QNAP Systems, Inc. (QNAP) today launched the TR-002, a 2-bay hardware RAID expansion enclosure that can be utilized as a NAS storage expansion solution, and also as hardware RAID storage for Windows/macOS/Linux computers and NAS. The TR-002 connects to a PC/NAS via USB 3.1 Gen.2 Type-C and provides a dependable storage solution for various user requirements.

The TR-002 supports individual, JBOD and RAID 0/1 storage configurations. QNAP NAS users can use the TR-002 with their NAS to set RAID parameters and create a storage pool by using the "Storage and Snapshots" app within QTS. Alternatively, the TR-002 can be used as an external storage device for the NAS. Windows, macOS and Linux users with limited storage upgrade options can also use the TR-002 as an expansion unit, and a dedicated QNAP External RAID Manager utility (for Windows and macOS) can help them view disk health, change RAID configurations, check logs, and update the firmware of the TR-002.



"QNAP's first QNAP hardware RAID storage expansion enclosure (the TR-004) has received wide acclaim since its launch. QNAP now introduces a 2-bay version, the TR-002, that comes with UBS 3.1 Gen. 2 connectivity, allowing NAS and PC users to take the advantage of TR-002's high-speed data transfer with RAID protection," said Jason Hsu, Product Manager of QNAP.

A DIP switch on the rear of the TR-002 can switch the disk configuration. There are also status indicators, a one touch copy button and an eject button to make operations more intuitive.

Availability
The TR-002 RAID Expansion Enclosure for NAS and PC is now available.
