QNAP announced a new flash-only high-density rackmount NAS, the TS-h1090FU. This new server is a 10-bay unit with support for PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSDs, resulting in high throughput and low latency for heavy workloads. While pricey, the new TS-h1090FU bolsters QNAP’s commitment to flash-based smart storage.
Making full use of ZFS and QNAP’s own SSD optimization technologies, the TS-h1090FU offers impressive performance when the 25Gb networking is taken into account. Whether you need the best NAS for 4K/8K video editing, virtualization, or rapid backup applications, this server has almost everything you’ll require to get started.
The QNAP TS-h1090FU includes 10 drive bays with U.2 NVMe support inside a compact 1U rackmount chassis. The company opted for AMD’s EPYC 7002 series of processors, rocking 12 DDR4 RAM DIMMs (with support for ECC), and can handle 25Gb connections with PCIe expandability for 100Gb super-fast links.
As opposed to the usual NAS offering from QNAP, the TS-h1090FU runs the ZFS-based QuTS operating system. It can enable the server to prioritize data integrity and protection with self-healing storage, snapshots, and versioning. SSD storage has its issues when it comes to heavy deployments and QNAP SSD Antiwear Leveling (QSAL) technology should help prolong eventual SSD failure.
The TS-h1090FU is available with the following specifications:
- TS-h1090FU-7302P-256G: AMD EPYC™ 7302P 16 cores/32 threads processor (up to 3.3 GHz), 256 GB RDIMM DDR4 ECC memory (8x 32 GB)
- TS-h1090FU-7302P-128G: AMD EPYC™ 7302P 16 cores/32 threads processor (up to 3.3 GHz), 128 GB RDIMM DDR4 ECC memory (8x 16 GB)
- TS-h1090FU-7232P-64G: AMD EPYC™ 7232P 8 cores/16 threads processor (up to 3.2 GHz), 64 GB RDIMM DDR4 ECC memory (8x 8 GB)
