Jeden Tag erstellen und sammeln wir Daten - mal eben schnell ein Foto mit dem Smartphone gemacht, ein Formular als PDF auf dem Notebook abgespeichert oder ein Bild nachbearbeitet. Doch alle Daten liegen auf verschiedenen Geräten - es fehlt ein zentraler Zugang. Ein Netzwerkspeicher (NAS) wie das QNAP TS-531P-8G NAS Rack 5-Bay ist hier eine optimale Lösung - er stellt in Ihrem Heimnetzwerk Daten für alle angeschlossenen Geräte zur Verfügung.

Das QNAP TS-531P-8G NAS Rack 5-Bay wird ohne Festplatten geliefert. Sie können sich Ihre Wunschfestplatten separat bestellen und dabei z.B. zwischen schnellen oder besonders stromsparenden und leisen Typen wählen - so wie Sie es benötigen. Möchten Sie eine HDD austauschen oder zusätzlich einbauen müssen Sie Modelle im
Formfaktor 2.5" / 3.5" verwenden. Insgesamt können im QNAP TS-531P-8G NAS Rack 5-Bay bis zu 5 Festplatten eingebaut werden. Die HDDs werden über SATA3 mit dem NAS verbunden. Der Ein- und Ausbau von HDDs ist im laufenden Betrieb möglich da das NAS HotSwap-Fähig ist. So sparen Sie Zeit wenn die Festplatten erweitert oder im Falle eines Defektes ausgetauscht werden müssen.

Dank der verbauten Speichercontroller lässt sich der Speicherplatz flexibel verwalten.
  • Die Festplatten des QNAP TS-531P-8G NAS Rack 5-Bay können mittels JBOD organisiert werden und stellen allen angeschlossenen Geräte die volle Festplattenkapazität zur Verfügung, egal ob Windows, Linux oder Mac OS.
  • Mittels RAID 0 (Striping) kann das QNAP TS-531P-8G NAS Rack 5-Bay die Arbeitsgeschwindigkeit erhöhen. Das gewonnene Leistungsplus ist jedoch gerade für HD-Streaming interessant.
  • Der optionale RAID 1 Modus (Mirroring) bietet Ihren Daten besonderen Schutz - 50% des Speichers können frei verwendet werden, die anderen 50% sorgen für permanente Backups. Sollte eine HDD des QNAP TS-531P-8G NAS Rack 5-Bay ausfallen verlieren sie dennoch keine Daten.
  • Dank RAID 5-Modus verarbeitet das QNAP TS-531P-8G NAS Rack 5-Bay Daten nicht nur besonders schnell, es sichert Sie gleichzeitig. Da 50% des Speichers permanent gesichert werden kann selbst der Defekt einer HDD ohne Datenverlust hingenommen werden. Dafür müssen mindestens 3 HDDs verbaut sein.
  • Mit dem hochwertigen RAID 10-Modus bietet das QNAP TS-531P-8G NAS Rack 5-Bay höchste Datensicherheit und Geschwindigkeit. Vorraussetzung sind mindestens 4 verbaute Festplatten. Die Hälfte der Kapazität wird für BackUps verwendet und bietet eine besonders hohe Ausfallsicherheit.

Durch 4x GB-LAN GB-LAN Anschlüsse verfügt das QNAP TS-531P-8G NAS Rack 5-Bay über eine besonders hohe Transferrate und liefert so deutlich schnellere Datentransfers. Durch den DLNA-Standard können zertifizierte Geräte Medien wie Musik und Filme auf dem Netzwerkspeicher automatisch finden und abspielen.
Über die 3 USB3.0-Anschlüsse lassen sich USB-Sticks oder externe Festplatten mit USB3.0 direkt an das NAS anschließen. Große Dateien können so schnell bereit gestellt werden ohne auf das NAS kopiert zu werden.
Für die Rechenleistung des QNAP TS-531P-8G NAS Rack 5-Bay ist ein Prozessor mit 1.40 GHz Takt zuständig. Dank der 4 Rechenkerne (Quad Core) bietet das QNAP TS-531P-8G NAS Rack 5-Bay höchste Leistung im professionellen Umfeld. Neben dem Prozessor sorgen 8 GB RAM für die notwendige Leistung.
Dank dem integriertem Druckerserver können Sie einen Drucker direkt an das QNAP TS-531P-8G NAS Rack 5-Bay anschließen und anschließend allen anderen Netzwerknutzern zur Verfügung stellen. So können Sie z.B. vom Notebook aus drucken, obwohl der Drucker in einem anderen Raum steht.
Der integrierte FTP-Server ermöglicht Ihnen professionelles Datenhosting. So können Sie auch auf Ihre Dateien zugreifen, wenn Sie nicht daheim sind. Dafür muss das QNAP TS-531P-8G NAS Rack 5-Bay lediglich an das Internet angeschlossen und konfiguriert sein.
