QNAP Systems Inc introduced its new higher-performance SSD models on Nov. 29.
The TS-451S Turbo NAS, a 4-bay NAS that is optimized for high-density 2.5” SSDs and features an Intel Celeron 2.41GHz processor is the answer to the booming development of SSDs and the growing demands from users, QNAP said.
“Users can enjoy numerous benefits when using SSDs in a Turbo NAS, including a smaller physical size to host at least four SSDs, higher-density storage capacity, RAID 5 configuration for data protection, quieter system operations, a home theater multimedia experience with the HD Station, and the exclusive QvPC Technology that allows the Turbo NAS to be used as a PC, said Jason Hsu (許博傑), product manager of QNAP.
The SS-x53 Pro series (SMB models that are optimized for high-density SATA 6Gb/s 2.5” SSDs), meanwhile, have been renamed the TS-453S Pro (4-bay) and TS-853S Pro (8-bay) respectively to assist users in quickly recognizing different options in the same product category. The TS-x53S Pro series can also work silently and reliably with 2.5” hard drives as well, QNAP said.
“The new SSD NAS series features an exclusive hardware design that allows users to easily upgrade their RAM to enjoy smoother multi-tasking operations, especially for heavy users who run lots of multimedia applications,” Hsu said.
He said that the TS-451S will be distributed to QNAP’s worldwide sales channels immediately and should be available for end users within a month.
