How to do qnap to qnap backup
With QNAP's HBS (Hybrid Backup Sync) you can easily backup from one QNAP to another QNAP. You need a network path between the 2 QNAPs and the login credentials for the target QNAP.
qnap what is a storage pool
The storage pool is the aggregate of many RAIDs in the QNAP. At the bottom are the disks (HDDs or SSDs), multiple disks join together to create a RAID group, and finally multiple RAID groups are combined to create a storage pool. Volumes and LUNS are created on top of the storage pool.
qnap where are snapshots stored
Snapshots are pure Data pointers, so they are stored on the same volume for which you create SNAPSHOTS. You have the option of replicating the snapshots to another QNAP also.
qnap how to replace failed drive
Replacing a defective hard drive is as simple as removing the defective hard drive and replacing it with a new hard drive of the same (or larger) size. The hard drive should preferably be the same brand and quality ( WD Red should be replaced with WD Red and Seagate Exos with Seagate Exos). The system will recognize the new drive and start rebuilding the RAID. If you use a larger drive, it will be downsized to the smaller capacity of other drives in your RAID
what are qnap snapshots
QNAP snapshots are like Windows snapshots. They allow you to quickly restore your data to a previous state. Technically, snapshots work with data pointers so that the same data is not saved twice and storage space is used efficiently. For example, on January 1, you had 100 MB of data. On January 2, you deleted 10 MB and added 30 MB of new data, so your storage space is 120 MB. With snapshots, your total storage footprint is only 130 MB. With those 130 MB, you can restore your 100 MB from January 1 and the 120 MB from January 2 ( Since there is 90MB of common data between 2 data sets, add 10MB to this and you get Jan1 data, add 30MB to this and you get Jan2 data) . Snapshots are great for protecting against accidental deletion or modification of data and also provide protection against ransomware
what are qnap devices
QNAP makes network attached storage. A storage that connects to your network (as opposed to a USB drive that connects to your USB port). The advantage of connecting it to the network is that it can be easily shared, permissions can be defined as to who can access what, and it can do many tasks for you since it is always on (it can work as a firewall, VPN server, proxy server, torrent downloader). The hardware is robust and offers multiple fail-safes like RAID, snapshots, dual network ports, etc.

qnap what is bitmap
A bitmap helps to quickly synchronize your RAID. Without a bitmap, all data from RAID is synchronized when a disk is disconnected from the RAID group. With the bitmap enabled, only the data that changed while the disk was disconnected is synchronized. This faster synchronization applies only to all existing disks that have data on them. During a RAID rebuild with new disks it does not help
