The internal cache port design reserves the space of hard drive tray for more storage capacity.
Combat the Ever Increasing Threat of Ransomware with QNAP’s Snapshot
Ransomware has become a rising threat against business users because it targets computers and network-based devices. Consequently, snapshot is a must-to-have feature for modern storage systems. QNAP's storage-level snapshot* helps protecting your folders, files, and iSCSI LUN. In the event of malware attack or unwanted changes, your stored data can be revert and restored to a specific point in time.
Check out the difference between QNAP's snapshot feature compared to the other brands' NAS on the market.
*Minimum 4GB memory is required to enable snapshot on QNAP NAS with QTS 4.3.3 or an older version. Starting from QTS 4.3.4, minimum memory requirement is 1GB.
Removable motherboard drawer for easy maintenance
With the TVS-ECx80U-SAS-RP R2's series removable motherboard drawer, IT administrators have easier access in upgrading/installing RAM, the internal cache, 40GbE adapter and other components. The motherboard itself can be removed and replaced without needing to remove the heavy TVS-ECx80U-SAS-RP R2 series from the rack cabinet, making it especially useful in maintaining the TVS-ECx80U-SAS-RP R2 series in data centers with multiple rack cabinets.
