FREMONT, CA: A high-speed Ethernet solution is what the businesses’ desire, and the release of QNAP’s TVS-ECx80U-SAS R2 and TS-ECx80U R2, enterprise-class rackmount Network Attached Storage (NAS) device fulfills this desire. Quality Network Appliance Provider (QNAP) systems offer NAS and Network Video Recorder (NVR) solutions which are featured with easy-to-use, robust to operate, increased storage capacity and reliability.

The new NAS device is a successor to the TVS-ECx80U-SAS/TS-ECxs80U series but maintains the same price tags. The successor is built-in with two Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP+) transceiver based 10GbE ports. Both the devices are equipped with Intel Xeon E3-1246 v3 3.5 GHz processor. The differentiating factor is that the TVS-ECx80U-SAS R2 series has a capacity of 16GB DDR3 non-ECC or 8GB DDR3 ECC RAM whereas, TS-ECx80U R2 series has a capacity of 8GB DDR3 non-ECC or 4GB DDR3 ECC RAM.

“The adoption of 10 Gigabit Ethernet has been more gradual, so we have launched the advanced series that include 10GbE SFP+ ports for businesses’ to immediately enjoy 10GbE network connectivity without purchasing additional accessories,” explains David Tsao, Product Manager, QNAP.

The latest NAS series offers two 10GbE SFP+ ports for businesses to take advantage of 10GbE network connectivity proving beneficial for Input/output Operations Per Second (IOPS)-demanding applications— virtualization, databases, high-resolution video editing, and workflow sharing. The two devices are powered by QNAP’s OS—QTS 4.2, empowering QNAP’s auto-tiering, Qtier, Solid-state Drive (SSD) caching, cross-platform file sharing, Internet Small Computer System Interface Storage Area Network (iSCSI-SAN), virtualization, and Qsirch. The novel series is developed to deliver businesses a persistent balance of resource-demandin g applications and satisfy critical-storage needs.
