Introduction

 

Ever since QNAP released their TS-509 Pro Turbo NAS, they have been sitting at the top of the mountain looking down. Thecus responded with the N7700 and was able to close the performance gap and feature set, but the TS-509 was still ahead of the game. Not looking to rest, QNAP has countered Thecus' latest offerings with their own newly improved line-up that is now capable of being limited by Ethernet. The new QNAP TS-809 Pro Turbo NAS is so fast that your Ethernet cable used to connect the NAS to your network is now the limiting factor.

 

QNAP also made great strides in user management, an area that can always be made more user friendly until we reach automatic setup based on what a user is thinking. Since reading a person's thoughts is still not possible, QNAP has come up with the next best solution. The new AJAX interface that QNAP released with the latest round of firmware updates is the most advanced NAS interface we have tested to date and today we will have a look at just how easy it is to setup QNAP NAS servers with it.

 

Of course, the new TS-809 Pro is full of bells and whistles. The list has been improved upon since we reviewed the TS-509 Pro. It isn't even fair to just call the TS-809 Pro a NAS server. Total Server, Everything-You-Will-Ever-Need Server, Life Server or The-Only-Server-You-Will-Ever-Need describes the system better than NAS Server.

 

It's not surprising that this total approach comes with a high cost, but at 1699.00 USD the TS-809 Pro Turbo NAS is much cheaper than I expected for a SMB / Enterprise product with so many features and this level of speed. Let's take a look and see what is under the hood.
