QNAP Launches TS-x73U Rackmount NAS with AMD R-Series Quad-core CPU, Dual 10GbE SFP+ Ports, M.2 SSD Slots and up to 64GB DDR4 RAM

Tai­pei, Tai­wan, July 12, 2017 — QNAP® Sys­tems, Inc. today announ­ced the new busi­ness-class AMD-powe­r­ed TS-x73U series NAS; avail­ab­le in 8, 12 and 16-bay models with sin­gle and red­un­dant power sup­ply opti­ons. With a high-per­for­mance AMD Embed­ded R-Series RX-421ND quad-core CPU (2.1 GHz base, 3.4 GHz boost), a pre-instal­led dual-port 10GbE SFP+ net­work card, and two M.2 SATA 6Gb/s SSD slots (for empowering SSD caching to rea­li­ze opti­mi­zed sto­ra­ge effi­ci­en­cy with Qtier™ tech­no­lo­gy), the rack-moun­ta­ble TS-x73U series is ide­al for busi­ness orga­ni­za­ti­ons loo­king for a secu­re pri­va­te cloud and effi­ci­ent IT infra­st­ruc­tu­re for 10GbE net­works.

With a dual 10GbE con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on, the TS-x73U series is capa­ble of deli­vering up to 1,567 MB/s through­put, while the acce­le­ra­ted encryp­ti­on engi­ne with AES-NI enab­les unmat­ched encryp­ti­on per­for­mance of up to 1,244 MB/s to boost sys­tem per­for­mance. Cou­pled with high sca­la­bi­li­ty, the 10G­bE-ready TS-x73U series satis­fies vir­tua­li­za­ti­on and fast backup/restoration requi­re­ments for an ever-gro­wing amount of data that deman­ds hig­her band­width, and faci­li­ta­tes day-to-day ope­ra­ti­ons with grea­ter pro­duc­tivi­ty.

QNAP expands its AMD NAS lin­eup with the rack­mount TS-x73U series, pro­vi­ding the excel­lent power of the R-Series CPU along with 10GbE readi­ness at a rea­son­ab­le pri­ce for bud­get-con­scious orga­ni­za­ti­ons,” said Jason Hsu, Pro­duct Mana­ger of QNAP.

The TS-x73U series is a com­pre­hen­si­ve NAS and iSCSI-SAN sto­ra­ge solu­ti­on, sup­porting VMware®, Citrix®, Micro­soft® Hyper-V® and Win­dows Ser­ver® 2012 R2, and more advan­ced vir­tua­li­za­ti­on app­li­ca­ti­ons. With Vir­tua­li­za­ti­on Sta­ti­on, users can host mul­ti­ple Win­dows, Linux®, UNIX® and Andro­id™ vir­tu­al machi­nes on a sin­gle NAS, and uti­li­ze Con­tai­ner Sta­ti­on that inte­gra­tes LXC and Docker® tech­no­lo­gy to bene­fit from abundant app­li­ca­ti­on con­tai­ners or to initia­li­ze micro­ser­vices with the hands-on QIoT Con­tai­ners.

The TS-x73U series is a mul­ti­fa­ce­ted NAS that pro­vi­des pro­fes­sio­nal solu­ti­ons for data sto­ra­ge, back­up, sharing, and cen­tra­li­zed manage­ment. It sup­ports seam­less file sharing across Win­dows, Mac®, and Linux/UNIX, Qsync cross-device syn­chro­ni­za­ti­on, Win­dows AD/LDAP direc­to­ry ser­vices and Win­dows ACL, domain con­trol­ler for Win­dows, Windows/Mac back­up, Snapshot, and data reco­very with RTRR, rsync and cloud back­up. The built-in QTS App Cen­ter is ful­ly packed with smart apps that help boost pro­duc­tivi­ty, inclu­ding Qfiling for auto­ma­ted file orga­ni­za­ti­on, Qsirch for instant file sear­ching, QVPN for set­ting a VPN server/client, Brow­ser Sta­ti­on for acces­sing pri­va­te net­work resour­ces, IFTTT Agent for pro­duc­tive work­flow auto­ma­ti­on, QVR Pro for buil­ding a video sur­veil­lan­ce solu­ti­on, and much more.

The TS-x73U series is scalab­le by con­nec­ting QNAP expan­si­on enclo­sures (REXP-1620U-RP, REXP-1220U-RP, UX-1200U-RP, UX-800U-RP). The sto­ra­ge capa­ci­ty can also be expan­ded by using VJBOD (Vir­tu­al JBOD) that lever­ages the unu­sed sto­ra­ge capa­ci­ty of other QNAP NAS, pro­vi­ding a relia­ble, high-capa­ci­ty sto­ra­ge solu­ti­on to tack­le the ram­pant growth of data from high-reso­lu­ti­on media, vir­tua­li­za­ti­on, and sur­veil­lan­ce vide­os.
