apacer nas ssdsIn response to the long-distance business opportunities in the era of 5G IoT, and the trend towards storage of massive amounts of data, Apacer, a leading industrial storage and memory brand, has launched SSDs tailored specifically for network attached storage (NAS) applications. Apacer has been deeply involved in the field of industrial memory for more than 20 years, focusing on the development of non-volatile flash memory and SSD applications, and providing highly customized industrial-grade storage and memory solutions. Considering NAS users' stringent data storage and security requirements, Apacer's NAS SSDs combine high durability, high efficiency, high reliability, and silent operation. They make it easy to quickly upgrade from traditional hard drives or ordinary SSDs, and create security and reliability for home office or small-and-medium-business (SMB) NAS applications.

High Durability and Extended Service Life

Since an NAS system is expected to operate year-round, reliability is a prime concern. Apacer's NAS SSDs were created to prioritize the performance of a NAS system. Large amounts of data can be read and written smoothly 24/7, and the service life is more than 3 times longer than a consumer-grade SSD, meaning frequent replacements are unnecessary.
