QNAP Expands Turbo NAS Lineup with New Low Cost 2-drive TS-210 Desktop NAS Server for SOHO and Prosumers

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-210
desktop NAS server targeted specifically at the SOHO and Prosumer
market segments. The TS-210 supports up to 2 3.5" SATA hard drives with
up to 4TB of total capacity (using 2TB drives) and features a Marvell
800MHz CPU and 256MB DDRII memory which provides sustained high
performance with low power consumption. The TS-210 can be configured to
RAID 1 for high data redundancy. The TS-210 also supports iSCSI
Target service with Thin Provisioning and a Gigabit LAN port, features
generally found on much higher end NAS servers. The TS-210 is equipped
3 USB ports (1 front, 2 back panel) for expanding the storage capacity,
printer sharing, or data backup to an external storage device.

The TS-210 is a smart choice for installation in home or home-based
business as it is fully compatible with Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and
UNIX networks. It 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-210 on the home network and play the 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-210 can perform centralized backups of all computers
attached to the network to protect valuable paid downloaded music and
video content, digital pictures, and documents.

"QNAP’s new TS-210 is an attractive addition to a home or home
office network; especially where lots of content is being downloaded
and needs to be shared easily in mixed networks that might include PCs,
Macs, and even game consoles" said Celia Lee, Product Manager of QNAP
Systems, Inc. "The TS-210 also features a new attractive industrial
design so it looks great in either a home or office environment" Ms.
Lee added.

The TS-210 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). 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 and SNMP support. Version 3 includes an all-new AJAX-based web
interface that is extremely easy to use and is broadly compatible with
popular web browsers.

QNAP offers the broadest lineup of NAS server enclosures currently
available. QNAP Turbo NAS series NAS servers are available in 1, 2, 4,
5, 6, and 8-bay desktop (QNAP exclusive feature) and rack mount
configurations to fit the needs of consumer, small/medium business,
workgroups, and entry-level enterprise networks. Most QNAP NAS servers
feature hot-swap removable cartridge drives, and offer unique features
including iSCSI, and dual Gigabit LAN ports with fail-over,
load-balancing and multi-IP setting capabilities for all Intel-based
models. QNAP NAS servers are ideal for simple website hosting,
ultra-high performance RAID storage supporting RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 5+
hot spare (4 drive and higher models), stand-alone file downloading,
network-wide backups, printer sharing, video surveillance, and a whole
lot more. QNAP NAS servers are fully compatible with Windows,
Macintosh, Linux, and UNIX networks and incorporate green power
management technologies.
