Why ES NAS

The Challenges Enterprise Face Today

Platform virtualization that was once only possible on expensive mainframes has become an indispensable core technology for enterprise IT

Using OpenStack to build a private cloud has become a recent trend in corporate IT architecture

Dilemma of high-cost SSD and high-capacity NL-SAS

The pursuit of uninterrupted operation and high data availability

Enterprises spend massive amounts of money to build out baseline architecture suitable for a VDI deployment

What is ES NAS

Built for Business-critical Applications

The Enterprise ZFS NAS, featuring the brand-new QES (QNAP Enterprise System) operating system. Both the software and hardware architecture were built from the ground up to completely support virtualization environments. It is easy to use, has a low learning curve, and the fastest deployment speed.

4 Reasons Why ZFS Rocks

Copy-on-write:

This technique ensures that data is always consistent on the disk, when data is changed it is not overwritten — it is always written to a new block and checksummed before pointers to the data are changed.

Data Integrity:

The file system uses a 256-bit checksum, which is stored as metadata, can detect phantom writes, misdirected reads and writes, DMA parity errors, driver bugs and accidental overwrites

Data Self-healing:

ZFS’s near bullet-proof data integrity provides self-healing feature that can repair silent data corruption which occurs in mirrored volumes.

RAIDZ:

RAIDZ gets around “write hole” issue by using a variable width stripe, so every write is effectively a full stripe write. This, together with ZFS's copy on write characteristic, eliminates the RAID 5 write hole completely 

Warranty and SimplyNAS Replacement Services (SRS):

Field-replaceable Unit (FRU) applies not only to the controllers but also to the cooling fans, power supplies, and the BBU battery pack for CF2 (Copy-to-Flash), providing a cost-effective way to maintain complex systems and to replace defective parts.

Coupled with SimplyNAS Replacement Services (SRS) customers can be up and running in no time if any of the replacement parts fail. Call us to today to discuss your requirements and what we can do for you.Call one of our NAS experts TDODAY 407-960-4690

Dont buy diskless

We got the no disk version and had issues getting disks that were compatible so sent it back to SimplyNAS they installed drives and tested - save yourself the trouble and time wasting

Good but can be better

The QNAP Dual controller NAS is good but over priced for what it is. We have installed in our office and the performance is average we expected higher we purchased the diskless model and installed our own 3TB SAS

Faulty and recovered

We ordered a diskless received it as faulty, simplynas got it swapped out for us and once we got a new one we were able to proceed. Disappointed it was faulty but recovered well. Works well in HA mode

Great Dual Controller solution

We did a staged fail over and the ES1640dc continued to work with one controller - impressed . Great performance as well with 32GB upgraded per controller
