QNAP Systems announced the new business-class AMD-powered quad-core TS-x63U series NAS; available in 4, 8 and 12-bay models with single and redundant power supply options. The TS-x63U series provides 10GbE network connectivity with its single-port SFP+ network adapter, and supports bridging 1GbE devices to a 10GbE network with its four built-in GbE interfaces. Coupled with an AES-NI hardware-accelerated encryption engine, SSD cache support, and flexible scalability; the TS-x63U series is ideal for SMBs looking for backup, restoration, virtualization storage, private cloud, and to future-proof their IT infrastructure for 10GbE networks.
The TS-x63U series is powered by an advanced 64-bit AMD Embedded G-Series quad-core 2.0GHz SoC processor with 4GB DDR3L RAM (upgradable to 16GB) and features four 1GbE LAN ports, delivering high speeds of up to 1,090 MB/s sequential read throughput with10GbE configuration for multi-tasking business applications. The AES-NI hardware encryption engine allows unmatched sequential read performance exceeding 780 MB/s with AES 256-bit full NAS volume encryption, with the new shared folder encryption supported, accelerating system performance and security while ensuring the safety of sensitive data.
Featuring the latest QTS 4.2 operating system, the TS-x63U series provides ever-comprehensive virtualization applications. Users can run multiple applications on Windows/Linux/UNIX/Android based virtual machines on the NAS with the Virtualization Station; operate multiple isolated Linux systems on the NAS as well as download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry by using the Container Station which integrates LXC and Docker lightweight virtualization technologies; and simplify virtual storage management for VMware, Microsoft and Citrix virtualization solutions.
The QTS Storage Manager can be used to manage the entire NAS capacity, and quickly create volume/LUN snapshots for easy backup, restoration and cloning. The TS-x63U series provides an easy way to immediately expand the total storage with up to 24 drives (192TB total raw capacity with 8TB drives) by connecting one QNAP expansion enclosure (12-bay UX-1200U-RP or 8-bay UX-800U-RP). SMBs can freely enlarge their storage capacity to tackle storage-intensive applications such as video surveillance, archiving large data, TV broadcast storage, and more.
The TS-x63U series functions as an all-in-one NAS with feature-rich business applications. Cross-platform file sharing for Windows, Mac, and Linux/UNIX users makes the TS-x63U series an excellent centralized storage solution. The support for Windows AD, LDAP directory services and Windows ACL boosts productivity for permission settings. It can work as a domain controller for Windows, and provides flexible backup solutions for Windows and Mac and disaster recovery solutions with RTRR, rsync and cloud storage backup.
QNAP offers versatile apps to improve work productivity: Qsirch quickens NAS data searching with its powerful near real-time full-text search engine; Qsync adds central configuration mode and remotely erasing Qsync folder, and is helpful for group file sharing and collaboration; Q’center allows central management of multiple QNAP NAS units; and Gmail Backup helps archive important emails in the NAS.
