QNAP Systems’ new TS-1635AX NAS is the successor tothe landmark TS-1635 NAS. With 16 drive bays (twelve 3.5-inch and four 2.5-inch) and dual 10GbE SFP+ ports, it’s boosted with a high-performance Marvell ARMADA 8040 ARMv8 Cortex-A72 64-bit quad-core 1.6 GHz processor and two M.2 SATA SSD slots (2280 form factor) and supports Linux virtualization, SSD caching, and Qtier 2.0.
The TS-1635AX supports QNAP’s proprietary Qtier 2.0 for automatic tiered storage and provides a cache-like mechanism in volumes and LUNs to boost the performance of applications where high-efficiency data access is necessary (such as virtualization). The TS-1635AX also supports containerized virtualization (LXC and Docker®) and Linux command-line interface (CLI) virtual machines for deploying virtualization applications to fully realize the potential of the Marvell ARMADA 8040 processor.
The TS-1635AX features two built-in 10GbE SFP+ ports and two Gigabit (1000BASE-T) ports for high-speed transmission and flexible network deployment. The core functionality of the TS-1635AX can also be expanded by installing two PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0 cards (compatible PCIe cards include the QWA-AC2600 wireless adapter, QM2 M.2 SSD/10GbE adapters, and USB 3.1 Gen2 (10Gbps) adapters).
The TS-1635AX runs the intelligent, app-driven QTS operating system that supports RAID 50/60 and provides features such as Qboost and OCR Converter. For more information and to view the full QNAP NAS lineup, please visit www.qnap.com.
