QNAP Releases Multi-platform 4/8/16-bay Desktop TL Series Storage Enclosures
Taipei, Taiwan, April 22, 2020 – QNAP® Systems, Inc. today launched new SATA 6Gb/s JBOD enclosure models: the 4/8/16-bay desktop models (TL-D400S, TL-D800S and TL-D1600S), the 4-bay rackmount model (TL-R400S) and the 12-bay rackmount model with redundant power (TL-R1200S-RP). These storage enclosures are compatible with NAS, PCs and servers, and can be directly attached using SFF-8088 cables if a QXP PCIe card is installed in the NAS/PC/server. The TL SATA JBOD supports multi-lane SATA 6Gb/s transfer, and each SATA lane directly connects to a single SATA drive to help improve performance. With the 1-1 high-speed channel, the TL SATA JBOD delivers excellent transfer performance.
QNAP NAS users can use the TL SATA JBOD with their NAS, including setting RAID parameters and creating a storage pool using the Storage and Snapshots app. Alternatively, the TL SATA JBOD can be used as a NAS external storage device. Windows®, Mac®, and Ubuntu® users can use the QNAP JBOD Manager desktop utility to quickly obtain and view information about the JBOD status, health, fan speed, and check for firmware updates. A TL SATA JBOD can expand the storage space of your QNAP NAS, Windows® and Ubuntu® computers for versatile usage.
“Compared with traditional and expensive SAS JBOD, the TL SATA JBOD provides a high-speed and economic storage expansion solution. The included QXP PCIe expansion card and SFF-8088 cable provide even more convenience for users” said Jason Hsu, Product Manager of QNAP.
The TL SATA JBOD package includes a QXP PCIe card and SFF-8088 cable. The TL SATA JBOD supports 3.5-inch/2.5-inch SATA 6Gb/s drives, with the TL-R1200S-RP featuring a redundant power supply to ensure maximum system uptime.
