QNAP Systems’ new enterprise-class TS-1677X Ryzen NAS sports twelve 3.5-inch drive bays, four 2.5-inch drive bays, and driven by the performance of an AMD Ryzen 8-core processor, optimized storage efficiency with Qtier auto-tiering, and SSD caching.

The AMD Ryzen processor, with Turbo Core of up to 3.7GHz, can greatly boost virtualization performance. The TS-1677X can also perform as AI-oriented big data storage when used with a high-end graphics card and QNAP’s “ QuAI” AI developer package.

The TS-1677X includes models with AMD Ryzen 7 1700 (8-cores/16-threads), AMD Ryzen 5 1600 (6-cores/12-threads) and AMD Ryzen 3 1200 (4-cores/4-threads) that support AES-NI encryption acceleration and up to 64 GB DDR4 RAM. Every model provides two 10GBASE-T RJ45 ports (that support 10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100M speeds) and three PCIe slots for incredible expansion potential. Supported PCIe devices include a graphics card, 10GbE/40GbE NICs, USB 3.1 expansion cards, and QM2 cards (that add additional M.2 SSDs or 10GbE connectivity). 

Facing the booming artificial intelligence, QNAP’s newly developed “QuAI” AI developer package can empower the TS-1677X NAS to perform as an AI/ML/DL solution. Data scientists and developers can leverage the NAS-based AI platform to quickly build, train, optimize, and deploy machine-learning models. When used with a high-end graphics card, the TS-1677X delivers computing performance to empower data-intensive machine learning applications.

The multi-threading TS-1677X is capable of simultaneously running multiple virtual machines. It is virtualization-ready for VMware, Citrix, Microsoft Hyper-V and Windows Server 2016 environments with the support of iSER (iSCSI Over RDMA). It can host virtual machines and containers as an efficient all-in-one server, and support snapshots and virtual machine backups for all-in-one virtualization management. The TS-1677X also supports vQTS that enables users to run multiple virtual QTS systems on a single NAS, to provide resource segregation benefits, flexible application deployment, and savings on power, cost, and physical space.
