QNAP briefs about QTS 4.3.4 OS and the TS-x77 NAS powered by AMD Ryzen
In a live presentation yesterday, QNAP detailed some of the features in the upcoming QTS 4.3.4 OS for its NAS devices. The latest update to the QTS OS enables snapshot support for ARM-powered NAS for flexible backup and restoration. QTS now supports high-efficiency volume and block-based iSCSI LUN (logical unit numbers) snapshots and easy snapshot management.
QNAP also provided a more closer look at the TS-x77 AMD Ryzen-based NAS, which the company demoed during COMPUTEX 2017. The TS-x77 has support for Ryzen 7 CPUs with configurations up to 8C/16T with a Turbo Core up to 3.7 GHz and support for up to 64 GB DDR4 RAM. The enhanced computational power can benefit virtualization and other I/O intensive applications. There's also support for AMD and NVIDIA GPUs for video editing and playback. QTS 4.3.4 on this NAS will also support 360-degree images and videos for Augmented Reality workflows. All models in the TS-x77 series support 3 PCIe Gen.3 expansion slots and 2 M.2 SATA 6GB/s SSD slots.
QNAP said that the QTS 4.3.4 OS and the TS-x77 NAS will be available from October 2017.
