ZyXEL Partners With QNAP for 10G Ethernet Powered NAS Solution 
Joint Solution Offers SMBs and Data Centers Operators the Best in
Connectivity, Capacity and Value 
ANAHEIM, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/14/13 --  ZyXEL Communications, a
leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet access,
connected home and routing products, today announced a partnership
with QNAP, a leading commercial Network Attached Storage (NAS)
provider, to create affordable, high performance 10G Ethernet powered
NAS solution packs for small to mid-size companies (SMB). The
solution packs include ZyXEL's XGS1900 series Web-managed smart 10G
Ethernet switches and QNAPs TS-870U-RP NAS appliance.  
Constrained by limited resources, many SMBs utilize affordable
virtualization technology to improve operational efficiency and
maintain data security. Leveraging virtualization enables SMBs to
make better use of their resources -- both infrastructure and staff.
For example, virtualization allows organizations to consolidate
multiple application workloads on fewer physical hosts, immediately
reducing costs and enabling greater efficiency. 
To capitalize on the benefits of virtualization, SMBs need a
lightning fast network and high performance storage solution.
Field-tested to ensure optimal performance, the ZyXEL 10G switches
and QNAP NAS solution pack meets the SMBs unique needs. The joint
solution assures compatibility with a range of virtualization
platforms offering data centers operators the reliability of a robust
solution at an attractive price point.  
"ZyXEL is committed to creating enterprise-class networking solutions
and making them affordable for our SMB customers and profitable for
our channel partners," said Steven Joe, Executive Vice President,
Channel Business, ZyXEL Americas. "We are proud to partner with QNAP
in delivering a 10G powered storage solutions to meet the SMB data
centers' growing demand for network speed and storage capacity." 
Together, the ZyXEL 10G switches and QNAP NAS alleviate network
congestion and deliver back-up and disaster recovery capabilities to
SMBs. This is critical as more connected devices are added to the
network, and the popularity of applications like video processing,
business analytics and multimedia that demand large bandwidths and
big storage keep escalating.  
"QNAP is dedicated to provide network attached storage with
enterprise server applications at an affordable price,"  said Ivan
Hsu, Product Marketing Director of QNAP, Inc. "We are excited to
partner with ZyXEL to further provide our users more value when they
choose our products ."
