QNAP has launched the TS-h3077AFU, a high-performance network attached storage (NAS) enclosure that utilizes flash memory. This 30-bay enclosure supports storing large files on the network, with each bay capable of connecting a 2.5-inch drive via SATA.
While the TS-h3077AFU offers fast speed, especially for random queries, it may not provide the most cost-effective storage option when compared to traditional magnetic hard drives and their corresponding network storage solutions.
The TS-h3077AFU utilizes a Ryzen 7000 APU, with either a Ryzen 7 7000 or a Ryzen 5 7000 depending on the model. It supports up to 128 GB of DDR5 RAM in four slots, with ECC memory compatibility. Network connectivity includes two Ethernets with a maximum data transfer rate of 2.5 GBit/s, as well as two 10GBase-T ports.
In terms of expansion, the TS-h3077AFU offers three PCIe slots, each connected via four PCIe 4 lanes. If the first slot remains unused, the second slot offers eight lanes. Additionally, there are two Type A USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports available for connecting expansion housings. With maximum expansion, the system can reach the petabyte range.
The TS-h3077AFU runs on the ZFS-based operating system QuTS hero, which QuTS hero specifically optimizes for SSD utilization. It boasts extremely low latency and microsecond response times, making it suitable for smooth post-production of professional recordings.
Network attached drive enclosure has a cooling system with three 120mm fans and gets powered by two redundant 550W power supplies. It comes with a 10Gb Ethernet cable, 144 flat head screws for 2.5″ drives, and two power cords. Furthermore, QNAP offers a limited 5-year hardware warranty for your peace of mind.
