QNAP Systems releases new 10GbE-ready TVS-471U Turbo vNAS series, including the TVS-471U-RP and TVS-471U. The TVS-471U series is designed for SMBs to ensure smooth daily file operations with low total cost of ownership. The exclusive QvPC Technology introduces more hands-on usage for directly accessing stored data, monitoring live surveillance feeds, watching multimedia, and much more with a keyboard, mouse, and HDMI display.
The 4-bay rackmount TVS-471U series is powered by Intel Haswell Pentium and Core i3 processors that are capable of providing over 1,500 MB/s throughput and 128,000 IOPS for CPU-intensive tasks including Virtualization Station, serving large numbers of simultaneous connections, and 4K video playback and transcoding. Its two on-board internal cache ports enables users to install mSATA flash modules to further enhance NAS performance for IOPS-demanding applications. The storage capacity of the TVS-471U series can be scaled up to over 1PB by attaching multiple QNAP RAID expansion enclosures (REXP-1600U-RP and REXP-1200U-RP).
“The dual-core TVS-471U series is designed for reliability and scalability, and delivers the performance necessary for operating multiple virtual machines using Virtualization Station and to edit large videos on-the-fly”, said Alan Lin, product manager of QNAP.
With QvPC Technology, users can directly operate the TVS-471U series as cost-effective PC substitutes by simply connecting a keyboard, mouse and HDMI display. By installing Qsirch from the QTS App Center, users can use its near real-time search engine to quickly find the files they need on the TVS-471U series. The TVS-471U series is iSCSI-SAN unified storage with comprehensive business-ready features. It supports VMware®, Microsoft®and Citrix® virtualization solutions to simplify virtual storage management and facilitates cross-platform file sharing for Windows, Mac, and Linux/UNIX platforms. Besides supporting Windows AD, LDAP directory services and Windows ACL for efficient permission settings, the TVS-471U series also acts as a domain controller for Windows.
