Distinguishably powered by powerful processors, the TDS-16489U can deliver outstanding performance for data transmission and applications. While providing the power to handle CPU-demanding tasks and everyday application needs, the TDS-16489U's unrivaled performance provides the ability for businesses and organizations to improve their big data computing to gain further insights, opportunities and values.
- Server-grade hardware design - robust, reliable & innovative
Suited for enterprise environments which demand high performance, simplified IT management, uninterrupted service, and optimized virtualization environments, the TDS-16489U is designed with high-standard hardware specifications to meet those needs.
- Independent SAS 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 SAS controllers, for connectivity with up to 16 HDDs and 4 SDDs, ensuring each controller can fully utilize the maximum bandwidth to optimize performance and reliability.
- 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 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.
- Built-in 4 x 10GbE SFP+ ports
10GbE networks greatly benefit virtualization applications, data backup/restoration and massive data transmission. The TDS-16489U features four 10GbE SFP+ ports which can optimize system performance and assist businesses to flexibly build virtualization environments and increase productivity.
- Enable Auto Tiering with Qtier technology
QNAP's Qtier technology empowers the TDS-16489U with Auto Tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency. With Auto Tiering, the TDS-16489U can automatically move hot data to high-performance storage tiers and cold data to lower-cost, higher-capacity drives, making the TDS-16489U an extremely efficient shared resource.
- Double-Take Availability for disaster recovery for VMs
Besides offering server-grade virtualization environment, the TDS-16489U supports Double-Take Availability to provide comprehensive high availability and disaster recovery. You can use virtualization station to create a passive backup virtual machine for a primary physical server, or establish two virtual machines and make one active system and the other passive system. The backup virtual machine supports failover for the primary system whenever needed to enable data protection and continuous services. The backup environment using double-take replicates incremental data in real-time, remarkably shortening the time for migrating data and reducing bandwidth consumption.
- Powerful QNAP flexible volume
QNAP's flexible volume provides a more secure and flexible way to store NAS data. This 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.
- 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 TDS-16489U back to any point of time to prevent the loss of important data. You can take snapshots for both volumes and LUN, efficiently replicate volume/LUN snapshots to remote servers by only copying 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.
- Highly-efficient storage solution for video editing
Digital video production produces a significant amount of data that requires high-performance storage with sustainable throughput to meet the demanding needs of video editing. The TDS-16489U fulfills storage and video editing requirements with a high-speed 10/40GbE network interface. Videos can be quickly stored and edited on the TDS-16489U directly over the network.
- File synchronization across multiple devices
Qsync turns the TDS-16489U into a safe data center for file synchronization with a large storage capacity. Any file uploaded to the TDS-16489U will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops or mobile devices. Qsync is especially useful for frequent travelers to manage files and have updated files on different devices. Qsync provides multiple ways of file synchronization and group file sharing, greatly enhancing the flexibility of collaboration.
