Taipei, Taiwan, September 16, 2015 - QNAP® Systems, Inc. today announced the new business-class AMD-powered quad-core TS-x63U series NAS; available in 4, 8 and 12-bay models with single and redundant power supply options. The TS-x63U series provides 10GbE network connectivity with its single-port SFP+ network adapter, and supports bridging 1GbE devices to a 10GbE networkwith its four built-in GbE interfaces. Coupled with an AES-NI hardware-accelerated encryption engine, SSD cache support, and flexible scalability; the TS-x63U series is ideal for SMBs looking for backup, restoration, virtualization storage, private cloud, and to future-proof their IT infrastructure for 10GbE networks.
The TS-x63U series is powered by an advanced 64-bit AMD Embedded G-Series quad-core 2.0GHz SoC processor with 4GB DDR3L RAM (upgradable to 16GB) and features four 1GbE LAN ports, delivering high speeds of up to 1,090 MB/s sequential read throughput with 10GbE configuration for multi-tasking business applications. The AES-NI hardware encryption engine allows unmatched sequential read performance exceeding 780 MB/s with AES 256-bit full NAS volume encryption, with the new shared folder encryption supported, accelerating system performance and security while ensuring the safety of sensitive data.
“QNAP expands its AMD-powered NAS product lineup with the rackmount TS-x63U series, providing 10GbE readiness at an affordable price for budget-conscious organisations,” said Jason Hsu, Product Manager of QNAP. “It also exclusively supports connecting between 1 & 10GbE environment to maximise network accessibility at no extra cost with the upcoming Qswitch app.”
