Taipei, Taiwan, July 12, 2017 - QNAP® Systems, Inc. today announced the new business-class AMD-powered TS-x73U series NAS; available in 8, 12 and 16-bay models with single and redundant power supply options. With a high-performance AMD Embedded R-Series RX-421ND quad-core CPU (2.1 GHz base, 3.4 GHz boost), a pre-installed dual-port 10GbE SFP+ network card, and two M.2 SATA 6Gb/s SSD slots (for empowering SSD caching to realize optimized storage efficiency with Qtier™ technology), the rack-mountable TS-x73U series is ideal for business organizations looking for a secure private cloud and efficient IT infrastructure for 10GbE networks.

With a dual 10GbE configuration, the TS-x73U series is capable of delivering up to 1,567 MB/s throughput, while the accelerated encryption engine with AES-NI enables unmatched encryption performance of up to 1,244 MB/s to boost system performance. Coupled with high scalability, the 10GbE-ready TS-x73U series satisfies virtualization and fast backup/restoration requirements for an ever-growing amount of data that demands higher bandwidth, and facilitates day-to-day operations with greater productivity.

“QNAP expands its AMD NAS lineup with the rackmount TS-x73U series, providing the excellent power of the R-Series CPU along with 10GbE readiness at a reasonable price for budget-conscious organizations,” said Jason Hsu, Product Manager of QNAP.

The TS-x73U series is a comprehensive NAS and iSCSI-SAN storage solution, supporting VMware®, Citrix®, Microsoft® Hyper-V® and Windows Server® 2012 R2, and more advanced virtualization applications. With Virtualization Station, users can host multiple Windows, Linux®, UNIX® and Android™ virtual machines on a single NAS, and utilize Container Station that integrates LXC and Docker® technology to benefit from abundant application containers or to initialize microservices with the hands-on QIoT Containers.

The TS-x73U series is a multifaceted NAS that provides professional solutions for data storage, backup, sharing, and centralized management. It supports seamless file sharing across Windows, Mac®, and Linux/UNIX, Qsync cross-device synchronization, Windows AD/LDAP directory services and Windows ACL, domain controller for Windows, Windows/Mac backup, Snapshot, and data recovery with RTRR, rsync and cloud backup. The built-in QTS App Center is fully packed with smart apps that help boost productivity, including Qfiling for automated file organization, Qsirch for instant file searching, QVPN for setting a VPN server/client, Browser Station for accessing private network resources, IFTTT Agent for productive workflow automation, QVR Pro for building a video surveillance solution, and much more.

The TS-x73U series is scalable by connecting QNAP expansion enclosures (REXP-1620U-RP, REXP-1220U-RP, UX-1200U-RP, UX-800U-RP). The storage capacity can also be expanded by using VJBOD (Virtual JBOD) that leverages the unused storage capacity of other QNAP NAS, providing a reliable, high-capacity storage solution to tackle the rampant growth of data from high-resolution media, virtualization, and surveillance videos.
