QNAP Launches TVS-h1288X and TVS-h1688X ZFS NAS
QNAP has introduced two new network attacks storage solutions in the form of the TVS-h1288X-W1250-16G and TVS-h1688X-W1250-32G NAS. Both models are powered by an Intel Xeon W-1250 six-core 3.3 GHz processor (burst up to 4.7 GHz) and have up to 128 GB DDR4 ECC memory. They also allow for installing two QNAP QXP-T32P Thunderbolt 3 PCIe expansion cards (sold separately) to attain four Thunderbolt 3 ports for high-speed media editing and collaboration. According to the company, the TVS-h1288X and TVS-h1688X NAS satisfy bandwidth-demanding storage and applications for dynamic creative workflows and enterprise operations.
The TVS-h1288X/TVS-h1688X features four 2.5-inch SATA SSD bays and two M.2 NVMe Gen 3 x4 SSD bays, which allows to increase SSD caching IOPS performance and reduce storage volume latency for databases and virtual machine applications. The TVS-h1288X/TVS-h1688X NAS also has the built-in dual-port 10GBASE-T network card (located in the PCIe Gen 3 x8 slot), four native 2.5GbE ports, and offers the support for Port Trunking and failover. It can be paired with QNAP’s affordable managed/unmanaged 10GbE/2.5GbE switches to create productive, secure, and scalable business network environments.
According to the company, PCIe Gen 3 x4 slots provide the ability to upgrade the core functionality of the TVS-h1288X/TVS-h1688X NAS . Users can install two QXP-T32P Thunderbolt 3 expansion cards to connect up to four Thunderbolt-equipped workstations to achieve greater teamwork efficiency in 4K workflows, file storage, backup, and sharing. Alternatively, users can install 5GbE/10GbE/25GbE/40GbE network cards, 32Gbps/16Gbps Fibre Channel cards, QM2 cards to add M.2 SSDs or 10GbE (10GBASE-T) ports, QXP storage expansion cards to connect QNAP JBOD units, or graphics cards (leveraging the 550W power supply unit) to supercharge video editing/transcoding or enable GPU passthrough to virtual machines. The direct HDMI output supports up to 4K @30Hz, providing great benefits for creative users looking to demonstrate their work without requiring a separate computer.
The TVS-h1288X/TVS-h1688X NAS supports data integrity and self-healing. Multiple NAS RAID configurations with Triple Parity and Triple Mirror are also supported to enhance data protection.
The company says that the application potential of the TVS-h1288X/TVS-h1688X can be further expanded by multiple install-on-demand apps and can include hosting virtual machines and containers, simplifying local/remote/cloud backups, enabling Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 backups, centralizing VMware and Hyper-V virtual machines backups, and setting up cloud storage gateways to deploy hybrid cloud applications.
ACE Data Recovery is excited to see new QNAP products and is ready to help the TVS-h1288X/TVS-h1688X NAS owners with their data recovery needs.
