QNAP® Systems, Inc. today launched the new REXP-1610U-RP and REXP-1210U-RP expansion enclosures that support 6 Gbps SATA hard drives and SSDs. Designed for expanding the storage space of a QNAP NAS, the new expansion enclosures provide a flexible and budget-friendly solution for organizations to tackle applications with intense data growth (such as archiving, high-resolution media storage, and video surveillance) without needing a large up-front investment.

“The rampant growth of data makes a flexible storage expansion solution a priority for organizations,” said David Tsao, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “QNAP provides a wide range of expansion enclosures with various transmission interfaces and price points, fulfilling the need for higher capacity and lower costs to resolve the needs of data storage and backup.”

The new REXP-x10U-RP series enables plug-and-use convenience for seamless capacity expansion. With the powerful Storage & Snapshots Manager, administrators can easily configure the expansion operations and monitor the health of each expansion enclosure and the disks within them. QNAP NAS also supports missing mode protection to protect data on the expansion enclosures.

The REXP-x10U-RP series performs as a secure and budget backup solution for QNAP NAS. Administrators can back up NAS data to the REXP-x10U-RP on a real time or scheduled basis using RTRR (Real-Time Remote Replication) or rsync, while the support of QJBOD Express (JBOD enclosures roaming) helps migrate data stored on the REXP-x10U-RP to another NAS without needing a network connection.

The REXP-x10U-RP series supports the following QNAP NAS series:
TDS-16489U, TES-x85U, TVS-1582TU, TVS-ECx80U-SAS-RP (R2), TS-ECx80U (R2), TS-ECx79U-SAS-RP, SS-ECx79U-SAS-RP, TS-ECx79U-RP, TS-x79U-RP, TS-x73U/-RP, TVS-x71U/-RP
Note: A SAS storage expansion card (P/N: SAS-12G2E) is required if the NAS does not have Mini-SAS ports.
