QNAP Adds To Turbo NAS Line New NAS Cases From QNAP Offer Dedicated Processor, Eight HDD Bays, VMware certification
serious hardware. They're adding four new 'professional' performance NAS
devices, which QNAP promises aim for the 'ultra-high-end' market. All
four new NAS devices are compatible with VMware's ESX 4.0 virtualization
m, which is used in enterprise file sharing, storage and servers.
In case you weren't sick about reading about the mountains of new
netbooks that are coming with Intel's new Pine Trail processors, here's
a new one – QNAP has thrown the Intel Atom D510 into their Turbo
NAS devices. The Atom D510 is apart of the Pine Trail family – but
we've got yet to see it in any new computers as it's optimized for
nettops (thin client desktops, or netbooks + desktops).
The Turbo NAS uses its own dedicated processor for performance and
concurrent tasks. QNAP's new Business Series Turbo NAS servers really
mean business, QNAP's president said in a press release – and
when your NAS device comes with its own processor, they aren't joking
The two-bay TS-259 Pro goes for $599 while the impressive eight-bay
TS-859 Pro (featured above) goes for $1,499. QNAP will be showing off
the devices at CES, and they'll go on sale in mid-January.
