This B&H Kit combines the QNAP TS-563 5-Bay Business NAS Enclosure with five 4TB internal hard drives for a total capacity of 20TB.
Built with a tower form factor, the TS-563 is designed for small and medium-sized businesses looking for backup, restoration, private cloud, storage for virtualization, and to future-proof their IT infrastructure for 10GbE networks. The TS-563 runs the QTS 4.1 operating system and provides all-in-one server functionalities as well as features including Virtualization Station, which allows users to run VMs on the same device. It is also able to function with regard to file synchronization, remote access, and home entertainment, for which it can perform on-the-fly and offline video transcoding, including Full HD 1920 x 1080 content.
The TS-563 is powered by a 2.0 GHz AMD G-Series x86 Quad-Core processor, which will allow you to run multiple functions simultaneously. The built-in 2GB of DDR3L RAM, which may be expanded to 16GB, and the 512MB of flash memory allow quick access to frequently-used files and programs. Network connectivity is achieved via the 2 x Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports, which are expandable to either 4 x GbE ports or 2 x GbE + 2 x 10GbE ports. A variety of RAID modes are also supported, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and 5/6/10 + hot spare, which offer data redundancy, speed, or a combination of both.
While this 5-bay enclosure includes five 4TB 3.5" SATA III hard drives, it can also natively house both 3.5" SATA II hard drives and 2.5" SATA III & SATA II hard drives or SSD drives. Screws are included to accommodate both drive sizes. Read speeds of the TS-563 can reach up to 819 MB/s with a 10GbE configuration and data transfer speeds with AES 256-bit full NAS volume encryption can also reach up to 435 MB/s. Using the 5 x external USB 3.0 ports, this QNAP can be connected to other QNAP devices as well as other external drives.
The TS-563 operates using a 250W power supply and 110-240 VAC at 50-60 Hz and 5A. It is compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux, and UNIX. Included are 2 x Ethernet cables, a power cord, 20 x 3.5" HDD flat head screws, 15 x 2.5" HDD flat head screws, and a hard disk tray key.
