QNAP Unleashes 16-bay TS-1677X Ryzen NAS, Up to 8 Cores with Graphics Processing for AI Machine Learning

Tai­pei, Tai­wan, May 17, 2018 – QNAP® Sys­tems, Inc. today released the new enter­pri­se-class TS-1677X Ryzen™ NAS with twel­ve 3.5-inch dri­ve bays, four 2.5-inch dri­ve bays, and dri­ven by the abso­lu­te per­for­mance of an AMD Ryzen 8-core pro­ces­sor, opti­mi­zed sto­rage effi­ci­en­cy with Qtier™ auto-tie­ring, and SSD caching. The AMD Ryzen pro­ces­sor, with Tur­bo Core of up to 3.7 GHz, can great­ly boost vir­tua­li­za­ti­on per­for­mance. The TS-1677X can also per­form as AI-ori­en­ted big data sto­rage when used with a high-end gra­phics card and QNAP’s “ QuAIAI deve­lo­per packa­ge.

The TS-1677X inclu­des models with AMD Ryzen 7 1700 (8-cores/16-threads), AMD Ryzen 5 1600 (6-cores/12-threads) and AMD Ryzen 3 1200 (4-cores/4-threads) that sup­port AES-NI encryp­ti­on acce­le­ra­ti­on and up to 64 GB DDR4 RAM. Every model pro­vi­des two 10GBASE-T RJ45 ports (that sup­port 10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100M speeds) and three PCIe slots for incredi­ble expan­si­on poten­ti­al. Sup­por­ted PCIe devices inclu­de a gra­phics card, 10GbE/40GbE NICs, USB 3.1 expan­si­on cards, and QM2 cards (that add addi­tio­nal M.2 SSDs or 10GbE con­nec­tivi­ty). Incor­po­ra­ting incredi­ble per­for­mance, relia­bi­li­ty and sca­la­bi­li­ty, the TS-1677X pro­vi­des an excep­tio­nal sto­rage solu­ti­on for diver­se busi­ness IT envi­ron­ments.

Facing the boo­m­ing arti­fi­ci­al intel­li­gence, QNAP’s new­ly deve­lo­ped “QuAI” AI deve­lo­per packa­ge can empower the TS-1677X NAS to per­form as an AI/ML/DL solu­ti­on. Data sci­en­tists and deve­lo­pers can leverage the NAS-based AI plat­form to quick­ly build, train, opti­mi­ze, and deploy machi­ne-lear­ning models. When used with a high-end gra­phics card, the TS-1677X deli­vers incredi­ble com­pu­ting per­for­mance to empower data-inten­si­ve machi­ne lear­ning app­li­ca­ti­ons, pro­vi­ding immea­sura­ble bene­fits for explo­ring intel­li­gent ser­vices and the gre­at busi­ness value they can pro­vi­de.

The TS-1677X NAS fea­tures flagship-gra­de hard­ware to deli­ver the 10GbE con­nec­tivi­ty and PCIe expan­da­bi­li­ty requi­red by today’s com­pu­te-inten­si­ve work­pla­ces, and empowers AI-ori­en­ted tasks for grea­ter busi­ness poten­ti­al,” said Jason Hsu, Pro­duct Mana­ger of QNAP, adding “The robust TS-1677X series inclu­des models with hig­her-per­for­mance AMD Ryzen 7, cost-effec­tive AMD Ryzen 5, and bud­get-fri­end­ly AMD Ryzen 3 opti­ons to pro­vi­de orga­ni­za­ti­ons with grea­ter choice to meet their requi­re­ments.”

The mul­ti-threa­ding TS-1677X is capa­ble of simul­ta­ne­ous­ly run­ning mul­ti­ple vir­tu­al machi­nes. It is vir­tua­li­za­ti­on-rea­dy for VMware®, Citrix®, Micro­soft® Hyper-V® and Win­dows Ser­ver® 2016 envi­ron­ments with the sup­port of iSER (iSCSI Over RDMA). It can host vir­tu­al machi­nes and con­tai­ners as an effi­ci­ent all-in-one ser­ver, and sup­port snapshots and vir­tu­al machi­ne back­ups for all-in-one vir­tua­li­za­ti­on manage­ment. The TS-1677X also sup­ports vQTS that enab­les users to run mul­ti­ple vir­tu­al QTS sys­tems on a sin­gle NAS, to pro­vi­de resour­ce segre­ga­ti­on bene­fits, fle­xi­ble app­li­ca­ti­on deploy­ment, and savings on power, cost, and phy­si­cal space.

Com­bi­ning high per­for­mance, sto­rage poten­ti­al, and SSD caching to opti­mi­ze music strea­ming, the TS-1677X ser­ves a per­fect choice for the opti­mum Roon music expe­ri­ence. Users can install the Roon Ser­ver app in the QTS App Cen­ter and easi­ly brow­se and play music with Roon apps on any com­pa­ti­ble device for mul­ti-zone mul­ti­me­dia expe­ri­en­ces.

Run­ning the intel­li­gent QTS ope­ra­ting sys­tem, the TS-1677X series is a com­pre­hen­si­ve sto­rage solu­ti­on for data sto­rage, backup/restoration, sharing and manage­ment. The built-in App Cen­ter inclu­des hund­reds of install-on-demand apps to extend NAS func­tio­n­a­li­ty: the QRM+ cen­tra­li­zed manage­ment solu­ti­on fea­tures gra­phic topo­lo­gy dia­grams for mana­ging Win­dows®, Linux®, and IPMI devices; Q’center con­so­li­da­tes the manage­ment of mul­ti­ple QNAP NAS; QVPN inte­gra­tes set­tings of VPN ser­ver and VPN cli­ents; QVR Pro pro­vi­des a pro­fes­sio­nal video sur­veil­lan­ce solu­ti­on (8 free chan­nels; expan­da­ble to 128 chan­nels); QIoT Sui­te Lite builds a pri­va­te IoT cloud plat­form; and much more.
