Highly Efficient NAS Solution – QSAN XN8024R

XN8024R-Right-45   XN8024R-Back-View

Ingenious NAS Systems

The XN8024R Series is a next generation, highly efficient NAS system which is designed for enterprise applications. The XN8024R is powered by Intel® Kaby Lake processors and up to 128GB of DDR4 ECC RAM.

The PCIe expansion slots give the XN8024R the flexibility to respond to various application demands. 10GbE network adapter card is supported to greatly enhance the data transmission speeds, and two onboard SAS 12Gb/s wide ports are also supported for scalability with our expansion enclosures.

Modulization Hardware Platform Design

XN8024R is designed in Modular System. All major components are customer replaceable units, providing IT easy upgrade and maintenance. The N+1 System components are fully redundant, cable-less and hot-swappable FRUs (field-replaceable units) design, including controller, power supplies, fans and host cards.

XN8024R has the highest flexibility among XCubeNAS series. Onboard connectivity supports 10GbE port for data service connectivity and 12Gb/s SAS-3 wide ports, the latest 12Gb/s SAS Technology, for capacity expansion.  XN8024R equipped two optional host card slots, supporting up to x8 10GbE ports increase flexibility and performance based on your demand.

Optional Dual Port Thunderbolt 3.0 Adapter Card

Thunderbolt™ 3 adapter card (XN-TB302) is an add-on card for QSAN XCubeNAS series*. You can create lightning throughput and reliable connectivity between QSAN NAS storage systems and a workstation, MacBook or iMac directly with the QSAN Thunderbolt™ 3 solutions.

In addition to the lighting throughput, the Thunderbolt™ 3 ports can directly be attached to the QSAN XCubeNAS series products for expanding client’s data storage capacity or hook up as an external device for fast data backup to the QSAN NAS. Thunderbolt™ 3 is not only a reliable data transmission tunnel but also provides more than a 100% increase in bandwidth than the 2nd generation.

QSAN XCubeNAS with a Thunderbolt™ 3 adapter is an ideal solution for throughput demanding applications such as video editing and production, music production, digital photography editing, high-speed external device data backup to NAS and more…

Optional High-Speed 10G/40G Adapter Card

A 10GbE/40GbE (10 Gigabit/ 40 Gigabit Ethernet) network is essential for businesses that demand high bandwidth for virtualization, and fast backup and restore for an ever-growing amount of data. The XN8012R is an affordable and reliable storage solution for deploying a 10GbE / 40GbE environment.
