Back up to external drives
By connecting external drives to the Turbo NAS via the eSATA or USB ports, IT administrators can easily configure and copy the shared folders on the Turbo NAS to the external devices. The external hard drive backup supports multiple backup tasks, email notifications, and scheduling, giving IT administrators more flexibility to arrange data backup.
With the supports of external drives in EXT3, EXT4, FAT32, HFS+, and NTFS format and high-speed read/write performance, the Turbo NAS can back up data to these devices and restore the data in Mac and Windows environment.
Advanced external drive backup options allow IT administrators to replicate data to designated local disk volume. When setting up multiple external drives as backup destination, each backup task will be correctly mapped to the corresponding external drive even after the external drives are repeatedly removed and plugged back. IT administrators are rest assured data backup is always functioned correctly.
In addition, the Turbo NAS is compatible with various renowned backup software on the market, such as Acronis® True Image, CA® ARCserve Backup, Retrospect®, Symantec® Backup Exec, LaCie® SilverKeeper and so on. Companies that have already adopted such backup software can immediately back up Turbo NAS data to the external drives by means of the third party backup software.
Back up to remote server via RTRR or rsync
Data in the Turbo NAS can be backed up to another remote Turbo NAS or FTP server on a real-time basis via QNAP’s RTRR (Real-Time Remote Replication) service, or a standard rsync server on scheduling basis via rsync protocol.
With RTRR, the source Turbo NAS will monitor the files and synchronize the changes to the destination server. IT administrators can do backup tasks by instant backup and scheduled backup, with compression and SSH encryption options supported.
Real-time data backup to cloud storage
In addition to physical storage, the Turbo NAS leverages backup storage to the cloud. IT administrators can back up the data from the Turbo NAS to online cloud storage services, such as Amazon S3, ElephantDrive and Symform, and restore the data to your Turbo NAS anytime. Several backup modes are supported, including real-time backup, scheduled backup and so on.
