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 your NAS storage space. The TX-500P provides an additional 5 hard drives providing expanded capacity for the NAS, making it ideal for data backup, 4K digital media collection and video surveillance storage with blazing-fast data transmission performance.
Simply connect the TX-500P to the NAS and power it on. The 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.
Missing mode protection
If your TX-500P is accidentally disconnected, your NAS enters the 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.
Efficient backup solution
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 your NAS. The QNAP RTRR or rsync service lets IT administrators back up NAS data to the TX-500P on a real-time or scheduled basis.
Smart power design
The TX-500P automatically powers on and off with your NAS, allowing for total convenience and energy saving.
Flexible drive selection
The TX-500P offers high flexibility in hard drive selection. IT administrators can choose high-capacity SATA HDDs for large data archiving, or high-speed and high-stability SSDs for I/O intensive operations.
Excellent hardware design
The TX-500P includes a full internal PSU to provide ample power even under sustained full load. The well-ventilated chassis and smart fan help to provide efficient cooling for better stability and reliability, with the fan enabling efficient heat removal even when all 5 drives are under full operation simultaneously.
