Qsirch – A smarter, faster way to search
Quickly and easily find documents, photos, videos, and music with Qsirch, QNAP's new built-in NAS search application lets you find what you need by real-time, natural search. Simply type in as much as you know about what you are trying to find, including bits of the file name or even words/phrases in the document, and Qsirch will display a list of matches, complete with thumbnails, as you type. Qsirch even remembers your search history so you can quickly navigate to files you've previously searched for. Qsirch is a huge productivity boost – it greatly reduces the amount of time spent looking for files on the NAS so you can focus on other tasks.
The TS-EC2480U supports 6Gbps hard drives driving over 3,700 MB/s throughput and 410,000 IOPS*. Featuring with Intel® Xeon® E3 v3 Quad-Core Processor and 4 GB DDR3 ECC RAM, the TS-EC2480U greatly enhances efficiency of CPU-consuming tasks and serves more concurrent tasks at the same time.
Internal cache port for IO acceleration
The TS-EC2480U supports two on-board mSATA internal cache ports, and up to 4 SSDs can be used for caching. By installing mSATA flash modules (optional purchase), the IOPS performance of storage volumes can remarkably boost. It is perfect for improving overall workflow of random IOPS demanding applications such as database and virtualization. The internal cache port design reserves the space of hard drive tray for more storage capacity.
Removable motherboard drawer for easy maintenance
With the TS-EC2480U's removable motherboard drawer, IT administrators have easier access in upgrading/installing components such as RAM, the internal cache and 10GbE adapter. The motherboard itself can be removed and replaced without needing to remove the heavy TS-EC2480U from the rack cabinet, making it especially useful in maintaining the TS-EC2480U in data centers with multiple rack cabinets.
The TS-EC2480U offers four inbuilt Gigabit Ethernet ports and supports 10 Gigabit high speed network by installing 10GbE network adapter. The 10GbE-ready TS-EC2480U delivers lightening data throughput. Coupled with the support for large storage capacity, the TS-EC2480U is perfect for data centers to storage big data and excel in fast data transmission, and for editing large size videos on-the-fly without transferring the videos between the TS-EC2480U and desktop computers.
