SS-839 Pro Turbo NAS ships

QNAP Systems has released the newest addition to its line of storage servers, the SS-839 Pro Turbo NAS. QNAP believes this is the world's smallest eight-bay, Intel Atom-based network attached storage (NAS) unit utilizing 2.5-inch hard drives. The SS-839 Pro features disk-on-module architecture, an Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz CPU, 2GB of DDR2 memory, and a total storage capacity of 4TB. The unit also offers two eSATA connections and five USB ports that can be used to attach the device to other storage servers and backups. The device is claimed to be energy efficient, with the eight-drive system operating on approximately 34 watts.

The SS-839 Pro Turbo NAS includes a QPKG software-expansion feature that enables users to upload additional software applications, such as XDove mail servers and online communication systems. The unit is multifunctional, working as a network server, FTP server, printer server, network surveillance server, or a web server.

The device offers software features such as a built-in iSCSI application with Thin Provisioning, online RAID capacity expansion and level migration, AES 256-bit encryption, and automatic power-on and power-off capabilities. Configuration settings enable automatic blocking of IPs, based on a user's preferences, while network status reports can be forwarded via SMS or e-mail notifications.

The SS-839 Pro Turbo NAS is compatible with Mac, Windows, Linux, and UNIX operating systems. Interested customers should contact a sales representative through the QNAP Systems website.
