QNAP TS-410E: New NAS with 2.5 GbE should work quietly and without a fan

Anyone who hasn’t just put their NAS in a storage room – if you have the opportunity there – will know it: So a NAS may not be exactly quiet. The hard disks make noises and, depending on the work rate, a fan doesn’t exactly run as quiet as a whisper. (Note: A member of our team has had a NAS in a closed office closet for years – with no problems from heat or anything.)

For those who are bothered by this, QNAP is releasing the TS-410E on the market. It relies on fanless cooling and can therefore also be operated in noise-sensitive environments – for example in the living room at home.

Inside the NAS there is an Intel Celeron J6412. The quad-core processor achieves a clock rate of up to 2.6 GHz. There is 8 GB of dual-channel RAM on hand. Four 2.5-inch SATA slots are available for SSDs. SSD caching can be flexibly configured to trade off IOPS performance against performance requirements. This is how you want to do justice to more demanding applications (transfer of large files, streaming and virtual machines).

And anything else? A hardware-accelerated AES-NI encryption is at work in the TS-378E. Two RJ45 ports with 2.5 GbE are available – the possibility of port trunking is given (up to 5 Gbit/s). QTS 5.0 runs on the NAS with various options for virtualization & Co. as well as applications (Plex server, etc.). There is also an HDMI output for direct 4K material.

TS-410E-8G: Intel Celeron J2022 Quad-Core 4-Thread Processor (burst up to 2.6 GHz), 8 GB RAM (not expandable), 4x 2.5″ SATA 6 Gbps SSD drive bays, 2x 2.5 GbE ports, 4x USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10-Gbps) ports, 1x 4K HDMI out
