QNAP VS-8132U-RP Pro overview

  • 1Description

The Qnap VS-8132U-RP-PRO-US 32-Channel Pro VioStor NVR is an all-in-one 8-bay network surveillance server that supports network-based recording of IP cameras, video recording, playback, and remote data access. This NVR lets you record in H.264, MPEG-4, MxPEG, and M-JPEG formats from up to 32 IP cameras from various manufacturers.

The NVR's Linux-based OS and powerful Intel dual-core processor ensure that you get reliable performance even when recording from multiple megapixel cameras simultaneously. When used with multiple Qnap servers, the VioStor NVR allows monitoring of up to 128 IP cameras. In addition to offering diversified display modes, this NVR supports various recording features such as scheduled recording, alarm recording, and alarm recording schedule. The NVR also lets you search videos data by date, time, timeline, and event.

Equipped with 8 HDD bays with a maximum storage capacity of 24 TB, the VS-8124U-RP Pro VioStor NVR meets the growing demand for storing videos and photos in high-definition. Advanced RAID technology with a hot-swap design ensures uninterrupted system operation and minimizes the chance of video loss due to hard drive failure.

High Reliability and Smart Features

Advanced RAID with Hot-Swap Design
Supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 5+ hot spare, 6+ hot spare, single, and JBOD disk configurations, and its hot-swap design allows a failed drive of a disk volume, RAID 1 or above, to be replaced by hot swapping without turning off the NVR
Online RAID Capacity Expansion
Can be expanded by replacing the hard drives with larger ones. All the data will be kept and seamlessly moved to the newly installed hard drives without turning off the NVR during the process
Online RAID Level Migration
Upgrade the disk configuration to higher RAID level with the data retained without turning off the NVR
S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology)
Helps the administrator monitor the hard disk drives status
HDD Health Scanning (HHS)
Allows disk checking and bad blocks scanning
Intelligent Automatic System Startup
System turns on automatically when power resumes after a power outage
UPS Support for 24/7 Service
Supports APC, CyberPower, MGE, and YEC UPS devices to provide continuous services 24/7 against unexpected power outage
DOM Architecture with Embedded Fail-Safe Dual OS
All the applications are embedded on the DOM. Since the NVR allows the system to boot without accessing the physical disk sectors, system startup is not interrupted due to any bad block sectors or file errors on the hard drives; two operating systems offer alternative system booting options upon every system startup - if one fails, the other will be used to boot up instead and the failed OS is recoverable from the other healthy OS

Network Services

LAN ports of the VioStor NVR can be configured in failover mode, which allows the NVR to sustain the failure of one network interface and provide continuous services
Load Balancing
LAN ports of the VioStor NVR can be configured in load balancing mode for bandwidth aggregation to boost file transfer speeds; works with managed Ethernet switch with 802.3ad configured
Multi-IP Settings
2 IP settings can be configured on the NVR to allow network access from 2 different subnets
Built-In DDNS Service
A unique domain name can be registered from a DDNS service provider and assigned to the NVR
Built-In NTP Server
Allows the connected IP cameras to synchronize their date and time settings with the NVR
Convenient Data Access
You can access the recording data on the NVR through the Network Neighborhood (SMB/ CIFS), Web File Management (HTTP), or FTP server

Easy Configuration and Management

Simple System Setup
Can be set up in 6 simple steps by the local display or web-based interface (Internet Explorer)
Web-Based User Interface
All system configurations, monitoring, and playback features of the NVR can be managed by the web-based interface
Smart Search of IP Cameras
Intelligent software utility finder for quick IP cameras search and system settings on the local network

Hardware Design

Intel Core i3 CPU and DDRIII Memory
