QNAP Delivers Cost-effective TS-1886XU-RP Auto-tiered NAS Solution for Virtualization and Data-Intensive Enterprise Applications

Technology

QNAP® Systems, Inc., a leading computing, networking and storage solution innovator, today launched the enterprise-grade TS-1886XU-RP NAS. Featuring Intel® Xeon® D-1600 series processors with DDR4 Error Correcting Code (ECC) memory, the TS-1886XU-RP delivers server-grade performance with dependable reliability. The 2U rackmount TS-1886XU-RP serves as a hybrid storage device with twelve 3.5-inch HDD drive bays and six SSD dedicated slots, allowing users to benefit from auto-tiering Qtier technology that optimizes the NAS storage performance and cost-efficiency.

“The TS-1886XU-RP NAS hybrid storage architecture and multiple SSD optimization features make it a highly cost-efficient NAS with enterprise-grade performance,” said David Tsao, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “The feature-rich NAS incorporates features specially designed to help enterprises tackle today’s technology challenges in business environments, including 10GbE connectivity with RDMA/RoCE support, virtualization, backup and disaster recovery, cloud storage gateways, and more.”

The TS-1886XU-RP uses a powerful Intel® Xeon® D processor and supports up to 128 GB dual-channel ECC DDR4 memory to help maintain data integrity. The hybrid storage structure can achieve higher performance and cost-efficiency with multiple QNAP SSD technology, such as SSD caching for optimizing IOPS-demanding applications, and SSD extra over-provisioning for improving SSD random write speeds for business data, data center, and virtualization, while also extending SSD endurance and lifespan. In addition, Qtier enables auto-tiered storage allocation on the TS-1886XU-RP, optimizing the NAS performance and storage utilization.

The TS-1886XU-RP provides four PCIe expansion slots. The pre-installed dual-port 10GbE SFP+ smart NIC uses the Broadcom NetXtreme®-E network controller that supports RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE and RoCEv2) to improve NAS performance while lowering CPU consumption of applications that use an Ethernet network. The 10GbE connectivity not only accelerates data-intensive transmission but also benefits high-speed remote backups via QNAP’s Hybrid Backup Sync (HBS) application. Users can install other PCIe expansion cards to expand NAS functionality, such as 10GbE/25GbE/40GbE network cards, QM2 cards for adding M.2 SSDs, and a SAS expansion card for connecting storage expansion enclosures. Installed with a Fibre Channel card, the TS-1886XU-RP can be added to a Fibre Channel SAN environment to satisfy high-performance storage and backup requirements.

The TS-1886XU-RP is scalable and provides comprehensive business features. It supports storage for VMware®, Citrix®, Microsoft® Hyper-V®, and Windows Server® 2019 virtualization, and hosts multiple virtual machines and containerized apps. The block-based snapshots simplify data protection and restoration, and cloud storage gateways help businesses migrate data to the cloud easily. QVR Pro can help create a professional video surveillance system (offers 8 free IP camera channels that can be expanded to 128 channels through additional license purchases).
