QNAP Systems, a company well known for its data storage solutions, has just announced the introduction of the TS-x69 Pro series of NAS servers which are powered by Intel’s Atom D2700 processors.
The series comprised no less than five models, which can hold between two and eight 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch SATA 6Gbps storage drives.
No matter the model that one goes for, all of QNAP’s new NAS servers are powered by the same dual-core Intel Atom
D2700 processors clocked at 2.13GHz which are paired together with 1GB of DDR3 RAM memory.
According to QNAP
, this configuration enabled its TS-x69 Pro series NAS devices to reach read and write speeds of 220 MB/sec in network trunking mode during the company’s internal tests.
As far as connectivity is concerned, all the models feature dual Gigabit Ethernet ports and also feature built-in USB 3.0 ports, which can be used to attach external storage devices for high speed data backup or immediate storage expansion.
Like most other professional solutions offered by QNAP, the TS-x69 Pro series devices are also certified to VMware Ready, Citrix XenServer Ready, and Windows Hyper-V compliant.
"Shared network storage is becoming an essential infrastructure for businesses,” said Meiji Chang, the general manager of QNAP.
“Incorporating the Intel Atom 2.13 GHz Dual-core processor, the new Turbo NAS series delivers great performance and high reliability with very low power consumption," concluded the company’s rep.
No details regarding the pricing, or the availability, of the TS-x69 Pro series of NAS servers
were made available by QNAP.
Together with the announcement of the TS-x69 Pro series devices, QNAP also demonstrated its latest V3.6 NAS management firmware.
This provides support for some highly anticipated features such as VPN Server, LDAP Server, Proxy Server, while also enabling cloud music and photo sharing via a web browser.
Some enhanced backup features were also introduced together with a version of MyCloudNAS 1.2, QPKG center, and an increased range of compatible IP camera and UPnP routers.
