The TS-419U II can hold up to 4 hard drives and is designed to be easily installed in the server room and configured with up to 12TB of storage capacity. The TS-419U II is an ideal solution for centralized data backup, cross-platform file sharing, iSCSI/IP-SAN storage combo solution and a number of business applications. Moreover, the TS-419U II offers exceptionally low power consumption, reliable system operations and capacity expandability.
Besides, the intuitive MyCloudNAS service simplifies the process of publishing content residing on the TS-419U II over the Internet and helps the IT administrator create private cloud storage in just a few simple steps. The mobile app QMobile provides users with an iOS® or Android™ mobile device with a convenient way to access the TS-419U II on the go.
Windows Active Directory (AD) and LDAP Directory Service
The Windows AD and LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) directory service features enable the IT administrator to retrieve user accounts from Windows AD or LDAP-based directory server to the TS-419U II, reducing time and effort in account setup. Users can use the same login name and password to access the TS-419U II. In addition, the TS-419U II can also be configured as an LDAP server and allows devices with LDAP protocol enabled to be joined in the directory and share the same user accounts and groups.

It took me 1 failed NAS, (Gforce) to learn that you always get what you pay for. This QNAP is by far the best you can get without getting into the big brands like NetApp/EMC. This has dual 1GB interfaces with can do LACP (802.23AD) which is rare, 2.0Ghz processor, 4 bay hot swap with crazy RAID support like 6 and 10! I'm in the proces of swapping out 4 old Seagate 320GB drives with 4 newer Hitachi 500GB drives and when I pulled the first drive, I got an email saying the drive was pulled and that RAID was in a degraded state.
