QNAP Rolls Out 4/6/8-bay TS-x73 Series NAS with Quad-core AMD R-Series Processor

QNAP Rolls Out 4/6/8-bay TS-x73 Series NAS with Quad-core AMD R-Series Pro­ces­sor, Dual M.2 SATA SSD Slots, and Dual PCIe Slots for Adding M.2 SSD, 10GbE, and a Gra­phics Card


Tai­pei, Tai­wan, March 20, 2018 — QNAP® Sys­tems, Inc. today laun­ched the cost-effec­tive high-per­for­mance 4-bay ( TS-473), 6-bay ( TS-673), and 8-bay ( TS-873) TS-x73 series NAS fea­turing an AMD RX-421ND quad-core CPU with Tur­bo Core up to 3.4GHz and two PCIe slots for instal­ling a QNAP QM2 card, wire­less net­work card or a gra­phics card to extend NAS func­tio­n­a­li­ties. The TS-x73 series pro­vi­des small and medi­um busi­nes­ses with an ide­al NAS solu­ti­on to build a pri­va­te cloud for app­li­ca­ti­ons inclu­ding high-speed data trans­fer, backup/recovery, vir­tua­li­za­ti­on, media play­back and gra­phics dis­play.

The TS-x73 NAS series pres­ents a bud­get-fri­end­ly solu­ti­on by allo­wing users to add more value to their NAS based on their indi­vi­du­al needs. Through the two PCIe slots, users can install a QNAP QM2 card to add SSD caching/10GbE con­nec­tivi­ty for boosted per­for­mance; a wire­less card with Wire­lessAP Sta­ti­on app to turn the NAS into a wire­less access point; or even an PCIe bus-powe­red gra­phics card to enab­le 4K trans­co­ding and HDMI out­put for a grea­ter media mul­ti­me­dia expe­ri­ence,” said Jason Hsu, Pro­duct Mana­ger of QNAP.

The TS-x73 series is powe­red by a high-per­for­mance and ener­gy-effi­ci­ent AMD RX-421ND quad-core 2.1 GHz CPU (Tur­bo Core up to 3.4 GHz) and 4GB/8GB DDR4 RAM (up to 64GB). With an optio­nal 10GbE net­work card instal­led, it deli­vers up to 1661 MB/s through­put and up to 1575 MB/s with AES-NI hard­ware-acce­le­ra­ted encryp­ti­on. With two built-in M.2 SATA SSD slots and SSD caching (M.2 SSD sold sepa­r­ate­ly), cou­pled with Qtier auto-tie­ring tech­no­lo­gy, the TS-x73 pro­vi­des opti­mal sto­rage effi­ci­en­cy across M.2 SSDs, 2.5-inch SSDs and high-capa­ci­ty HDDs for balan­ced cost, per­for­mance, and capa­ci­ty. The TS-x73 series sup­ports block-based snapshots to record the sta­te of the sys­tem at any time to help users miti­ga­te the impact of ran­som­ware attacks and to ensu­re the sta­bi­li­ty of ser­vice ope­ra­ti­ons.

The TS-x73 series fea­tures two PCIe (Gen3 x4) slots that allow grea­ter sys­tem fle­xi­bi­li­ty. In addi­ti­on to instal­ling a 10GbE net­work card for boos­ting vir­tua­li­za­ti­on per­for­mance, users can also install a QNAP QM2 card that allows for adding two M.2 SSDs for SSD caching or to crea­te a RAID 5 tie­red sto­rage along with the two M.2 SSDs in the NAS to increa­se data pro­tec­tion. The­re are also QM2 cards that inclu­de 10GbE 10GBASE-T con­nec­tivi­ty to pro­vi­de SSD caching with high-speed net­work con­nec­tivi­ty on a sin­gle card.

Alter­na­tively, users could install a low-power gra­phics card (powe­red sole­ly by the PCIe slot) to boost sys­tem per­for­mance and enab­le smooth 4K video trans­co­ding and HDMI out­put; install a wire­less net­work card (for examp­le: QNAP QWA-AC2600) to use the TS-x73 as a wire­less base sta­ti­on, allo­wing users to direc­t­ly access the NAS, inclu­ding NAS ser­vices and Inter­net con­nec­tion.

The busi­ness-rea­dy TS-x73 series is a NAS and iSCSI-SAN uni­fied sto­rage solu­ti­on that not only sup­ports VMware®, Citrix®, Micro­soft® Hyper-V® and Win­dows Ser­ver® 2016 envi­ron­ments, but can also natively host mul­ti­ple vir­tu­al machi­nes (with Win­dows®, Linux®, UNIX® and Andro­id™) and con­tai­ners (LXC and Docker®). Sto­rage space can be fle­xi­b­ly expan­ded using two 8-bay UX-800P or 5-bay UX-500P or four 10-bay REXP-1000 Pro expan­si­on enclo­sures. Users can also use QNAP VJBOD tech­no­lo­gy to leverage the unu­sed space of ano­t­her QNAP NAS for sto­rage expan­si­on.
