The TS-1277XU-RP is an enterprise-tier NAS solution from QNAP. This versatile and high-capacity NAS features 12 SSD-ready bays, and it packs up to 64 GB of RAM. It boasts a processing capacity of six cores and 12 threads, and it features Turbo Core technology that can deliver up to 3.9 GHz of processing power. In addition, you can customize the TS-1277XU-RP using this innovative NAS system's four Generation 3 PCIe slots, which provides you with the ability to make your NAS wireless or cache SSDs with greater efficiency. Since it's loaded with the latest version of QTS server management software, the TS-1277XU-RP comes with all of the software solutions you need to optimize your NAS for whichever applications you have in mind.
Ryzen Processing Power
The various models within this line of NAS systems are equipped with either AMD Ryzen 5 2600 or AMD Ryzen 3 1200 processors. Each of these processors features AES-NI encryption acceleration, which delivers incredible processing power while saving energy. If you're planning to run resource-heavy applications like virtualizations or private clouds, the Ryzen line can provide you with processing power to spare.
Super Powered RAM Capacity
The TS-1277XU-RP line can admit up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM, which means that you can run practically unlimited numbers of processes with this innovative NAS system. While you may not feel like you could ever use that much RAM, the more RAM that you install, the more wiggle room you have for storage upgrades and unanticipated applications.
Dual-Channel Memory for Optimized Power Consumption
In addition to its sheer RAM capacity, the TS-1277XU-RP features another exciting RAM-related feature: Since it offers dual-channel memory technology, it handles your RAM access more fluidly than other NAS solutions. Dual-channel memory pairs two of your RAM slots to leverage power consumption more efficiently, which can provide a significant advantage when you're managing complex virtual environments that process workloads that are constantly shifting.
Go Wireless with PCIe Slots
The TS-1277XU-RP features four Generation 3 PCIe slots, which means that your opportunities for customization with this NAS system are practically endless. For instance, you can add a Wi-Fi card to your server to free it from corded restrictions and allow it to communicate directly with devices that aren't hardwired to your network. This feature allows you to share the network resources of your NAS with multiple devices, and QNAP's native Wi-Fi card (QWA-AC2600) interfaces seamlessly with WirelessAP Station, which is preloaded with the QTS network management software from QNAP.
Qtier 2.0 Technology for Maximized SSD Performance
This NAS solution's PCIe slots also allow you to install a QNAP QM2 card, which optimizes M.2 SSD handling. In particular, this card takes SSD caching to a whole new level, which rockets your read and write speeds into the stratosphere. The QM2 card helps you manage demanding applications like virtualization with ease, and it interfaces fluidly with the Qtier 2.0 technology that is included with your TS-1277XU-RP NAS. This updated version of Qtier optimizes SSD tiered storage by creating a reserved space that works as a cache, and Qtier 2.0 works with M.2 SSD, SSD, and SATA drives. If you combine a QM2 card with the TS-1277XU-RP 's native Qtier technology, your input/output throughput will flow like a dream.
Application and Use Case
The TS-1277XU-RP is best applied in medium-scale enterprise applications with 100 employees or more. Since it boasts a relatively large power supply and GPU compatibility, it is equipped for sharing A/V projects throughout your team, but its versatility also makes it perfectly equipped to serve as a basic data management and backup system. The entry-level TS-1277XU-RP-1200-4G-US MSRP is $2,499, and MSRP of the high-end TS-1277XU-RP-2600-8G-US model is $2,799.
