Qnap TVS-863+ Golden Cloud Turbo vNAS review

Does Qnap’s new Golden Cloud NAS have the Midas touch?

Cloudy installation

Qnap's slick quick-start cloud portal makes light work of installation. All we had to do was enter the model type along with the unique cloud key on the label on the top surface and register the appliance with our myQNAP cloud account.

This assigns a unique name to the appliance so it's ready for remote web access. Tell the portal whether it's for home or business use and it'll also load up a base set of apps for you.

Alternatively, you can use Qnap's Finder utility to locate the appliance on the network. It's Storage Plug and Connect feature helps create and map NAS shares and it'll also set up iSCSI targets from the same interface.

All the standard RAID arrays are supported and you can also create encrypted volumes
