Taipei, Taiwan, April 15, 2020 - QNAP® Systems, Inc. today launched two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C JBOD enclosure models, the 8-bay desktop model TL-D800C and the 12-bay rackmount with redundant power model – TL-R1200C-RP for NAS, PCs, and servers. The multipurpose TL USB JBOD can be used for expanding a QNAP NAS storage space and also serve as storage for PCs and NAS. The TL USB JBOD offers convenient cross-platform file sharing and high flexibility for users, acting as a high-efficiency and intuitive storage expansion option.
QNAP NAS users can use the TL-D800C and TL-R1200C-RP with their NAS, including setting RAID parameters and creating a storage pool using the Storage and Snapshots app in QTS. Alternatively, the TL-D800C and TL-R1200C-RP can be used as a NAS external storage device. Windows®, Mac®, and Ubuntu® users can use QNAP JBOD Manager desktop utility to quickly obtain and view information about the JBOD status, health, fan rotation speed, and check for firmware version updates.
“The latest QNAP USB 3.2 Gen 2 JBOD enclosure offers faster data transfer speed and more capacity than other JBODs on the market, and is compatible with multiple QNAP NAS models, computers, and servers,” said Jason Hsu, Product Manager of QNAP. “QNAP JBOD Manager highly integrates all operating systems for users to quickly obtain information about the JBOD.”
The TL-D800C and TL-R1200C-RP package includes one USB Gen 2 Type-C to Type-A cable, and users can purchase additional USB Gen 2 Type-C to USB Gen 2 Type-C cable for hosts with Type-C interface. TL-D800C and TL-R1200C-RP support remote file transfers allowing users to experience fast and seamless data migration. With the remote file transfer and the JBOD enclosure’s plug and play feature, a TL USB JBOD moved to a different location can instantly work with a host device running on the same operating system making data migration simple and easy.
Users can also treat each disk as an individual external storage space and use it as a removable drive for greater flexibility. The latest TL USB JBOD supports 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch SATA 6 Gbps HDD or SSD, and the rackmount model offers redundant power supply to ensure continuous system uptime.
