Quality Network Appliance Provider, or QNAP for short have released a revolutionary NAS storage product called the TVS-871T  that is capable of transferring and storing data at astonishing speeds on up to 3 devices simultaneously, whilst also being expandable to up to 6 of these units. It is then able to hold a combined total of an incredible 448TB of data thanks to Thunderbolt 2 Daisy Chaining. With its exceptionally low price compared to other products already on the market you wont have to blow your budget to be able to transfer and utilise large files and video.

In addition the QNAP integrates all DAS, NAS and iSCSI storage and transfer devices to ensure the QNAP is compatible though El Capitan 10.11 is required.

As already briefly mentioned above the QNAP is extremely cost effective and we estimate to get the same triple functionality from alternatives options would be a heath robinson solution at three times the cost. The Qnap TVS-871T without Drives is £17.70 a week on a three year lease with HardSoft. You also get a full three years warranty and technical support from our in house Apple Certified tech team. You can add your choice of hard drives and SSD dtorage (unlike Promise) and can daisy chain up to six QNAPS’s together to create a combined storage of 448TB . Thats each box fully loaded with drives. The QNAP TVS-871T is available to lease from HardSoft with these extra storage options. Detailed PDF for the TVS-871T is available here

The QNAP TVS-871T makes the need for a SME to upgrade to a 10 GB/s Network a less daunting and expensive task as the QNAP is a brilliant cost effective alternative. The QNAP is essential for those who regularly have to upload and transfer incredibly large files such as video footage and or program files onto multiple storage devices and computers and allowing multiple users to collaborate in a way only those with 10GB/s network infrastructure could before.
