Users can expand existing NAS storage volumes to petabytes-class by connecting multiple TL-Rx00PES-RP series, without requiring RAID-rebuilding on the host NAS. The TL-Rx00PES-RP series supports SATA drives, allowing businesses to choose from a range of enterprise HDDs. This series is for businesses who want to archive/back up virtualization applications, surveillance recordings, large data, and multimedia.
“Technological advancement usually comes at the cost of increased storage requirements. Organizations which handle particularly large data sets, such as research institutions and media production companies, require easy-to-scale solutions. Qnap presents the TL-Rx00PES-RP series as a petabyte-class storage solution for them. The TL-Rx00PES-RP series supports SATA drives, which are budget-friendly and available with large capacities,” said Jerry Deng, product manager.
The TL-Rx00PES-RP series turn on/off is linked with the host NAS, which helps to reduce hardware management tasks for IT staff. Storage expansion cards QXP-3X8PES (PCIe Gen 3 x8) or the QXP-3X4PES (PCIe Gen 3 x4) are required for the NAS to scale up with the TL-Rx00PES-RP series expansion enclosures.
