QNAP Expands Turbo NAS lineup with New Entry-level 4-drive Rack-mounted NAS Server

QNAP has launched a new rack mounted NAS that supports up to 8TB of capacity. Something I would love to add to my system, what with each Blu-ray gobbling up 30GB this would let you store roughly 250 HD movies with no compression or removal of special features.


New 1U Rack-mounted Model Features up to 8TB Capacity, Energy
Efficient Marvell 800Mhz CPU, 512MB of DDRII Memory, and Support for
2.5" and 3.5" Hard Drives

The TS-410U features 4 hot-swappable SATA hard drives
with up to 8TB of total capacity (with 2TB drives) packaged in a
compact 1U rack-mounted chassis. The TS-410U supports 2.5" or 3.5" hard
drives, giving users more flexibility in selecting hard drives for
installation. The TS-410U features a Marvell 800MHz CPU and 512MB DDRII
memory which provides sustained high performance with low power
consumption. The TS-410U 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-410U also supports iSCSI Target service
with Thin Provisioning and dual Gigabit LAN ports with failover and
load-balancing, features generally found on much higher end NAS
servers. The TS-410U 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-410U. The front USB port incorporates a unique "Auto-copy" feature
that is activated by a button on the front panel of the TS-410U and
will copy the contents of a USB device connected to the front USB port
to the NAS.  

The TS-410U can be configured as an FTP server, stand-alone file
server, print server, and even for encrypted remote replication of
another QNAP NAS on the network.


The TS-410U is globally available in October through popular commercial
distributors, resellers, and e-tailers. For more information, including
