The TS-h3088XU-RP is available with either an Intel Xeon W-1250 6-core 3.3 GHz (up to 4.7 GHz) processor or an Intel Xeon W-1270 8-core 3.4 GHz (up to 5.0 GHz) processor, both supporting Intel AES-NI and up to 128 GB DDR4 ECC memory. The pre-installed dual-port 25GbE SFP28 SmartNIC (with NVIDIA Mellanox ConnectX-4 Lx SmartNIC controller) supports iSER and allows for up to 50 Gbps transfer speeds under Port Trunking and optimal ethernet speed with Auto-Negotiation. Three PCIe Gen 3 slots allow users to extend core NAS functionality by adding high-speed network cards, QM2 cards to add M.2 SSDs, Fibre Channel cards for FC SAN storage, and storage expansion cards to connect QNAP SAS/SATA expansion enclosures to attain petabyte-scale storage capacity. The TS-h3088XU-RP also features an HDMI 1.4b port for directly displaying multimedia, virtual machines, or an Ubuntu desktop on a monitor or TV.
Powered by the ZFS-based QuTS hero, the TS-h3088XU-RP prioritizes data integrity with self-healing. Data reduction with inline data deduplication, compression, and compaction significantly reduces the overall storage footprint – especially helpful for increasing SSD storage efficiency when repetitive data or massive small files are generated. Additional SSD-optimizing features include Write Coalescing, TRIM, and Pool Over-provisioning to assist in attaining the highest performance and lifespan from your SSD investment.
The inclusive App Center also provides various install-on-demand apps to further expand the TS-h3088XU-RP’s application potential – such as hosting virtual machines and containers, simplifying local/remote/cloud backups, implementing a backup solution for Google Workspace and Microsoft 365, centralizing VMware and Hyper-V virtual machine backups, setting up a cloud storage gateway to deploy hybrid cloud applications, and much more.
