2010 was a big year for QNAP and the hits just keep on coming. At Computex we learned about new software developments that allow their NAS servers to be controlled by smart phones and iPads as well as new software that would increase the performance significantly. On top of the software updates, QNAP has partnered with Intel to use the new Intel dual core Atom processors in their latest round of NAS servers. These processors allow the NAS to consume less energy while delivering the highest transfer performance we've seen to date.
To think of a NAS server as a business only product these days is ignorant. With everything digital now playing a larger role in our lives, most families can easily benefit from a full on NAS server. Connectivity is the key and you simply can't get this level of connectivity from a home server without a large amount of time consuming customization. Tine also plays a role in our digital lives; no one has enough of it and when something is in low supply a dollar figure can be assigned to it. As the supply dwindles the figure is increased. These days I would pay for time, even if charged by the minute. My personal NAS server saves me time and thus is an investment that can be recovered. I hope you are in a position to consider your time valuable as well.
Today we are looking at the latest generation NAS server from QNAP. The new TS-659 Pro+ ships standard with many hardware improvements over the non-plus models. The first is a new Intel dual core Atom processor and memory configuration. Let's dive right into the hardware specs and I will get you up to speed.
