QNAP launches TDS-h2489FU NAS with two CPUs, 24 bays, and 25Gb

QNAP just outed a 24-bay NAS with insane features.

QNAP just announced a monster of a network-attached server. The impressive QNAP TDS-h2489FU NAS has support for two processors, up to 24 NVMe SSDs, and 25Gb networking. That’s a serious list of specifications and is considered a new flagship for the company, boasting an iSCSI 4K random read IOPs score of more than a million with low latency.

In order to hit this level of performance, QNAP made this NAS all-flash, meaning each drive bay accommodates an NVMe SSD. To keep up with the all-flash storage, there are two Intel Xeon Silver 4300 CPUs installed and the 25Gb SFP28 LAN connectivity ensures you’ll be able to transfer data to and from the NAS without delay.

If you’d prefer to utilize RJ45, four 2.5Gb ports are also available. Two PCIe Gen 4 slots are ready for expansion cards and to provide power all of this tech is a 1200W redundant power supply. This NAS will run QNAP’s ZFS-based QuTS hero operating system.

So, who’s this NAS designed for? Those who require impressive data speeds, which can be handy for video editors. There’s also impressive support for virtualisation largely due to the ability to install up to 1TB of DDR4 RAM. QNAP managed to squeeze all this kit inside a 2U rackmount chassis.

For expansion, two M.2 PCIe Gen 3 slots are ideal for Intel Optane or other enterprise-grade SSDs, and two PCIe Gen 4 slots (one with the aforementioned dual-port 25Gb NIC) are available for extending the list of specifications.
