QNAP Systems has announced three new Turbo NAS models: the TS-419P II (4-drive), TS-219P II (2-drive), and TS-119P II (single-drive), positioned to provide corporate workgroups, SOHO, and home users with budget-friendly network attached storage (NAS) solutions for efficient data backup and convenient file sharing.
The new models can be upgraded to the latest, free to download QNAP NAS firmware (version 3.5), with many new features and enhancements, and are backed by a two-year warranty.
The new models of the TS-x19P II series are equipped with a 2.0GHz Marvell processor, 512Mb DDR3 memory and one or two Gigabit LAN ports.
The products can be easily integrated into an existing network of workgroups, provide centralised storage with antivirus protection, cross-platform data sharing for Windows, Mac, Linux, and UNIX users, as well as secure connections for users to access data on the server via FTP, a Web-based file manager, or WebDAV.
With the MyCloudNAS service, the new models can also be converted into private cloud storage systems for remote access from the Internet.
“QNAP’s performance testing reveals the new models can achieve a download speed of 109Mbps and upload speed of 75Mbps in a Windows networking environment,” says Laurent Cheng, product manager of QNAP.
“The new models are also extremely energy efficient, consuming as little as four watts in sleep mode or seven watts in operation.”
Additionally, the TS-x19P II series can provide backup storage for Windows users using QBack backup software and Mac users using Time Machine, host multiple Web sites, share USB printers over a network, and record security surveillance video from IP cameras on the network.
For home environments, the TS-x19P II series can stream multimedia content to UPnP-compliant home devices, act as a 24/7 download centre via BT/FTP/HTTP and eMule protocols, and is remotely accessible by iOS and Android handheld devices.
