QNAP has adopted the USB disk module by Apacer Technology for its cloud-based network storage product, the TS-x79 series to ensure stability, security and performance.
Known around the globe for NAS (network attached storage) and NVR surveillance solution, QNAP’s TS-x79 series offers consistent high security, high reliability, easy operation and high efficiency along with guaranteed VMware-ready, Citrix-ready and Microsoft Hyper-V compatible certification.
The TS-x79 series is considered as a superior storage option for high-end SMBs to go for virtualization cloud.
According to David Tsao, Product Manager of QNAP, Apacer’s USB Disk Module (UDM) features electronic data access, shock resistance, compactness, high efficiency and proper functioning under extended temperature (0°C ~ 70°C) in a normal temperature environment, and ensures 100% highly reliable stable performance, making it the prime choice for operating system or OS backup.
Besides compliance with product specifications, QNAP also conducts hundreds of quality inspections and various kinds of environmental tests to select components and parts. Apacer has not only passed such verification but offers unique Fixed BOM after every specification inspection, preventing discretionary changes of firmware and parts.
Jeff Lin, the Value-added Business Unit Director of Apacer explains that the essence of Apacer’s long-term cooperation with QNAP lies in the company’s complete overall support services. QNAP has introduced more than 60 new models in 2012 that adopt Apacer’s USB disk module. Apacer has not only made customisation adjustments and used specific and unique Fixed BOM for strict control, but also preloaded the operating system needed for various models to save customers’ production time.
In the cloud computing era, Apacer has also developed SSD product lines via SATA II/III, PATA, PCIe and other interfaces besides embedded SSDs.
David Tsao added that QNAP Turbo NAS adopts Apacer’s USB disk module as the core system storage, enabling QNAP to create a quality cloud-based storage system and to provide a stable storage solution for enterprises.
