A handy notepad
on your private cloud
digital notetaking tools to create personal notepads is becoming increasingly popular, from
Microsoft® Office OneNote™ 2003 to the well-known notetaking service Evernote. Cloud-based
notetaking applications are incredibly useful and convenient as they allow users to access data from anywhere at
anytime and does not require the installation of notetaking software. But the content of notes is incredibly important
for users, and trusting this content to cloud storage means potentially exposing it to a data breach or hack. Even the
leading notetaking service provider was hacked in 2013, leading to them asking their millions of users to reset their
QNAP has now leveraged its private cloud functionalities to introduce Notes Station. It provides the convenience of
notetaking on cloud-based services but with the privacy and security of Turbo NAS. Users do not have to worry about
risks from public storage, and are able to enjoy easier data access at all times.

Is it safe to put personal notes
on the public cloud?
Cloud services = Software + Data storage
Under the concept of cloud services, the software and data storage are integrated on cloud services. For example,
Evernote makes note-taking available and accessible online. When users access the cloud service and leave personal
data on the service's storage, it may raise both privacy and security concerns.
Public cloud:
we trust the service provider with our data
You know
what ?
Private cloud:
we manage and control the data ourselves
Statistics show that many famous cloud services have been attacked and have led to
asking their users to change passwords. An industry-leading cloud notetaking service
provider was once hacked, and although they stated that no data was stolen, they still
forced their users to reset their passwords.
Private cloud: convenience & security
QNAP's private cloud allows users to easily create personal cloud services that are available via network and controlled
by the users themselves. Notes Station allows users to effortlessly create their own notebooks and completely control
their ideas and data.

Hacking puts a company out of business
An US-based source code hosting provider was hacked on June 17, 2014 and held to
ransom. When the attackers failed to receive the ransom, they stopped the company's
online services and deleted almost the entire customer database. In the end, the company was effectively
forced out of business by the attacker, and their customers lost a huge amount of important data.

User Experience
From a current QNAP user…
David is 25 years old. Although he just started work a year ago, he has been using a QNAP
Turbo NAS for 3 years. Let's see how he uses Notes Station in his work and life.
How do you use the Notes Station for notetaking?
David: As I work in the IT industry, I need to learn new things quickly. I often surf
the web to gather information, but I'm not able to put my notes on the cloud due to
my work. For me, Notes Station is an easy tool for recording online information and
classifying multiple notes for easy searching. It offers a three-layer architecture to
classify notes, including notebooks, sessions, and pages - making it more useful for
notetaking compared to other cloud notes platforms that only have one-layer.
How do you collect online information and organize into useful notes?
David: Notes Station Clipper is a great tool to capture web page content. I
can edit the captured content to organize it better, or just capture the full
page or selected items .
What feature of Notes Station surprises
you the most?
David: The full-screen preview function of the Qnotes mobile
app is surprisingly easy-to-use. Once I read some comics on a
forum and thought about saving the content in Notes Station
for reviewing next time. I just had to open Qnotes on my mobile
phone, and click on the pictures one by one to read. It's just like
reading a comic book.

User Experience
From a current QNAP user…
Shirley is a 23-year-old sales person. She recently bought her first QNAP Turbo NAS due to
her boyfriend's recommendation and Notes Station is her first experience to use the private
cloud application.
Why do you want to use
Notes Station?
Shirley: I previously used a cloud notes platform
and paid US$45 a year for the professional version.
But Notes Station is free so I can save my money.
Notes Station also allows you to import from cloudbased notes, and it is absolutely easy-to-use.
Was it difficult to build the
private cloud notes system?
Shirley: Not at all. In the QTS App Center, you just
click on the app to install it. It's no different to using
the app center on a smartphone.
What kind of notes you
take with Notes Station?
What other experiences have
you had with Notes Station?
Shirley: My work requires me to go out for
meetings and to visit customers. Using digital notes
is quite convenient for me as I can take pictures
and record audio and easily make this data part of
my report. In meetings it is especially useful as I can
immediately take pictures of the white board with
our discussion on it, and add my own notes to it as
Shirley: I invited my boyfriend to use Notes
Station together. Because we are in a long-distance
relationship, we use Notes Station as a platform to
keep a diary and share our diary with each other. It is
safely stored on our private cloud so we don't need to
worry about privacy issues.

QNAP Transcoding Center
Mobile devices are taking over the world, and more and more people are starting to use them as their
movie player of choice. But the diverse number of video formats used (MP4, AVI, MKV, etc) have made it
inconvenient for users to watch videos as their device may lack the necessary codecs. One way around this
is called "Transcoding". Background transcoding is supported by the Turbo NAS and can process your videos
into universally-used video formats. Users only need to choose their device's resolution and the video files
they want to watch will be transcoded for watching on mobile devices via the Internet.
Background Transcoding
Background Transcoding allows you to
convert videos to optimized resolutions for
accommodating slower/restricted network
environments and device limitations.
Why do we need transcoding?
With the popularity of high-definition smartphones and digital cameras, video resolutions are getting higher. A higher
resolution means larger file sizes and more bandwidth needed for streaming. Transcoding creates videos with optimal
resolutions for sharing & watching in order to save bandwidth, but also retains the unaltered original video on the
Turbo NAS.
Smart transcoding adapts to suit different bandwidth

Background Transcoding Technology
You can add videos to a transcoding list and use the Turbo NAS to convert the original high resolution video for use with
multiple resolutions. Then you can select an appropriate resolution to match your environment when sharing or watching.
Auto transcoding
When you set a Turbo NAS folder as an
auto-transcoding folder, the Turbo NAS
will automatically convert the videos in
this folder to the resolution you have
set. For example, if you set the folder
to 360P, the video will be automatically
transcoded to this resolution as a
background task when you upload to
this folder.

can set the Turbo NAS to transcode videos when you are at work or
when you are asleep. This way you can come home or wake up and
immediately watch videos on your mobile devices.

Qsync: A Powerful Utility for File
Synchronization in Personal Applications
Public cloud files synchronization services allow family members to share large multimedia files, but comes with
certain drawbacks:
1. Security: there is the possibility of data on public cloud services being hacked, leaked or intercepted.
2. Cost: the greater the size of your data storage needs, the greater
the cost of the service (US$9.99 per month for 1TB storage space on
Google Drive.)
With Qsync on Turbo NAS, you can create a Google Drive like
private cloud with a large storage capacity to fulfill
your needs. Any files added to the Qsync folder
will be accessible across multiple devices, and
synchronized with different work groups flexibly
and effortlessly. With no additional costs or
storage limits, Qsync can centralize files from
different family members and help them share
their files anytime, anywhere.
7 reasons why you need Qsync
1. Cross-device synchronization
Qsync turns your Turbo NAS into a safe data center for file synchronization. Every file uploaded to the Qsync folder
is made available to multiple devices including computers, laptops and mobile devices. When you are away on a
business trip, Qsync ensures that the most up-to-date files are accessible on all linked devices and reduces your
need to rely on USB storage to carry files and on emails to get the latest files.
