TS-239 Pro Turbo, QNAP’s Latest 2-Bay NAS Wonder
Ok we won’t hide it, we at Akihabara News are completely fond of QNAP NAS storage systems. Today with great pleasure we announce the arrival of another NAS from QNAP, the TS-239 Pro Turbo NAS.
With a bit fewer features than the previous QNAP NAS we tested before: QNAP TS-439 and TS-639 Pro Turbo Quick Review, the new TS-239 Pro Turbo is still an impressive little fellow. Powered by an Atom 1.6GHZ CPU, with 1GB of RAM, this 2-bay NAS still supports basic QNAP NAS functionality and even iSCSO… So if you’re serious about data backup and management but don’t need a fully loaded monster, the little TS-239 Pro Turbo is made for you.
QNAP TS-239 Pro is the new generation 2-bay model of the worldwide award-winning Turbo NAS Series designed to deliver high performance and reliable server features such as advanced RAID protection, built-in iSCSI target service, and AES 256-bit volume-based encryption for small business.
Powered by Intel 1.6 GHz CPU and 1GB DDRII memory, the TS-239 Pro is the 2-bay NAS with the best hardware specifications in the current market. The NAS comes with two Giga LAN ports which can be configured for network failover, load-balancing, and multi-IP setting. Advanced disk configurations such as RAID 0/ 1, JBOD, Online RAID Capacity Expansion and Online RAID Level Migration are supported.
The TS-239 Pro can serve as a NAS and an iSCSI target server. You can make use of the iSCSI target service to set up the NAS as a device for storage capacity expansion or a backup server of the existing servers on the local network. The “Virtual Space Allocation” (Thin Provisioning) feature is provided that you can flexibly allocate the capacity of iSCSI LUN (Logical Unit Number) at the beginning regardless of the physical volume capacity of the NAS.
To meet the demand for high security data protection of the business users, the TS-239 Pro supports AES 256-bit volume-based encryption. The encrypted disk volumes of the NAS must be unlocked by the encryption password to be accessed, which eliminates the fear of confidential data leakage if the hard drives or the NAS were stolen. Moreover, the TS-239 Pro supports file sharing across Linux, UNIX, Mac, and Windows. It provides numerous applications, e.g. file server, FTP server, printer server, web server (with phpMyAdmin, MySQL, SQLite, Joomla!). It is an ideal storage solution for your office network.
