QNAP Systems, Inc. today announces the first 2-bay network-attached storage (NAS) which supports both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch SATA hard drives - TS-219P Turbo NAS. Dedicated to home and SOHO users, the TS-219P is an advanced version of the previously released TS-219. Powering Marvell 1.2GHz high performance processor and 512 MB DDRII memory, the NAS comes with 3 USB ports and 2 eSATA ports to deliver the best storage expansion capability compared with other 2-bay NAS in the market. The TS-219P supports two hot-swappable 2.5" or 3.5" SATA hard drives with maximum 4TB storage capacity. The device can be accessed across Windows, Mac, Linux, and UNIX. It is a highly reliable and powerful NAS with abundant business-class features, such as built-in iSCSI target service (max 8 iSCSI devices) with Thin Provisioning, Online RAID Capacity Expansion, Online RAID Level Migration, automatic policy-based IP blocking, hard drive status report, instant SMS and email alert, built-in TwonkyMedia UPnP/ DLNA media server, BT and eMule download, schedule power on and power off, one Giga LAN port, and 2 IP cameras for network surveillance. "The TS-219P Turbo NAS is the advanced version of the previously announced TS-219 from QNAP. The TS-219P features iSCSI target service and is released with the latest Turbo NAS firmware version 3.0 to bring the best user experience with the CoverFlow-like AJAX-based user interface," says Laurent Cheng, Product Manager from QNAP. "Also, the NAS supports both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch SATA hard drives. By installing the low power and low vibration 2.5-inch hard drives, the power consumption of the NAS is largely reduced. It is a silent and energy-saving storage solution for home and SOHO users." The TS-219P supports diversified features, e.g. built-in TwonkyMedia to support DLNA streaming to play the multimedia files such as High-Definition (HD) movies on TV. The Mac users can also install DLNA/ UPnP on their iPhone or iPod Touch to play the video, music, or digital photos from the Turbo NAS. Moreover, the unique QPKG software expansion feature is provided to allow the users to install powerful add-on software on the NAS, e.g. XDove mail server or WordPress for creating interactive websites or personal blogs. The NAS also supports Surveillance Station (network surveillance) with maximum two IP cameras for home or office security monitoring.
