QNAP’s TS-977XU AMD Ryzen NAS series is the company’s first 1U hybrid-structure NAS. The series provides four 3.5-inch SATA drive bays for hard drives and five 2.5-inch SATA drive bays for SSDs, allowing users to enable caching and Qtier auto-tiering storage and to benefit from QNAP’s revolutionary software-defined SSD extra over-provisioning technology.
The TS-977XU also provides well-rounded virtualization applications, providing businesses and organizations with a highly-efficient and cost-effective storage solution. By combining AMD Ryzen processors with an advanced hybrid storage structure and 10GbE SFP+ connectivity, the TS-977XU packs tremendous performance into a compact 1U frame. The TS-977XU is further enhanced by PCIe expandability, allowing users to expand core NAS functionality as needed to accommodate changing requirements and business growth.
The TS-977XU series is available with AMD Ryzen 3 1200 and Ryzen 5 2600 processors with up to six cores/12 threads. Its hybrid structure allows users to combine the benefits of high-capacity 3.5-inch hard drives and high-performance 2.5-inch SSDs to optimize storage and application performance. The TS-977XU also supports QNAP’s new software-defined SSD extra over-provisioning (OP) that enables users to allocate additional OP space to SSDs – which provides the potential to attain enterprise-grade performance and lifespan from consumer-grade SSDs.
The TS-977XU features dual Mellanox ConnectX-4 Lx 10GbE network ports, providing users with high-speed connectivity and greater network deployment flexibility. A PCIe slot is also available for users to install a QM2 expansion card, USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps) card, wireless network card, or a low-profile entry-level graphics card.
The TS-977XU series can host virtual machines and containers, providing users with greater application potential and for consolidating services into a single machine. Snapshots and virtual machine backups are supported for complete virtualization management.
The TS-977XU-RP (powered by a Ryzen 5 2600 processor) provides a redundant power supply and also supports Virtual QTS, allowing users to run multiple virtual QTS operating systems on a single NAS, providing benefits of resource segregation (CPU, memory, networking), flexible application deployment, and providing energy, cost, and space savings.
The new TS-977XU series is now available. For more information, and to view the full QNAP NAS lineup, please visit www.qnap.com.
