Product information: TS-470 4 Bay Tower Network Attached Storage Ideal for Home Office.
QNAP TS-470, featuring the easy-to-use QTS 4.0 operating system, is a secure, scalable, and reliable NAS solution designed for mission-critical business applications and fast growing data storage needs. The TS-470 delivers high performance with persistent throughput, providing a comprehensive storage solution that includes the following features:
- Up to 450MB/s read and 423MB/s write speed with optional 10GbE support
- Scale up to 36 hard drives with 180TB raw capacity with REXP-1600U-RP RAID expansion enclosures
- Complete backup, disaster recovery and data security management
- Supports VMware®, Citrix®, and Microsoft® Hyper-V® and advanced virtualization features
The TS-470 delivers ultra-high performance achieving speeds of up to 450MB/s read and up to 423MB/s write*. It is powered by a Dual-Core Intel® 2.6 GHz Processor and 2GB DDR3 RAM (expandable to 16GB with factory pre-configured options), and features 4 Gigabit LAN ports (two onboard LAN ports plus one dual-port GbE PCI-Express NIC) to maximize system bandwidth.
Flexible 10GbE network expansion
The pre-installed dual-port GbE PCI-E NIC can be replaced with an optional 10GbE adapter to deliver lightning-fast data throughput for IOPS demanding applications.
Seamless storage expansion with scale-up solution
The TS-470 supports online capacity expansion by connecting multiple QNAP RAID expansion enclosures to meet the needs of growing business data. With the QNAP scale-up solution, raw storage capacity can be expanded to hundreds of Terabytes gradually. It is especially useful for large data applications, such as data archiving, virtualization, TV broadcast storage, and surveillance video storage.
Intelligent Storage Manager
The TS-470 Storage Manager provides a secure and flexible way to manage volumes. This next-generation volume management offers powerful features such as storage pooling with multiple RAID group protection, thin provisioned volumes with Space Reclaim, block-level iSCSI LUN and online capacity expansion. The QTS Storage Manager neatly presents tools and options for managing system storage to simplify the process of NAS capacity expansion and QNAP RAID expansion enclosure management.
The Storage Manager provides enhanced features to secure important business data, including RAID Hot Spare and Global Hot Spare drives, SMART data migration, Time-Limited Error Recovery & Error Recovery Control, and advanced RAID read error recovery technology.
The SSD caching can greatly boost IOPS performance of volumes to increase operational efficiency, especially for high- transaction workloads, and allows the best of both cost and performance by combining SSDs with HDDs.
Cross-platform file sharing, centralized data storage
The TS-470 supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows, Mac and Linux/UNIX networks. Data, logs and ISO image of CDs and DVDs can be centrally stored in the NAS and protected by an integrated antivirus solution. The Windows AD and LDAP services enable system administrators to configure user permissions by using existing Windows AD servers, LDAP servers or NAS build-in LDAP services.
Well-rounded backup solutions to secure data
QNAP Netbak Replicator supports real-time and scheduled data backup on Windows including Outlook email archiving. Apple Time Machine is also supported to provide Mac OS X users with an effortless solution to back up data to the TS-470. A wide range of third-party backup software such as Acronis True Image and Symantec Backup Exec are also supported.
Disaster recovery solutions bring peace of mind
The TS-470 offers various data recovery options. RTRR (Real-Time Remote Replication) supports real time or scheduled data backup to remote Turbo NAS or FTP servers and synchronizes files to remote folders from local folders with better backup efficiency and reduced backup time. The TS-470 also supports rsync protocol to back up data to remote servers on a scheduled basis. Data can also be backed up to and restored from a range of cloud storage services, including Amazon® S3, ElephantDrive®, Symform®, Dropbox® and Google® Drive.
In an open network environment, business data may be exposed in a potential hack. The TS-470 provides numerous security options, such as encrypted access, IP blocking, and other protective features. IT administrators can also control the access rights of each user to different folders, preventing unauthorized access to important files. The TS-470 is validated with military-grade FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit encryption, preventing unauthorized users to access data even if the hard drives or entire system were stolen.
