AMD has announced that its Embedded G-Series system-on-chip (SoC) will be
powering the new TVS-863+ and the TVS-x63 platform from QNAP, a leading
provider of network attached storage (NAS) systems. The platform, designed
for small to medium-sized business (SMB) and small office / home office
(SOHO) customers, is a leader in its class. The TVS-x63+ series is also an
affordable option for 4/6/8-bay SMB NAS servers that feature10GbE support
and hardware-accelerated encryption, says the company.

“The new QNAP NAS system based on the AMD Embedded G-Series SoC exemplifies
AMD’s continued dedication to innovation on embedded solutions,” said Scott
Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager, AMD Embedded Solutions.
“NAS is a great application for the AMD G-Series SoC, taking advantage of
the strong compute, low-energy consumption, and integrated GPU for display
and acceleration.”

The AMD Embedded G-Series SoC (previously codenamed Steppe Eagle) offers
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 graphics processing unit (GPU) and I/O controller on the same
die.

“The AMD Embedded G-Series SoC is ideal for SMB and SOHO network storage
needs,” said YT Lee, vice president, QNAP. “It provides a low-power platform
with exceptionally high performance at an affordable price point. This
feature-rich platform provides ideal cost-performance ratio for business
users.”

QNAP TVS-x63+ series Turbo vNAS is powered by a cutting-edge AMD quad-core
2.4GHz processor with 10GbE capability, and features a hardware-accelerated
encryption engine with over 400MB/s throughput, legendary AMD Radeon
graphics, and AMD-V virtualisation support. It is loaded with features and a
leader in its class, and can effectively lower the operational costs and
increase productivity when used in 24/7 business applications, says the
company.
