Leading Enterprise-level
NAS Operating System

QSM 3.0 (QSAN Storage Management3.0) is a NAS operation system for QSAN XCubeNAS series. The core of QSM is Linux kernel and in-house fine-tuning 128-bit ZFS (Petabyte File System) file system.QSM’s powerful storage features ensure persistent, reliable storage management, protection against data corruption, seamless capacity expansion, several data integrity mechanisms, pool and disk encryption protection, unlimited snapshots, and unlimited clones.
Advanced Storage Technology
XN8012R tailor-made storage pool technology effectively caters to diverse storage demands on data integrity, scalability, high performance and availability. Comprehensive RAID levels are supported to ensure data integrity under every application scenario. Pool capacity could be expanded on the fly, rapidly responding to growing needs of for capacity. The design of the XN8012R allows for creating customized storage pools and auto categorization of data based on usage. “Hot” data will be moved to front line storage while “cold” data is stored on slower disks. All this is done automatically with the XN8012R.
Wide RAID Type Support and Instant RAID
XN8012R provides comprehensive RAID levels, 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, 60, for various application scenarios. Each RAID type can be instantly deployed with no initialization or synchronization phase, delivering safe, protected and high-performance storage space without any delays
Fast Rebuild
When a drive fails in a RAID set, the XN5004R is capable of rebuilding the data blocks that have been used, and not the entire RAID set. This helps reduce the risk of data loss during the rebuilding process.
User Defined Pool
Thinking ahead to common usage situations, the XN5004R provides three optimized solutions for pools to achieve high performance and availability for dedicated storage applications:
  • Generic: Default type for generic file service or backup usage.
  • Media: Optimize IOPS for small packets of sequential RW and throughput for large, random packets.
  • Database: Data is synchronized between the memory cache and disks in real time for assurance of database Integrity.
Smart Auto-tiering
By using auto-tiering, it helps increase the performance of your business application without crippling your budget. The XCubeNAS features auto-tiering technology which makes the system continuously analyzes the accessing frequency of your data for better data transmission. The most frequently used data will move to higher speed tier, on the other hand, the less commonly used data will move to capacity tier. Demanding workloads of your business applications could be dramatically reduced, and the performance increased without massive investment in expensive all flash storage devices – this is all done by the XCubeNAS’s intelligent auto-tiering technology.
Deep Into SSD Caching
SSD cache is a large secondary cache that boosts data access speed by positioning SSD drives between primary DRAM memory cache and hard disks.
Thin Provisioning
“Take whatever you need.” That’s the philosophy of thin provisioning. Thin provisioning lets various services and applications use the same storage space without limiting how much of the quota can be used by each. With thin provisioning, space resources are dynamically distributed to the most demanding, responding to your business applications with higher flexibility and promising potentials.
Data Deduplication
The data deduplication feature of the XN8012R is an in- line, block-level function that checks the block similarity of data as it enters the system When duplicated blocks are found, they are not written to disk, therefore saving space.
Centralized Data Storage &
File Sharing

The XN8012R provides lightning fast and secure ways to share files with anyone, anywhere. You can explore, organize, and move files between your computer and the XN8012R, all the while, being able to customize access rights to enhance security.

Quota Control on Accounts and Share Folders
Take control of your storage space, by adding quotas (limits) to the amount of data a user can store. Users can be limited on how much data a folder can store or the quota can apply to the entire system, thus empowering the admin with complete control of what is stored on the XN5004R.
Windows AD and LDAP Directory Services

By supporting Windows AD and LDAP, the XN5004R enables seamless account integration. Up to 200,000 domain accounts can be joined onto the XN8012R and their Home folder is automatically created, helping IT administrators reduce duplicated sets of credentials and minimizing their workload in giving default account settings and new user setup.
Windows ACLs and Advanced ACLs
Access Control List (ACL) is a permission list specifying what actions specific accounts take on folders and files. Advanced ACL lets you set permissions on subfolders, whereas Windows ACL enables you to apply Windows file permission mechanisms on files and folders. With both kinds of ACL supported, IT administrators can flexibly regulate file access rules no matter what operating system they use, protecting your data from unauthorized access or theft.
Powerful Web File Explorer – File Manager
