The TerraMaster NAS catalog has been expanded to include the F4-422 Network Attached Storage (NAS), which has a 10GbE port as its key feature. In addition, the F4-422 is equipped with two 10 gigabit ethernet ports. Looking ahead, a configuration with four 6 TB Seagate IronWolf HDDs in a RAID 0 array allows read and write speeds of up to 650 and 670 MB/s, respectively.
The network storage is built on a Celeron J3455 quad-core processor, clocked at 1.5-2.3 GHz, which has 4GB of RAM which is expandable up to 8GB. Even without replacing the existing Cat6/6A cable’s network architecture, users can benefit from these rapid and best-in-class speeds. The NAS drive device was designed with professional users in mind, including 4K video editors and users with large data and strict speed requirements.
The NAS server storage has four 2.5″ or 3.5″ SATA drive bays. Their maximum total capacity is 64TB. Hot-swappable drives and expansion with external drives are supported, for which there are two USB 3.0 ports. The drives are cooled by a pair of 80mm fans. The noise level is claimed to be 19.8 dBA. With dimensions of 227 x 225 x 136 mm, the NAS weighs 2.3 kg only.
The vault supports up to 500 simultaneous connections. It allows you to organize archiving, backup storage and sharing data, to ensure their protection with encryption, backup in the cloud service, and other features.
