Product Information

QNAP furthers its innovation into the field of business servers and introduces the TDS-16489U, a powerful Double Server that integrates an application server and storage server into one chassis. The TDS-16489U is powered by dual Intel® Xeon® E5 processors with RAM expandable to 1TB and with a server-grade hardware design that optimizes mission-critical tasks and boasts unrivaled performance for Big Data computing. Coupled with Auto Tiering support, 12Gb/s SAS drives and 40GbE readiness, the TDS-16489U performs as an efficient, scalable and unrivaled unified and tiered storage solution for businesses to fulfill cross-platform file sharing, backups, iSCSI & virtualization applications, and everyday practical business needs.

Business-ready Double Server – fulfilling computing and storage in one box

When it comes to virtualization deployment, it usually requires high-performance application servers and high-capacity storage servers to build suitable environments. 10GbE or 40GbE networks are necessary to connect virtualization environments to storage via iSCSI or NFS protocols. QNAP’s powerful TDS-16489U combines all of these features into one box as an all-around Double Server. You can run multiple guest OS such as Windows® and Linux® with Virtualization Station, containerized apps with Container Station, and directly store all the data on the TDS-16489U through the internal 12Gb/s SAS interface, saving more money and space as a one-device solution with exceptional application performance and lower TCO of storage.

Independent SAS 12Gb/s controller increases I/O performance

Instead of using a SAS controller with expanders to utilize the full capacity of supported drives on a single controller, the TDS-16489U adopts multiple SAS controllers to streamline the architecture with improved connectivity and performance. The TDS-16489U has three LSI 12Gb/s SAS controllers, with each controller supporting 7 ports of 12Gpbs SAS, for connectivity with up to 16 HDDs and 4 SDDs, ensuring each controller can fully utilize the maximum bandwidth to optimize performance and reliability.

Graphic card support for virtualization

PCIe Gen.3 x 16 slot supports AMD Radeon™ R7 and R9 Series Graphics Cards for GPU passthrough to virtualization applications. The IOMMU allows the attached AMD GPU to be given to specific virtual machines to power the image and motion processing from the guest OS when running multiple virtual machines for graphic applications.

10 / 40GbE card support

The TDS-16489U is a 40GbE-ready solution for maximizing performance via iSCSI or NFS protocols to tackle potential bottlenecks for dramatically-changing and loaded virtualization computing environments.

PCIe SSD NVMe for cache acceleration

NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) is an advanced interface/protocol developed for SSDs attached through the PCIe bus. The TDS-16489U supports PCIe SSD NVMe to provide up to 10 times faster IOPS performance and to decrease I/O latency 3 times, improving the overall workflow of random IOPS demanding applications.

12Gb/s SAS HBA support

A 12Gb/s SAS HBA can be inserted to provide two 12Gb/s mini SAS interfaces for connecting 12Gb/s SAS-enabled expansion enclosures (REXP-1620U-RP and REXP-1220U-RP) for future-proof scalable storage deployment.

4 x 2.5” SSD for caching

The TDS-16489U features an extra four 2.5” disk trays at the rear to provide SSD caching without taking space from hard drives. By installing high-performance SSDs, the IOPS performance of storage volumes can be remarkably boosted, making it ideal for random IOPS demanding applications such as databases and virtualization.

IPMI helps ease server management

IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) supports intelligent system monitoring, controlling, and hardware logs for TDS-16489U platform status such as system temperatures, voltages and fans. IPMI operates independently from the QTS operating system to allow administrators to remotely manage the TDS-16489U even when the system is powered down. IPMI provides a web-based management interface, supports power-down and rebooting from remote control and hardware monitoring and logs.
