QNAP Turbo NAS adds enhanced support for virtual environments
Posted on 8-Mar-2013 08:30 | Tags Filed under: News



QNAP Systems, Inc. has announced highly anticipated business features, including VMware VAAI and vSphere Client Plug-in for business virtualization enhancement, the official certification for Windows® Server 2012, and AFP performance enhancement on small file transfer.

The support of VMware VAAI, featuring Full copy, Block zeroing and Hardware-assisted locking, enables data processing offloaded to the Turbo NAS to increase work efficiency. The support of vSphere Client Plug-in allows managing VMware datastores on the Turbo NAS directly from the vSphere Client console, greatly improving productivity of management of multiple virtual machines.

“With these supports, the Turbo NAS becomes a more effective storage in virtualization solution and excels in increasing productivity on managing a great number of virtual machines for IT staffs,” said Jérôme Jaussaud, product manager of QNAP. VMware VAAI and vSphere Client Plug-in are supported by TS-x79, TS-x70, and TS-x69 series.

Selected Turbo NAS series are officially certified for Windows Server 2012, including TS-x79, TS-x70, and TS-x69 series. The combination of QNAP Turbo NAS and Windows Server 2012 creates a cost-effective infrastructure, physically and virtually, for businesses. This update brings boosted performance, flexibility and management efficiency in various virtualization applications with the compatibility of Windows Server 2012.

The Turbo NAS lineup supports AFP (Apple Filing Protocol), enabling Mac computers to connect to the NAS. Now the APF performance on small file transfer is improved with increasing rate as much as 38% in read and 152% in write depending on the processor platform.

VMware VAAI, vSphere Client Plug-in, and the compatibility of Windows Server 2012 are available for the following Turbo NAS models:
TS-EC1679U-RP, TS-1679U-RP, TS-EC1279U-RP, TS-1279U-RP, TS-1079 Pro, TS-EC879U-RP, TS-879U-RP, TS-879 Pro, TS-1270U-RP, TS-870U-RP, TS-869U-RP, TS-869 Pro, TS-669 Pro, TS-569 Pro, TS-469 Pro, TS-269 Pro, TS-469U-RP, TS-469U-SP, TS-869L, TS-669L, TS-569L, TS-469L, TS-269L.
