QNAP has announced the launch of the TS-1635AX NAS, the successor to their previous TS-1635.

"Combining all the advantages of its predecessor with today's cutting-edge functionality, the TS-1635AX sets a new benchmark for next-generation storage devices" said Jason Hsu, Product Manager of QNAP.

He says that "supporting snapshots, Qtier 2.0, and virtualisation while ensuring data security, performance, and expansion potential, the TS-1635AX meets various business needs and is perfect for small businesses and organisations."

The TS-1635AX features two built-in 10GbE SFP+ ports and two Gigabit ports for high-speed transmission and flexible network deployment. The core functionality of the TS-1635AX can also be expanded by installing two PCI Express 3.0 cards.

The TS-1635AX runs the app-driven QTS operating system, which supports RAID 50/60 and provides productivity-enhancing features such as Qboost and OCR Converter. The NAS also supports QNAP's proprietary Qtier 2.0 for automatic tiered storage and provides a cache-like mechanism in volumes and LUNs to boost the performance of applications where high-efficiency data access is necessary, such as virtualisation.
