Taipei, Taiwan, September 20, 2022 - QNAP® Systems, Inc., a leading computing, networking, and storage solution innovator, today launched the 4-bay TS-464 and 6-bay TS-664 quad-core 2.5GbE NAS designed for professionals and office users with high-speed demands. With M.2 NVMe SSD slots, PCIe Gen 3 expandability for 10GbE or 5GbE connectivity and 4K HDMI output, the TS-x64 enables not only installing a QM2 card for M.2 SSD caching, but also convenient virtual machine display and smooth multimedia streaming. The TS-x64 also supports Snapshots to help protect data from ransomware threats.
“By integrating Intel’s Celeron high-performance processor and providing 2.5GbE speeds, M.2 PCIe Gen 3 slots and PCIe Gen 3 expansion slots, QNAP’s TS-x64 includes cutting-edge hardware to fulfill high-bandwidth data transmission and virtualization applications,” said Meiji Chang, General Manager of QNAP.
“We are excited to see QNAP adopt the latest Intel® Celeron® N5105/N5095 quad-core processors for its new NAS series, allowing SMB users to take advantage of the flexible I/O and performance capabilities of the processor for their performance-demanding applications,” said Jason Ziller, General Manager, Client Connectivity Division at Intel Corporation.
The TS-x64 is powered by an Intel® Celeron® N5105/ N5095 quad-core 4-thread processor (burst up to 2.9 GHz) with Intel® AES-NI encryption engine and support for up to 16GB dual-channel memory. The TS-x64 has two 2.5GbE ports, two USB 2.0 (480Mbps) ports, and two USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) ports that provide faster data transfer and backup. With the M.2 PCIe Gen3 slot, the TS-x64 enables cache acceleration or SSD storage pools for improved performance. The TS-x64 has a PCIe Gen 3 slot allowing installing a 10GbE network card, a QM2 card for NVMe SSD caching or Qtier. The TS-x64’s storage capacity can be expanded by connecting TL and TR storage expansion enclosures.
The TS-x64 adopts the latest QTS 5.0 operating system and includes rich NAS home/business applications: HBS (Hybrid Backup Sync) realizes efficient local/remote/cloud backup jobs; Block-based snapshots make data protection and recovery easier and effectively mitigates the threat of ransomware; HybridMount provides cloud storage gateways that integrate private and public cloud storage and enable local caching; Virtualization Station and Container Station enable light virtualization applications; QVR Elite helps deploy a cutting-edge smart surveillance system. To help fight against cyber threats, the TS-x64 provides authentication management, QVPN (Supporting WireGuard®), Malware Remover, and Security Counselor for enhanced NAS security. Home users will also enjoy the wide range of multimedia applications (including Plex®), streaming capabilities, and a built-in HDMI port, which allows them to enjoy their multimedia on their device of choice.
