The QNAP TS-809 Pro Turbo NAS
NAS servers seem to be getting new feature sets with every firmware release, but the interface gets more user friendly with each hardware release. Here we see the simple layout. The power button is at the bottom left just above the USB port that has a very convenient copy function. Just plug in your USB device and hit the copy button and the data is transferred to the NAS.
The TS-809 Pro has a useful display at the top and a pair of buttons that allow some of the basic operating perimeters to be changed without the need for a workstation.
The cover for the TS-809 Pro is in a U shape and has a scratch resistant coating.
The back side of the NAS is designed very well also. Here we see the PSU is located at the top of the unit and this is where you plug the power cable in. Two Gigabit Ethernet ports are available. You can use the TS-809 Pro on two different domains or use the Failover feature as well as load-balancing.
Four USB ports are also on the TS-809 Pro. These are used to install printers, making the unit a versatile print server. Also, most battery backup units use USB to talk to the NAS for status updates and to turn the NAS off before battery power fails.
The other side of the NAS is like the first.
Rubber isolation feet keep the unit from transferring vibration to the desk.
With the side off we see that TS-809 Pro is more PC like than a typical NAS server is.
