Now for the second unit: the TS-459 Pro+.
Here is how QNAP describes this product:
Modern business faces the challenge of dramatic growth of digital data, including documents, emails, applications, and so on. To deploy the IT environment with a reliable, affordable and expandable storage center to securely store, share, and back up the digital assets has become an important task for the server managers of the SMB and entry-level enterprise nowadays.
TS-459 Pro+ houses up to four 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch SATA hard disk drives, incorporates Intel® Atom™ 1.8GHz dual core processor and 1GB memory, and is capable of delivering ultra high performance, reliability, and lower power consumption during intensive data transfers. The NAS is an efficient and powerful business storage center with advanced iSCSI services, cross-platform data sharing, and all-in-one server applications. With VMware® Ready™ and Citrix® Ready™ certification, and proven compatibility with Microsoft Hyper-V environment, the NAS is an ideal shared storage solution in the virtualized and clustered environment.
This one offers a setup option that allows you to set up the RAID configuration without using a PC, entirely based on an LCD panel on the front. I’ll be setting this one up and reviewing it as well! Drop me a comment here if there is something in particular that you’d like me to test out.
