Overview
  • 1Description

The TS-EC1679U-RP 16-Bay NAS Server for SMBs from QNAP is an ultra-high performance, 16-bay NAS server with ECC memory for high-end small to medium businesses. The TS-EC1679U-RP Server serves as both IP-SAN (iSCSI) and NAS that can be easily utilized in different business and enterprise applications such as backup centers, disaster recovery, file sharing, virtualization and video editing storage.

The server features ECC RAM modules for high reliability and can detect and correct errors introduced during transmission or storage of data. It offers higher protection in mission critical applications. The server is VMware, Citrix and Hyper-V ready compliant.

Secure
The TS-EC1679U-RP offers a variety of security options such as encrypted access, IP filtering, policy-based automatic IP blocking and more. In addition, full control of the NAS is offered including folder access rights to determine who can access the NAS and what can or cannot be accessed. The AES-256 volume-based encryption prevents sensitive data from unauthorized access and data-breach even if the hard drives or the device is stolen
Reliable
The TS-EC1679U-RP is reliable with built-in safety precautions to safeguard all data from any unforeseen problems. Multiple built-in features guarantee no interruptions to the work flow of a business. The advanced RAID configurations and hot-swap capabilities are included to give RAID performance, protection and reduced rebuilding time. Moreover, the dual OS embedded on the DOM architecture ensures the system will boot up. If one of the two operating systems fails, the healthy operating system will boot up and operate normally, while repairing the failed operating system. The dual Gigabit LAN ports can also be configured for failover, which allows the NAS server to sustain the failure of one network port and still provide continuous services
Simple
Setting up local or remote access with the TS-EC1679U-RP is easy and does not require any IT skills. All setup processes have been simplified so that most of the process is either automatic or can be completed by an installation wizard. The user-friendly web GUI allows administrators to easily manage the NAS, so there is no need for an extensive knowledge of complex commands. Simple management tools such as instant SMS/E-mail alert, the hard drive S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) feature and system resource monitor are provided to keep administrators up-to-date on their NAS at all times
High Performance
The TS-EC1679U-RP features quad core Intel Xeon E3-1225 processor, 4GB DDR3 memory, 10 Gigabit network capability and 6Gb/s SATA. Even the most demanding requirements in data center or corporate networks can be satisfied by the TS-EC1679U-RP. With outstanding data transfer rate of over 1,000 MB/s, data throughput and 100,000 IOPS 1, intensive business applications and concurrent tasks can be easily fulfilled
NAS + iSCSI/IP-SAN Solution for Server Virtualization
With increasing virtualization of IT resources, the need for high performance storage is more essential than ever. The TS-EC1679U-RP offers class-leading system architecture matched with 10 GbE networking performance designed to meet the needs of demanding server virtualization, such as VMware, Citrix and Windows Hyper-V. 10 GbE network speeds greatly increase the agility of data transmission in a virtualized environment intensifying NFS and iSCSI connection performance
High Network Bandwidth
The TS-EC1679U-RP offers network expansion options which include dual-port 1 GbE and dual-port 10 GbE network expansion cards, to aggregate and boost network performance. The TS-EC1679U-RP includes four Gigabit (GbE) LAN ports which can be expanded up to eight GbE LAN ports or four 10 GbE LAN ports plus six GbE ports
ECC RAM for High Reliability
The ECC (Error Correction Codes) RAM of the Turbo NAS can detect and correct errors introduced during transmission or storage of data. It offers more protection in mission critical applications
Blazing Fast Data Backup via USB 3.0
The TS-EC1679U-RP features two USB 3.0 ports for high speed backup to external hard drives. EXT3, EXT4, NTFS and HFS+ file systems are supported to ensure compatibility with Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux operating systems

The integrated antivirus solution for the Turbo NAS ensures business continuity by offering protection against the latest viruses, malware, worms and Trojan horses
Windows Active Directory (AD) and LDAP Directory Service
The Windows AD and LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) directory service features enable the system administrator to retrieve user accounts from Windows AD or LDAP-based directory server to the TS-EC1679U-R, reducing time and effort in account setup. Users can use the same login name and password to access the TS-EC1679U-RP
Shared Folder Aggregation
You can access the shared folders of other servers on Microsoft networking through the "portal folder" on the TS-EC1679U-RP. This saves time and effort to log in multiple servers one by one
ISO File Archiving and Sharing
The TS-EC1679U-RP supports mounting ISO images of CD and DVD discs as network shares for data archiving, storage and sharing. This feature saves the space for storing physical discs, reduces the risk of data loss caused by disc wearing and tearing as well as enhances the efficiency of data sharing on business network
Centralized Log Monitoring
