The Vertical NAS Qnap TS-453Bmini Solution Requires Less Space on Your Desktop

Qnap has launched delivery of a vertical NAS under the TS-453Bmini codename.



This storage offers four vertically arranged slots for 3.5” and 2.5” drives with SATA 6 Gbps interface, which significantly minimizes space, occupied by the device. You do not need a screwdriver to fix drivers in sleds. All sections are covered with a common upper lid. The R/W memory slot is located in the basic part of the framework.


One should also highlight the hot swap, RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 arrays formation support and Intel AES-NI hardware encryption with a 256-bit key. The 4-core Celeron J3455 CPU features 4 or 8 GB of DDR3L RAM, distributed over 2 SO-DIMM slots.


The network part consists of two Gigabit Ethernet ports (which can be combined), one USB 2.0, four USB 3.0 ports and an HDMI video output. The 64-bit QTS 4.3 OS supports виртуализацию Linux, Windows, UNIX and Android virtualization, mail and contacts synchronization in a personal cloud.

Processors Intel Haswell to Rival Accelerator NVIDIA Tesla

Intel Corporation has the intentions to introduce DDR4 memory into their server processors of Haswell series. The launch of such technological approach is planned for the 2014, however the developments in this sphere have already started. Intel’s server solutions will become a part of Grantley platform and the samples of their new series will allegedly be announced next autumn. The preview of new processors makes it clear that some of the chips will be distinguished by the increased heat generation performance which will reach 160 W.



Hence, 16-core processors Haswell-EP will rival parallel computing accelerator NVIDIA Tesla but not AMD server solutions. Intel is going to provide various working frequency options and options with different number of active cores. At the same time, TDP will fluctuate within ranges of 160, 145, 135, and 120 W. In its turn, accelerator NVIDIA Tesla, which is based on GK110 processor, consumes approximately 300 W.
