QNAP Systems, Inc., a leading computing, networking, and storage solution innovator, today launched the TS-h1290FX NAS. Providing QNAP's first PCIe 4.0 and U.2 NVMe/SATA all-flash NAS in a tower form factor, the TS-h1290FX excels in the most demanding work environments such as collaborative high-resolution video workflows. Featuring AMD EPYC 8/16-core processors, built-in 25 GbE and 10GbE connectivity, PCIe Gen 4 expansion, and up to petabyte-scale storage capacity, the TS-h1290FX provides up to 816K/318K iSCSI 4K random read/write IOPS for tackling data-intensive and latency-sensitive applications, such as large media file transfer, real-time editing of 4K/8K media, and virtualization applications.
"Modern businesses and studios shouldn't need to dedicate entire rooms to accommodate hot and loud servers, and that's where the TS-h1290FX comes in. Contained within a unique tower form factor and utilizing quiet cooling is exceptional performance driven by a server-grade processor, all-flash U.2 NVMe SSD storage, and QNAP's enterprise-grade QuTS hero operating system," said Jason Hsu, Product Manager of QNAP, adding "the TS-h1290FX is a remarkable storage solution that provides exceptional power to deal with the modern demands of businesses and studios - including high-resolution media editing and online collaborative workflows."
With a sleek design, easily scalable storage, and near-silent cooling, the TS-h1290FX is ideal for small/medium businesses and video editing teams for high-speed backup, collaboration, and video editing workflows. It is fully compatible with mainstream software solutions and can tackle bandwidth-demanding challenges such as real-time 4K/8K video editing and collaborative editing. To streamline workflows, the TS-h1290FX offers direct connectivity for up to 20 PC/workstations when used with QNAP's PCIe network cards. Its fanless CPU cooler and near-silent 90 mm system fan also provide effective cooling without distracting noises, making it ideal for integrating into modern work environments.
The TS-h1290FX has four PCIe Gen 4 slots that allow for installing various expansion cards for expanding application potential: QNAP 2.5/5/25/40/100 GbE network cards for lightning-fast throughput; an entry-level graphics card to accelerate video editing and transcoding. The TS-h1290FX offers a scalable design to accommodate business growth by connecting expansion enclosures (such as the TL-D800C or TL-D800S) for up to petabyte-scale storage capacity. And with the QNAP QDA-UMP4 adapter, the TS-h1290FX can use M.2 PCIe Gen4/Gen3 SSD as a cost-effective alternative to U.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs.
The TS-h1290FX comes with the ZFS-based QuTS hero operating system to provide flexible storage management, comprehensive data protection, and optimized performance to streamline business-critical tasks.
