QNAP Unravels Fresh NAS Series Rackmounts
FREMONT, CA: Taipei-based Quality Network Appliance Provider (QNAP) Systems has announced the release of its brand new enterprise grade rackmount TVS-ECx80U-SAS R2 and TS-ECx80U R2 Network Attached Storage (NAS) series. Both the NAS series feature two built-in SFP+ based 10GbE ports and carry the same price tag as its predecessor TVS-ECx80U-SAS/TS-ECx80U series. Catering to the industry demands for higher-speed Ethernet Solutions, the TS-ECx80U R2 series has models that feature an Intel Core i3 3.5 GHz processor and 8GB DDR3 or 4GB DDR3 ECC RAM.
The TVS-ECx80U-SAS R2 series comes equipped with a high-powered XeonE3-1246 v3 3.5 GHz processor and 16GB DDR3 non-ECC or 8GB DDR3 ECC RAM. Also featuring models powered by an Intel Xeon E3-1246 v3 3.5 GHz processor and 4GB DDR3 ECC RAM, the TS-ECx80U R2 series has additional options that include Intel Core i3 3.5 GHz processor and 8GB DDR3 non-ECC or 4GB DDR3 ECC RAM. Both the R2 and NAS series feature four inbuilt Gigabit Ethernet ports and two 10GbE SFP+ ports that support high-speed networks while proving beneficial for IOPS-demanding applications for virtualization, databases, high-resolution video editing, and workflow sharing.
“The adoption of 10 Gigabit Ethernet has been more gradual, so we have launched the advanced TVS-ECx80U-SAS R2 and TS-ECx80U R2 NAS series that include 10GbE SFP+ ports for businesses to immediately enjoy 10GbE network connectivity without purchasing additional accessories,” says David Tsao, Product Manager of QNAP. Both the series support Qtier (Storage Auto-tiering), SSD caching, iSCSI-SAN, virtualization, and cross-platform sharing. The NAS storage series also provides support for Qsirch, the near real-time NAS search engine, Container station for containerized virtualization and a Virtualization Station for hosting VMs. QNAP’s new storage series aims to cater to mission-critical storage requirements of enterprises by delivering consistent throughput that balances resource-intensive applications.
