QNAP Systems, Inc., a leading computing, networking, and storage solution innovator, today launched reliable QuTS hero NAS TS-hx87XU-RP series, available in 9, 18, 22, and 30-bay models. The series integrates the power of Intel® Xeon® E-2300 series processors with fast 10GbE and 2.5GbE Multi-Gig connectivity and an efficient HDD/SSD hybrid storage architecture that balances performance, capacity, and cost. Running the ZFS-based QuTS hero operating system, the TS-hx87XU-RP series prioritizes data integrity and provides powerful data reduction, near-limitless snapshots, up to 5 petabytes capacity per shared folder, and more, serving as ideal storage solution that meets today’s business requirements for file servers, virtualization servers, VDI, and backup/restore.
Designed for heavy business workloads, the TS-hx87XU-RP has extreme computing power from the Intel Xeon E processor, along with up to 128 GB DDR4 ECC memory to fuel multitasking demands and redundant power supply protection. In-built 10GBASE-T and 2.5GbE network ports fulfill bandwidth-demanding tasks such as virtualization, large file transfers, and real-time applications. High-speed PCIe Gen 4 slots are included for extending core NAS functionality, such as adding additional 10/25GbE network interface cards, QM2 cards to add M.2 SSDs and 2.5GbE/10GbE ports, Fibre Channel cards for SAN storage, and storage expansion cards to connect QNAP expansion enclosures. The TS-hx87XU-RP series can pair with QNAP’s managed and unmanaged 10GbE/2.5GbE switches, assisting organizations in implementing high-speed, secure and scalable network environments without going over budget.
Compared with traditional storage arrays, the TS-hx87XU-RP series with HDD/SSD hybrid storage balances cost, performance, and capacity, while the 9-bay TS-h987XU-RP also supports low-latency U.2 NVMe PCIe Gen 4 x4 SSDs. Users can easily implement SSD caching to boost IOPS-intensive workloads for accessing vital data.
“With falling SSD prices, using SSDs or hybrid storage in IT infrastructure has been widely embraced. The TS-hx87XU-RP series provides models of various storage capacity for organizations of any size to meet their performance and cost-effectiveness requirements,” said Jason Hsu, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “With flexible PCIe Gen 4 expansion, the TS-hx87XU-RP series can be further configured to meet extended mixed-use applications and data transfer needs.”
The ZFS-based TS-hx87XU-RP provides dependable, self-healing storage, advanced data reduction, and real-time SnapSync that ensures both the primary and secondary NAS maintain identical data to reinforce nonstop business operations. QNAP’s exclusive QSAL (QNAP SSD Antiwear Leveling) technology helps prevent simultaneous SSD failure and improves data protection and system reliability. The inclusive App Center also provides various install-on-demand apps to further expand the application potential of the NAS, such as hosting virtual machines and containers, facilitating VMware®/Hyper-V VM backup and Google™ Workspace/Microsoft 365® backup, simplifying local/remote/cloud backups, creating S3-compatible object storage, and more.
