QNAP TS-h1290FX: Tower NAS with PCIe 4.0 and U.2 NVMe/SATA introduced

News from QNAP. After the compact 8-bay series QNAP TS-873AeU in April, the manufacturer now introduces the QNAP TS-h1290FX, a powerful NAS in tower design. The TS-h1290FX is QNAP’s first PCIe 4.0 and U.2 NVMe/SATA all-flash NAS and is capable of handling even the most demanding workloads.

QNAP TS-h1290FX in detail

Equipped with AMD EPYC 8/16-core processors, integrated 25GbE and 10GbE connectivity, PCIe Gen 4 expansion, and storage capacity of up to one petabyte, the QNAP TS-h1290FX offers up to 816K/318K iSCSI 4K random read/write IOPS, easily handling the most demanding tasks.

Data-intensive as well as latency-sensitive applications such as transferring large media files, processing 4K/8K media in real-time, and elaborate virtualization applications pose no problems for the NAS.

“Modern businesses and studios shouldn’t have to reserve entire rooms for hot as well as noisy servers, and that’s where the TS-h1290FX comes in. The NAS is housed in a unique tower form factor and uses low-noise cooling,” reveals Jason Hsu, product manager at QNAP.

Slim design, plenty of space

With its slim design, easily scalable storage, and near-silent cooling, the TS-h1290FX is ideal for small and medium-sized businesses and video editing teams for high-speed backup, collaboration, and video editing.

To streamline workflows, the TS-h1290FX provides direct connectivity for up to 20 PCs/workstations when used with QNAP’s PCIe network cards. In addition, the fanless CPU cooler and near-silent 90mm system fan provide effective cooling without distracting noise, making it ideal for integration into modern work environments.

The TS-h1290FX features four PCIe Gen 4 slots for installing various expansion cards. Whether it’s QNAP 2.5/5/25/40/ 100GbE network cards for lightning-fast throughput, an entry-level graphics card to accelerate video editing as well as transcoding, or Edge TPU (Coral M.2 accelerator or Coral USB accelerator) to accelerate AI-powered image recognition.

What’s more, the design is scalable. With expansion enclosures like the TL-D800C or TL-D800S for storage capacities up into the petabyte range, the NAS system can easily grow with you or the business. With the QNAP QDA-UMP4 adapter, the QNAP TS-h1290FX M.2 PCIe Gen4/Gen3 SSD can be used as an affordable alternative to U.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs.

In addition, the NAS is equipped with the ZFS-based QuTS hero operating system, which provides flexible storage management, comprehensive data protection, and optimized performance to streamline mission-critical tasks.
