QNAP TS-977XU Now Available
QNAP has announced the availability of the TS-977XU AMD Ryzen NAS series, the company’s first 1U hybrid-structure NAS. The TS-977XU is powered by a selection of AMD Ryzen 3 1200 and Ryzen 5 2600 processors with up to 6 cores/12 threads and features redundant power supply models. The new QNAP is equipped with 4x 3.5-inch SATA drive bays for HDDs and 5x 2.5-inch SATA drive bays for SSDs to enable caching and Qtier auto-tiering storage. The TS-977XU also supports QNAP's new software-defined SSD extra over-provisioning, allowing users to allocate additional OP space to SSDs and to attain enterprise-grade performance and lifespan from consumer-grade SSDs.
Equipped with dual Mellanox ConnectX-4 Lx 10GbE network ports, the new QNAP NAS provides users with high-speed connectivity and network deployment flexibility. Moreover, the PCIe slot can be outfitted with a QM2 expansion card, USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps) card, wireless network card or a low-profile entry-level graphics card.
The TS-977XU series can be used to host virtual machines and containers, including snapshots and virtual machine backups support for complete virtualization management. It also supports Virtual QTS, which allows users to run multiple virtual QTS operating systems on a single NAS, providing benefits of resource segregation, flexible application deployment as well as energy, cost and space savings.
