The TS-419U+ can be configured for RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 5+ hot spare, or JBOD with online RAID capacity expansion and online RAID level migration for high data redundancy. The TS-419U+ supports iSCSI target service with Thin Provisioning, dual Gigabit LAN ports with failover and load-balancing, and Wake on LAN. The TS-419U+ also features four USB ports and 2 e-SATA ports for expanding the storage capacity or backing up the NAS.
The TS-419U+ is packed with business features, including cross-platform support for Mac, Windows, Linux, and UNIX environments, centralized backup for all computers attached to the network, recording of surveillance video from IP cameras, and security features such as policy-based IP blocking, Windows Active Directory support, and much more.
The TS-419U+ can be configured as an FTP server, file server, print server, and even for encrypted remote replication of another QNAP NAS on the network. It will be available later this month.
