Application Scenario Primary Storage for Microsoft Hyper-V QNAP Turbo NAS accelerates the VM VM VM VM VM VM VM VM VM VM VM VM setup of your virtualization infrastructure. You can deploy the Microsoft Hyper-V Turbo NAS as an iSCSI storage for the Microsoft Hyper-V environment. Using Turbo NAS for Hyper-V, you Switch can beneﬁt from QNAP iSCSI features and a High Availability QNAP Turbo NASKey Features environment for your virtual machines. ISOs Repository Active Directory Shared Folders iSCSI Storage Shared Storage for Virtualized Testing Environment In the software development Virtualization Environment for Testing process, R&D and QA teams often Host for R&D Host for QA require different environments and operating systems (Windows/ VM VM VM VM VM VM VM VM Mac/ Linux) to run a wide variety Microsoft Hyper-V Microsoft Hyper-V of applications. To reduce the costs for server setup and increase the work efﬁciency, virtualization environment is established. QNAP Turbo NAS is the perfect shared Switch storage among different OS in Microsoft Hyper-V environment. QNAP Turbo NAS Backup Storage for Existing Virtualization Environment If you have already deployed Microsoft Hyper-V with a primary VM VM VM storage, you may need an additional storage for data backup, archiving, or Microsoft Hyper-V extended storage. QNAP Turbo NAS can be seamlessly integrated to the Hyper-V environment. You can Primary Storage Backup Storage select from 2 to 8-bay Turbo NAS Switch models (tower or rackmount) with up to 16TB storage capacity according to your storage requirements. SNAPSHOT QNAP NAS supports Microsoft Data SNAPSHOT SNAPSHOT Protection which allows you to back up your virtual machines from the primary storage to the NAS. It also works well with third-party backup software such as Symantec Backup Exec to protect your virtualization environment from primary storage failure.
