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.

Do you have a qnap service center dubai
QNAP has no legal personality in the UAE (as of 2022). We at PNP are their authorized service partner and can help you with QNAP after sales and techincal services.
qnap where is os stored
OS is stored in 2 places. Partly on the DOM ( Disk on Module) and partly on the internal drives. You cannot boot your entire NAS OS from DOM alone. Also, the OS on DOM and OS on the hard drives must have the same version. If you swap the disks between 2 QNAPs and the OS version of DOM and the disk do not match, QNAP will warn you and give you the option to upgrade the firmware
Does qnap have a middle east office
No, at the time of writing this response (2022), QNAP does not have an office in the Middle East. At PNP, we can help you with any service requests you may have regarding QNAP
qnap which raid to use
If you have only 2 hard disks, it is better to use RAID1. If you have 3-8 hard disks, you can use RAID5. If you have 8-12 hard disks, it is better to use RAID6. The more parity disks you have, the more protection against disk failures you get.

qnap where are apps installed
Apps are installed on one of the system volumes. You have the option to select a volume when installing each APP. It is quite possible to install different apps on different volumes.
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

Your NAS is also a surveillance solution
QVR Pro, QNAPs new surveillance solution, provides 8 embedded monitoring channels, allowing you to quickly build a home surveillance environment hosted on your QNAP NAS without any extra software needed. Businesses can easily expand the number of monitoring channels (up to 128 channels) by purchasing QVR Pro licenses to deploy a large-scale surveillance network. QVR Pro uses an independent operating environment on your QNAP NAS, and by leveraging the storage expandability of the NAS your surveillance videos can be safely stored for on-demand playback.
Whats the difference between QVR Pro and other NAS-based surveillance systems?
In the past, surveillance applications were just one of the many applications on NAS. There was no dedicated storage for surveillance recordings and usually the system performance was limited, making it unsuitable to fulfill the requirements of professional surveillance systems. QVR Pro, QNAPs brand-new surveillance application, introduces the concept of "dedicated storage space" to ensure that the storage is fully reserved for QVR Pro and the system performance will not be impacted by other applications on NAS.
Open Event Platform
The API can connect QVR Pro with a wide range of IoT applications. These resources can be easily shared to make the surveillance system secure and more intelligent.
QVR Pro has an independent operating environment from QTS, ensuring dedicated storage space, high-quality recordings, and no performance interference.
Expandable Storage Capacity
You can easily expand your storage capacity by simply connecting expansion enclosuresto your NAS or by using QNAPs VJBOD to use the unused storage of another QNAP NAS.
Powerful camera management and support
QVR Pro supports thousands of camera models from over 140 brands and a variety of image formats, allowing you to quickly build different surveillance solutions tailored to your environments while providing convenient camera management.
Supports ONVIF/ QUSBCam2
QVR Pro supports over 140 brands and ONVIF cameras. You can also install QNAPs QUSBCam2 app to turn a budget-friendly USB webcam into a networked camera.
Cross-network Camera Search
Easily add cameras from different networks, providing greater convenience for organizations with multi-network environments.
Add and Manage Camera by Batch
Save time when deploying large numbers of cameras by batch-adding cameras. Cameras with the same brand/model can be added with the same settings.
Open Event Platform
Record into QVR Pro by using the RTSP/RTMP link with no integration needed. Multiple video sources are possible, and are not limited to IP cameras.
Optimal Bandwidth Management
Assign dedicated bandwidth to each camera to optimize the use of NAS system resources and ensure smoother recordings.
By supporting 360-degree cameras, you can easily monitor every corner of your environment without having to deploy large numbers of cameras.
Flexible recording space management
Pre-allocate storage capacity and assign dedicated storage space for each cameras recordings based on the camera's monitoring scope and importance. You can also set the maximum and minimum recording days for individual cameras and get a usage overview of all video recording spaces at a glance.
Allocate System Resources for Event Recordings
Assign separate streaming resources and allocate dedicated storage spaces for general recordings and event recordings. This ensures that important events have more system resources. For example, recording events to an SSD can ensure optimal read and write performance to speed up event alerts to reduce your response time.
A Failover Recording Space for 24/7 Recording
You can set a spare volume in the recording space for your recordings. If the original volume fails, recordings will be stored on the spare volume.
Expandable Capacity for Long-term Archiving
The high scalability of QNAP NAS provides key advantages to QVR Pro. When running out of recording spaces, you can expand your storage capacity by connecting expansion enclosures to your NAS or by using QNAPs VJBOD to use the unused storage space of another QNAP NAS.
QVR Pro Client: live view and playback
The QVR Pro Client client software can be installed on Windows and Mac devices or in QNAPs HD Station on NAS, allowing you to monitor from different platforms and flexibly switch from live view or playback mode to take full control over the monitored area.
Monitor the live view of multiple channels and play recordings on a single interface. With just one click you can switch between live, individual playback and sync playback modes. You can also view recordings at a specific time by clicking the time line or by selecting a time range.
The QVR Pro Client provides a highly-customizable display panel. You can change each channels display ratio, arrange the display, or use the built-in display module to fulfill your surveillance needs.
Region of Interest
The updated Region of Interest (ROI) feature supports multiple regional images from the same camera in live view and playback mode. You can define and enlarge multiple areas on the overview image with no selection limitations or additional licenses required.
The innovative Qdewarp enables users to view standard fisheye camera recordings in proportional ratios and sizes without affecting original recordings. The distorted parts on the edges can be turned into a clear panoramic view.
If an event occurs, you can quickly know the cameras location on the e-map to ensure a timely response.
Multiple Notification Methods
The event notification provides multiple ways of being informed of emerging events, including flashing red borders of channels, alert buzzers, and the motion icon on the e-map.
With advanced video indexing technology, you can have up to ten-times faster playback speeds than the previous version and up to five-times faster exporting of surveillance recordings.

