QNAP TS-809 Pro Turbo NASJun 23rd, 2009 | By Simon
Manufacturer: QNAP System Inc.
Quality Network Appliance Provider defines QNAP’s mission statement and they’ve lived up to those standards by offering what they believe to be the best Network Attached Storage (NAS) and Network Video Recorder (NVR) devices. They have well over fifty products in these two categories; some companies aren’t even able to claim they have a total of fifty products let alone in two categories. What’s more surprising is that QNAP has only been around since 2004, making it probably one of the fastest growing and most respected network appliance providers.
Hard drive capacity has ballooned these past few years and today we have 1.5TB drives, a size most of us probably thought was unrealistic a few years ago. It’s easy to fill a hard drive and need a bigger one. I myself have over 5TB of space at home and it only cost a few hundred bucks. It’s not uncommon to see someone with four or five hard drives, but what do you do when you run out of SATA drives on your machine or need access to those files from any computer on the network? The answer is QNAP’s TS-809 Pro Turbo NAS. The TS-809 Pro Turbo NAS is a modified computer optimized for storage and storage oriented function. They may double as printer servers but primarily serve as data transfer devices from an internal collection of drives to any user with permission on the network.
