UPnP Media Server
The Turbo NAS is a perfect media storage center and works well with UPnP/DLNA compliant DMA. You can use the Turbo NAS and the DMP to play the digital image or video on your TV or listen to music or Internet radio without using any PC.
Music fans and Apple enthusiasts will be certainly rocked by the coolest music-sharing feature of TS-209! All your MP3 music can be collectively stored and streamed to Mac or Windows PCs. Just turn on the iTunes program and enjoy all the music around your home network.
Now you can share photos with your family and friends using the TS-209. By uploading your photos, the server automatically generates a web-based photo album with thumbnails and details, such as date, resolution, focal length, aperture and more. You can browse and share the digital photos in a convenient way!
The Turbo NAS serves as a continuous download machine without turning on your PC. The Turbo NAS supports download through BitTorrent, FTP, and HTTP. For BitTorrent downloading, brand-new BT Engine is embedded with the Turbo NAS. Users will enjoy the super high speed through TCP/UDP and encrypted BT download function. Meanwhile, DHT (Distributed Hash Tables) is also supported.
The basic purpose of File Server is to allow users to store and share files. Users are often concerned that their private data or confidential files would be accessed by others. TS-209 allows server manager to create user IDs and passwords and define the authority and quota for each user. Thus personal data stored on the TS-209 is well protected.
Having troubles with sending large files by e-mail due to the limited capacity? You can establish your own FTP server by using the TS-209. You can manage the access authority of the FTP server and share your files with your friends or customers easily in a few steps.
Data backup may sound time and effort-consuming for most users. Qnap’s Turbo Station now brings you the enterprise-class technology to make backup extremely simple and efficient! The most intelligent automatic backup software, NetBak Replicator, is provided for users to perform real-time synchronization or schedule backup from multiple PCs to TS-209.
RAID-1 Mirroring with Hot-swap Design
Imagine, hard drive crashes and you lose everything. What would you do to have it backed up? The TS-209 supports RAID 1 Mirroring for non-stop service and easy maintenance. When data crash occurs, the administrator can be alerted by e-mail alarm and LED indication. The hard disk drive can be replaced by hot swapping without turning off the server. The intelligent data rebuilding capability allows users to replace a failed drive by hot-swap. This enables automatic data rebuilding to the new drive without suffering from any system downtime.
Encrypted Remote Replication
Encrypted remote replication provides high level of data protection. Files can be backed up from the Turbo NAS to other QnAP NAS products in remote locations. Advanced options including data compression, block-level incremental backup, and data synchronization are supported to optimize the bandwidth and time for data backup.
Web Server with Built-in phpMyAdmin
With the built-in phpMyAdmin, Joomla!, MySQL and SQLite, SOHO and home users can easily set up their own web server. With the editable php.ini support, there is no need of going through all the hassles of setting up a web server. You can either develop programs by yourself or download a variety of open-sourced applications, such as online shops, forums, blogs and more.
You can share your printer device over the network by simply connecting a USB printer (max. 3 sets) to the Turbo NAS's USB port and enabling the printer sharing function.
