High-performance NAS for SMB market

The XN5004R is a simple, solid and stylish NAS system which is designed for Workgroup and SMB applications. The XN5004R is powered by specifies hardware 4+2(3.5’’ LFF x4 + 2.5’’ SFF x2) design, with additional onboard two SATA SSD and PCIe slot for blazing performance and capacity expansion that can benefit every workgroup and SMB user.

The PCIe expansion slots give the XN5004R the flexibility to respond to various application demands. Thunderbolt™ 3 and 10GbE/40GbE network adapter cards are supported to greatly enhance the data transmission speeds. And dual-port SAS expansion cards are also supported XN5004R to scale up to 1.9PB with our XN5004R expansion enclosures.

Innovative (4+2)Hybrid Storage Capacity

The innovative mechanical design makes the XN5004R a versatile hybrid storage device. Without affecting existing large form factor slots, the XN5004R positions 2 small form factor bays for SATA SSD at the front side of the system, this way we can ensure that both the demands for capacity and performance can be satisfied.

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 XN5004R is an affordable and reliable storage solution for deploying a 10GbE / 40GbE environment.

Scale-Up Solution

The XN5004R provides massive scale-up capability by connecting any of our expansion enclosures. It can support up to a whopping 198 disk drives or up to 1.9PB of raw storage space when using 10TB HDD drives.
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.
