QNAP Systems (http://www.qnap.com), a provider of NAS servers, NVR
video surveillance systems, and network-based video players — has
expanded their Turbo NAS lineup with the addition of the TS-410
desktop NAS server targeted specifically at the SOHO (small
office/home office) and prosumer market segments. It will be
available in October; pricing hasn’t been announced.
The TS-410 features four hot-swappable SATA hard drives with up to
8TB of total capacity (with 2TB drives) and supports 2.5-inch or
3.5-inch hard drives. It features a Marvell 800MHz CPU and 256MB
DDRII memory. The TS-410 can be configured for RAID 0/1/5/6/5+ spare,
and JBOD with online RAID capacity expansion and online RAID level
migration for high data redundancy.
The TS-410 also supports iSCSI Target service with Thin Provisioning
and dual Gigabit LAN ports, features generally found on much higher
end NAS servers. The TS-410 also features four USB ports and 2 e-SATA
ports for expanding the storage capacity or backing up the TS-410.
The TS-410 is compatible with Mac, Windows, Linux, and UNIX networks
and features a built-in UPnP/ DLNA media server (with TwonkyMedia
enabled) supporting a range of DLNA media players such as Sony PS3
and Microsoft Xbox 360 gaming consoles. By installing the DLNA/ UPnP
application on your iPhone or iPod touch, users can access the TS-410
on the home network and play videos, music, and photos from the
server over the network.
In addition, the high-speed PC-less Download Station with the unique
QGet utility enables users to manage the BT/ FTP/ HTTP download tasks
remotely over the local network or the Internet. The TS-410 can
perform centralized backups of all computers attached to the network
to protect valuable paid downloaded music & video content, digital
pictures, and documents.
