The QNAP TS-419P Turbo NAS is the most economic four-drive storage solution for Prosumers and SOHO users who want a NAS with compelling features, solid performance, low power consumption and high reliability. The powerful four-drive system can let you build the RAID 0/1/5/6/5+spare, single and JBOD disk configurations.
The TS-419P Turbo NAS is not only an ideal storage server but also an all-in-1 application server. You can easily store and share the files to Windows PCs, Mac, and Linux/Unix over the network. The built-in server features include Web Server (with PHP & MySQL supported), FTP Server, P2P Download Station, Surveillance Station (with monitoring & recording for up to 4 IP cameras supported), iTunes music sharing server, UPnP DLNA server (built-in TwonkyMedia) for multimedia files sharing, Printer Server, etc. with great expandability that you can expand the storage capacity over the network by VDD function. Besides, to manage the NAS is extremely easy. The AJAX-based graphic user interface allows intuitive management of all the Turbo NAS features.
Incorporating a Marvell 1.2 GHz CPU and 512MB DDRII RAM, the power consumption of the TS-419P Turbo NAS in operation is only 26W which is much less than that of a PC. The TS-419P offers features more often found in much higher end NAS servers, including built-in iSCSI target service, policy-based unauthorized IP blocking, SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol), remote replication, two Gigabit LAN port, and 4 USB ports (the front USB port includes an auto-copy feature).
Built-in iSCSI Target Service The TS-419P can act as a NAS and iSCSI target server at the same time. It provides a cost-efficient iSCSI solution to set up an IP-SAN. You can make use of the built-in iSCSI target service to add up to 8 iSCSI devices. Different iSCSI Target LUNs (Logical Unit Number) can be defined as storage expansion or backup destination of the existing application servers, such as database servers and mail servers. Furthermore, the "Virtual Space Allocation" (Thin Provisioning) feature is provided which allows you to flexibly allocate the capacity of iSCSI LUN (Logical Unit Number). When the physical storage capacity of the volume is going to be full, you can easily expand the storage capacity by "Online RAID Capacity Expansion", or adjust/remove the current unused volume space according to the demands.
Virtual Disk Drive (VDD) The unique "Virtual Disk Drive" adds flexibility to expand the capacity of NAS. By using the built-in iSCSI initiator, the NAS can connect to other iSCSI targets on the network and turn them into virtual disks, which become multiple single volumes on the NAS. Up to 8 virtual disks can be stacked. The NAS serves as the storage stack chaining master. The user only needs to connect to this single entry (QNAP NAS) and is able to reach and use all the iSCSI target storages on the network.
Advanced RAID Management with Hot-swap Design The NAS offers advanced RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 5 + Spare, Single, and JBOD disk configurations. It also supports hot-swap design that a failed drive can be replaced by hot swapping without turning off the server. Besides, the best-in-class RAID on the NAS brings users a higher level of data security by allowing one more hard drive failure than other NAS of the same level.
Online RAID Capacity Expansion The storage capacity of a RAID configuration can be expanded by replacing the hard drives with larger ones. All the data will be kept and seamlessly moved to the newly installed hard drives. There is no need to turn off the server during the process.
Online RAID Level Migration You can upgrade the disk configuration to higher RAID level with the data retained. There is no need to turn off the server during the process.
