Taipei, Taiwan, August 15, 2016 – QNAP® Systems, Inc. today announced the internal testing results of the QNAP TS-831X Turbo NAS and proved that a TS-831X with eight solid-state drives (SSDs) can reach read speeds of 1499MB/s and write speeds of 665MB/s with its all-native SATA 6GB/s ports and integrated dual 10GbE SFP+ LAN ports, making it the perfect solution for high-bandwidth applications.

As SSD are becoming increasingly prevalent on the market due to their falling costs, higher performance, zero noise and low power consumption, they have become the greatest choice for uncompromising I/O performance and 10GbE applications. A TS-831X with eight native SATA 6Gb/s ports allows users to enjoy an SSD cache with no slot position restrictions. Even in a RAID 5 or RAID 6 setup, the full SATA 6Gb/s ports can still ensure the highest throughput performance without internal I/O and data access being constricted by non-SATA 6Gb/s ports.

The QNAP TS-831X is a cost-effective storage solution designed for growing businesses looking for faster data access, backup, restoration, private cloud and to future-proof their IT infrastructure for 10GbE networks.
