Our rackmount QuTS hero NAS systems have arrived to high acclaim, and now we are rolling out desktop form factor models to cater to small organizations that lack sufficient space for on-premises servers” said David Tsao, product manager for QNAP. “The TS-hx86 is perfect for these organizations to fulfill work-group file sharing with ZFS advantages, to tackle big storage challenges, and provide exceptional IO performance and seamless cross-team collaboration.

TS-hx86 M.2 NVMe slots

The TS-hx86 NAS comes with two 2.5-inch SSD trays and two M.2 NVMe Gen 3 x4 SSD slots, allowing for SSD caching configuration to increase IO/s performance and reduce latency, for databases and virtualization applications. The four 2.5GbE RJ45 ports support Port Trunking and failover, and work with the firm’s managed and unmanaged 10GbE/2.5GbE switches, assisting organizations in implementing high-speed, secure and scalable network environments. Dual PCIe slots are included for extending core NAS functionalities, for example, adding 5GbE/10GbE/25GbE/40GbE network cards; QM2 cards to add M.2 SSDs or 10GbE (10GBASE-T) connectivity; QXP expansion cards to connect the company’s multi-SATA 6Gb expansion enclosures; and entry-level graphics cards to add HDMI output, increase video transcoding/streaming performance, and provide GPU pass-through to Vms.

Powered by the ZFS-based QuTS hero, the TS-hx86 series provides data integrity, self-healing, and supports multiple RAID configurations with triple parity and triple mirror to enhance data protection. Inline data deduplication, compression, and compaction reduce the overall storage footprint – especially for increasing SSD storage efficiency when highly-repetitive data or massive small files are generated, while improving both random write performance and SSD lifespan. QuTS hero supports near-unlimited snapshots and versioning for enhanced data protection. The block-based real-time SnapSync ensures that both the primary and secondary NAS maintain identical data, providing strong support for nonstop business operations.

TS-hx86 Boxafe app

QuTS hero includes an App Center, providing various install-on-demand apps to expand NAS application potential. Available apps allow to host VMs and containers, simplify local/remote/cloud backups, implement a backup solution for Google G Suite˛ and Microsoft 365, set up a cloud storage gateway to deploy hybrid cloud applications, streamline cross-device and cross-team file synchronization, and more.
