The TensorEX TS3-264513-NAS is a 3U rack mountable storage server using OpenZFS file system, 256 GB of memory, and up to 4.8 PB of storage capacity. The TensorEX TS3-264513-NAS OpenZFS Storage Controller has been developed and optimised to meet the demand for more powerful, reliable, and flexible storage from businesses today. It is designed to offer a solution that combines the flexibility of unified storage, the performance and efficiency of solid state flash drives, the capacity of hard disks, and the familiarity and simplified management of the FreeNAS user interface. With support for single or redundant storage controllers, a second storage controller can be added later to upgrade to High Availability. The OpenZFS FileSystem supports snapshots, thin provisioning, self-healing filesystem, online capacity expansion, ZFS Stripe, mirror, RAID-Z, RAID-Z2, and RAID-Z3. The TensorEX TS3-264513-NAS also supports popular file-based protocols like CIFS, NFS, AFP, FTP, and WebDAV. Remote administration is achieved via HTTP/HTTPS and REST API. For optimized bandwith, there is support for 10GbE and 8Gb fibre channel interfaces.
