Breakthrough performance

The QNAP TS-EC1280U NAS supports 6Gbps hard drives driving over 3,500 MB/s throughput and 390,000 IOPS. The QNAP TS-EC1280U NAS greatly enhances efficiency of CPU-consuming tasks and serves more concurrent tasks at the same time.

Internal cache port for IO acceleration

The QNAP TS-EC1280U NAS supports two on-board mSATA internal cache ports, and up to 4 SSDs can be used for caching. By installing mSATA flash modules (optional purchase), the IOPS performance of storage volumes can remarkably boost. It is perfect for improving overall workflow of random IOPS demanding applications such as database and virtualization. The internal cache port design reserves the space of hard drive tray for more storage capacity.

Removable motherboard drawer for easy maintenance

With the QNAP TS-EC1280U NAS's removable motherboard drawer, IT administrators have easier access in upgrading/installing components such as RAM, the internal cache and 10GbE adapter. The motherboard itself can be removed and replaced without needing to remove the heavy TS-EC1280U from the rack cabinet, making it especially useful in maintaining the QNAP TS-EC1280U NAS in data centers with multiple rack cabinets.

10GbE ready

The QNAP TS-EC1280U NAS offers four inbuilt Gigabit Ethernet ports and supports 10 Gigabit high speed network by installing 10GbE network adapter. The 10GbE-ready TS-EC1280U delivers lightening data throughput. Coupled with the support for large storage capacity, the QNAP TS-EC1280U NAS is perfect for data centers to storage big data and excel in fast data transmission, and for editing large size videos on-the-fly without transferring the videos between the QNAP TS-EC1280U NAS and desktop computers.

Seamless capacity expansion

The QNAP TS-EC1280U NAS supports online capacity expansion by cascading multiple QNAP RAID expansion enclosures to meet the needs of growing business data. With the QNAP scale-up solution, raw storage capacity can be gradually expanded to 840TB. It is especially useful for large data applications, such as video surveillance, data archiving, and TV broadcast storage, to name few.

Powerful QNAP flexible volume

QNAP flexible volume provides a more secure and flexible way to store the NAS data. This next generation volume offers powerful features such as storage pooling with multiple RAID group protection, thin provisioned volume with space reclaim, block-level iSCSI LUN, and online capacity expansion. The QTS Storage Manager neatly presents tools and options for managing system storage which simplifies the process of NAS capacity expansion and QNAP RAID expansion enclosure management.
