TerraMaster launches T9-450 and T12-450 NAS with serious specs



TerraMaster announced two new tower NAS enclosures for busy households and business use. The mighty TerraMaster T9-450 and T12-450 are designed with big data in mind, rocking nine and twelve drive bays, respectively. Other highlight specifications include server-grade processors, PCI expansion, and plenty of ports.

The best NAS depends on what you need to use the storage for. The T9-450 and T12-450 are not designed for those who are new to the world of NAS and need something to store a few documents. Costing $1,199, and $1,599, these enclosures are built for serious data deployment.
