QNAP Announces UK Availability of Business Series Turbo NAS Products

London, IP Expo, October 19th, 2011 – QNAP® Systems, Inc. today announced the official UK availability of six additional models to its Turbo NAS range.

• Its first 12-drive 2U rackmount models (TS-EC1279U-RP and TS-1279U-RP)

• Two new 8-Drive rackmount models (TS-EC879U-RP and TS-879U-RP)

• Two new 8 & 10 drive desktop Units (TS-879 Pro and TS-1079 Pro)

The 12-drive TS-EC1279U-RP and TS-1279U-RP 2U rackmount Turbo NAS models provide up to 36TB storage capacity and are powered by a Quad-core Intel® Xeon® CPU and Dual-core Intel® Core™ i3 CPU respectively. Both models feature optional 10GbE networking and can achieve data throughput of over 1,000MB/sec and 100,000 IOPS using 10GbE. The 8-drive TS-EC879U-RP and TS-879U-RP 2U rackmount Turbo NAS models feature the same specifications but provide lower storage capacity of up to 24TB. This range of Turbo NAS products is capable of delivering ultra-high performance suitable for high-end SMB and data centre environments demanding efficient and large capacity storage solutions, and continuous up-time for mission critical applications.

“QNAP’s lineup designed for high-end SMBs delivers stunning performance with an optional 10 GbE card and comprehensive business features, all at competitive prices to fulfill the growing requirement for efficient, value for money, storage solutions for high-end SMBs,” said David Tsao, product manager of QNAP. “Redundant power supplies are provided on all new models to ensure continuous system up-time,” Tsao added. “The TS-EC879U-RP with ECC RAM further enhances system reliability.”

New Desktop Turbo NAS Products

QNAP also announces an expansion of its popular business series desktop Turbo NAS servers with an emphasis on maximum performance. The new TS-879 Pro (8 drive) and TS-1079 Pro (10 Drive), with up to 30TB of online storage, aim to fulfill the storage needs of high-end SMB environments. These models also feature an Intel® Core™ i3 CPU to deliver data throughput of over 1,000MB/sec via 10 GbE networking, ideal for network-wide backups, file sharing in mixed Windows®, Mac®, Linux, and UNIX environments, private cloud storage, server virtualization, and high-performance computing applications such as high definition video editing.

“Today's business environment requires network attached storage solutions that provide efficient data access,” said David Tuhy, General Manager, Intel Data Center Group Storage. “Intel technology powers a broad range of innovative solutions, including the Intel® Core™ i3 processor family for entry level data storage.”

“Network administrators of high-end SMBs can now rejoice,” said Richard Lee, president of QNAP Systems. “For now there is a viable alternative to the overpriced networked storage that has been previously marketed to the high-end SMBs. QNAP’s new TS-879 Pro and TS-1079 Pro deliver uncompromising performance and features at prices sure to make the accountant smile.”
