What’s New in QNAP QTS 5.0?

Among the notable additions to QTS is QuFTP, a new app that improves both personal and business file transfer experiences. Moreover, exFAT is now natively supported on x86-based QNAP NAS at no cost to users, allowing for faster large file transfer and a more seamless media editing experience.

Another major addition to the QNAP OS is TeamViewer support. With this app, users can remotely manage and connect to all of their QNAP NAS devices from a Windows PC. This essentially gives users a secure remote access solution without requiring knowledge of complex VPN settings. QNAP has also noticeably improved the user interface with things like smoother navigation, a better visual design, a new notice board feature, and a search bar to help users quickly find apps.

Here is QNAP’s detailed rundown of some of the other key new QTS 5.0 apps and features:

  • Free exFAT support for x86-based NAS:
    exFAT is a file system that supports files up to 16EB and is optimized for flash storage (such as SD cards and USB devices) – helping accelerate large media file transfer and sharing.
  • Increased security:
    Supports TLS 1.3, automatically updates QTS and apps, and provides SSH keys for authentication to secure NAS access.
  • WireGuard VPN support:
    The new QVPN 3.0 integrates the lightweight and reliable WireGuard VPN, providing users with secure connectivity and an easy-to-use interface.
  • Boosted NVMe SSD cache performance:
    The new kernel improves NVMe SSD performance and utilization. When cache acceleration is activated, SSD storage can be utilized more efficiently while also offloading memory resources.
  • DA Drive Analyzer with AI-powered diagnostics:
    The DA Drive Analyzer leverages cloud-based AI to predict the expected life of drives, assisting users in planning for eventual drive replacement to protect against potential unexpected downtime and data loss.
  • Enhanced image recognition with Edge TPU:
    By leveraging Edge TPU to QNAP AI Core (the AI-powered engine for image recognition), QuMagie can perform faster face and object recognition, while QVR Face strengthens real-time video analytics for instant facial recognition.
  • QuFTP fulfills secure file transfer:
    QNAP NAS can perform as an FTP server featuring encrypted SSL/TLS connection, QoS bandwidth control, setting FTP transfer limitations or speed limitations for users and groups. QuFTP also supports FTP Clients
