Product Overview

QNAP TS-EC1280U-E3-4GE-R2 144TB 12 Bay NAS Rack Solution | Installed with 12 x 12TB Western Digital Ultrastar Drives

QNAP TS-EC1280U R2, featuring the easy-to-use QTS operating system, provides a reliable and scalable NAS solution to fulfill data backup, file synchronization and remote access. The TS-EC1280U R2 is 10GbE-ready, delivers exceptional performance, and supports cross-platform file sharing, comprehensive backup solutions, iSCSI and virtualization applications, and many practical business functions, making it the ideal choice for SMBs to secure important business data. It also includes abundant multimedia applications backed by its powerful hardware specifications.

QTS - Simple and efficient

Thanks to QTS’s intuitive user interface, system operations of the TS-EC1280U R2 are smooth and handy. Its intelligent desktop allows you to find the desired functions quickly, create desktop shortcuts or group shortcuts, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, and open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently, bringing greater working efficiency.

Qsirch – A smarter, faster way to search

Quickly and easily find documents, photos, videos, and music with Qsirch, QNAP's new built-in NAS search application lets you find what you need by real-time, natural search. Simply type in as much as you know about what you are trying to find, including bits of the file name or even words/phrases in the document, and Qsirch will display a list of matches, complete with thumbnails, as you type. Qsirch even remembers your search history so you can quickly navigate to files you've previously searched for. Qsirch is a huge productivity boost – it greatly reduces the amount of time spent looking for files on the NAS so you can focus on other tasks.

Breakthrough performance

The TS-EC1280U R2 supports 6Gbps hard drives driving over 3,500 MB/s throughput and 390,000 IOPS*. Featuring with Intel Xeon E3 v3 Quad-Core Processor and 4 GB DDR3 ECC RAM, the TS-EC1280U R2 greatly enhances efficiency of CPU-consuming tasks and serves more concurrent tasks at the same time.

Internal cache port for IO acceleration

The TS-EC1280U R2 supports two on-board mSATA internal cache ports, and up to 4 SSDs can be used for caching. By installing mSATA flash modules (optional purchase), the IOPS performance of storage volumes can remarkably boost. It is perfect for improving overall workflow of random IOPS demanding applications such as database and virtualization. The internal cache port design reserves the space of hard drive tray for more storage capacity.

Removable motherboard drawer for easy maintenance

With the TS-EC1280U R2's removable motherboard drawer, IT administrators have easier access in upgrading/installing components such as RAM, the internal cache and 10GbE adapter. The motherboard itself can be removed and replaced without needing to remove the heavy TS-EC1280U R2 from the rack cabinet, making it especially useful in maintaining the TS-EC1280U R2 in data centers with multiple rack cabinets.

10GbE ready

The TS-EC1280U R2 offers four inbuilt Gigabit Ethernet ports and features two inbuilt 10GbE SFP+ ports to deliver 10 Gigabit high speed network. The 10GbE-ready TS-EC1280U R2 delivers lightening data throughput. Coupled with the support for large storage capacity, the TS-EC1280U R2 is perfect for data centers to storage big data and excel in fast data transmission, and for editing large size videos on-the-fly without transferring the videos between the TS-EC1280U R2 and desktop computers.
