QNAP Systems, Inc. (QNAP) today announced the launch of the TS-1635AX NAS - the successor of the landmark TS-1635 NAS. With 16 drive bays (twelve 3.5-inch and four 2.5-inch) and dual 10GbE SFP+ ports, the TS-1635AX is further boosted with a high-performance Marvell ARMADA 8040 ARMv8 Cortex-A72 64-bit quad-core 1.6 GHz processor and two M.2 SATA SSD slots (2280 form factor) and supports Linux virtualization, SSD caching, and Qtier 2.0. The TS-1635AX sets a new standard for ARM-based NAS and marks a new milestone for high-capacity and affordable desktop NAS models.
The TS-1635AX supports QNAP's proprietary Qtier 2.0 for automatic tiered storage and provides a cache-like mechanism in volumes and LUNs to boost the performance of applications where high-efficiency data access is necessary (such as virtualization). The TS-1635AX also supports containerized virtualization (LXC and Docker) and Linux command-line interface (CLI) virtual machines* for deploying virtualization applications to fully realize the potential of the Marvell ARMADA 8040 processor.Add a comment
