QNAP Systems (http://www.qnap.com) has announced the TS-x19P+ lineup of Turbo NAS servers targeted primarily for home and SOHO users. The new models utilize Marvell’s new 1.6GHz embedded processor and include 512MB of DDRIII memory and Gigabit LAN ports.
The new models include the 1-drive TS-119P+, 2-drive TS-219P+ and 4-drive TS-419P+ and tout up to 8TB of networked storage. NAS servers are becoming a popular addition to home and SOHO networks as they solve the problem of how to share digital pictures, music, and videos among computers in the home without resorting to a USB keychain drive, says Tony Lu, product manager for QNAP.
QNAP’s new TS-x19P+ models are easy to attach to an existing home network and provide easy file sharing between Macs, Windows systems, Linux, and UNIX-based computers, he adds. QNAP’s TS-x19P+ NAS servers can also provide automatic backup of all computers on the network, host websites, record home security surveillance video from IP cameras on the network, be a UPnP-compliant media server, and act as a stand-alone file server for BT/FTP/HTTP and eMule downloads.
The TS-x19P+ series supports 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch SATA II hard drives with up to 2TB capacity, and storage capacity can be expanded by connecting eSATA or USB storage devices to the NAS. Contact QNAP for pricing options.
