CES 2014 - QNAP had a special treat in its suite this year for CES, a new large, unannounced SMB model. The new QNAP TS-EC2480U-RP is a 4u rackmount solution with a very powerful feature list.




Starting off, this is QNAP's largest NAS to date with twenty-four 3.5" HDD trays. The system is arranged in four rows of six drive bays. The fun doesn't stop there though.




The NAS uses an Intel Xeon E3-1345 v4 processor running at 3.4GHz and 8GB of DDR3 ECC DRAM that's expandable to 32 GB. Four gigabit ports come standard from the factory but dual PCIe slots bring 10GbE into the picture.


We already mentioned the 24 HDD bays but inside, the system has two mSATA slots for mSATA SSD cache. The stated performance is 4000MB/s throughput with over 500K IOPS. The system currently runs QNAP's SMB 4.1 software.
