QNAP launches the TR-004 hardware RAID storage expansion device
QNAP Systems has just unleashed the TR-004, a 4-bay hardware RAID storage expansion device that can be used to add external storage space to a list of supported QNAP NAS solutions, but it can also be employed to add hardware-based RAID storage to a PC or a NAS.
In addition to the few specs and features mentioned above, the QNAP TR-004 comes with the following highlights:
- individual, JBO, and RAID 0/1/5/10 storage configurations
- external RAID protection support
- compatible with devices that use the exFAT file system support (sadly, an exFAT driver license must be purchased to take advantage of this capability)
- one-touch copy button for instant file backup
- lockable hard-drive trays
- disk health monitoring
- Create Storage Pool support
- disk mode DIP switch for setting RAID
- compatible with Windows, macOS, and Linux computers
