QNAP introduces the TS-2477XU-RP, which features iSER and PCIe expandability. This completes the TS-x77XU series Rackmount NAS series. Previously published models with 8, 9, 12 and 16 slots, now it is a 24-bay version. At the heart of the NAS are AMD Ryzen processors with up to 8-cores/16 threads.

Thus, the TS-2477XU-RP delivers performance that, according to QNAP Systems, makes it possible to meet the virtualization needs of enterprises. The NAS is available with a Ryzen 5 2600 or a Ryzen 7 2700 processor. This makes it suitable for many different applications and scenarios. These include desktop and server virtualisation, but also on-the-fly video transcoding and private cloud infrastructure.

The T-2477XU-RP

QNAP Systems has equipped the TS-2477XU-RP with four PCI Express (PCIe) slots. This allows users to expand the NAS capabilities with network adapters, USB 3.1 Gen 2 cards, M.2 SSD cards and graphics cards. In addition, QNAP provides the NAS with an 800 W power supply, which supports a graphics card that needs extra power.

The TS-2477XU-RP is above all suitable for virtualization. This is possible in VMware, Citrix and Windows Server 2016 environments with the support of iSER. It is also possible to host virtual machines and containers as an all-in-one server and the TS-2477XU-RP supports snapshots and virtual machine backups for full virtualization management.

In addition, the TS-2477XU-RP also supports RAID 50/60 to balance capacity, security and performance. This offers better protection and random disk performance. The TS-2477XU-RP also has a redundant power supply, which makes it possible to keep critical applications running 24/7.

Finally, a new version of the NAS operating system QTS has been released. This is built into the TS-2477XU-RP, which therefore contains the QTS App Center. It contains many hundreds of apps that help expand the NAS capabilities while at the same time helping to achieve productivity gains.

The TS-2477XU-RP is available immediately.
