As the data value and volume of business data  continue to rise, corporations need high-performance  storage solutions which are secure, reliable, and  easy to manage. The QNAP TS-879 Pro, which serves as  both IP-SAN (iSCSI) and NAS, can be easily utilized  in different business and enterprise applications  such as backup center, disaster recovery, file  sharing, virtualization, and video editing storage.

  • NAS, iSCSI, IP-SAN storage solution
  • VMware, Citrix and Hyper-V ready
  • High performance, secure, reliable, and  simple
  • 10 GbE ready reaching over 1,000 MB/s and  100,000 IOPS
  • Multi-core processor, DDR3, SATA 6Gb/s, and  USB 3.0


Data might seem insecure being open in a network,  but the QNAP TS-879 Pro offers a variety of security  options such as encrypted access, IP filtering,  policy-based automatic IP blocking, and more. In  addition, full control of the NAS is offered down to  the user and folder access rights to determine who  can access the NAS and what can or cannot be  accessed. The TS-879 Pro is packed with security  features to stop all unauthorized data access such  as AES-256 volume-based encryption. The AES-256  volume-based encryption prevents sensitive data from  unauthorized access and data-breach even if the hard  drives or the device is stolen.


The TS-879 Pro is reliable with built-in safety  precautions to safeguard all data from any  unforeseen problems. With multiple built-in features  to guarantee no interruptions to the work flow of a  business, the TS-879 Pro is an efficient asset. The  advanced RAID configurations and hot-swap  capabilities are included to give RAID performance,  protection and reduced rebuilding time. Moreover,  the dual OS embedded on the DOM architecture ensures  the system will boot up. If one of the two operating  systems fails, the healthy operating system will  boot up and operate normally while repairing the  failed operating system. The dual Gigabit LAN ports  can also be configured for failover which allows the  NAS server to sustain the failure of one network  port and still provide continuous services.


Setting up local or remote access with the TS-879  Pro is painless and does not require any IT skills.  All setup processes have been simplified so that  most of the process is either automatic or can be  completed by an installation wizard. The  user-friendly web GUI allows administrators to  easily manage the NAS so there is no need for an  extensive knowledge of complex commands. Simple  management tools such as instant SMS/Email alert,  the hard drive S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis  and Reporting Technology) feature, and system  resource monitor are provided to keep administrators  up-to-date on their NAS at all times.

High Performance

The TS-879 Pro features Intel® Core™ i3 Processor,  2GB DDR3 memory, 10  Gigabit network capability, and 6Gb/s SATA. Even  the most demanding requirements in data center or  corporate networks can be satisfied by the TS-879  Pro. With outstanding data transfer rate of over  1,000 MB/s data throughput and 100,000 IOPS 1,  intensive business applications and concurrent tasks  can be easily fulfilled.
