Overview:

When expanding data storage capacity, deploying multiple servers can lead to complexity in management and dramatically increased costs. QNAP TX-500P expansion enclosure provides a flexible expansion alternative designed with easy setup in mind for scaling up Thunderbolt NAS storage space via high-speed Thunderbolt 2 (20Gbps) cables. The TX-500P provides an additional 5 hard drives providing up to 40 TB* expanded capacity for the Thunderbolt NAS, making it ideal for data backup, 4K digital media collection and video surveillance storage with blazing-fast data transmission performance.

Highlights:

  • Easily add additional drive capacity to a Thunderbolt NAS
  • Missing mode protection
  • Powerful QTS Storage Manager
  • Efficient backup solution for Thunderbolt NAS
  • Smart power design
  • Excellent hardware design

Easily add additional drive capacity to a Turbo NAS

Simply connect the TX-500P to a Thunderbolt NAS via Thunderbolt 2 cables and power it on. The Thunderbolt NAS will automatically detect the hard drives in the TX-500P as newly-installed local drives. The Thunderbolt NAS capacity can then be seamlessly expanded as a large volume by using the powerful QTS Storage Manager.

Missing mode protection

If your TX-500P is accidentally disconnected, the Thunderbolt NAS enters missing mode and blocks I/O access to protect the stored data. The system can then recover from the missing mode to the normal state with data staying intact.

Missing mode protection

Powerful QTS Storage Manager

The QTS Storage Manager neatly presents tools and options for managing system storage with a modern & intuitive graphical user interface, which greatly simplifies the process of NAS capacity expansion and TX-500P management. IT administrators can easily monitor the health status of TX-500P and the disks within it. When multiple expansion enclosures are connected, the Locate Disk and Locate Enclosure functions assist you in quick maintenance.

Efficient backup solution for Thunderbolt NAS

In addition to expanding an existing volume, you can use the TX-500P as a flexible external storage to perform speedy and secure backup tasks for the Thunderbolt NAS. The QNAP RTRR (Real-Time Remote Replication) or rsync service lets IT administrators back up Thunderbolt NAS data to the TX-500P on a real time or scheduled basis.

Flexible drive selection

The TX-500P offers high flexibility in hard drive selection. IT administrators can choose low-cost but high-capacity SATA HDDs for large data archiving, or high-speed and high-stability SSDs for I/O intensive operations.

Flexible drive selection

Excellent hardware design

The TX-500P includes a full 350W internal PSU to provide ample power even under sustained full load. The well-ventilated chassis and smart fan helps to provide efficient cooling for better stability and reliability, with the fan enabling efficient heat removal even when all 8 drives are under full operation simultaneously.
