Simple, Secure, Scalable, and Reliable Storage
The QNAP TS-470 is a high performance four-bay Network Attached Storage (NAS) designed for small- to medium businesses. It provides the complete backup, disaster recovery, and military-grade data security required for modern business, and a plethora of file sharing and management features for promoting productivity and cooperation. The QTS 4.0 is intuitive and functional, and the App Center provides various apps that fully unleash your NAS potential. Five USB ports and two eSATA ports are included for quick peripheral sharing and storage expansion.
The TS-470 delivers ultra-high performance achieving speeds of up to 450MBps read and up to 423MBps write*. It is powered by a Dual-Core Intel 2.6 GHz Processor and 2GB DDR3 RAM (expandable to 16GB with factory pre-configured options), and features four Gigabit LAN ports (two onboard LAN ports plus one dual-port GbE PCI-Express NIC) to maximize system bandwidth. The pre-installed dual-port GbE PCI-E NIC can be replaced with an optional 10GbE adapter to deliver lightning-fast data throughput for IOPS demanding applications. (*Tested in QNAP lab. Figures could vary by environment. Testing Environment: Client PC configurations: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU, 16GB DDR3 RAM, Windows 7 professional 64-bit, Dual-port Intel X520-SR2 10GbE Server Adapter, IOMeter sequential read and write. NAS configurations: Intel 510 SSDs, Intel X-520-DA2 + 802.3ad trunking mode, RAID 5.)
Seamless storage expansion with scale-up solution
The TS-470 supports online capacity expansion by connecting multiple QNAP RAID expansion enclosures to meet the needs of growing business data. With the QNAP scale-up solution, raw storage capacity can be expanded to hundreds of Terabytes gradually. It is especially useful for large data applications, such as data archiving, virtualization, TV broadcast storage, and surveillance video storage.
Intelligent Storage Manager
The TS-470 Storage Manager provides a secure and flexible way to manage volumes. This next-generation volume management offers powerful features such as storage pooling with multiple RAID group protection, thin provisioned volumes with Space Reclaim, block-level iSCSI LUN and online capacity expansion. The QTS Storage Manager neatly presents tools and options for managing system storage to simplify the process of NAS capacity expansion and QNAP RAID expansion enclosure management. The Storage Manager provides enhanced features to secure important business data, including RAID Hot Spare and Global Hot Spare drives, SMART data migration, Time-Limited Error Recovery & Error Recovery Control, and advanced RAID read error recovery technology. The SSD caching can greatly boost IOPS performance of volumes to increase operational efficiency, especially for high- transaction workloads, and allows the best of both cost and performance by combining SSDs with HDDs.
Cross-platform file sharing, centralized data storage
The TS-470 supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux/UNIX networks. Data, logs, and ISO images of CDs and DVDs can be centrally stored in the NAS and protected by an integrated antivirus solution. The Windows AD and LDAP services enable system administrators to configure user permissions by using existing Windows AD servers, LDAP servers, or NAS build-in LDAP services.
In an open network environment, business data may be exposed in a potential hack. The TS-470 provides numerous security options, such as encrypted access, IP blocking, and other protective features. IT administrators can also control the access rights of each user to different folders, preventing unauthorized access to important files. The TS-470 is validated with military-grade FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit encryption, preventing unauthorized users to access data even if the hard drives or entire system were stolen.
Business apps all in one place
The QTS 4.0 provides various applications to meet business needs, such as storage management, file sharing, virtualization applications, and more. All of the services and applications frequently used in business environments are organized on the desktop for quick access. The TS-470 has a built-in App Center that provides various install-on-demand apps developed by QNAP and third-party developers, including tools for backup/sync, business, content management, communications, download, entertainment, and much more. It is also a centralized location for managing and updating installed apps. In addition, QNAP’s development platform embraces the open-source spirit to enable developers to create their own apps, adding potentially limitless opportunities for the TS-470.
