QNAP 10 Gbe switch: QSW-1208-8C
The QNAP QSW-1208-8C is a 12-port 10GbE unmanaged switch, allowing you to instantly upgrade your network environment at a cost-effective price. It supports 10GBASE-T and NBASE-T standards, which means you can take advantage of higher network speeds with your existing Cat 5e and 6a cables. Both SFP+ (fiber) and RJ45 (copper) ports are available (with 8 combo ports) for servicing a range of network needs.
Compliant with IEEE 802.3az (Energy Efficient Ethernet, EEE), the QSW-1208-8C is energy efficient as well. A Rackmount Kit is also included at no extra cost for installing the QSW-1208-8C in a rack.

2 new 9-bay models for a 5-bay price: TS-932X and TS-963X
The business-class TS-932X is a budget-friendly NAS designed to accommodate five 3.5-inch hard drives and four 2.5-inch SSDs. It is also the first ARM-based NAS that supports Qtier™ technology for efficient auto-tiered storage. As a 9-bay NAS, the compact TS-932X takes up less desktop space compared with other models in the same class, and presents a stylish control panel embellished with brushed-metal aluminum. Featuring dual 10GbE SFP+ ports, the TS-932X provides an excellent blend of speed and affordability to future-proof your IT infrastructure for 10GbE networks.
The TS-963X is an affordable NAS for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with AMD Embedded G-Series GX-420MC quad-core 2.0 GHz processor, 9 drive bays and a built-in 5-speed 10GBASE-T port for up to 10Gb connectivity. Four 2.5-inch drive bays can be used to install SSDs to enable caching and Qtier technology. One built-in 5-speed 10GBASE-T port (10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100M) also increases productivity of businesses with existing Cat 5e/6 cables, without extra costs or additional installation procedures. Combined with several QNAP technologies including VJBOD, Container Station, and Virtualization Station, the TS-963X has the potential to empower a wide range of business applications and can also be easily expanded to fit future data storage requirements.
QM2 adds SSD caching/auto-tiering support to your QNAP Nas
QM2 series PCIe cards add support for M.2 SSDs to a QNAP NAS, allowing users to configure SSD caching, a caching pool, or an auto-tiering volume to improve overall NAS performance. It doesn’t occupy any 3.5-inch drive bays, allowing you to maximize both your storage capacity and performance.
- M.2 SSDs* can be installed to form caching pools or an auto-tiering volume.
- Enables SSD caching to boost performance and optimizes storage efficiency with Qtier Technology**.
- M.2 SSD thermal sensors allow real-time M.2 SSD temperature monitoring.
- A quiet cooling module (heatsink and smart fan) minimizes overheating risks and sustains constant high performance.
- LED indicators for monitoring M.2 SSD status.
