<p>Those advanced RAID functions which were previously accessible only for enterprise-grade applications are now available on QNAP TS-409 Pro with more disaster-proof enhancements and simplified operation procedure. IT managers can easily set up the NAS as a centralized storage center with high-level data protection and flexible expansion capability.
