QNAP Launches TS-1264U-RP NAS for small businesses

NAS Data Recovery QNAP

Qnap’s TS-x64U series pushes their storage density to the next level. The TS-1264U-RP NAS delivers 12 hot-swap storage bays in a 2U high chassis that’s only 423mm deep so it can be slotted into a small wall cabinet or even placed on a desk. The NAS is fitted with the same 2GHz quad-core Intel Celeron N5105/N5095 CPU as featured in some of its entry-level models such as the 3-bay TS-364.

Memory starts at a modest 4GB of DDR4 which can be boosted to a maximum of 16GB. This doesn’t seem a lot, but the NAS only supports the standard QTS operating system, which is less demanding than Qnap’s memory-hungry QuTS. The QTS delivers a wealth of apps and offers different data backup features.

The Qnap TS-1264U-RP NAS chassis is constructed of solid steel, and the non-lockable drive carriers are equipped with sturdy metal trays. Inside, there is the compact motherboard employing a small passive heatsink for the Celeron CPU and a lightweight plastic air shroud to direct air over it from the 12cm diameter fan behind. Further cooling is provided by a second 12cm fan.

The 4GB of base memory is supplied on a single SO-DIMM module with a second vacant slot above, although users will need to replace it with an 8GB module if they want to upgrade to 16GB. Multi-Gigabit networking is on the menu with dual 2.5GbE ports at the rear, and they are partnered by duets of standard USB 2 and faster USB 3.2 ports with the HDMI port alongside. Further expansion is possible with a spare PCI-E 3 slot, although this is only the x2 variety, so you won’t see the maximum benefits of upgrading to 10GbE speeds.

The Qnap TS-1264U-RP NAS is a good option for space-poor SMBs, but it’s not protected from physical and logical failures that may result in critical business data inaccessibility. Then the owners of the TS-1264U-RP NAS will need to contact a professional data recovery services provider to get their irreplaceable data back. ACE Data Recovery team can successfully recover data from all types of RAID arrays, including NAS of all makes and models. ACE Data Recovery engineers are ready to help the Qnap TS-1264U-RP NAS owners with their data recovery needs.
