Mike Sanders / 1 week ago
QNAP has announced the launch of its new high-capacity TS-1655 tower 2.5 GbE NAS that can accommodate twelve 3.5-inch hard drives and four 2.5-inch solid-state drives. Designed with a hybrid storage architecture that balances performance and cost, the TS-1655 integrates 8-core computing power, 2.5 GbE high speed and PCIe expansion to improve business efficiency for cross-team file sharing, collaboration, backup and disaster recovery, and virtualization.
QNAP TS-1655 High-Capacity NAS
The TS-1655 uses an Intel Atom C5125 8-core 2.8 GHz processor that supports Intel QuickAssist Technology (QAT) and comes with four UDIMM DDR4 slots (8 GB preinstalled) that can be upgraded to 128 GB to support higher workloads. Error-Correcting Code memory is also supported to deliver server-grade performance and reliability for rugged enterprise IT environments. By installing a dual-port 25 GbE network card, the TS-1655 delivers outstanding sequential read/write speeds of 3,499/2,465 MB/s.
The TS-1655 provides two 2.5 GbE RJ45 (2.5G/1G/100M) network ports that support port trunking for load balancing and fault tolerance, assisting organizations in bandwidth-demanding applications including virtualization, large file transfers, high-speed backup/restoration, and real-time applications. It can work with QNAP’s managed/unmanaged 2.5 GbE/10GbE switches to establish high-speed, secure, and scalable office network environments without going over budget. The TS-1655 supports SR-IOV and features three PCIe slots for extending NAS capabilities with various expansion cards, such as 5/10/25 GbE network cards, QM2 cards for adding M.2 SSDs or 2.5 GbE/10GbE network ports, Fibre Channel cards for building SAN storage, and storage expansion cards for connecting QNAP storage expansion enclosures.
The reliable and multitasking TS-1655 meets storage demands for security, backup, file sharing, central management, and ensures data protection with Snapshots that provide instant restoration to protect against the impact of ransomware. More business-ready features include: hosting virtual machines and containers, simplifying local/remote/cloud backup tasks, facilitating VMware /Hyper-V VM backup, deploying a cloud storage gateway, creating S3-compatible object storage on the NAS, and much more.
