Following up on the firm's TS-109, the all new two-bay, hot-swappable TS-209 NAS server ratchets things up a notch for SMB and SOHO. QNAP's latest Pro Turbo Station hopes to catch the eye of the almighty suits, and packs a fairly potent 500MHz processor, gigabit Ethernet port, and 128MB of DDR2 RAM within to "significantly boost file sharing speed." Moreover, ingrained server features such as automatic syncing / backup, SSH remote login, and cross-platform sharing for Windows, Mac, Linux, and UNIX machines are included, and the device can be equipped with up to 2TB of storage in a RAID 1 mirroring array. Look for this one to land next month for a currently undisclosed price.
