As a multi-role storage device, XCubeNAS can play a major role in many different applications. In the simplest scenario, the XN8000R can be a file sharing server with high bandwidth. For media/video applications, it has the performance and the stability for intensive media editing by a single user or by a group of users. Another common use case is IP surveillance storage where recording every frame is of utmost importance.
Embedded Linux-based QSM 3.0 (QSAN Storage Management3.0) with 128-bit ZFS file system featuring reliable storage management, protection against data corruption, seamless capacity expansion, several data integrity mechanisms, pool and disk encryption protection, unlimited snapshots, unlimited clones, thin provisioniing, full quota management capabilities (with AD, LDAP and Windows ACL support) and of course all RAID levels up to RAID 60.
Smart Auto Tiering and Caching
The design of the XN8000R Series allows for creating customized storage pools and auto categorization of data based on usage. “Hot” data will be moved to front line storage while “cold” data is stored on slower disks. Front line storage could be SSDs, or SSDs could be used as a cache instead depending on your needs.
Fast RAID Rebuild
When a drive fails in a RAID set, the XN8000R are capable of rebuilding the data blocks that have been used, and not the entire RAID set. This helps reduce the risk of data loss during the rebuilding process.
Built-in Client Backup Software - XReplicator
Comprehensive data backup is the solution to all your data loss woes. Backup all your data on your computer to your XCubeNAS with QSAN’s free untility, XReplicator. XReplicator is a feature rich solution to backup an entire PC with bare metal restore capability.
Backup the NAS to Amazon S3, Google Drive, OneDrive and Dropbox
Amazon ® S3 enables users to backup the whole array to a remote site instead of another XCubeNAS or devices. Using Google Drive, OneDrive, and Dropbox, you can build a hybrid cloud which allows you to access and backup the files on mobile devices, PCs, or thin clients anytime and anywhere. The XCubeNAS can be a cloud gateway to bridge your public cloud and private content and act as a central access point.
Self-encrypting Drive Support + built-in Pool Encryption
With SED drives, even if the physical drive is stolen or misplaced, the data on it remains protected against data breach by generating the authentication key (AK) to prevent the unauthorized access. For non-SED drives, XCubeNAS supports FIPS 140-2 validated, up to AES 256-bit encryption for internal drives and external USB/eSATA drives.
The built-in antivirus function periodically scans files automatically quarantining suspicious files to protect the system from potential threats.
