North Charleston, SC, August 29, 2011 --( SimplyNAS, the leader in Network data storage solutions, today further extended its lead in all major storage markets with the announcement of adding new storage systems available from QNAP. The new products include the 10-bay TS-1079PRO and 8-bay TS-879PRO, that include capabilities designed to make it simpler than ever for businesses and organizations of all sizes to harness and exploit the massive amounts of information they generate each day.

QNAP Systems last week announced an expansion of its popular business series desktop Turbo NAS servers with an emphasis on maximum performance. The new TS-879 Pro (8 drive) and TS-1079 Pro (10 Drive), with up to 30TB of online storage, aim to fulfill the massive storage needs of the high-end SMB environments. The new models feature Intel® Core™ i3 CPU to deliver jaw-dropping data throughput over 1,000MB/sec via 10 GbE networking, ideal for network-wide backups, file sharing in mixed Windows®, Mac®, Linux, and UNIX environments, private cloud storage, server virtualization, and high-performance computing applications such as high definition video editing.

The newly announced models are packed with performance, including SATA 6Gb/s support, USB 3.0 ports, and optional 10GbE (super-high 10Gbit/sec throughput) network card. Both models feature hot-swappable drive carriers with support for 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch drives, dual Gigabit LAN ports with failover and load balancing, multiple USB 3.0/2.0 and eSATA ports for high-speed data backup. The new models support RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, 6, 5+ hot spare, 6+ hot spare, 10+ hot spare, single disk, JBOD, and the new Global Hot Spare feature that allows a spare drive to flexibly replace a failed drive on any RAID volume on the NAS for automatic RAID data rebuilding.

The new models feature advanced iSCSI support and can even operate with simultaneous IP-SAN (iSCSI) and NAS functions. The new models are VMware® and Citrix® XenServer Ready and Windows Hyper-V compliant, ideal for network shared storage for virtual server environments.

“Network administrators of high-end SMBs can now rejoice,” said Richard Lee, president of QNAP Systems. “For now there is a viable alternative to the overpriced networked storage that has been previously marketed to the high-end SMB. QNAP’s new TS-879 Pro and TS-1079 Pro delivers uncompromising performance and features at prices sure to make the accountant smile.”

“Advancing the capabilities of storage systems is critical to meeting the challenges brought by the staggering growth of traffic across the internet and new complexities facing data centers today,” said Michael Gray, QNAP Product Manager. “The scalable architecture delivered by the Intel® processor family with advanced storage technologies has enabled QNAP to offer innovative solutions across their product line, top-to-bottom, from small businesses to the largest enterprises.”

To provide cost effective Enterprise Class data protection to SMB, SimplyNAS offers a range of bundled configurations on both the QNAP TS-879PRO and TS-1079PRO. The configurations range from 4TB to a total of 30TB, competitively priced to ensure a rapid return in investment.
