The TS-873U-RP 8-Bay NAS Enclosure from QNAP is a 2 RU rackmount NAS and iSCSI-SAN unified storage solution for small and medium businesses that are looking for private cloud, cross-platform file sharing and collaboration, efficient backup/restoration, and storage for virtualization. It features dual 10GbE SFP+ ports and two M.2 2280 SATA III 6 Gb/s SSD slots, both of which help provide efficient storage for virtualization, on-the-fly media editing, and sharing, plus support for tiered storage configurations and cache acceleration.
The TS-873U-RP is powered by a 2.1 GHz AMD RX-421ND Quad-Core processor, which will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously and features a max boost speed of up to 3.4 GHz. The 64GB of DDR4 RAM has a configuration of 4 x 16GB and will allow quick access to frequently used file and programs. Network connectivity is achieved using the two 10GbE ports and four Gigabit Ethernet ports which support multiple port trunking, including failover. There is also support for JBOD, single disk, and a variety of RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10, and 5/6/10+hot spare, each of which offers data redundancy, speed, or a combination of both.
This 8-bay enclosure has the ability to natively house both 3.5" and 2.5" SATA III hard drives or SSD drives, and screws are included that accommodate each drive size. With both 10GbE ports in use, the TS-873U-RP can deliver sequential read speeds of up to 1567 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 1353 MB/s. When using both 10GbE ports with volume encryption, sequential read speeds top out at 1187 MB/s and write speeds deliver up to 1315 MB/s. Using the two external USB 3.0 Type-A ports and four external USB 2.0 Type-A ports, this QNAP NAS can be connected to other devices, such as QNAP expansion units. In addition to its AES-NI encryption, there is also AES 256-bit encryption, which helps to prevent sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breaches.
QNAP's TS-873U-RP 8-Bay NAS Enclosure operates using dual 250W power supplies that run using 100-240 VAC @ 50/60 Hz. Included are two Ethernet cables, two power cords, 32 x 3.5" HDD flat head screws, 24 x 2.5" HDD flat head screws, and an M.2 SSD installation kit. Protection is provided by a limited 2-year warranty.

When the TS-873U-RP is paired with one UX-1200U-RP Expansion Enclosure, users will have access to up to 20 drives, or add a second UX-1200U-RP for up to 32 drives. Using one UX-800U-RP will give users access to 16 total drives, and adding a second UX-800U-RP provides access to up to 24 drives.
If you want to remove the 10GbE card and install a 12 Gb/s SAS expansion card (SAS-12G2E), the REXP-1220U-RP and REXP-1620U-RP can be paired with the TS-873U-RP. Up to 8 REXP-1620U-RP units can be used for access to up to 136 hard drives, while up to 8 REXP-1220U-RP units provides access to up to 104 drives.
