Product Description

The TS-563 is a powerful network storage system powered by a high-performance AMD quad-core processor. It uniquely provides the potential for 10GbE expandability at a budget price to maximize ROI, and doubles the encrypted file transfer performance with the AES-NI hardware-accelerated encryption engine to over 400 MB/s. Powered by the QTS operating system, the TS-563 provides versatile all-in-one server functionalities as well as unique features including Virtualization Station, which allows users to run VMs on the same device. The TS-563 is designed for small and medium-sized businesses looking for backup, restoration, private cloud, storage for virtualization, and to future-proof their IT infrastructure for 10GbE networks. The TS-563 is equipped with an energy-efficient 64-bit AMD quad-core 2.0 GHz processor with 2GB/8GB DDR3L-1600 RAM (upgradable to 16GB), SATA 6Gb/s, and two Gigabit LAN ports (expandable to either 4 x GbE ports or 2 x GbE + 2 x 10GbE ports) for lightning-fast multi-tasking performance with SSD cache support. The TS-563 is a powerful NAS that delivers up to 819 MB/s sequential read throughput with one 10GbE configuration. The TS-563's hardware-accelerated encryption engine provides unmatched encryption performance in its class, up to 435 MB/s with AES-256 bit full NAS volume encryption, boosting system performance & security while ensuring the safety of sensitive business data stored in the TS-563.
