QNAP TS-870U-RP NAS Network Storage Server Review

QNAP TS-870U-RP Software Specifications

The QNAP TS-870U-RP Series is primarily designed for small and medium-sized businesses. However, I also contend that the modern home environment looks very similar to a small business, anyways. When you have to combine the latest high tech devices, the legacy hardware and applications that everyone still has hanging around, the need to grant granular access to multiple terabytes of data with varying sensitivity, unified communications, and peripheral sharing – it’s a daunting challenge. I also challenge you to tell me whether that last sentence refers to a small business or your own home network.

There are a great number of software features included with the TS-870U-RP that some users will never use, never see, and never even know they exist. You can be sure though, that every corporate sys/admin is looking through this list of software capabilities and checking off the required boxes for deploying a NAS in a secure, large-scale business environment.
