TerraMaster has changed things up early into 2022 with two new NAS enclosures, the F2-423 two-bay NAS, and F4-423 four-bay NAS. The vast majority of storage solutions we've seen from the company in recent times have been Direct Attached Storage (DAS) enclosures. 

Designed for SMB use, the F2-423 and F4-423 feature an Intel Celeron N5105/5095 quad-core CPU with a max peak speed of 2.9GHz, 4GB of RAM that is expandable up to 32GB (2x 16GB), two 2.5 GbE interfaces and supports Link Aggregation of up to 5Gbps of combined bandwidth, and two M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 slots that support NVMe SSDs for SSD caching or for M.2 Wi-Fi modules. They also support 20TB HDDs and up to 40TB (2 x 20TB) and 80TB (4 x 20TB) of maximum internal raw storage capacity respectively.

The F2-423 and F4-423 support a variety of backup solutions such as Centralized Backup, Duple Backup, Snapshot, CloudSync, and others.

With the new processor, TerraMaster claims that the new NASs deliver 50% improvement in handling high-load workflows, 37% faster file and photo retrieval, 35% improvement in database response time, and 40% faster webpage PHP response speeds.

While both enclosures come in the familiar TerraMaster shiny aluminium, they also come running on the TerraMaster TOS 4.2.30 operating system, they can be upgraded to the latest TOS 5 for free. This features a modernised UI and more features.


Pricing and availability

The TerraMaster F2-423 and F4-423 are now available for US$379.99 and US$499.99, respectively, on the TerraMaster website. Note that this is only an enclosure, and you’d need to purchase the HDDs to populate the NASs.
