Multifunctional data storage servers that allow you to store huge amounts of data. Connect your storage server directly to your own PC or share it with your local area network, so anybody in your home/office can use it. You can even connect it to the internet and share your data securely with friends or colleagues at a remote office via a VPN connection or if you would wish to do so you could even share your data with the whole world via ftp (provided your server supports this).

The official marketing text of QNAP TS-470 NAS Tower Ethernet LAN Black as supplied by the manufacturer

QNAP TS-470, featuring the easy-to-use QTS operating system, is a secure, scalable, and reliable NAS solution designed for mission-critical business applications and fast growing data storage needs. The TS-470 delivers high performance with persistent throughput, providing a comprehensive storage solution that includes the following features:

- Up to 450MB/s read and 423MB/s write speed with optional 10GbE support
- Scale up to 36 hard drives with 216TB raw capacity with REXP-1600U-RP RAID expansion enclosures
- Complete backup, disaster recovery and data security management
- Supports VMware®, Citrix®, and Microsoft® Hyper-V® and advanced virtualization features

Ultra-high performance
The TS-470 delivers ultra-high performance achieving speeds of up to 450MB/s read and up to 423MB/s write. It is powered by a Dual-Core Intel® 2.6 GHz Processor and 2GB DDR3 RAM (expandable to 16GB with factory pre-configured options), and features 4 Gigabit LAN ports (two onboard LAN ports plus one dual-port GbE PCI-Express NIC) to maximize system bandwidth.

Seamless storage expansion with scale-up solution
The TS-470 supports online capacity expansion by connecting multiple QNAP RAID expansion enclosures to meet the needs of growing business data. With the QNAP scale-up solution, raw storage capacity can be expanded to hundreds of Terabytes gradually. It is especially useful for large data applications, such as data archiving, virtualization, TV broadcast storage, and surveillance video storage.

Intelligent Storage Manager
The TS-470 Storage Manager provides a secure and flexible way to manage volumes. This next-generation volume management offers powerful features such as storage pooling with multiple RAID group protection, thin provisioned volumes with Space Reclaim, block-level iSCSI LUN and online capacity expansion. The QTS Storage Manager neatly presents tools and options for managing system storage to simplify the process of NAS capacity expansion and QNAP RAID expansion enclosure management.

The Storage Manager provides enhanced features to secure important business data, including RAID Hot Spare and Global Hot Spare drives, SMART data migration, Time-Limited Error Recovery & Error Recovery Control, and advanced RAID read error recovery technology.

The SSD caching can greatly boost IOPS performance of volumes to increase operational efficiency, especially for high- transaction workloads, and allows the best of both cost and performance by combining SSDs with HDDs.

Qsirch – A smarter, faster way to search
Quickly and easily find documents, photos, videos, and music with Qsirch, QNAP’s new built-in NAS search application lets you find what you need by real-time, natural search. Simply type in as much as you know about what you are trying to find, including bits of the file name or even words/phrases in the document, and Qsirch will display a list of matches, complete with thumbnails, as you type. Qsirch even remembers your search history so you can quickly navigate to files you’ve previously searched for. Qsirch is a huge productivity boost – it greatly reduces the amount of time spent looking for files on the NAS so you can focus on other tasks.

A server is a system which that responds to requests across a computer network to provide, or help to provide, a network service. DCHP servers uses the DCHP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol), which is a standardized networking protocol used by servers on an IP network to allocate IP addresses to computers. The purpose of DHCP is to automate the IP address configuration of a computer without a network administrator. IP addresses are typically selected from a range of assigned IP addresses stored in a database on the server and issued to a computer which requests a new IP address. An IP address is assigned to a computer for a set interval, after which, the computer must renew the IP address or acquire a new one.

If we were writing this review three years ago, we would most likely be talking about another Marvell based appliance with substandard file performance, lacking a lot of features that we now take for granted with our NAS appliances. If we fast forward ju...
Bottom line As noted throughout our review, the QNAP TS-470 is certainly one of the most powerful NAS appliances we have tested. It certainly brings another option to the market for SMB users that want a storage solution that offers tremendous options and blazing pe...
With a price tag of just over £700 (around $1,180, AU$1,270) before taxes and without any disks, the QNAP TS-470 is a far from cheap four-bay NAS appliance, very much aimed at the small business rather than home user market. Even then it's expensive and f...

Bottom line It's hard to argue against the QNAP TS-470 as a fast and very functional small business NAS appliance with storage expansion and networking options more usually associated with enterprise products. Unfortunately these add further to the already high pric...
With a price tag of just over £700 (around $1,180, AU$1,270) before taxes and without any disks, the QNAP TS-470 is a far from cheap four-bay NAS appliance, very much aimed at the small business rather than home user market. Even then it's expensive and f...

Bottom line We liked The TS-470 is an impressive desktop NAS with an enviable build quality that inspires confidence in the technology contained within. Performance is well up to expectations and can be further enhanced either by applying a choice of port trunking op...
QNAP's Turbo NAS TS-470 is the company's most ambitious NAS to date. The device's hardware specs broke the record for write speed among NASes we've tested, and it's up there with the best we've tested in terms of reads. Excellent RAID fault tolerance in s...

Bottom line The TS-470 is the best NAS we've seen from QNAP. The hardware definitely delivers worthy small-business class performance – yet there are still software issues that remain from previous Turbo NAS devices we've tested, including a clumsy firmware update p...
Over the last few years I've seen some pretty cool NAS boxes, some with exceptional flexibility in terms of what services and features they offer. I was actually slightly flummoxed by the QNAP TS-470, though, a device that takes the embedded NAS box conce...
For most people, if I were to ask them who their most admired person is, chances are they will reply with a political leader of some sort. What makes a political or world leader great? Obviously, the skill and character of the person is crucial, but it is...
Bottom line As this final thoughts page for my QNAP NAS reviews gets longer and longer every review (Admittedly, I do borrow paragraphs from my past articles, and it kind of accumulates since I almost always add to it), it is nice to approach the conclusion with a di...
The Qnap TS-470 is as expensive as 4-bay NAS appliances come. The high-end price pays for high-end features, however, and Qnap justifies the expense with quad Gigabit ports, support for 10GbE≈upgrades, SSD read caching and immense capacity expansion poten...
Bottom line It's expensive, but this fast 4-bay NAS appliance is brimming with features and expansion potential...
Armed with a Sandy Bridge-based Celeron CPU, QNAP's TS-470 handles the traffic from four gigabit Ethernet connections. Or, with the addition of a 10 GbE upgrade card, it can be made to push well over 1 GB/s, providing you use the right storage. Most sma...
Bottom line QNAP's TS-470 is a solid performer with plenty of features. But the main reason you'd want to spend the money on it would probably be its four gigabit Ethernet ports and expandability to 10 Gb Ethernet somewhere down the road. Naturally, you're not go...
The design of the QNAP TS-470 looks exactly like that of the other QNAP NAS devices we've tested, but looks can be deceiving. Inside, a 2.6 GHz processor is churning away, and with no less than four gigabit ethernet ports this is a NAS powerhouse. We...
Bottom line A new generation of NAS devices calls for new benchmarks, and this review of the QNAP TS-470 is the first step. We replaced the traditional Western Digital Blue 500 GB disks by Seagate NAS 4 TB disks and will soon add our iSCSI benchmarks to paint a com...
