TAIPEI, Taiwan, Aug. 21 /PRNewswire/ — The leading storage solution provider QNAP Systems, Inc. today announced its All-in-One TS-409 Pro Turbo NAS has been honored with the "Golden Bear Award" from Bjorn3d.com and "Editor's Choice" from techPowerUp.com for its complete functions, good performance, ease of use, and outstanding RAID features for data protection.
The 4-bay, hot-swappable TS-409 Pro Turbo NAS is designed for business users who require high performance, mass storage, and useful server features. Powered by 500 MHz CPU and 256MB DRII memory, the NAS supports a wide range of enterprise-grade server features, e.g. RAID 0/ 1/ 5/ 6/ 5+spare disk redundancy, Online RAID Capacity Expansion, Online RAID Level Migration, HDD S.M.A.R.T. and complete log system. According to Bjorn3d, "After more than a month of use extensively testing the TS-409 we were left very favorably impressed, especially with the seemingly endless array of features and available configurations … [The TS-409 Pro] offered good performance, data protection, and differentiated themselves from their competition."
The TS-409 Pro offers advanced RAID protection features which are rarely seen in other NASes of the same level. The unique Online RAID Capacity Expansion enables users to purchase the most cost-effective hard drives for initial server setup and upgrade to larger ones in the future. The Online RAID Level Migration allows users to start from one drive firstly and add more to upgrade the RAID level in the future with the data retained. As techPowerUp commented, "The added value comes from the extra disks and RAID levels supported. And when I say RAID I'm not talking about a simple onboard controller; the QNAP TS-409 Pro surprised me with RAID 6 (although slightly pointless with only 4 disks) and features like online expansion and migration. Such functionality is usually only found on advanced controllers you'd find in high-end servers."
The TS-409 Pro supports multiple file sharing protocols for users to share files across Linux, UNIX, Mac, and Windows platforms. It also offers abundant valuable server functions including File Server, FTP Server, Web Server and Printer Server, comprehensive event log, etc. Moreover, the TS-409 Pro adopts a silent fan and power-saving design which is excellent for long-term operation and deployment in small business environment without server room. Besides, the HDD S.M.A.R.T. provides complete information of the hard drive status to prevent potential physical drive failure.
