The Qnap TS-1679U-RP Dubai features Intel Core Xeon i3-2120 processor, 4GB DDR3 memory, 10 Gigabit network capability and 6 Gb/s SATA.


Qnap TS-1679U-RP Dubai

The Qnap TS-1679U-RP Dubai 16-Bay NAS Server for SMBs is an ultra-high performance 16-bay NAS server for high-end small to medium businesses. The TS-1679U-RP Server serves as both IP-SAN (iSCSI) and NAS that can be easily utilized in different business and enterprise applications such as backup center, disaster recovery, file sharing, virtualization and video editing storage. The server is VMware, Citrix and Hyper-V ready compliant.



The Qnap TS-1679U-RP Dubai offers a variety of security options such as encrypted access, IP filtering, policy-based automatic IP blocking and more. In addition, full control of the NAS is offered down to you and folder access rights to determine who can access the NAS and what can or cannot be accessed. The TS-1679U-RP is packed with security features to stop all unauthorized data access such as AES-256 volume-based encryption. The AES-256 volume-based encryption prevents sensitive data from unauthorized access and data-breach even if the hard drives or the device is stolen


The Qnap TS-1679U-RP Dubai is reliable with built-in safety precautions to safeguard all data from any unforeseen problems. With multiple built-in features to guarantee no interruptions to the work flow of a business, the TS-1679U-RP is an efficient asset. The advanced RAID configurations and hot-swap capabilities are included to give RAID performance, protection and reduced rebuilding time. Moreover, the dual OS embedded on the DOM architecture ensures the system will boot up. If one of the two operating systems fails, the healthy operating system will boot up and operate normally while repairing the failed operating system. The dual Gigabit LAN ports can also be configured for failover which allows the NAS server to sustain the failure of one network port and still provide continuous services


Setting up local or remote access with the Qnap TS-1679U-RP Dubai is easy and does not require any IT skills. All setup processes have been simplified so that most of the process is either automatic or can be completed by an installation wizard. The user-friendly web GUI allows administrators to easily manage the NAS so there is no need for an extensive knowledge of complex commands. Simple management tools such as instant SMS/E-mail alert, the hard drive S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) feature and system resource monitor are provided to keep administrators up-to-date on their NAS at all times

High Performance

The Qnap TS-1679U-RP Dubai features Intel Core Xeon i3-2120 processor, 4GB DDR3 memory, 10 Gigabit network capability and 6 Gb/s SATA. Even the most demanding requirements in data center or corporate networks can be satisfied by the TS-1679U-RP. With outstanding data transfer rate of over 1,000 MB/s data throughput and 100,000 IOPS 1, intensive business applications and concurrent tasks can be easily fulfilled

NAS + iSCSI/IP-SAN Solution for Server Virtualization

With increasing virtualization of IT resources, the need for high performance storage is more essential than ever. The Qnap TS-1679U-RP Dubai offers class-leading system architecture matched with 10 GbE networking performance designed to meet the needs of demanding server virtualization, such as VMware, Citrix and Windows Hyper-V. The 10 GbE network speeds greatly increase the agility of data transmission in a virtualized environment intensifying NFS and iSCSI connection performance

High Network Bandwidth

The TS-1679U-RP offers network expansion options which include dual-port 1 GbE and dual-port 10 GbE network expansion cards, to aggregate and boost network performance. The TS-1679U-RP includes four Gigabit (GbE) LAN ports which can be expanded up to eight GbE LAN ports or four 10 GbE LAN ports plus six GbE ports

Blazing Fast Data Backup via USB 3.0

The Qnap TS-1679U-RP Dubai features USB 3.0 ports for high speed backup to external hard drives. EXT3, EXT4, NTFS and HFS+ file systems are supported to ensure compatibility with Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux operating systems

Windows Active Directory (AD) and LDAP Directory Service

The Windows AD and LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) directory service features enable the system administrator to retrieve user accounts from Windows AD or LDAP-based directory server to the TS-1679U-R, reducing time and effort in account setup. You can use the same login name and password to access the TS-1679U-RP

Shared Folder Aggregation

You can access the shared folders of other servers on Microsoft networking through the “portal folder” on the TS-1679U-RP. This saves the time and effort in logging in multiple servers one by one

ISO File Archiving and Sharing

The Qnap TS-1679U-RP Dubai supports mounting ISO images of CD and DVD discs as network shares for data archiving, storage and sharing. This feature saves the space for storing physical discs, reduces the risk of data loss caused by disc wearing and tearing as well as enhances the efficiency of data sharing on business network

Centralized Log Monitoring

A central repository of log data from various network devices allows efficient management and security auditing in businesses. QNAP Syslog server allows the IT administrator to effectively collect and store logs of other network devices in the Qnap TS-1679U-RP Dubai.
