Enable Auto Tiering with Qtier Technology

QNAP’s Qtier Technology empowers the TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 with Auto Tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency. With Auto Tiering, the TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 can automatically move hot data to high-performance storage tiers and cold data to lower-cost, higher-capacity drives, making the TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 an extremely efficient shared resource. Businesses will no longer have to invest heavily in expensive Flash technology, but can still enjoy exceptional application performance and lower TCO of storage from Auto Tiering with the TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2.

12Gbps DataBolt™ AdvantageExcellent performance

The TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 supports 12Gbps SAS drives to provide fast data transmission speeds and drive up to 3,820 MB/s throughput and 268,152 IOPS*. Powered by an Intel® Xeon® E3 v3 quad-core processor with 16GB or 8GB DDR3 ECC RAM, the TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 greatly enhances the efficiency of CPU-demanding tasks and serves more concurrent tasks.

SSD cache acceleration

The TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 features 2 pre-installed 128GB mSATA modules, and there are no limits on using SSDs for caching. By installing high-performance SSDs, the IOPS performance of storage volumes can remarkably boost. It is perfect for improving overall workflow of random IOPS demanding applications such as database and virtualization. The internal cache port design reserves the space of hard drive tray for more storage capacity.

Removable motherboard drawer for easy maintenance

With the TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2's removable motherboard drawer, IT administrators have easier access in upgrading/installing RAM, the internal cache, 40GbE adapter and other components. The motherboard itself can be removed and replaced without needing to remove the heavy TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 from the rack cabinet, making it especially useful in maintaining the TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 in data centers with multiple rack cabinets.

  • Note: The TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 is not hot-pluggable and must be powered-off before removing the motherboard drawer.

Get ready for 40GbE to your TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2

The TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 offers four inbuilt Gigabit Ethernet ports and features two inbuilt 10GbE SFP+ ports to deliver 10 Gigabit high speed network. If 10GbE is insufficient for some workloads, the TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 supports Mellanox® ConnectX-3 Pro adapter cards with 10/40/56 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to deliver the most cost-effective computing and storage Ethernet Interconnection solution. It helps achieve significantly higher throughput for high-performance embedded I/O applications and virtualization acceleration. Businesses can greatly benefit from the fast, flexible storage network of the 40GbE-ready TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 for boosting their mission-critical IT performance.

QTS - Simple and efficient

Thanks to the intuitive user interface of QTS, your NAS experience is smarter, smoother and spectacular. Its modern flat design streamlines loading times, and the intelligent desktop allows you to find desired functions quickly, create desktop shortcuts or group shortcuts, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, and open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently, bringing greater working efficiency.

Volume & LUN snapshot simplifies restoration

QTS Storage Manager adds an easy-to-use web-based snapshot tool for you to easily back up and restore data on the TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 back to any point of time to prevent loss of important data. You can take snapshots for both volumes and LUN, efficiently replicate volume/LUN snapshots to remote servers by copying only the changes made, and quickly clone a volume /LUN snapshot as a local volume without interrupting the current system operation. You can even set up the system to automatically take a snapshot of the volume before backup via RTRR/rsync, even when the file is opened.

Powerful QNAP flexible volume

QNAP's flexible volume provides a more secure and flexible way to store NAS data. This next-generation volume offers powerful features such as storage pooling with multiple RAID group protection, thin provisioned volume with space reclaim, block-level iSCSI LUN, and online capacity expansion. The QTS Storage Manager neatly presents tools and options for managing system storage which simplifies the process of NAS capacity expansion and QNAP RAID expansion enclosure management.
