The Guardian series is the world’s first switch with the QTS operating system built in for VM, container, and other cloud applications, enabling diverse networking and storage solutions. In addition to QVR Pro, VJBOD, and other diverse storage applications, the QTS App Center also supports VMs for running many open-source software applications. Integrated with public cloud services, the QGD-1600 meets the needs of various applications in IP surveillance, storage expansion and network security. The QGD-1600 dual-CPU design enables you to run the networking management interfaces of QSS (QNAP Switch System) and QTS independently. The QGD-1600 offers a user-friendly web interface, QuNetSwitch, to help SMBs easily deploy a flexible and secure IT infrastructure.
QTS and QSS can work independently without interfering each other to ensure continuous operation. For example, when restarting the QTS, the QSS connections will not be interrupted; when rebooting the QSS, the VMs on QTS will keep running.
The QGD-1600 provides comprehensive Layer 2 management features (including VLAN, LACP, and LLDP) for efficient control of networks through IP grouping and bandwidth management. Powerful security functions (including IGMP Snooping, static MAC, QoS, and Wake-on-LAN) are also suitable for simple networking environments and easy deployment. Aside from the QNAP Switch System (QSS), the QGD-1600 also offers the user-friendly web interface software QuNetSwitch (via QTS) to help IT staff control Layer 2 management networks. The overview dashboard and statistical analysis area displays all the information about the switch and devices at a glance, making centralized management of network devices intuitive and easy.
