Removable motherboard drawer for easy maintenance

The motherboard itself can be removed and replaced without needing to remove the heavy TS-EC2480U from the rack cabinet, making it especially useful in maintaining the TS-EC2480U in data centers with multiple rack cabinets.

  • Note: Power-off is necessary before removing the motherboard drawer. It is not hot-pluggable.

The TS-EC2480U offers four inbuilt Gigabit Ethernet ports and supports 10 Gigabit high speed network by installing 10GbE network adapter. The 10GbE-ready TS-EC2480U delivers lightening data throughput. Coupled with the support for large storage capacity, the TS-EC2480U is perfect for data centers to storage big data and excel in fast data transmission, and for editing large size videos on-the-fly without transferring the videos between the TS-EC2480U and desktop computers.

Powerful QNAP flexible volume

QNAP flexible volume provides a more secure and flexible way to store the NAS data. This next generation volume offers powerful features such as storage pooling with multiple RAID group protection, thin provisioned volume with space reclaim, block-level iSCSI LUN, and online capacity expansion. The QTS Storage Manager neatly presents tools and options for managing system storage which simplifies the process of NAS capacity expansion and QNAP RAID expansion enclosure management.

Cross-platform file sharing, centralized data storage

The TS-EC2480U supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows, Mac, Linux/UNIX networks. Data, logs and ISO image of CDs and DVDs can be centralized store in the NAS and protected by integrated antivirus solution. The Windows AD and LDAP services enable system administrators to configure user permissions by using existing Windows AD server, LDAP server or NAS build-in LDAP service.

Disaster recovery solutions brings peace of mind

The TS-EC2480U offers various data recovery options. RTRR (Real-Time Remote Replication) supports real time or scheduled data backup to a remote Turbo NAS or FTP server and synchronizes files to a remote folder from a local folder with better backup efficiency and reduced backup time. The TS-EC2480U also supports rsync protocol to back up data to another remote server on scheduling basis. Besides, data can be backed up to cloud storage, such as Amazon® S3, Amazon Glacier, Microsoft® Azure, ElephantDrive®, Symform®, Dropbox® and Google Cloud Storage, and restored to the TS-EC2480U anytime.

Am I eligible for finance?

The short answer is, you probably are! Our credit provider carries out credit checks and has a few requirements for offering finance but please make sure you meet these simple requirements

  • Your order is £99 or more
  • You are 18 years or older
  • You are a UK resident, and have been for more than 3 years

What if I am declined for finance?

When you're applying for finance you always need to remember that there is a possibility you will be declined. This can often be caused by one of a number of reasons, but usually it will be caused by a negative credit score or a default on an existing loan. We've done our best to make it as easy as possible for our customers that aren't successful in applying to continue their order and pay by Credit Card, Debit Card, PayPal Wallet or Bank Transfer - it really is as simple as clicking "complete my order using a different method".
