QNAP Releases HybridMount File-based Cloud Gateway

QNAP Systems, Inc. announced the release of the official version of its new file-based cloud gateway for elastic hybrid cloud environments, HybridMount. This new cloud gateway is all about easing deployment of a highly cost-effective, elastic, and secure hybrid cloud storage environment. The official version of HybridMount now includes Transfer Resource function to improve cloud access though enabling users to allocate NAX processor resources and data transfer bandwidth. 

According to QNAP, the new HybridMount File-based Cloud Gateway allows QNAP NAS users to access cloud storage with standard protocols (including SMB, FTP, AFP, NFS, and WebDAV). Users can now see near-LAN speeds for cloud storage access assuming they have local caching enable on their NAS. Those that are using NAS connected cloud storage can also leverage QTS features such as file management, editing, and multimedia applications. HybridMount gives users the ability to use remote mount service for mounting remote storage or cloud space and can centrally access the data via File Station. Organizations that leverage HybridMount on NAS devices in various locations can map those NAS to the same cloud storage for file synchronization, ensuring they always have the latest file versions. 

HybridMount supports the following cloud storages:

  • Alibaba Cloud
