has expanded its Turbo NAS lineup with two new mid-range NAS servers
targeted at SMB and corporate customers.
The new TS-239 Pro II (a two-drive model) and TS-439 Pro II (a
four-drive model) incorporate the new Intel Atom D410 single-core
processor, which delivers up to 8TB of performance and networked
storage. the TS-239 Pro II and TS-439 Pro II NAS servers are
compatible with VMware’s vSphere4 (ESX 4.0) virtualization platform
and are designed for departmental file sharing, storage, and advanced
server applications in the office environment.
VMware’s vSphere is the industry’s first cloud operating system that
offers a way to reduce IT costs and increase responsiveness,
according to Laurent Change, QNAp’s product manager. The TS-239 Pro
II and TS-439 Pro II Turbo NAS servers ship with new version 3.2 of
the QNAP NAS management software which supports features such as
iSCSI service; supports SPC-3 Persistent Reservation for clustering
in VMware and Windows Server 2008. MPIO and MC/S are also supported.
As well as new DFS support (Folder Aggregation), import of user-list,
and customizable Daylight Saving Time for easier administration, the
next-generation Internet Protocol, IPv6, has been incorporated for
future networking evolution. QNAP’s Web File Manager 2 features an
entirely redesigned user interface and functionality for improved
file sharing and management. WebDAV is also available for users to
collaboratively share, access, and edit files over HTTP and HTTPS.
Additionally, Apple Time Machine back-ups are now supported.