Faster Export :
Monitor at anytime anywhere with the QVR Pro Client mobile app
The QVR Pro Client mobile app provides multiple display layouts and allows you to monitor multiple channels simultaneously. Under single channel view, you can quickly switch between live and playback modes. If your network connection is slow or metered/capped, you can choose the low-bandwidth mode to view a bandwidth-optimized stream without affecting the quality of recordings. In addition, you can remotely control PTZ cameras and the cameras preset point from the app. Other features include camera view from the e-map and mobile notifications.
The most open surveillance platform
"Open" is the core design concept of QVR Pro. QNAP invites developers to use QVR Pros resources to build their own network monitoring automation services. Various APIs are provided by QNAP to quickly integrate a wide range of cameras, configure event alerts and recordings, and to integrate with IoT devices.
Specific privilege settings
QVR Pro provides detailed privilege settings, allowing for setting individual or group access privileges, providing suitability for environments of all sizes. In addition to the default roles (including Administrator, Supervisor and Viewer), you can create new roles and give customized access to view specific layouts and channels, and also the e-map.
QVR Center - Distributed deployment, centralized management
Whether your organization is based in one building or sprawled across a large campus, QVR Center greatly simplifies your surveillance tasks by allowing central management of multiple QVR Pros installed in your offices, classrooms, public spaces, and other areas. You can also centrally monitor live feeds, play back surveillance footages and receive event notifications from multiple QVR Pros to reduce response times to events.
QVR Guard - uninterruptible recording tasks
QVR Guard is a high-availability failover management app to protect QVR Pro from system failure and to ensure uninterruptible surveillance recordings. QVR Guard features failover functionality that automatically takes over recording tasks from the QVR Pro server if an unexpected system fault or hardware failure occurs. Recording files are saved on the QVR Guard NAS until the QVR Pro system reboots and functions normally. QVR Guard provides dependable redundancy for QVR Pro, ensuring uninterrupted surveillance recordings.
