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-EC879U-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.
The TS-EC879U-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.
Data might seem insecure being open in a network, but the QNAP® TS-EC879U-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-EC879U-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.
As your business grows, so will your data. TS-EC879U-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.
The TS-EC879U-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-EC879U-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.
The TS-EC879U-RP features Intel® Xeon E3-1225 3.1GHz Processor, 4GB DDR3 ECC 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-EC879U-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.
Simply connect QNAP RAID expansion enclosures to the TS-EC879U-RP and power it on. TS-EC879U-RP will detect the hard drives in the RAID expansion enclosures as newly installed local drives. The storage capacity of the TS-EC879U-RP can be expanded seamlessly by using the powerful QTS Storage Manager.
The maximum raw storage capacity available by connecting RAID expansion enclosures:
|Turbo NAS Model||RAID Expansion Enclosure||No. of RAID Expansion Enclosures||Total HDD No.
(NAS + Enclosures)
|Max. Raw Capacity (TB)|
The TS-EC879U-RP supports SSD caching which can greatly boost IOPS performance of storage volumes. It is perfect for improving overall workflow of IOPS demanding applications such as virtualization.
With increasing virtualization of IT resources, the need for high performance storage is more essential than ever. The TS-EC879U-RP offers class-leading system architecture matched with 10 GbE networking performance designed to meet the needs of demanding server virtualization, such as VMware®, Citrix®, and Windows® Hyper-V. 10 GbE network speeds greatly increase the agility of data transmission in a virtualized environment intensifying NFS and iSCSI connection performance.
The Virtualization Station transforms the TS-EC879U-RP into a 2-in-a-box NAS that can function as an all-in-one NAS and a virtualization platform supporting multiple operating systems, fast virtual machine creation, virtual machine import/export, snapshot, and enables desktop operations on web browser. With the easy-to-use interface, you can centrally manage all virtual machines created on the TS-EC879U-RP with least efforts. Furthermore, you can download VMs on demand from the online VM markets and import them to TS-EC879U-RP to use directly without any complex procedure.
Note: TS-EC879U-RP with 32GB RAM is required
The TS-EC879U-RP offers network expansion options which includes dual-port 1 GbE and dual-port 10 GbE network expansion cards, to aggregate and boost network performance. The TS-EC879U-RP includes two Gigabit (GbE) LAN ports which can be expanded to four GbE LAN ports or two 10 GbE LAN ports plus two GbE ports.
The ECC (Error Correction Codes) RAM of the Turbo NAS can detect and correct errors introduced during transmission or storage of data. It offers more protection in mission critical applications.
