QNAP releases five new SAS-Enabled Turbo NAS devices

QNAP Systems yesterday officially launched five business-class, SAS-enabled Turbo NAS models, including TS-EC1679U-SAS-RP and TS-EC1279U-SAS-RP which support both SAS and SATA 6Gbps hard drives, and the 2.5” high-density SS-EC2479U-SAS-RP, SS-EC1879U-SAS-RP and SS-EC1279U-SAS-RP. The support of SAS hard drives increases disk input/output performance and offers high reliability for data transmission and storage. The new models offer storage expansion port(s) allowing seamless capacity expansion with QNAP RAID expansion enclosures to fulfill mission-critical storage needs of small and medium businesses, with persistent throughput to balance resource-demanding applications.

QNAP Turbo NASThe new SAS-enabled models are equipped with a Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® 3.4GHz processor with 8GB DDR3 ECC RAM, feature 10GbE-ready network connectivity, and support SSD caching to boost IOPS performance, designed to improve the overall workflow of IOPS-demanding applications such as virtualization and data center deployment. “The new SAS-enabled Turbo NAS models support enterprise-level SAS hard drives that will greatly satisfy performance-demanding businesses," said David Tsao, product manager of QNAP. “The new models also support lower cost high-capacity SATA hard drives for large data archiving and high-speed, high stability SSDs for I/O-intensive operations. With the new SAS-enabled Turbo NAS, businesses can enjoy great flexibility in hard drive selection.”

The new models are designed for scalability, supporting online capacity expansion by connecting multiple QNAP RAID expansion enclosures (REXP-1600U-RP and REXP-1200U-RP) to expand the total storage to over 400TB raw capacity. The flexible design allows businesses to gradually expand their storage on demand and therefore have more control over storage deployment.

The SAS-enabled Turbo NAS models are certified by major virtualization, supporting VMware® vSphere™ 5.1 and Citrix® XenServer™, and are compatible with Microsoft® Hyper-V™ and Windows Server 2012. The efficiency of operations and management in virtualization applications is further supported by integrationof VMware VAAI, QNAP vSphere Client plug-in, Microsoft ODX, and QNAP SMI-S.

The new models offer flexible backup and recovery solutions. Windows and Mac users can use the QNAP NetBak Replicator utility and Apple Time Machine respectively to easily back up data. Disaster recovery solutions include Real-time Remote Replication (RTRR) for real-time or scheduled data replication and backup to cloud storage including Amazon® S3, ElephantDrive®, Symform® and Google® Drive. Third-party backup software such as Veeam® Backup & Replication and Acronis® True Image are also supported, making the SAS-enabled Turbo NAS a great foundation to secure valuable business data.
The cross-platform file sharing for Windows®, Mac®, and Linux/UNIX users makes the new models ideal centralized storage solutions for SMBs with a large number of users. The Windows AD and LDAP directory services greatly save IT administrators time and effort in account setup. The Windows ACL (Access Control List) feature offers sophisticated shared folder permission settings that simplifies IT management and privilege control.
