Taiwanese network attached storage (NAS) vendor QNAP has introduced the TS-2888X, an AI-ready NAS that combines hybrid storage and a ready-to-use software environment. 

Built using next generation Intel Xeon W processors with up to 18 cores and employing a hybrid storage architecture with eight hard drives and twenty high-performance SSDs, the TS-2888X also supports installing up to 8 graphics cards and runs QNAP’s AI developer package, QuAI. 

“Compared with typical AI workstations, the TS-2888X combines high-performance computing with huge-capacity storage to greatly reduce latency, accelerate data transfer, and to eliminate  performance bottlenecks caused by network connectivity,” said David Tsao, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “integrating AI-focused hardware and software reduces the time and complexity for implementing and managing AI tasks, making the TS-2888X the ideal AI solution for most organisations.”

The TS-2888X also introduces a comprehensive software environment for organisations to easily set up and maintain AI applications, according to QNAP. Besides the exclusive QuAI, QNAP’s Container Station enables a range of open-source tools and frameworks for the AI workflows readily available to users.

Lastly, the TS-2888X features flexible backup tools and snapshot protection to ensure data security while also allowing efficient disaster recovery.
