AMD has revealed that its Embedded G-series SoC will enable the TVS-863+ and the TVS-x63 platform from QNAP, a provider of network attached storage (NAS) systems. The platform is intended for small to medium-sized business (SMB) and small office/home office (SOHO) customers. The TVS-x63+ series is also a very affordable option for 4/6/8-bay SMB NAS servers that boast 10GbE support and hardware-accelerated encryption, added the company.

The AMD Embedded G-series SoC (previously codenamed "Steppe Eagle") claims to offer QNAP a platform with a high performance quad-core 2.4GHz processor, up to 16GB RAM support, integrated security with hardware encryption engine, and a discrete-class GPU and I/O controller on the same die.

QNAP TVS-x63+ series Turbo vNAS is powered by an AMD quad-core 2.4GHz processor with 10GbE capability, and features a hardware-accelerated encryption engine with over 400MB/s throughput, AMD Radeon graphics and AMD-V virtualisation support. It can also effectively lower the operational costs and increase productivity when used in 24/7 business applications, noted AMD. The platform offers customers centralised data storage, sharing, backup and management, along with comprehensive business applications.

In addition, the platform features high-speed 10GbE for fast business data backup, sharing and video editing; fast 256bit full AES NAS encryption performance for enhanced data security; QNAP QvPC technology for running multiple virtual machines with 4K display support; and professional network video recorder system for real-time monitoring, recording, playback, alarm notifications and Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) to safeguard business assets and property when used with supported IP cameras. The platform also flaunts on-the-fly and background video transcoding with hardware acceleration and dual HDMI connectivity with 7.1-channel HD audio pass-through for video enthusiasts.

QNAP's TVS-x63+ series Turbo vNAS will be available later this month in most retailers.
