QNAP Systems, Inc. this past week announced a partnership with Canonical. The partnership will provide an advanced platform for the development of services and applications for the Internet of Things (IoT) using both Ubuntu and QTS operating systems. Canonical and QNAP will cooperate to provide, promote, and enable the creation of an ecosystem of IoT applications across home, SMB and enterprises.

QNAP leverages its NAS operating system, QTS, with its built-in, mature, comprehensive virtualisation platform and further; integrates the Ubuntu operating system to provide a complete and familiar software development platform for software developers. Users are able to enjoy simultaneously the wide variety of apps from the QTS App Centre and diversified services available on Ubuntu.

Using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, QNAP NAS users are able to access an intuitive desktop computer experience with a complete set of productivity and entertainment applications. This universal app format is particularly popular on Ubuntu Core, the embedded version of Ubuntu, opening the door to a world of IoT apps on QNAP NAS.

QNAP Linux Station v1.1.893 is available from the QTS App Centre now and fully supports the latest Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Install Ubuntu 16.04 to enjoy the wealth of services on Ubuntu and start developing IOT and desktop apps using the snap format.

Linux Station Requirements

Linux Station requires a QNAP NAS with at least 4GB RAM. Supported models include: TS-x53A, TS-x51, TS-x53 Pro, TVS-x63, TVS-x71, TVS-x82, TS-x70, TS-x79 and TVS-x80 series.

Container Station v1.3.85 (or newer) needs to be installed on the QNAP NAS.
