QNAP launches TS-963X, a 9-bay AMD Quad-Core NAS with 10GBASE-T/Multi-Gigabit Connectivity and Qtier Auto-tiering

Tai­pei, Tai­wan, May 8, 2018QNAP® Sys­tems, Inc. (QNAP®) today unvei­led the TS-963X, a 9-bay NAS with an AMD quad-core 2.0 GHz pro­ces­sor, up to 8 GB RAM (upgrade­ab­le to 16 GB), and 10GBASE-T con­nec­tivi­ty sup­porting five con­nec­tion speeds (10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100M). The com­pact TS-963X is the size of a 5-bay NAS but accom­mo­da­tes five 3.5-inch HDD bays and four 2.5-inch SSDs bays that deli­ver high-per­for­mance, high-capa­ci­ty sto­ra­ge poten­ti­al inclu­ding auto­ma­tic file/data tie­ring based on access fre­quen­cy (Qtier Tech­no­lo­gy). The TS-963X is ide­al for small busi­nes­ses and orga­ni­za­ti­ons to boost data access effi­ci­en­cy, net­work trans­mis­si­on speed and to meet deman­ds of mis­si­on-cri­ti­cal tasks.

The TS-963X is desi­gned to enhan­ce the ever­y­day work­flows of small busi­nes­ses and orga­ni­za­ti­ons at a bud­get-fri­end­ly pri­ce,” noted Jason Hsu, Pro­duct Mana­ger of QNAP. “The 10GBASE-T/NBASE-T port and four 2.5-inch bays for SSDs can all signi­fi­cant­ly impro­ve per­for­mance, allo­wing the total cost of ownership to remain rea­son­ab­le and afford­a­ble for most busi­nes­ses,” he added.

The TS-963X is powe­r­ed by QTS, the QNAP NAS ope­ra­ting sys­tem that sup­ports power­ful sto­ra­ge manage­ment fea­tures such as snapshots, Vir­tu­al JBOD (VJBOD), and much more. QTS also offers various apps to pro­vi­de essen­ti­al func­tio­na­li­ty and addi­tio­nal value-added ser­vices, inclu­ding Hybrid Back­up Sync for backing up and syn­cing files with local, remo­te, and cloud sto­ra­ge; QVR Pro can pro­vi­de a pro­fes­sio­nal sur­veil­lan­ce solu­ti­on; and Vir­tua­li­za­ti­on Sta­ti­on and Linux Sta­ti­on allow users to host vir­tu­al machi­nes that run Win­dows, Linux, or UNIX-like ope­ra­ting sys­tems. Many more apps from QNAP and trusted part­ners are avail­ab­le to down­load from the QTS App Cen­ter. The TS-963X is also VMware ready, Citrix ready and Win­dows Ser­ver 2016 cer­ti­fied.
