Taiwan, Taipei, October 2009
– QNAP Systems, Inc., a leading manufacturer of world class NAS
servers, NVR Video Surveillance Systems, and Network-based Video
Players today expanded their Turbo NAS lineup with the addition of the TS-410
desktop NAS server targeted specifically at the SOHO and Prosumer
market segments. The TS-410 features 4 hot-swappable SATA hard drives
with up to 8TB of total capacity (with 2TB drives) and supports 2.5" or
3.5" hard drives, giving users more flexibility in selecting drives for
installation. The TS-410 features a Marvell 800MHz CPU and 256MB DDRII
memory which provides sustained high performance with low power
consumption. 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 4 USB ports (1 front, 3 back panel) and 2 e-SATA ports
for expanding the storage capacity or backing up the TS-410.

TS-410 is a smart choice for installation in home or home-based
business as it’s fully compatible with Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and
UNIX networks and features a built-in UPnP/ DLNA media server (with
TwonkyMedia enabled) supporting a wide 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.

new TS-410 is a great addition to a home network; especially where lots
of content is being downloaded and needs to be shared easily in mixed
networks that might include Macs, PCs, and even game consoles" said
Meiji Chang, CEO of QNAP Systems, Inc. "The TS-410 can easily and
affordably handle this and many other tasks including centralized
backup so the downloaded content on all the machines in the home
network is protected." Mr. Chang added.

The TS-410
comes with QNAP’s new V3 of its NAS management software, embedded as
firmware, adding significant new features including virtual disk drives
support (up to 8 virtual disks via iSCSI expansion over the network),
exclusive QNAP RAID Recovery that can recover an inactive RAID 1, 5, or
6 due to unintentional removal of drives. Network Discovery Services
are enhanced with new Bonjour support offering zero-configuration
networking for HTTP, SAMBA, FTP, AFP, and SSH based networks, and full
UPnP support. Other new features of the V3 firmware include EXT4
support for very large volumes and file sizes, SNMP support, and bitmap
support for faster rebuilding of RAID volume after a crash or
adding/removing a drive. Version 3 includes an all-new AJAX-based web
interface that is extremely easy to use and is broadly compatible with
popular web browsers.
