QNAP Enhances Its Rack-mounted Business Series Turbo NAS Lineup With 3 New Models
QNAP Systems, Inc., a leading manufacturer of world class NAS servers today announced the latest refresh of its rack-mounted Business Series Turbo NAS servers which are hugely popular with corporate and entry-level enterprise customers for their sheer performance and business-ready features. Announced today are two new 4-drive units, the TS-459U-RP+ and the TS-459U-SP+ with up to 8TB of networked storage, and the TS-859U-RP+ with up to a whopping 16TB of online storage (using 2TB hard drives).
These new rack-mounted Business Series TS-x59U-RP+ models incorporate the new dual-core Intel Atom processor D525 with 1.8GHz clock speed and 1GB RAM, which can achieve up to 113MB/s transfer rates (FTP/Samba reads) via dual Gigabit LAN ports while maintaining guaranteed low power consumption.
The TS-459U-RP+ and the TS-859U-RP+ contain redundant power supplies, which ensure continuous services and maximum up-time of the NAS in the data centre even if one of the power supply units failed. The system will notify the administrator via SMS or email should any power supply failure occur. The TS-459U-SP+ contains a single power supply. The SP+ model can be upgraded to a TS-459U-RP+ by simply adding a redundant power supply, sold separately.
Businesses looking to embrace or expand cloud computing will find the new TSx59U-RP+ models exciting as they are fully VMware and Citrix ready and Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V clusters compliant. QNAP continues its industry-leading iSCSI support on all the new models for fully virtualized server clustering and virtualized environments including support for MC/S, MPIO, SPC-3, and thin provisioning. With built-in iSCSI initiator and target service, network storage can be virtually expanded by simply adding additional QNAP Turbo NAS units to the network and adding virtual volumes, up to 8 per device. Data security is built in, with volume-level AES 256-bit encryption. The TS-x59U-RP+ models even feature DOM architecture with the ability to boot from dual operating systems in the event of a failure.
"QNAP rack-mounted Turbo NAS servers have long been hailed as the perfect blending of performance and usability," said Laurent Cheng, Product Manager for QNAP Systems, Inc. "No other NAS manufacturer delivers the raw horsepower of a QNAP NAS plus real-world business applications like centralized network-wide backup, hosting of up to 32 websites, file sharing among Windows, Mac, Linux, and UNIX machines, and a whole lot more."
The new TS-x59U-RP+ models feature a host of desirable features including support for 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch hard drives housed in lockable, hot-swappable drive carriers, RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 5+ hot spare, and 6+ hot spare (TS-859U-RP+ only) with online RAID capacity expansion, online RAID level migration, and RAID recovery. The QNAP TS-x59U-RP+ models offer a rich suite of business-ready applications including the most comprehensive centralized backup available, website hosting, printer sharing, file server/sharing, and even network video surveillance. The capabilities of the TS-x59U-RP+ units can be expanded with exclusive QPKG open-source developed for a variety of business applications including SQL database management, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and even ecommerce.
The new TS-x59U-RP+ series comes with V3.3 of the QNAP NAS management software embedded as firmware.
The new TS-x59U-RP+ NAS servers will be available starting in November through popular commercial distributors, resellers, and retailers globally. For more information, visit the product pages of TS-459U-RP/SP+ and TS-859U-RP+.
