QNAP Systems’ enterprise-class TES-x85U NAS series includes the 18-bay TES-1885U and the 30-bay TES-3085U. Both models are powered by a high-performance yet energy-saving Intel Xeon D processor, and provides the choice of dual OS inside a single rackmount NAS.

Users can choose to install the business storage QES operating system or the app-centric QTS operating system based on their needs. The TES-x85U series with QES is a solid backup storage solution for the dual-controller Enterprise ZFS NAS (ES1640dc).

The 12Gb/s SAS-enabled TES-1885U and TES-3085U adopt a 14nm Intel Xeon D 64-bit SoC processor with an integrated PCH (6-core and 8-core, respectively). Both models have two built-in 10GbE SFP+ ports to natively support 10GbE network environments, and can further boost system performance with PCIe Gen.3 expansion for additional 10GbE/40GbE adapters and PCIe NVMe SSD. The high-density TES-3085U is especially useful for providing an ultra-fast all-flash storage solution that offers up to 24 drive bays and six dedicated SDDs bays for caching.

The TES-x85U provides the flexibility of two operating systems, either the FreeBSD-based QES for enterprise-level storage with maximized business continuity, or Linux-based QTS for enjoying application storage with greater functionality. QES features ZFS, the best file system for business data storage, and supports multiple advanced functions for high-end enterprise storage, including RAID-Z for data protection, nearly limitless snapshots, SnapSync, data deduplication and in-line compression for optimized VDI storage performance, self-healing, and more. With SnapSync, the TES-x85U can be used as an efficient backup system for QNAP Enterprise ZFS NAS to immediately recover all the backed up data locally to take over operations and services with maximized uptime.

The TES-x85U with QTS performs as an all-in-one NAS solution. QNAP’s Qtier Technology empowers the TES-x85U with Auto Tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency across SSDs and SAS/SATA drives, providing utmost efficient storage center. A disaster recovery solution is fulfilled by backup options including volume and LUN snapshots.

The TES-x85U series is certified for VMware vSphere 6.0 and supports VAAI, provides compatibility for Microsoft Hyper-V with the support for ODX and Windows Server 2012, and supports Citrix XenServer 6.0 to maximize flexible deployment and management in virtualization environments.

The scalable TES-x85U series can connect up to eight QNAP expansion enclosures (REXP-1620U-RP and REXP-1220U-RP) to flexibly expand its raw capacity. With VJBOD (Virtual JBOD), users can also mount the unused storage capacity from other QNAP NAS units to the TES-x85U and create virtual storage pools and volumes for operating NAS services as if they were using local drives.
