Taipei, Taiwan, July 28, 2021 – Following the release of 9 and 12-bay models of the TS-hx77XU QuTS hero NAS series, QNAP® Systems, Inc. (QNAP) today extends the series lineup by introducing higher capacity 16-bay TS-h1677XU-RP and 24-bay TS-h2477XU-RP rackmount models. Designed for small/medium businesses, these new models feature AMD Ryzen™ 7 3700X 8-core processors, two 10GbE ports, PCIe slots, and a redundant power supply to ensure continuous operations. Using the advanced ZFS-based QuTS hero operating system, both NAS deliver business-critical features and enable up to petabyte capacity per shared folder, providing a highly reliable yet cost-efficient NAS solution.

“Taking advantage of ZFS integrity and reliability, the high-capacity TS-h2477XU-RP and TS-h1677XU-RP provide the perfect foundations for building mission-critical and Big Data storage,” said Jason Hsu, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “They are also ideally matched with QNAP’s managed and unmanaged 10GbE switches to form high-speed, secure and scalable network environments without going over budget.”

The TS-h1677XU-RP and TS-h2477XU-RP use the powerful AMD Ryzen™ 7 3700X 8 cores/16 threads 3.6 GHz processor (Turbo Core 4.4 GHz), support AES-NI encryption acceleration and up to 128 GB DDR4 RAM for empowering multi-tasking capabilities and virtual machine performance. Both NAS models include two iSER-enabled 10GbE SFP+ SmartNIC ports, which can work with SSD caching to boost IOPS performance and 10GbE potential for optimizing business virtualization, large file sharing, high-speed backup/restoration, and multimedia editing/transfer. Connectivity can also be increased by installing various PCIe cards, including 10/25GbE network cards for adding network I/O ports, QM2 cards for adding M.2 SSD slots, Fibre Channel cards for SAN storage, and QXP storage expansion cards for connecting storage expansion enclosures. 

QuTS hero focuses on data integrity and features self-healing capabilities. It provides multiple RAID configurations with RAID Triple Parity and Triple Mirror to enhance data protection. Powerful inline data deduplication, compression, and compaction significantly reduce the overall storage footprint while improving both random write performance and SSD lifespan. Supporting up to 65,535 snapshots allows for comprehensive snapshot versioning protection. Additional SSD-optimizing features include Write Coalescing, TRIM, and Pool Over-provisioning to assist in attaining the highest performance and lifespan from SSD investments.

The inclusive App Center provides various install-on-demand apps to further expand the NAS application potential - such as hosting virtual machines and containers, simplifying local/remote/cloud backups, implementing a backup solution for Google™ Workspace and Microsoft 365®, centralizing VMware® and Hyper-V virtual machine backups, setting up a cloud storage gateway to deploy hybrid cloud applications, and much more.
