TS-259 Pro+ houses up to two 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch SATA hard disk drives, incorporates Intel® Atom™ 1.8GHz dual core processor and 1GB memory, and is capable of delivering ultra high performance, reliability, and lower power consumption during intensive data transfers. The NAS is an efficient and powerful business storage center with advanced iSCSI services, cross-platform data sharing, and all-in-one server applications. With VMware® Ready™ and Citrix® Ready™ certification, and proven compatibility with Microsoft Hyper-V environment, the NAS is an ideal shared storage solution in the virtualized and clustered environment.
The Most Affordable and Flexible Virtualization Solution
TS-259 Pro+ is certified as compatible with VMware® vSphere4 (ESX 4.0 and above) and Citrix® XenServer virtualization platforms, and is also compliant with Windows 2008 Failover Cluster. The NAS can be utilized as the network shared storage of VMware, Citrix virtualization environments and Windows clustered servers. Comparing with traditional SAN (Storage Area Network), the NAS is a competitive alternative with much lower setup and maintenance costs in an IP SAN.
Feature-rich and Integrated Applications for Business
The NAS supports file sharing across Windows, Mac, Linux, and UNIX platforms. Versatile business applications such as file server, FTP server, printer server, web server, and Windows AD (Active Directory) support are provided. The dominant features, such as WebDAV, Share Folder Aggregation (also known as DFS), IPv6 and IPv4 dual-stack, Wake on LAN, schedule power on/ off, HDD S.M.A.R.T, comprehensive log systems, and policy-based unauthorized IP blocking are all included.
New iSCSI for Virtualization Deployments
Turbo NAS provides flexible and secure storage server deployment with the following enhanced iSCSI features:
•NAS + iSCSI storage solution
Turbo NAS can serve as a NAS (network-attached storage) for file sharing and an iSCSI storage concurrently.
•Flexible multiple LUNs management
The NAS supports multiple LUNs (Logical Unit Numbers) and iSCSI targets. The LUNs can be flexibly mapped to, unmapped from, and switched among different iSCSI targets.
•Secure IP SAN environment deployment
Designed with CHAP authentication and LUN masking, the advanced ACL (Access Control List) offers you the capability to block the access from unauthorized initiators.
•Designed for virtualized and clustered environments
Comparing with the high cost of Fibre Channel SAN, Turbo NAS is an affordable system that can be deployed as a storage center for virtualized and clustered server environments, such as VMware, Citrix and Microsoft Windows Failover Cluster.
Storage Expansion by Virtual Disk Drive (VDD)
The NAS supports flexible storage expansion by stacking other iSCSI targets on the network via its built-in iSCSI initiator. The connected iSCSI targets are turned into "virtual disk drives" of the NAS to provide more storage capacity.
Superior Performance and Energy-saving Design
The NAS delivers superior performance and high reliability for critical business applications. It is optimized to achieve low noise and low power consumption for environment protection.
Wake on LAN
Enable this option to power on Turbo NAS remotely by Wake on LAN.
HDD Stand-by Mode
Save power consumption by enabling this option to make HDD enter stand-by mode if there is no access within the specific period.
Scheduled Power On/Off
You can create schedules to automatically turn on, turn off, or restart the NAS. Up to 15 schedules can bet set.
