Default QNAP Announces Support for HGST 6TB Helium SAS Hard Disk Drives

Taipei, Taiwan, July 17, 2014 – QNAP® Systems, Inc., a professional network attached storage (NAS) provider, today announced that its Enterprise and SMB class Turbo NAS products support the 6TB HGST Ultrastar® He6 helium-filled SAS hard disk drive (HDD). By incorporating HGST’s HelioSeal platform technology, business users receive enhanced NAS performance with maximized storage capacity and low power for reduced total cost of ownership.

The inherent benefit of helium, which is one-seventh the density of air, helps reduce the turbulence caused by spinning disks in a HDD, thereby cutting power consumption and lowering drive temperature, making the HGST Ultrastar He6 HDD an ideal large-capacity 3.5-inch HDD solution for enterprises and SMBs to store and secure growing business data.

The 6TB HGST Ultrastar He6 SAS hard disk is compatible with the Turbo NAS TS-x79U-SAS series, and QNAP expansion enclosures REXP series.

“QNAP constantly strives to provide business users with reliable and scalable NAS solutions for storage, backup, iSCSI and virtualization applications, and many other practical business applications,” said David Tsao, product manager of QNAP. “We are very excited to see that HGST’s revolutionary 6TB He6 HDD can benefit our users by offering high-capacity storage and energy-efficient performance with lower total cost of ownership.”

“The deluge of data is causing enterprise and SMB customers to look for ways to reduce TCO in their storage infrastructures,” said Brendan Collins, vice president of product marketing, HGST. “As the industry’s first HelioSeal helium-filled HDD, our new Ultrastar hard drive is helping QNAP Turbo NAS users solve their increasing storage needs and protect mission-critical business data. By utilizing HGST’s low power, highly reliable 6TB storage solution, QNAP customers can improve storage density in the same footprint, while reducing power and cooling.”

The 6TB HGST Ultrastar He6 SAS hard drives are now available. For more information, please visit:
