QNAP Expands Business Series with New 4-drive TS-459U-RP and TS-459U-SP Rack Mounted Turbo NAS Servers

POMONA, Calif. , March 8 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — QNAP Systems, Inc., a leading
manufacturer of world class NAS servers, NVR Video Surveillance Systems, and
Network-based Video Players today expanded their popular Business Series Turbo
NAS lineup with two new 1U rack-mounted, 4-drive models, the TS-459U-SP and
TS-459U-RP. These new models, with up to 8TB of storage (using 2TB hard
drives), have been certified as compatible with VMware's vSphere4 (ESX 4.0)
virtualization platform, ideal for departmental file sharing, storage, and
advanced server applications in the office environment. VMware's vSphere is
the industry's first cloud operating system that offers a way to reduce IT
costs and increase responsiveness. Shared networked storage is an essential
component of a cloud computing infrastructure. The TS-459U-RP and TS-459U-SP
incorporate the Intel(R) Atom(TM) D-510 1.66Ghz dual-core processor and
feature 1GB of DDRII RAM, delivering exceptional performance and high
reliability for multiple concurrent tasks and intensive data transfer with
lower power consumption. Businesses of all sizes are able to enjoy the
interoperability between VMware virtual machines and QNAP high performance
storage to take the advantages of VMware cloud computing environments.

“QNAP's commitment to delivering SMB, Corporate, and entry-level
Enterprise customers exactly what they need, and nothing they do not shine
through with the TS-459U-SP and TS-459U-RP models,” said Laurent Cheng ,
Product Manager of QNAP Systems, Inc. “These new Business Series models
provide businesses of all sizes a solid foundation for their network storage
needs and a host of business-critical applications.” Mr. Cheng added.

The new models are differentiated with the TS-459U-RP containing redundant
power supplies. Should one power supply fail, the other will continue to
supply the power for the entire system and alert the administrator via email
or SMS to the failure. The TS-459U-SP contains a single power supply, and can
be upgraded to the -RP configuration with installation of a second power
supply module, sold separately. Both models support RAID 0/1/5/5+ hot spare/6,
and JBOD, with online RAID capacity expansion, online RAID level migration and
RAID recovery. Both models also feature 256-bit AES volume level encryption
for maximum data security. The TS-459U-RP and TS-459U-SP models feature 5 USB
ports (1 front panel & 4 real panel) and 2 e-SATA ports for storage expansion
and printer sharing. Both models support advanced features including DOM
architecture with fail-safe dual OS, scheduled power on/off, Wake on LAN, and

The new models come pre-installed with version 3.2 of the QNAP NAS
management software which supports lots of class-leading new features such as
iSCSI service; supports SPC-3 Persistent Reservation for clustering in VMware
and Hyper-V clusters in Windows Server 2008. MPIO and MC/S are also supported.
As well as new DFS support (Shared Folder Aggregation), import of user-list,
the next-generation Internet Protocol, IPv6, has been incorporated for future
networking evolution. QNAP's Web File Manager 2 features an entirely
redesigned user interface and functionality for improved file sharing and
management. WebDAV is also available for users to collaboratively share,
access, and edit files over HTTP and HTTPS. Additionally, Apple Time Machine
backups are now supported.


The new TS-459U-RP and TS-459U-SP Business Series Turbo NAS servers are
available from March through QNAP global commercial distributors, resellers,
and retailers.
