Network attached storage manufacturer and solution provider QNAP has introduced new external SAS NAS expansion cards for its range of hardware in the form of the QXP-1620S and QXP-820S. Both cards can be flexibly configured to fit various usage applications. By managing multi-path or link aggregation between a NAS and expansion units, data transfer loads are effectively balanced, and users can avoid interrupting system services and prevent backup failures.
Simply install the cards into a QNAP NAS, to enable connection to TL SAS JBOD storage enclosures and REXP expansion units to expand their total storage capacity. Multiple expansion units can be daisy-chained via high-speed mini SAS HD cables to expand the total storage capacity up to 4.6PB.
“SAS-based storage solutions provide low-latency, power-efficiency, and IOPS-optimized storage capabilities and are ideal for creating highly-reliable IT environments for virtualization, surveillance, Big Data, video editing, and TV broadcast storage. By installing a QXP-1620S or QXP-820S in your NAS, you can upgrade your IT environment to take advantage of the high-performance, high-availability and high-reliability of SAS.” said Stanley Huang, Product Manager of QNAP.
The QNAP QXP-1620S and QXP-820S SAS storage expansion cards are now available to purchase directly from the QNAP online store.
