QTS - Simple and efficient

Thanks to QTS’s intuitive user interface, system operations of the TS-EC1280U-RP are smooth and handy. Its intelligent desktop allows you to find the desired functions quickly, create desktop shortcuts or group shortcuts, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, and open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently, bringing greater working efficiency.

Breakthrough performance

The TS-EC1280U-RP supports 6Gbps hard drives driving over 3,500 MB/s throughput and 390,000 IOPS. Featuring with Intel Xeon E3 v3 Quad-Core Processor and 4 GB DDR3 ECC RAM, the TS-EC1280U-RP greatly enhances efficiency of CPU-consuming tasks and serves more concurrent tasks at the same time.

Internal cache port for IO acceleration

The TS-EC1280U-RP 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 TS-EC1280U-RP'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-RP from the rack cabinet, making it especially useful in maintaining the TS-EC1280U-RP in data centers with multiple rack cabinets.

10GbE ready

The TS-EC1280U-RP offers four inbuilt Gigabit Ethernet ports and supports 10 Gigabit high speed network by installing 10GbE network adapter. The 10GbE-ready TS-EC1280U-RP delivers lightening data throughput. Coupled with the support for large storage capacity, the TS-EC1280U-RP 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 TS-EC1280U-RP and desktop computers.

Seamless capacity expansion

The TS-EC1280U-RP 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 700TB. 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.

Cross-platform file sharing, centralized data storage

The TS-EC1280U-RP supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows, Mac, Linux/UNIX networks. Data, logs and ISO image of CDs and DVDs can be centralized store in the NAS and protected by integrated antivirus solution. The Windows AD and LDAP services enable system administrators to configure user permissions by using existing Windows AD server, LDAP server or NAS build-in LDAP service.

Well-rounded backup solutions to secure data

The TS-EC1280U-RP offers well-rounded backup solutions as a reliable backup center. QNAP NetBak Replicator supports scheduled and real-time data backup on Windows OS. Mac Time Machine is also supported to provide Mac OS X users with an effortless solution to back up data to the TS-EC1280U-RP.

Disaster recovery solutions brings peace of mind

The TS-EC1280U-RP offers various data recovery options. RTRR (Real-Time Remote Replication) supports real time or scheduled data backup to a remote Turbo NAS or FTP server and synchronizes files to a remote folder from a local folder with better backup efficiency and reduced backup time. The TS-EC1280U-RP also supports rsync protocol to back up data to another remote server on scheduling basis. Besides, data can be backed up to cloud storage, such as Amazon S3, Amazon Glacier, Microsoft Azure, ElephantDrive, Symform, Dropbox and Google Drive, and restored to the TS-EC1280U-RP anytime.
