In addition, QTS 5.1.0 supports QNAP Authenticator passwordless login, improves delegated admin functionality for management productivity and data security, and has improved capabilities for automatically replacing RAID disks. This using third-party tools such as S.M.A.R.T., Western Digital Device Analytics, IronWolf Health Management and ULINK DA Drive Analyzer.
