Product Information

Key Features

  • Large Capacity Storage and File Sharing
  • Backup Center for Business
  • NAS, iSCSI/ IP-SAN Storage Combo Solution for Server Virtualization
  • iSCSI and Virtualization Deployment
  • Feature-rich Business Applications

Modern businesses and workgroups face the challenge of finding a robust storage solution that can scale with the exponential increase in digital content their organization creates. From shared documents, old archived files and large rich media files, through to enterprise databases and core applications data, this challenge will only become more acute. Deploying an appropriate IT environment with a reliable, affordable and expandable storage solution is business critical. The ability to securely store, share and back-up digital assets has become one of the most important tasks for an SMB IT administrator, choosing the right option will significantly enhance business productivity and crucially offer a reliable disaster recovery solution in an age when downtime of any nature impacts profitability.

The QNAP TS-420U Turbo NAS is an all-in-one rack mount network attached storage (NAS) server optimized for small and medium businesses looking for an affordable yet high performance network storage solution. The TS-420U can hold up to 4 hard drives and is designed to be easily installed in the server room and configured with up to 12TB of storage capacity. The TS-420U is an ideal solution for centralized data backup, cross-platform file sharing, iSCSI/IP-SAN storage combo solution and a number of business applications. Moreover, the TS-420U offers exceptionally low power consumption, reliable system operations and capacity expandability.

Besides, the intuitive MyCloudNAS service simplifies the process of publishing content residing on the TS-420U over the Internet and helps the IT administrator create private cloud storage in just a few simple steps. The mobile app QMobile provides users with an iOS® or Android mobile device with a convenient way to access the TS-420U on the go.

Large Capacity Storage and File Sharing

Cross-platform Sharing with Antivirus

The TS-420U supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows©, Mac©, Linux/UNIX networks. User accounts and shared folders can be created via the user-friendly web-based interface without IT expertise. The integrated antivirus solution for the TS-420U ensures business continuity by offering detection against the latest viruses, malware, worms, and Trojan horses.

Windows Active Directory (AD) and LDAP Directory Service

The Windows AD and LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) directory service features enable the IT administrator to retrieve user accounts from Windows AD or LDAP-based directory server to the TS-420U, reducing time and effort in account setup. Users can use the same login name and password to access the TS-420U. In addition, the TS-420U can also be configured as an LDAP server and allows devices with LDAP protocol enabled to be joined in the directory and share the same user accounts and groups.

Shared Folder Aggregation

Access the shared folders of other servers on Microsoft Networking through the "portal folder" on the TS-420U. This saves the time and effort in logging in multiple servers one by one.

ISO File Archiving and Sharing

The TS-420U supports mounting ISO images of CD and DVD discs as network shares for data archiving, storage, and sharing. This feature saves the space for storing the physical discs, reduces the risk of data loss caused by disc wearing and tearing, and enhances the efficiency of data sharing on business network.

Advanced Folder Permissions

Advanced folder permissions allow users to configure folder/subfolder access to the TS-420U. With this feature enabled, users can manage the folder permissions from Microsoft Windows or the web-based management interface of the TS-420U easily.
