QNAP Systems has announced a 2.5-inch SATA HDD, 4-bay, Intel
Atom-based SS-439 Pro Turbo NAS dedicated to SMB and SOHO users.
Designed with Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz CPU, 1GB DDRII memory, and DOM
(Disk on Module) architecture, the SS-439 Pro is the most compact,
powerful, and power-saving 2.5″ 4-bay NAS that supports RAID 5/ RAID
6 for highly secure data protection.
The NAS supports four 2.5-inch SATA hard drives which are featured
with high stability, low power consumption, low vibration, and longer
life expectancy. With excellent cooling and energy-saving design, the
power consumption of the NAS with four hard drives installed is as
low as 18W. Moreover, the SS-439 Pro supports 3 USB 2.0 ports and 2
eSATA ports for storage capacity expansion and backup destination,
and advanced features such as built-in iSCSI target service (max 8
iSCSI devices) with Thin Provisioning, Online RAID Capacity
Expansion, Online RAID Level Migration, AES 256-bit volume-based
encryption, Wake on LAN, automatic policy-based IP blocking, instant
SMS and email alert, BT and eMule download, schedule power on and

“The SS-439 Pro is a compact, silent, and power-saving server which
is ideal to work for long hours in the office. When four low power
2.5″ hard drives are installed, the power consumption of the NAS is
only 18W, which is almost the same as an energy-saving light bulb. It
is an environment-friendly storage solution that largely saves the
electricity expense of the users and minimizes pollution to the
earth,” says Jerry Deng, product manager from QNAP.
The SS-439 Pro is a powerful server of diversified features, e.g.
network server, FTP server, web server with built-in phpMyAdmin,
Joomla, MySQL/ SQLite, editable php.ini, printer server (up to 3
printers), etc. The exclusive QPKG software expansion feature enables
the users to add more software applications to the NAS server such as
setting up their own mail server by XDove or web page or online
communication system with the customers by WordPress. Moreover, the
users can make use of the Surveillance Station (network surveillance)
with maximum four IP-based cameras for office security monitoring.
