QNAP Expands Turbo NAS lineup with New Entry-level 4-drive Rack-mounted NAS Server for Workgroup and SMB Customers

QNAP Systems, Inc., a leading manufacturer of world class NAS
servers, NVR Video Surveillance Systems, and Network-based Multimedia
Players today expanded their Turbo NAS lineup with the addition of the TS-410Uonline 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 is packed with essential business features
including cross-platform support for mixed Windows, Macintosh, Linux,
and UNIX environments, centralized backup for all computers attached to
the network, recording of surveillance video from networked IP cameras,
and advanced security features such as policy-based IP blocking,
Windows Active Directory support, and much more. 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
rack-mounted NAS server targeted specifically at the SMB and workgroup
market segments. 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

"Most business users desire a network attached server of high
stability, flexible storage expansion, and low maintenance cost. QNAP
TS-410U packed with abundant server features is the ideal solution for
them," said Laurent Cheng, Product Manager from QNAP Systems, Inc. The
TS-410U offers comprehensive management tools, such as schedule power
on/off feature, smart fan settings, e-mail and SMS alert, detailed
event and connection logs for IT administrators to maintain the server
easily. They can also view clear summary of the system status, e.g.,
CPU usage, memory size, packets received or sent, system up time, CPU/
system/ HDD temperature, and system fan speed. "The TS-410U is the
valued-added server that business users cannot miss!" Mr. Cheng added.

The TS-410U 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.

QNAP offers the broadest lineup of NAS server enclosures currently
available. QNAP Turbo NAS series 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. QNAP NAS servers feature hot-swap
removable cartridge drives throughout most of the product lineup, and
offer unique features including iSCSI, and dual Gigabit LAN ports with
fail-over, load-balancing and multi-IP setting capabilities for
business and SMB 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, 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.
