QNAP unveils low cost 4-drive turbo NAS server

QNAP expanded their Turbo NAS lineup with the addition of the TS-410 desktop NAS server which features 4 hot-swappable SATA hard drives with up to 8TB of total capacity (with 2TB drives) and supports 2.5″ or 3.5″ hard drives.

The TS-410 features a Marvell 800MHz CPU and 256MB DDRII memory which provides sustained high performance with low power consumption. It 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-410 also supports iSCSI Target service with Thin Provisioning and dual Gigabit LAN ports, features generally found on much higher end NAS servers. The NAS comes with 4 USB ports (1 front, 3 back panel) and 2 e-SATA ports for expanding the storage capacity or backing up.

The device is fully compatible with Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and UNIX networks and 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. The TS-410 can perform centralized backups of all computers attached to 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, SNMP support, and bitmap support for faster rebuilding of RAID volume after a crash or adding/removing a drive.
