Now, this is one press release I have been waiting for. One of my biggest issues with the NAS OS experience was solved with Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 and it was the ability to manage multiple NAS from a single interface. Well, with this app release from QNAP, they are officially back on my “nice” list.
QNAP® Systems, Inc. today announced the release of Q’center, an app that can centrally manage multiple QNAP Network-attached Storage (NAS) units with visualized statistics, allowing IT administrators to check QNAP NAS information and status for easy troubleshooting. Q’center provides immediate and complete information to assist IT administrators in making crucial decisions.
“Q’center can effectively integrate business applications for QNAP NAS. More useful functions will be constantly added to Q’center to provide a total solution for enterprise storage environments,” said Jimmy Yang, product manager of QNAP.
The dashboard provides a quick view to monitor the status of QNAP NAS including disk volumes, real-time CPU usage, and server log information. IT administrators can also create specific dashboards based on different scenarios to meet the needs of enterprise IT management.
Reports are also available for IT administrators to check current and previous NAS statistics. IT administrators can also check the peak times of NAS network usage for optimizing network allocation.
Q’center provides the ability to create universal and unified NAS settings for managing multiple NAS units efficiently, allowing IT administrators to save time and streamline their tasks.
Q’center is now available from the QNAP website (Support > Download Center > App Center). For more information regarding Q’center and other QNAP products, please visit www.qnap.com.
