Features

TS-219 Turbo NAS is QNAP's next generation two-bay Turbo NAS with iSCSI, especially designed for small business and home users who are eager for an extremely large storage center to store, back up, share thousands of multimedia files or expand the capacity of their current storage device. Combining the fashionably shiny design, the TS-219 takes the lead in the current small business and home NAS market with the outstanding specifications and performance, powerful all-in-one server features, high stability, and high reliability.

Superior performance with abundant business features
Adopting Marvell 1.2 GHz CPU and large-sized 512MB DDRII RAM, the Turbo NAS maintains superior performance even when there is intensive access to the network services of the server simultaneously. The TS-219 also supports cross-platform service across Windows, Mac, Linux, and UNIX. Enhanced industry-leading features are also provided, e.g. built-in iSCSI target service, Online RAID Capacity Expansion, Online RAID Level Migration, unauthorized policy-based IP blocking, instant SMS alert notification, schedule power on/ off, and two IP cameras for network surveillance.

Maximize the enjoyment of your home multimedia center
The built-in UPnP/ DLNA media server (with TwonkyMedia enabled) of the Turbo NAS supports a wide range of DLNA media players such as Sony PS3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 gaming consoles and works well with NFS-supported High-Definition (HD) DMA for HD video streaming. By installing DLNA/ UPnP application on your iPhone or iPod touch, you can access the Turbo NAS on the local network and play the multimedia contents, e.g. videos, music, and photos on the server. In addition, the high-speed PC-less Download Station with the unique QGet utility enables you to manage the BT/ FTP/ HTTP download tasks remotely over the local network or the Internet. The TS-219 is the ideal multimedia and storage solutions to enhance your home entertainment experience.

Brand new user Interface available
 

Ultra-high Speed Performance

  • Client PC: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.34GHz CPU, 2GB RAM, NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller, Windows Vista 32-Bit SP1
  • Testing Method: Connect the TS-219 and PC to switch, upload/ download 3GB file, FTP program: FileZilla 3.1.5

Advanced RAID Management with Hot-swap Design
The Turbo NAS supports RAID 1 Mirroring for non-stop service and easy maintenance. When data crash occurs, the administrator can be alerted by e-mail alarm and LED indication. The hard disk drive can be replaced by hot swapping without turning off the server. The intelligent data rebuilding capability allows users to replace a failed drive by hot-swap. This enables automatic data rebuilding to the new drive without suffering from any system downtime.

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.

Virtual Disk Drive (VDD) adds flexibility to storage expansion along with ease of management
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.

Flexible Built-in iSCSI Target Service
With the built-in iSCSI target feature, the NAS can be an ideal solution for backup or storage expansion. Small business and SOHO users can easily create dedicated virtual drives (up to 8 iSCSI devices) on the NAS for their PCs or existing servers. The iSCSI drives on the NAS can be formatted as file system and used as local drives.

S.M.A.R.T & Advanced HDD Health Scanning (HHS)
The NAS supports Hard Disk Drive S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) for monitoring the hard drive status. Moreover, the NAS is embedded with HHS Technology which supports disk checking and bad blocks scanning.

UPS Support
The NAS supports the majority of USB UPS devices (usbhid-ups supported) which enables the users to store the data in time and avoid critical data loss when power outage occurs during data transfer.

The backup software, NetBak Replicator, is provided for the NAS users to perform real-time synchronization or schedule backup from multiple PCs to the NAS.
