QNAP introduced a small 8-bay Intel Atom-based NAS, the SS-839 Pro Turbo - this system supports eight 2.5" HDDs or SSDs.
Targeted at business users who require a storage solution of high performance, stability, scalability, low noise and low power consumption, the SS-839 Pro adopts low power Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz CPU, disk on module (DOM) architecture, and 2GB DDRII memory. The total storage capacity of the NAS is up to 4TB. It also features 2 eSATA and 5 USB ports for storage expansion and external storage backup. With ultra silent and excellent energy-saving design, the power consumption of the NAS with 8 hard drives installed is about 34W, which is almost 60% less than general 8-bay, 3.5-inch NAS. Moreover, the SS-839 Pro is compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux, and UNIX operating systems. It offers abundant software features such as built-in iSCSI application (up to 8 iSCSI targets) with Thin Provisioning, Online RAID Capacity Expansion, Online RAID Level Migration, AES 256-bit volume-based encryption, Wake on LAN, automatic policy-based IP blocking, network share status report, instant SMS and email alert, BT download, Touch-N-Go RAID configuration by the LCD panel, scheduled power on and power off (max 15 schedules), 2 Giga LAN ports, 4 IP cameras for network surveillance, etc.
"The SS-839 Pro is the 8-bay variation of QNAP's previously announced SS-439 Pro Turbo NAS. It is also the smallest 8-bay NAS in the current market with up to 4TB storage capacity. The NAS features low operation noise and low power consumption. When running 8 hard drives, the SS-839 Pro consumes almost 60% less electricity than a general 8-bay, 3.5-inch SATA NAS. It is definitely an ideal storage solution that largely reduces the electricity expenses of the business users", says Celia Lee, Product Manager from QNAP.
The SS-839 Pro is a powerful server of diversified features, e.g. network server, FTP server, web server with built-in phpMyAdmin, Joomla, MySQL/ SQLite, editable php.ini, printer server (up to 3 printers), etc. The exclusive QPKG software expansion feature enables the users to add more software applications to the NAS server such as setting up their own mail server by XDove or web page or online communication system with the customers by WordPress. Moreover, the users can make use of the Surveillance Station (network surveillance) with maximum four IP-based cameras for office security monitoring.
