNAP Flexible Volume
QNAP Flexible Volume provides a more secure and flexible way to store and manage the NAS data. This next generation volume offers powerful features such as storage pooling with multiple RAID, thinprovisioned volume with space reclamation, and online capacity expansion.
Secured Storage Pool for over 100-disk Deployment
To ensure the safety of valuable business data, QNAP Flexible Volume provides a secured way to deploy a large volume. The logical volume is allocated from a Storage Pool, which is composed of multiple RAID Groups to gain higher redundancy and reduce the risk of data crash from bad hard drives since the data is dispersed throughout multiple RAID arrays.
Block-based iSCSI LUN
In addition to storing data, the QNAP Flexible Volume can be utilized as an iSCSI LUN at the same time. The block-based iSCSI LUN provides less overhead which improves the over read/write performance. The blockbased iSCSI LUN takes advantages of Flexible Volume such as thinprovisioning LUN with space reclamation and online capacity expansion.
Online Capacity Expansion
Increase the capacity size of the LUNs, volumes, and storage pools on the fly. The Turbo NAS allows you to add more hard drives to increase the storage capacity of the storage pool on demand. The LUN and volumes can also be expanded online without interrupting the services.
Pre-allocate storage to give the appearance of having more capacity than actually available. This allows you to consume storage on demand as data is written to disk, instead of having capacity ahead of time.
Space reclamation complements thin provisioning so storage can be freed and used for other NAS applications. Normally when data is deleted in a Space, the storage capacity cannot be transferred back to the overall storage pool. But with space reclamation, space can be reclaimed and released back to the overall storage pool. This provides a much more efficient space usage.
Alert for Volume/LUN Threshold
An alert can be created once a LUN or volume reaches a particular threshold size with email and SMS notifications. This prevents the storage or volume from running out of space and the administrator can provision a new storage or expand an existing volume before a critical out of space.
SSD Caching Acceleration
Accelerates the IOPS performance by 10 times and reduces I/O latency by 3 times for the storage volumes. This feature is perfect for IOPS demanding applications such as virtualization to significantly improve overall work flow.
10 Gigabit Ethernet Network Ready

Sync in multiple ways
Whenever you add, edit, delete or rename a file on one computer, the change applies to all others linked with the Turbo NAS, so you have exactly identical contents on all your devices.
It allows you to remove files on one computer without affecting the copies stored on others that are linked with the Turbo NAS. However, when someone updates the files you deleted from another computer, you can still retrieve them in the Qsync folder.
Advanced Selective Sync
With both Full Sync or Smart Sync options, you can choose to only sync specific sub-folders within the Qsync folder, useful if your computers have limited storage.
Share files and folders easily
Quickly share files with download links
You can create download links to share files with people, even if they don't have an account on the Turbo NAS. This greatly reduces the time in creating user account and password for users.
Share folders for collaboration
Your life is connected with different groups of people. You can create sub-folders within the Qsync folder, and share each with different groups of Turbo NAS users as a file exchange center. Everyone in the same sub-folder is always kept up-to-date with the latest version of the files.
