Hi folks! As you know I am a big fan of the QNAP series of NAS devices for the SMB market. QNAP makes a great product at a great price point.
QNAP has just released a new product at the top of their product line, the 1279 model which allows for a maximum of 12 drives, increasing your maximum capacity using QNAP substantially! Of course with hard drive prices through the roof these days, it might make things temporarily more expensive than usual. The device is also capable of 10GBe connectivity!
However once hard drive prices come back down again, this will make for a great buy. Especially useful for archival/backup storage in your network or even as a SAN for small non-critical VMware environments.
You can read more about the new model here.
