Recently, while doing research on the best NAS hardware, I came across the new QNAP model codenamed TS-h1290FX. This particular NAS model comes with a very impressive hardware portfolio. The model is not only one of the most powerful on the market, but also has a really attractive and eye-catching design. The new TS-h1290FX is equipped with an AMD EPYC™ 16 core 7302P/8 core 7232P processor and built-in 25GbE connectivity, and can tackle the heaviest of workloads.
The NAS is available in three versions: 64G, 128G, 256G.
TS-h1290FX-7232P-64G: AMD EPYC™ 7232P/7252 8-core/16-thread processor, up to 3.2 GHz, 64 GB RDIMM DDR4 ECC (8 x 8 GB).
TS-h1290FX-7302P-128G: AMD EPYC™ 7302P 16-core/32-thread processor, up to 3.3 GHz, 128 GB RDIMM DDR4 ECC (8 x 16 GB).
TS-h1290FX-7302P-256G: AMD EPYC™ 7302P 16-core/32-thread processor, up to 3.3 GHz, 256 GB RDIMM DDR4 ECC (8 x 32 GB).
How much does QNAP TS-h1290FX-7232P-64G cost? The retail price for the 64G version is $4,899.00.
How much does QNAP TS-h1290FX-7302P-128G cost? The retail price for the 128G version is $6,999.00.
How much does QNAP TS-h1290FX-7302P-256G cost? The retail price for the 256G version is $8,399.00.
The operating system of the TS-h1290FX is called QuTS hero and qualifies as an advanced OS system. QNAP’s QuTS hero operating system combines the app-based QTS with a 128-bit ZFS file system to provide flexible storage management, comprehensive data protection and optimized performance to meet the needs of business-critical applications.
Note: Intrigued by the extremely powerful hardware of QNAP products, I want to see how the software compares so, in the coming days, mariushosting will be testing the QTS operating system on a 2Bay-QNAP NAS for the first time since starting this blog.
