QNAP system has introduced what it claims to be the first Thunderbolt 2 Turbo vNAS TVS-871T with 20 Gbps bandwidth aimed directly at people using 4K workflows. The device supports Thunderbolt 2 connectivity and can be expanded with Thunderbolt-ready expansion enclosures TX-500P and TX-800P. An Intel Haswell processor powers the storage solution.
Cloud storage may be the big buzzword of the moment, but what if you'd rather have your storage where you can see it? QNAP has one solution, in the shape of the TS-669 Pro TurboNAS: six-drives-worth of network-attached storage with streaming, remote access and data-redundancy on tap. Everything, in fact, the company thinks a home or small office might require. Is it worth the $1,199.99 sticker price, however? Read on for the full SlashGear review.
QNAP has unveiled a new storage device that is aimed at the business and enterprise user called the TS-559 II Turbo NAS. This device is a storage platform that will work with just about any platform including Windows, Mac, Linux, and Unix operating systems. It acts as a centralized backup point and allows for printer sharing, FTP download, and video surveillance recording.
QNAP has outed its newest range of Turbo NAS servers, the TS-x12 line-up, consisting of 1-, 2- and 4-bay models for a total of up to 12TB storage. The QNAP Turbo NAS TS-112, TS-212 and TS-412 each use a Marvell 1.2GHz processor and 256MB of RAM, and offer local and remote file and media access with remote iPhone and Android streaming using the QMobile app.
QNAP has a gob of different NAS storage devices in its line up aimed at every one from the home user to the small business and larger enterprise users. The company's line of storage offerings allow for easier backups of data on the network and offer devices with single and multiple drives. The company has added a new line of NAS devices for the home and small office user that are called the TS-x19P+ series.
QNAP has outed its latest network media player, the NMP-1000P, a compact STB that offers Full HD 1080p video, Dolby and DTS digital surround sound, optional NAS functionality and internet media streaming. Able to gobble up a 3.5-inch hard-drive in its internal bay - either for storing local content or acting as a backup drive for networked computers - the NMP-1000P uses Sigma Designs new 667MHz SMP8643 SoC video/audio decoder.
Network attached storage is an important way for businesses and users to back up their networked computers and content. QNAP has been in the NAS server market for a long time and we have seen their gear before with products like the TS-410 turbo NAS that was unveiled back in October. The company has unveiled two new NAS devices today called the TS-239 Pro II and the TS-439 Pro II NAS servers.
Networked media players are, if not quite ten-a-penny, then at least increasingly common these days, so it takes more than an ethernet port and an HDMI output to impress us. QNAP are hoping their NMP-1000 will do just that, however, thanks to its onboard 3.5-inch hard-drive (up to 2TB), Full HD 1080p output, YouTube and Flickr support, automatic NAS backup functionality and UPnP streaming.
