amd-rseries   vm-ready   citrix-ready   windows_2016

 

The TS-963X is an affordable NAS for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with AMD Embedded G-Series GX-420MC quad-core 2.0 GHz processor, 9 drive bays and a built-in 5-speed 10GBASE-T port for up to 10Gb connectivity. Four 2.5-inch drive bays can be used to install SSDs to enable caching and Qtier technology. One built-in 5-speed 10GBASE-T port (10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100M) also increases productivity of businesses with existing Cat 5e/6 cables, without extra costs or additional installation procedures. Combined with several QNAP technologies including VJBOD, Container Station, and Virtualization Station, the TS-963X has the potential to empower a wide range of business applications and can also be easily expanded to fit future data storage requirements.

 

Install up to four SSDs in the dedicated 2.5-inch drive bays to enable SSD caching and Qtier for optimal system performance.

 

 

The built-in 10GBASE-T port empowers mission-critical applications such as databases and virtualization.

 

 

 

The TS-963X can directly host virtual machines and containers, and act as storage for hypervisors such as VMware®, Citrix® and Microsoft® Hyper-V®.

 

 

The Hybrid Backup Sync app completes your backup strategies, allowing you to back up, restore and sync files locally and remotely.

 

 

 

Snapshots add an extra layer of protection to your disaster recovery plans, giving you the flexibility to create and revert snapshots locally and/or remotely.

 

 

 

Besides conventional expansion enclosures, the TS-963X can utilize QNAP's Virtual JBOD technology to use the unused storage capacity of other QNAP NAS.

 

 

 

 

Built-in 10GBASE-T port for accelerated workflows

The TS-963X supports the out-of-box 10 GbE connectivity with a built-in 10GBASE-T port that supports five speeds (10G / 5G / 2.5G / 1G / 100M). The 10GBASE-T port utilizes the Aquantia® AQtion™ AQC107, an enterprise-class multi-gigabit Ethernet controller, which lets you quickly perform more applications such as database transfers, virtual machine storages and big data backups.

 

 

 

Upgrade your IT environment with QNAP's fast and affordable 10GbE Switch!

QNAP 10GbE/NBASE-T™ unmanaged switches allow you to instantly upgrade your network environment at a cost-effective price. With a 10GbE network you can enjoy blazing-fast transfer speeds, empower bandwidth-demanding tasks like virtualization, and enable simultaneous real-time access to large NAS-based files using multiple workstations (ideal for video editing and multimedia). QNAP also provides a 10GbE PCIe network expansion card for Windows®/Linux® PCs to take advantage of high-speed LAN environments.

 

 

Boost performance with SSDs and Qtier

The TS-963X comes with four dedicated 2.5-inch drives bays that are ideal for installing SSDs. With SSDs, you can enable Qtier which offers both tiered storage and cache-like mechanisms for both volumes and iSCSI LUNs. This allows the TS-963X to be further accelerated to meet the performance requirements of demanding applications such as virtualization.

 

.

High-flexibility virtualization and virtual switches

The TS-963X supports versatile virtualization technologies such as containers (LXC and Docker®) and virtual machines (VMs), so you can easily migrate existing applications to or deploy new solutions on the TS-963X. Virtual switches support several modes for connecting containers, VMs, NAS, and physical network interfaces for flexibly deploying business IT infrastructure while ensuring high security.

 

 

Secure your data with snapshots and Hybrid Backup Sync

A complete disaster recovery plan requires multiple layers of data protection and backups. The TS-963X can use snapshots to record the state of files and changes to them at the block level, so you can quickly revert to previous versions should an accident (such as deletion or malware attack) occur. For added data security, the Hybrid Backup Sync app can help back up, restore and sync files to/from local external devices, remote NAS and public cloud services.

 

 

 

Convenient file exchange with cross-platform file sharing and Qsync

The TS-963X supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows, Mac, Linux/UNIX networks. Data can be centrally stored and protected by rigid security measures provided by the TS-963X. The Windows AD and LDAP services enable system administrators to configure user permissions by using an existing Windows AD server, LDAP server or built-in LDAP service. To sync data across devices, including mobile phones and tablets, simply install Qsync Central on the NAS and Qsync clients on other devices to enjoy a fast, private, secure and real-time file sync service.

More apps, endless possibilities

The TS-963X is powered by QTS, an intelligent app-driven operating system that provides key functionality such as Qtier, RAID 50/60 support, Qboost, OCR Converter, and much more. The QTS App Center also provides a wide range of QNAP and trusted third-party apps to boost the functionality and possibilities of the TS-963X, including QVR Pro, Mattermost, Acronis True Image, Domotz, and more.

 

 

Reliable, high-performance storage for virtualization

The TS-963X supports block-based iSCSI LUN that provides a more reliable and isolated environment than file-based LUN. Supporting VMware®, Citrix®, Microsoft® Hyper-V® and Windows Server® 2016, the TS-963X provides a high-performance, reliable and affordable storage solution for virtualization environments. VMware VAAI and Microsoft ODX are also supported to increase performance by offloading server loading for ESXi server and Hyper-V respectively, and supporting QNAP vSphere Client plug-in and QNAP SMI-S provider with enhanced operational efficiency and management in virtualization applications.

 

 

 

 

Create a professional surveillance system

The TS-963X provides an intelligent surveillance management system for managing real-time monitoring, video & audio recording and playback to safeguard your work environment. You can even use USB webcams as affordable IP cameras with the free QUSBCam2 app. The TS-963X also supports QVR Pro, the next-generation QNAP NVR system, that allows you to arrange a dedicated, independent storage space for surveillance data on the NAS and leverage the advantages of scalability and storage manageability from QTS.

Note: QVR Pro supports 8 free channels for surveillance monitoring (expandable to 128 channels with additional channel license purchase).

 

 

Protect your data with encryption and other security features

The AMD Embedded G-Series GX-420MC processor inside the TS-963X features hardware-accelerated encryption, and is capable of encrypting volumes, shared folders, and/or LUN with AES-256 encryption without sacrificing performance. Other security features include 2-step authentication, IP address filtering, virus and malware scanners, and much more. You can also set permissions for users and folders to block access from unauthorized users and apps.

 

 

 

 

Easy expansion for future storage needs

As your business grows, so does your storage requirements. The storage capacity of the TS-963X can be expanded by using QNAP VJBOD technology that allows the TS-963X to be expanded using the unused storage capacity from another QNAP NAS, or by using up to 1 UX-800P and/or UX-500Pexpansion enclosures.
