QNAP TVS-871 NAS Stores Terabytes of Data Safely

September 2, 2015

We’ve been using a NAS (Network Attached Storage) drive in our office for quite a few years. It is a great backup device since any single drive can completely fail and there will be no data loss. Just replace the bad drive and the data will be rebuilt.

If you want something with more storage space and ways for two drives to fail without data loss, then look no further than the QNAP TVS-871 shown below.
It is not the least expensive solution for NAS, but with a powerful computer and eight drive bays, it allows you to store a large amount of data quickly and safely. The standard version supports networking speed up to 1GB Ethernet, but it can be upgraded to 10GB Ethernet for those who have the need for the highest speeds.

The total capacity depends on what hard drives you use to popular the eight bays and the type of configuration you use. If you choose 4TB drives, that gives a total of 32TB of space. Running the NAS in RAID 6 means that any two drives can fail and gives you 24TB of usable storage. That’s a bunch!

If speed is most important, use SSD drives to popular the QNAP TVS-871 and it will be lightning fast. Of course it will also lead to a much higher cost today. This may not be the best choice for a small home office, but it is an excellent choice for a small office that needs to safely store a large amount of data. Load GoodSync on each computer and data can be backed up automatically on whatever schedule you like.
