Taipei Taiwan, July 20, 2011 – QNAP Systems, Inc. today announced that a newly released research study by leading industry analyst firm Gartner shows that QNAP is ranked as the #1 Asian supplier of stand-alone NAS products in the sub-$5,000 price band in terms of vendor revenue. Most impressively, QNAP’s revenue growth jumped 71% in 2010 vs. 2009, making QNAP a rising star in the highly competitive networked storage category.
