QNAP NAS Devices

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

My co-worker Raj and I were going over a solution that we could present to SMB clients, and we were looking for a product that could be utilized pretty much anywhere, well i think we found such a device! QNAP a little known vendor produces some of the coolest NAS devices out there… they range from 2 drive hot-swap enclosures to a whopping 8 drives. With SATA-2 drives being 2TB, just think of how much space you can have… 14TB Raid 5 with a hot-spare, that’s crazy. The price is very affordable as well,  you have to check out the web interface. Watch the video below and let me know what you think!

The specific device that we are looking into is the QNAP TS-439 Pro Turbo NAS. See Insert below from their website.

QNAP TS-439 Pro is the new generation 4-bay model of the worldwide award-winning Turbo NAS Series, providing superior performance for massive data sharing, powerful all-in-one business server features, advanced RAID data protection, built-in iSCSI target service, AES 256-bit volume-based encryption, and rock-solid hot-swappable hard drive design for business.

Powered by Intel 1.6 GHz CPU, 1GB DDRII memory, the TS-439 Pro delivers superior performance for multiple business applications. Advanced RAID configurations, including RAID 0/ 1/ 5/ 6/ 5+Spare, JBOD, Online RAID Capacity Expansion, and Online RAID Level Migration are all supported.

All in all, I would love to get my hands on one of these devices! Hey QNAP, why don’t you send me one and I can review it! 🙂

Have a great Friday!
