QNAP

As the data value and volume of business data continue to rise, corporations need high-performance storage solutions which are secure, reliable, and easy to manage. The QNAP® TS-EC1679U-RP, which serves as both IP-SAN (iSCSI) and NAS, can be easily utilized in different business and enterprise applications such as backup center, disaster recovery, file sharing, virtualization, and video editing storage.

Highlights

  • NAS, iSCSI, IP-SAN storage solution
  • Scale up Storage Over 400TB Raw Capacities
  • VMware, Citrix and Hyper-V ready
  • High performance, secure, reliable, and simple
  • 10 GbE ready reaching over 1,000 MB/s and 100,000 IOPS
  • SSD cache acceleration
  • Multi-core processor, DDR3, SATA 6Gb/s, and USB 3.0

Simple

The TS-EC1679U-RP features the easy-to-use QTS 4.0 operating system , and provides a user-friendly web GUI that allows administrators to easily manage the NAS so there is no need for an extensive knowledge of complex commands. Simple management tools such as instant SMS/Email alert, the hard drive S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) feature, and system resource monitor are provided to keep administrators up-to-date on their NAS at all times.

Secure

Data might seem insecure being open in a network, but the QNAP® TS-EC1679U-RP offers a variety of security options such as encrypted access, IP filtering, policy-based automatic IP blocking, and more. In addition, full control of the NAS is offered down to the user and folder access rights to determine who can access the NAS and what can or cannot be accessed. The TS-EC1679U-RP is packed with security features to stop all unauthorized data access such as AES-256 volume-based encryption. The AES-256 volume-based encryption prevents sensitive data from unauthorized access and data-breach even if the hard drives or the device is stolen.

Scalable

As your business grows, so will your data. TS-EC1679U-RP supports online capacity expansion by cascading multiple QNAP RAID expansion enclosures. With the QNAP scale-up solution, hundreds of Terabyte raw capacity is supported and it is especially useful for large data applications, such as video surveillance, data archiving, and TV broadcast storage.

Reliable

The TS-EC1679U-RP is reliable with built-in safety precautions to safeguard all data from any unforeseen problems. With multiple built-in features to guarantee no interruptions to the work flow of a business, the TS-EC1679U-RP is an efficient asset. The advanced RAID configurations and hot-swap capabilities are included to give RAID performance, protection and reduced rebuilding time. Moreover, the dual OS embedded on the DOM architecture ensures the system will boot up. If one of the two operating systems fails, the healthy operating system will boot up and operate normally while repairing the failed operating system. The dual Gigabit LAN ports can also be configured for failover which allows the NAS server to sustain the failure of one network port and still provide continuous services.

High Performance

The TS-EC1679U-RP features Quad Core Intel® Xeon® E3-1225 Processor, 4GB DDR3 memory, 10 Gigabit network capability, and 6Gb/s SATA. Even the most demanding requirements in data center or corporate networks can be satisfied by the TS-EC1679U-RP. With outstanding data transfer rate of over 1,000 MB/s data throughput and 100,000 IOPS 1, intensive business applications and concurrent tasks can be easily fulfilled.

      

Scale up Storage Over 400TB Raw Capacity

Simply connect QNAP RAID expansion enclosures to the TS-EC1679U-RP and power it on. TS-EC1679U-RP will detect the hard drives in the RAID expansion enclosures as newly installed local drives.
