The QNAP VS-8040 VioStor NVR (Network Video Recorder) is a recording and monitoring solution for up to 40 IP cameras, providing up to 16TB of storage. The QNAP VioStor range of NVR servers allow for easy system expansion by adding additional QNAP servers, which can be connected locally or via the Internet, providing monitoring and playback for up to 120 cameras.

Designed for continuous operation with no down time, the QNAP VS-8040 has 8 hot-swappable drive bays allowing hard drives to be replaced during operation and a redundant power supply which will kick-in if the other fails. Advanced RAID configurations ensure your data is safe from hard drive failure and RAID level and capacity can be upgraded without loss of data.

Energy efficient, the QNAP VS-8040 is a green NVR solution which uses only a quarter of the power required by an equivalent PC-based NVR solution and with an embedded Linux system it is less vulnerable to malware attacks. With support for a wide range of IP cameras from leading manufacturers, QNAP NVR servers offers high flexibility when choosing compatible IP cameras.
