Taipei, Taiwan, October 26, 2020 – QNAP® Systems, today introduced the lightning-fast NVMe all-flash QNAP TS-h2490FU. With 24 drive bays for U.2 NVMe Gen 3 x4 SSD, the TS-h2490FU provides up to 472K/205K iSCSI 4K random read/write IOPS with ultra-low latency. Equipped with four 25GbE SFP28 and two 2.5GbE RJ45 LAN ports, five PCIe Gen 4 slots, and 1100W redundant power supplies, the TS-h2490FU provides exceptional hardware and connectivity. The ZFS-based QuTS hero operating system also includes powerful applications for data reduction and SSD optimization, ensuring that SSD performance and lifespan is maximized for mission-critical virtualized workloads and data centers with all-flash investments.

“NVMe revolutionizes storage I/O performance and connectivity for eliminating productivity bottlenecks in modern data centers,” said David Tsao, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “the U.2 NVMe all-flash TS-h2490FU is perfect for I/O-intensive and latency-sensitive applications, and leverages the many advantages of ZFS to multiply SSD performance advantages. After comprehensive evaluation, we also recommend Western Digital Ultrastar® DC SN640 NVMe Data Center SSDs for attaining outstanding performance and reliability with the TS-h2490FU.”

“NVMe is having a substantial impact on enterprises and what they can do with data, and Western Digital Ultrastar NVMe SSDs deliver excellent performance, endurance, and reliability for today’s evolving data center workloads,” said Swapna Yasarapu, senior director of data center SSD Flash at Western Digital. “We are pleased to partner with QNAP for their TS-h2490FU NVMe all-flash storage solution to demonstrate how Ultrastar NVMe SSDs can improve storage performance, efficiency, and overall TCO for modern IT infrastructure.”

Armed with 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ 7002 series processors, the all-flash TS-h2490FU delivers groundbreaking performance and ensures 32 Gb/s bandwidth for each individual NVMe SSD. The TS-h2490FU-7302P-128G model comes with two pre-installed Broadcom® dual-port 25GbE SFP28 SmartNICs, allowing for up to 100 Gbps transfer speeds under Port Trunking. Five PCIe Gen 4 slots are included for extending core NAS functionality, for example, adding additional high-speed network interface cards, QM2 cards to add M.2 SSDs, and storage expansion cards to connect QNAP SAS/SATA expansion enclosures to attain petabyte-scale storage capacity.

Powered by the ZFS-based QuTS hero, the QNAP TS-h2490FU focuses on data integrity with self-healing. Data reduction with inline data deduplication, compression, and compaction significantly reduces the overall storage footprint – especially helpful for increasing SSD storage efficiency when highly-repetitive data or massive small files are generated. Additional SSD-optimizing features include Write Coalescing, TRIM, and Pool Over-provisioning to assist in attaining the highest performance and lifespan from your SSD investment. QuTS hero supports near-unlimited snapshots and versioning for enhanced data protection. The inclusive App Center also provides various install-on-demand apps to further expand the TS-h2490FU’s application potential, such as hosting virtual machines and containers, simplifying local/remote/cloud backups, setting up a cloud storage gateway to deploy hybrid cloud applications, and much more.
