Editor review

QNAP TS-879 PRO enters the foray with 10GbE option with more enterprise and security features

QNAP TS-879U-RP - a totally new breed 8-bay rack mount NAS server that is built around the Intel i3-2120 processor platform. It’s Fast and Furious, packed with Features that will warm the cockles of any CTO’s heart. The TS-879U-RP has been touted as a replacement for the TS-809U-RP, that being true the TS-879U-RP swipes the floor with its older sibling and is a credible successor. It’s a welcome for disenchanted storage buyers to see systems in this class being designed on the Intel platform as it provides a certain level of stability that would have otherwise not been previously present when the market was first introduced to SMB NAS back in 2004.

PROS:

  • Blazing Fast
